I went out during the after Thanksgiving Day Sale and bought a shower radio (mostly because everything else I wanted was already gone by the time I got there). I absolutely love music and love to sing in the shower so I have been meaning to buy a shower radio for quite some time. I was really excited about using it and my roommate thought I was crazy because I couldn't wait to take a shower to try out my new radio!

Tried it once. Tried it twice. Tried it once more. Now, I don't know if i...

I'm a faithful watcher of the show, Grey's Anatomy. Great show, not quite accurate, but great show. So I started to wonder...

Am I cut out to be a doctor if I really, really feel for people. I mean, I know I would make a good doctor. A great doctor. A different type of doctor. One who actually listens to her patients and lets them talk and listens to them and actually heals not only their body but also them to some extent. The kind of doctor that we are lacking.

I think one of my ...

I had written an article before about how some bananas "exploded" all over our kitchen and my lovely roommate left them for me to come back from my weekend at home and clean up. Well, after that, I just decided that I didn't want to go through this trouble anymore, and I would just clean the house on my own instead of asking for her help. It sucks, but it's better than dealing with crap from her.

Anyways, so she doesn't have to clean anymore, and I already clean up after her every now and t...

Background: So I'm taking this class about creativity and consciousness that basically integrates consciousness with music.

Today we had a lady come in to play the harp and it was amazing. I think I have heard the harp before in movies and CD's, but it's a totally different experience in person. It's soft sounds were so soothing and somewhat mystical and they made me feel as though I was in a different place altogether. I felt like I was in the rainforest and was listening to steady drop...

Ok, for real. What the hell. I just spent two hours helping someone do data entry just to help the guy out when I for sure did not need to, especially considering I hadn't eaten all day (I helped him until 8 p.m. without any food all day). On the way home I felt kinda good about it, thinking, hey I just did something really nice for someone. Maybe it'll help me out somehow. WRONG!! I walk into the door only to find a rejection from a medical school.

Honestly, I really can't take this ...

Ok, I am so pissed off right now. My roommate is incredibly dirty, extremely gross. She never ever ever cleans. I am the one who ends up cleaning the entire kitchen and entire bathroom on my own, she never vacuums, never throws out the garbage, never ties up the bag (but chooses to overfill it instead), never even cleans the counter after she eats (guess who does ALL that stuff?)... She doesn't even pay the bill until I say hey, pay the damn bill already!
And to top it all off, I went hom...

"I'm finding my way back to sanity again. But I don't really know what I'm gonna do when I get there."
~ Lifehouse (from Where I Want To Be)

(Although I've started realizing that sanity is all relative and somewhat illusory)"

It's hollow and dark grey. The tears are stuck. As if there is a clogging somewhere between my throat and eyes. There is a sense of urgency which I tend to ignore. My eyes check to make sure no one is watching. Then, I hide them as they slowly beg for some form of what I would be embarassed to call mercy. I am surprised to find the difference in what I once felt was loneliness and what I now feel is abandonment. I suppose it's the contrast by unconsciously having accepted an independent l...

The number one thing I have learned in my life is that if you depend on others at all, you will get disappointed. I don't know why people tend to act like if you ask them for a favor, no matter how minute, all of a sudden, the favor is like the biggest task in the world. Everyone does it! Even family, sadly. Anyways, that's why I place such an emphasis on being completely self-dependent...but every now and then, some things are just out of my control.

Yesterday, I got really peeved at som...

I was talking to some friends the other day about what people we went to high school with are up to nowadays (only a few years later), and we started playing our favorite game of "Who got fat." We started getting into gossip about who is engaged and what type of job these people had landed. I realized later that I would never have imagined myself discussing people's employment and marital statuses while I still get googly-eyed when I see a lollipop at the store. I can't even remember when we ...

I am planning on taking the MCAT's in April. I am currently taking a Kaplan course, but personally, I don't think it seems to have helped too much.

I have made notes over all the materials, and now I feel somewhat overwhelmed and stuck.

Any suggestions about how to go about studying? Any suggestions about what to focus on? Any suggestions about how else to prepare? Any suggestions at all about the wretched MCAT's would be very helpful.

Thanks.
