Day 278: 100 Days

You know what I realized today?

Within the next hundred days (give or take), I will have...
  • Lived in North Carolina for a year
  • Taken my MCAT
  • Completed (most of) my pre-medical courses
  • Returned to New York
  • Found out about internship programs
  • Won the Nobel Prize
  • Saved the world
Okay, so maybe the last two won't have happened (yet!) but ... how crazy is that? In 365 days, a whole helluva lot can change. It's crazy to think that 200-some days ago, I was a science virgin who could barely remember the elements on a periodic table. Now, not only can I read the periodic table (yep, it tells you more than just the elements), but I can read crazy structures like this:

acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin)

methamphetamine (speed)

And I can tell you what it means when "all preganglionic neurons secrete acetylcholine onto nicotinic cholinergic receptors" or what the anterior and posterior pituitary glands do. Hello?! I sound ridiculously intelligent! haha, I'm not saying I am, but it's crazy that all these big words make sense, you know?

My brain better look like this when this is all over.
