Back To The Nonsense

So Im pretty sure I did well on my lab final. I was happy that there was a question on acid-base extractions and the chemical equations we had worked with this semester. We had to write a step by step procedure on extracting benzoic acid, p-nitroaniline, and naphthalene from a mixture using sodium hydroxide and hydrocloric acid. It was worth ten points and I am pretty sure I got the whole thing correct or at least 8, but most likely 9. I had thought this lab exam was easier than the last one she gave. Maybe Im just crazy?

Anyways, I just finished scanning in some IR spectrographs to study with. These next two weeks are going to be crazy! I have my lecture final on Monday, and then the Monday after that is the ACS exam! SHEESH! Im going to have to wake up early everyday and study everyday until the test begins to make sure I keep my A. The professor said that this time, spectroscopy is not an optional section on the test. So that means I have to study it all! What a bummer. I hate this class!

However, she is a slave driver and instead of studying right now, I have to complete a 10 page homework due tomorrow. I hope I can finish it! AND SHE BETTER NOT GIVE A STINKIN' QUIZ TOMORROW! I HATE THOSE QUIZZES!! Those quizzes are worthless to me. All they do is give me more chances to LOWER my grade, not raise it! UGHH!

So like I said, back to the nonsense!

ARGH I HATE YOU ORGANIC CHEMISTRY!!

Ik haat je de organische chemie
U bent niet welkom in mijn leven
Je bent nog erger dan mijn vijand
Want je hebt geen ziel

Thats right OCHEM! ga je naar de hel!!!!!

I cannot believe she is making us go through four chapters at once! In one week she wants us to read four chapters (200+ pages) and do a ten page lab, and do a 15 page homework. BY WEDNESDAY??? Why? Its just awful we are doing so much work at the last minute. I mean really! If you saw this coming then lets gloss over a few things that aren't such grand things for the stupid ACS test! OMG I CANT WAIT UNTIL THIS CRAP IS OVER! I BETTER GET AN A!!!!! DAMMIT!!!

Im going to bed, screw this sheeyot!

I HATE YOU ACS!!
You know, Im sitting here studying for this organic crap, and we have so much stuff to cover in such a short amount of time. I have to go over all this spectroscopy crap in a week or so and then have it on the class final and the ACS final. UGH!

The ACS final looks like crap. It looks like they want you to memorize every little thing. Oh screw them. YOU WONT THWART ME, ACS! GO TO HELL!

I am not sure how I will do on the exam. It looks hard, but that doesn't mean much. My professors tests are hard too. I hope she makes the next test easier since evryone scored so bad on this last test, ha ha! I wish! Not me, I got a 90 + 7 extra points, yeeow!! I hope to score at least "average" on the ACS, that way I will definately get an A in the class.

Oh yeah, and my lab final exam is Monday. I wonder what will be on it? I mean, we just had a test. I guess it will be longer? Maybe she will just look at our lab books? Who knows... oh wait I should check blackboard (another one of Satan's inventions!!!!).... nope no word.

well I guess I will just wake up early and get these chapters done. Sigh.

Not As Motivated

Ah HA! Royal Caribbean and Princess cruises both go to where I want to go in the Carribean. Take that TSA!

I just don't see how the "TSA butt search," as I like to call it, is going to stop terrorism. Spraying me with x-rays and MRI beams is not going to stop terrorism. You know what would have been better than these stupid machines? DOGS. Bomb sniffing dogs. Because if a terrorist has explosives up his bung-hole, the x-ray machine isn't going to pick it up. But a dog will. Imagine that, you are standing behind a guy who gets sniffed by the dog and the dog starts barking and pawing at his arse. How funny is that??? The dogs are very good at what they do and I would trust them more than some TSA agent who makes $10 an hour and could probably care less. What I also don't understand is why everyone is so willing to go along with this. I know there are not many other options, but the government shouldn't have this much power! When I become a doctor, I want TJ to take up flying again so he can fly us around. He will be my transportation expert. I will have none of this government nonsense.

Anyways, Ive not been motivated to study as what the title is referring to. Im trying to do my homework now. BORING. I know I should be studying harder but UGHHHHH!!! ENOUGH ALREADY!

December 15 cant come fast enough.

F*%K YOU, TSA! (edited)

Cursing dedicated to the TSA!

Im never going to fly commercial again.

The next time I fly, Im either pilot or co-pilot. Or in a helicopter flying to the hospital. Or they stopped trying to pretend that putting their hands on my boobs (or crotch) is a security measure.

