Well the summer is over and I am just putting the last few touches on getting my 5 (soon to be 6) year old's supplies in place. That's right the dreaded supplies list. WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A BOOK SOCK ANYWAY???? when I was little we called it a BROWN PAPER BOOK COVER. I hated the one's that people bought from the store. I could never get the folds to line up properly when covering the book. I was secretly jealous of others that did it really well. It was as if everyone else could do it but me . It really needed instructions that began with (TAKE YOUR TIME AND YOU CAN DO IT). This is how I feel about Pre-med prereq's for the "NON-TRADITIONAL WORKING OR UNEMPLOYEDM MARRIED OR SINGLE PARENT). Our lives are so different.
Well I am not working in the lab or anything medically oriented. I am working in corporate america. Yep you gotta do what you gotta do to feed your family. In due season God will give me that research position that I desire. (maybe I really don't). Anyway, my true desire is to get through all of the sciences that I will be taking and take the MCAT asap after that.
To think that I was actually going to apply to 2013. That has now changed to 2014 or whenever God will bless me to finish the preliminaries (sciences - MCAT - LOR's etc.) Sometimes I feel like a secret premed student TRAPPED IN CORPORATE AMERICA..... No one knows, No one there understands my true desire to be a physician, No one would probably really be able to relate if told anyway. That's why I am grateful for other NON-Trad friends that share the same DREAM.....Dream on future Doctors...... We will all make it with perseverance....
