FALL 2011 - Excited and Ready!!!!!

Hi all,
Guess what..... I am soooo ready to take the plunge into Fall 2011 classes. 
  • Get financial aid in place - check
  • Register for classes - check
  • Order books - check
  • Excited about my progress - check
  • Grateful to the Lord for his Mercy and Love during this journey - DOUBLE CHECK.....
Jobs update - God has blessed us again!!!! My husband and I have both started working.... Now I am in another league.  "The I work fulltime and am a fullltime student" league.  Folks I think that the key is to take 1 (one) science class (yep that's right) at a time when you are working fulltime.  It is better to do well than rush all the pre-reqs and do poorly.  I think I have the right concept in my mind now.

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....


  1. When I was a kid we folded up the Sunday comics to create those book jackets. Boy was I surprised to find that I had to buy cloth ones for my kids. Full time mom, worker and student...I'll be praying for you because you have a lot on your plate.

  2. you are soooo kind. Thanks for your prayers also. I need prayer all the time.

  3. You are so right about taking your time and doing it right. Getting into medical school is a marathon not a sprint, so take your time. Congratulations to you and your husband for both finding jobs. I'm still praying God will bless me with a full-time clinical position very soon.

  4. Praise God from whom ALL blessings come! And good luck this semester!!!

  5. ftrybfMD - he will do it friend...just keep applying. I follow the formula from the bible that says "ask and it shall be given+seek and you shall find=knock and the door shall be opened...with and enzyme called:'you have not because you ask not'....

    Path201x - miss you friend....your an inspiration all by yourself....