Hello cruising! Good bye a$$holes at the airport.

Now how will I get to the Caribbean...

Black Friday Anyone?

I deleted my ranting post. No sense complaining about everything. I was dizzy all day anyways. I didn't cook or do anything because I didn't feel well.

I did wake up this morning to get black friday sales! I got a pair of New Balance sneakers, ugg knockoffs, and moccasins for $48! Then I went to ACE Hardware to get a Shop-Vac! I can't wait to use it! I want to see how it picks up bird feathers and seeds...

TJ and I will have Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. Working for Fedex doesn't give you much time off, and I appreciate that he worked this holiday to earn more money since Im not working. We have had so many expenses this year, that we made a good dent in our savings. Hopefully, we can replenish it soon. After my class is over, I plan to get a part time job to help buildup the savings again. Maybe I can work at Whole Foods or someplace I can get a discount on the stuff I buy. That would be nice. Or, TJ may be able to get me a part-time gig at this truck place that hauls for the post office. They pay good but no benefits. Which is okay because Im already on TJs insurance. We'll see.

Im also very excited that I am going to be visiting NY soon! I haven't been there in over a year now, or something like that, so I am actually excited to go. Meux Meux is coming too!

So now that my dizzy spell is pretty much over, I have to get cracking at the ochem. This professor is such a slave driver! We have labs and homework and tests all due together! ARGH! I don't know how I'm going to do all this. Throw in how boring it is and I have a really annoying class. UGH! I can't wait 'till its over!!!!

okay then

98% Average

Not bad. If I keep a 95 average in this class, I can get as low as a 72 on the ACS and still get an A. Hopefully, I will have a higher average than a 95 by the time the final rolls around. That way I can score even lower, haha! So if I keep a 98 average I can get a 68 on the ACS and still get an A. FUNNY!!

I am looking foward to next semester because I will have a new teacher and a new opportunity to get another LOR. One down, two to go!

Right now I am working on alkynes. This chapter is not as torturous, but is not great either. We have a quiz today. I am worried I will not do as well. I wish she would make the quizzes easier to balance out her hard tests. But that won't happen.

It seems like the rest of this semester will be pure memorization. From memorizing mechanisms and reagents to spectroscopy trends, there is a lot to remember. Its not fun. Nothing to help you memorize. I can't wait until this WHOLE class is over (including next semester!!!)

Okay back to work.

Oh, I See

So ochem starts off looking innocent... then comes the enormous memorization of useless crap. So I finally finished chapter 8, just the notes, and we are already moving through chapter 9. The professor says its an "easy" chapter. Oh yeah? We have a quiz tomorrow on chapters 8 and 9. I seriously hate this class. Very boring and inane. It's so hard to get motivated!

Anyways, I started on my packet to send to my old professor at KCC. I guess I won't finish until this weekend. I hope he doesn't think I'm all slow and stuff. I have to write out what I want the letters to say etc etc. Well, They are not due until June anyway. I still haven't heard back from the one I contacted at CCNY. Bummer. Not even a peep. Not even a "no"! Not sure if I should keep persuing it or not. Now Im glad I listened to TJ and switched schools for next semester. At least I have another teacher!

Im also worried about this stupid ACS exam. It seems like there is going to be a lot of questions on it. I hope I do well! I need an A! Sigh.

Okay, I should try to start studying. I am so unexcited about ochem, pffft.

Back To Chapter 8

Back to work on chapter 8. I am not excited. I must have read this one passage ten times to understand what the hell is going on with this permanganate cleavage. This part is just not descriptive enough and then they give this one example that is not easy to see just with what they explained to you. Well, at least Im up to the last section, polymerization. Then I have the honor of working through all the problems in the chapter. That should bring me great joy.

Once I get this chapter's notes in order, I should start on my last post lab report. Let's see if the problems are posted yet.... hm not yet. I wonder if she will post questions? Maybe it doesn't matter because there is supposedly no lab next week. I don't know how that is going to work. Do we just go home? That would be awesome! Well, I guess I will do the lab report then wait and see if the questions will be up later. I am very excited this is the LAST FREAKIN' LAB REPORT!!!

Then I guess I will start on some kind of flash cards to memorize this stupid chapter. Once that is done, I guess I can start on spectroscopy? Or maybe my info packet for my professor? I dunno. I probably won't get to half of this stuff today ha!

Okay back to polymerization.

I Forgot My Coffee Mug!

