My junior year of college is now in full swing and it’s awfully exciting. Since there are many people who are important in my life and I cannot call every one of you and update you on what’s going on, I’ve decided to dust off this blog and give you a peek into my latest adventures. That is, after all, half the reason I created it in the first place.
To answer the first question people have: my summer was good. I lived in an apartment down here in Cedarville. My time was split between working full time as a pharmacy technician, taking physics at a nearby community college, and running. That left time for a 50th wedding anniversary party (Congratulations, Grandma and Grandpa!), two weddings and a couple visits home. Though I regret not being home for the summer, I did grow in unexpected ways and did truly enjoy my summer.
This year I am living in a unit with seven other girls. Five of us are pharmacy majors and it’s already been so much fun! As far as classes go, I have a lighter load this semester since I’m only taking four classes. That, however, in no way means I’m working any less hard. One of those classes is the dreaded Human Structure & Function (essentially A&P). Besides studying for that class, I fill my free time with intramural soccer, Club 517 (the ministry to middle schoolers I’m part of), working, unit dinners and tea drinking (it’s an important thing in our unit). I’m also looking forward to using this new-found free time to become more involved in pharmacy related outreach (more about that in the future, I’m sure).
Speaking of pharmacy, as many of you already know, I have completed and passed the PCAT (pharmacy admissions test; comparable to the MCAT for doctors) and am now beginning the next step of applying to the school of pharmacy. It’s hard to believe that in just one year I will be weeks into my first year of the doctorate program, wearing the coveted white coat, having earned the title “student pharmacist”.
This year holds a lot of exciting potential and I can’t wait to see it all unfold. As I wrap up, I’d like to share a couple of prayer requests for those who’d like to know how to pray more specifically for me. Because of my various involvements, I am in a position to share Christ’s love with a number of people in specific ways. Please pray for wisdom for me and softened hearts for them. I know this is personal and slightly unusual but it’s important to me.
Thank you so much for your support of me–your encouraging words make such a huge impact on my days.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I just discovered two spiders hanging out above my bed that I need to take care of.
