Summer Tasks

My assignment for summer? “Start reading a medical dictionary and familiarizing yourself with terms.” OK. I’m heading down to Bruised Books this afternoon to hunt for a medical dictionary – that sounds like the kind of thing that a musty, old, used bookstore would have handy.

I just got my second round of Hepatitis B vaccine; the second shot comes 1 month after the first, and the third shot is five months after the second. The vaccine is required along with a TB test, Polio, MMR, DTP, and varicella(chicken pox) immunizations.

I also need to fill out my order form for scrubs, stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, and a couple other things. Hmmm…what color of stethoscope to get?

Four More Years of What, Exactly?

Pharmacy School starts on August 23rd. Four more years of memorizing, scheduling, stressing, and learning. It’s also four more years of growth, laughter, good times, and fun. Bring it on.

I hope to share my experience with you – from start to finish – so you know what to expect. So you know what not to be afraid of. So I can unravel the mystery of theseĀ  four years for you.

Everyone says, ” Well, it’s not necessarily harder…just different”.

WHAT does that mean?

I guess we’ll find out, won’t we?