I forgot my mug at SHC. I hope no one throws it away, that would be terrible. So far working there is pretty nice. I can wear my scrub pants and khakis too! Awesome. I don't have to wear my static-y wool pants.

Im kinda bummed that I got no response from the one professor I thought was a sure thing for a recommendation. Meanwhile, I get a lightning fast reasponse from the one I didn't think would give me one at all. What a world, ha ha!

I have a very busy weekend ahead of me! I have to finish this demon chapter 8 and then start on spectroscopy. Our next test is in a little over two weeks, so I have to start memorizing this stuff now. UGH! Then I have to get some kind of "packet" together for my professor to read. I want to ship that out Monday or Tuesday. I hope he doesn't change his mind!!!!!!! I would be so sad!!!!

Anyways, I found a Georgian radio station, White FM (Ha ha, no, Georgia the country! Not some KKK station in Georgia the state!!) Im trying to find the Euro-Dance station, but no luck, hmm. Seems like they mostly play American top 40 music, mixed with some Georgian tunes. I like the alphabet, its unique.

I GOT ONE RECOMMENDER!!!

AND ITS MY MATH PROFESSOR!

I thought that sending him a request was such a crapshoot, but I made up my letters, and sent them out last night and he called me TODAY to say HE WOULD DO IT!!!!! OMG I AM BESIDES MYSELF!!!

Since he doesn't check his email, he said I could send him everything. I am going to see if I can meet with him in January. He has plenty of time to write the letters, they are not due until May - June next year. So I figure I can send him all the background info first like my resume, what has happened in the time since then, and what I would want the letter to say, etc and he can take his time to go over everything. Then in January, I can see how its going. I am not sure if the applications for 2012 will open by then but if they do, I can put the forms in his mailbox or hand them to him. Otherwise, come time to submit the application, I will send him the forms and he can send them to AMCAS and it will be done.

Now I have to see if the psychology professor gets back to me. I should have left a message in his voicemail but I figured he always checks his email. He should read it later today. I think his last class ends at 3pm ET. So I still have my fingers crossed. If he doesn't get back to me by the end of the week, I will call him and tell him I am going to email it again or send it by mail.

Now I just have to get an A in this organic class and the next one and I have TWO MORE LETTERS!!!! I could have FOUR! This may work out after all!

My Last PreLab!

And I am very happy! I hate these things!

It seems this last lab will be fast and easy. I don't know how we will get sunlight since it is a night lab, but I think we will use the UV lamps. In any case HURRAH!!!

However, we ARE studying three chapters at once. I just cannot make it through chapter 8! It is so incredibly boring and isolated. This is the kind of knowledge that when you start explaining to people who know nothing about this subject, they tune out, because it doesn't apply to anything they know of. At least when I was studying microbiology, I could explain it to anyone and anyone could understand because who isnt affected by bacterias and viruses? But alkoxymercuration? Come on, who cares? I don't even care! Just don't tell my professor! Shhh....

Okay this time I will make an earnest attempt at chapter 8. Only 30 more pages to go, yippee!!

First Day!

Today was my first day at SHC. It was nice! Great hospital. It's a far, far, cry from CIH, but that's probably because SHC is a private hospital. Im going to try to volunteer there as long as I possibly can because when I get into medical school, I want them to know I worked there and that should help them favor me for a residency. I know it's years ahead, but some things need to be sowed way in advance. When I finally get the hang of all the areas of the hospital, I will mosey my way to where the offices of the residency people are and see what kind of information I can get from them. If I am lucky, I will get in at U of A and I can stay at SHC until I apply for residency, unless that is some kind of conflict of interest. We'll see, otherwise, Im in! And I got my SHC shirt today. Whoo hoo!

Other than that, I have a slight headache, and I am not interested in studying ochem. I would however, rather work on my emails to my professors asking them about the LORs. I plan to finish that by Monday and send them off by Monday or Tuesday. I can't remember if we need to do a pre-lab this week and that extra time would be great but I think I will do it anyway. It would be the last pre-lab!! There is a light at the end of the tunnel! A little over a monthe left of this class!!!!!

I just hope I havn't shot myself in the foot by taking biochemistry with organic next semester. If this next teacher is as hard as my professor, Im screwed!

Not Interested

In studying today.

I am also no interested in having to go back to "The Limited" to return a $17 belt that didn't go with my pants afterall. I hate how these department stores ask for your phone number and email address. I mean sometimes its good because you would want their coupons, but generally I don't care. I managed to find a belt that worked at Wal-Mart. For $8. Sheesh. You know they were both faux leather belts and I am sure they were made in the same factory in China.

