For the most part life is better at the moment. I’ve been talking to Dan every night on the phone which has helped a lot, and I’m starting to mentally map out how I can take over work so that it’s more efficient and productive…
But today it dawned on me that I start class again in 17 days. I’m taking a chemistry class online, which in and of itself ought to be an adventure, and it brings me one baby step closer to finishing the pre-reqs for IPAP.
After this class I will need:
– 1 more term of Chemistry (I’ll be like .5 credits short, cuz this class I’m taking now is quarter credits instead of semester)
– 8 cr. Anatomy & Physiology (with lab)
– 4 cr. Microbiology
– 3 cr. Medical Terminology
That’s do-able!! But if I’m going to get it done by January 2013 so I can apply, I need to start getting stuff done. And I’ll need to start shadowing a PA when I get home, and get my letters of recommendation written, take the SAT…. Ahhhhh!!!
This next year is going to be absolutely crazy. And the wedding is probably going to take back seat to class at some point, cuz I need all the help I can get trying to get into IPAP, and right now I have a 3.66. Which is not good enough to get in, especially since my GPA at LU was like a 3.18 or something. So the tricky part is knowing how far I can push it. Last semester I took two classes, both with labs, and it was a lot of class time, but the work wasn’t too bad. But I know that A&P will be tricky for me because it’s a lot of memorizing.
But I’ve got this, and Dan keeps saying that he’s behind me on this. And I’m going to hold you to that my love when I’m gone five nights a week at class. 😉
I think in the long run, this is going to be the easyt part.