Anyway, I used to love shopping, now I can't stand it. Nothing ever fits me right. My legs are a too long for petite, but a usually a little too short for regular so I always have to hem something. Then I can't wear tailored shirts because my boobs expand the buttons too much, but if I get a shirt that fits over my boobs, it's just too big and I look like Im wearing a man's shirt. So whenever I wear a tailored shirt, I have to close up all the gaps between the buttons with tiny pins. That takes at least ten minutes because I have to get the pin just right so the material doesn't bunch up. Ugh! You get it. And you know what else? Its not easy finding my bra size either. It's either EVERYONE has my size or they just don't make them in my size. I have to go to special stores to get the bra I want. And no, it's not Victoria's Secret. VS's bras make my boobs TOO big, I definately do NOT want to go out with such a huge rack. It's ridiculous that women try to make their boobs so freakin' large. Why the hell would they want that? When I used to work for Fedex, I would approach the receptionist or concierge, and they would usually have this huge rack sticking out of a very low cut shirt. It's hard to concentrate when you have to look down at someone to talk to them, but all you see is breast on the desk. With freckles. Because they tan too much. Sad.

So hurrah hurrah, I made it to 120 pounds. Now that none of my clothes fit me, I think I will have to buy a new suit and some interview clothes soon. At least pants. Luckily I saved one pair of size 6 pants, and I will have to wear those in the meantime. This weight is very light and I feel like anyone can grab me at anytime. At least when I was 140, I can put up a better fight. Or "give them a big surprise" as my mother would say. She did say I should quit Fedex because it was making me too big. No ma, its the steroids! Ha ha.

Now that its 8pm, I am not sure if I want to get started on studying any of this organic nonsense. I DO feel like I want to eat ice cream. Yeah tough choice, ice cream or organic chemistry, hmm. Well I do have to make another loaf of bread so I will see what I can eat then I guess I should get back to organic.

Excessive Bromine

I didn't know ochem had an ongoing love affair with bromine. Seems like every reaction I do involves bromine. Im going to name my first born Bromine.

I Got a 90!

Thank goodness! I was scared I'd get in the 80s. The only problem is that I didn't get the high score. I know I'm happy that I got an A, but I still want to be the best! Oh well. I guess as long as I get an A, I should be okay, right? Ha ha ha! Sometimes, I just can't help being competitive. Especially when I have an opportunity to be the best.

I did well on my lab exam too! I got a 48/50. Thats an A as well. I was worried Id do worse on that test than the lecture exam. I hate lab. I think I said that about a million times already.

I cannot wait until this class is OVER! UGHH!!

Right now, we basically have to study three chapters at once. This is terrible. I also found out the schedules of the professors I want to ask recommendations from. And they have no schedule! They won't be teaching when I will come to NY! So now I have to ask for the letters over the phone and emails. What sucks about that is that it will be easier to reject my request when I am not standing in front of them. I will have to ask them if I can meet them in their office anyways. Maybe they will? I think the one from CCNY will do it, but I am not sure about the one from KCC. I would really want one from him because he would be a perfect recommender for the dual degree. I just have to hope he will find my request convincing and compelling. He wrote me a recommendation before, so I hope that helps...

Then on Fridays I get up early to do my volunteer stuff. I have to remember to log my miles so I can deduct them from my taxes. I hope this volunteer position doesn't suck like the one I did at Coney Island Hospital. SHC is really nice, and I will want to apply for a residency there "when" I graduate from med school! (hahaha)

So now I have to correct my test (she will give us half points back!) and study chapter 8 for tomorrow's quiz (booo! hiss!!) Then conjure up some way to write some very convincing emails and phone messages.

And you know, I have to schedule time to study for MCAT soon... Im scheduled in March, that's practically around the corner! I guess that will be on the agenda this weekend too.

UGHH!!

FINALLY Getting Sheeyot Right!

This ACS book has been nothing but a jerk to me as I study until I get to the section on substitutions and eliminations and I got ALL but ONE correct!! Hurray!

Now I have to hope they are heavy on this chapter for the test ha!

Hooray! Im at SHC!

I start next week! I will be shuttling people/objects around. Sounds like my old job. I took the transport position because I get to go to all different departments and meet different people. This should be helpful.

And I have a nice headache today. I am not interested in reading the chapter of spectroscopy. Or making a new study schedule for the ACS and MCAT. And Im hungry. I still have one pound to go. Thank heavens there is no post-lab and pre-lab due this week! Hallelujah!

I started looking at the GMAT books yesterday. I think I need to study well for that exam. I know it looks simple, but I finally started to do some of the sentence correction stuff and I get about 50% because I don't know the English rules to well. My goal is to start studying for that test AS SOON AS THE MCAT IS DONE. So then end of March about. I have to take it next year because they are going to change the test in 2012 and I don't want to buy all new study books. So next year will be the year of the tests!

Man, I can really go for some oatmeal now...

There are at least three things to do this weekend: (1)Read chapter on spectroscopy (2)Read chapter 8 (3)Complete chapter 5 in ACS.

UGHHHHH!!! NOT fun. Only a little more than a month left, I hope I can last without pulling my hair out. I just can't find anything interesting about this subject. I guess I wouldn't have made a good pharmacist after all, haha.

Okay I need some oatmeal then Im off to read this boring stuff.

Test 2 Done

I don't think I got a 99 like last test, but Im hoping for an 80+.

There were so many questions! We have an hour and fifteen minutes to answer 20 questions with 5 - 10 PARTS!!! The girl next to me was just staring at the questions for like 10 minutes. I don't think she answered everything. I did, but that doesn't mean I got them all correct, ha! But an answer is better than no answer, for no answer is definately wrong. I think I screwed up the configuration questions because I was going so fast, I didn't even check if the molecules were even the same. Oh brother. Well, it's done with now.

Now I have another test and the ACS final to look forward too. Oh joy!

Only A Day Away

I am not finished with chapter 7. Lucky me. I am going to stay up as long as I can to do problems once I am finished with this chapter. Then I will wake up early tomorrow, like 0500 and just do as many problems as I can in the book. It will be a long day, just like the last test.

Well, by this time tomorrow, I will be back home and depressed, ha!

I miss truck driving...

Thank You Sir, May I Have Another?

Quite frankly, I am getting tired of these studying posts. So maybe I will talk about something else.

Since I couldn't sleep last night, I was up looking up more info on med schools I actually have a chance of getting into. There aren't many. Especially if I can't secure recommendations, i.e., I get a C in this g-d-forsaken class! Im assuming I won't, but thinking of the worst motivates me. Does that make me odd? Even if there is almost a zero chance I will get a C in this class, I will assume there will be a catastrophe and I will get a C. I don't want a B either, but an A in this class is VERY hard to get, but I still have an A so I am hoping to keep it that way.

Anyway, the school list is this (and I will update my sidebar appropriately later): University of Arizona (MD/MBA), University of Arizona (MD), Hofstra University (MD), Uniformed Services (MD), Morehouse (MD), George Washington University (MD), University of Pittsburg (MD), American University of the Carribean (MD), Ross University (MD), A.T. Sill Mesa (DO), A.T. Still Kirksville (DO).

This is the tentative list. If I can secure more recomendations, know my grades and MCAT score, I can make a much better list. I will apply to the rest of the DO schools the next year because I don't have any DO recommendations. The two I listed don't require a DO recommendation.

Sometimes, I look at this list and my chances and I am like "geez, what a stupid endeavor" because I am not the type to take chances with my money like this. But the difference this time is that I have been working for years already and I am getting nowhere anyway. Might as well try something to see if something good happens. Truck driving will always be there! Well, I assume it will...

I guess it's time for more studying! Hurrah! Pfft.

More Studying

I am not sure if I should go earlier and see the professor during office hours to go over the homework or if we are going to go over the homework after the lab test? I don't have too many questions but I also don't know what she is going to throw at us during the exam so I am wondering if she will give us some clues to the test?

I think I will do okay on this lab test, but I am still scared of the lecture test. If its anything like the "Practice Problems" she gave us to do, one hour to do all that is not enough!!! ARGH! Very nervous.....

I guess I will finish up going over lab stuff and then we'll see how I feel about leaving early.

Hi Netherlands and Russia!

Wow, I didn't know the readers of this blog were in the Netherlands and Russia! Thanks!

Im sure it's because of my Russian page hahahah.

As for the Netherlands, Im not sure what draws the crowd from over there. Unless its an ex-boyfriend? Well, in any case, thanks for visiting my webpages and blog. There is a sidebar now for comments.

Its past midnite here and I am STILL studying for this crappy crap. I hate you organic!

WOW my facepaint is from when I just started as a driver HAHAHA!! I think I need to update that! Yeah, I thought I was going to update my page but it turns out I am spending enormous amounts of time trying to get an A in this class. Sigh.

Wish me luck tomorrow!
