Oh where or where did my physics review go?
Well it's pretty much gone to hell in a hand basket, LOL!!! I've pretty much given up on Physics, at least for now, because making scores of 6-8 do a number on my self-esteem. So I decided to move on to Chemistry and my confidence was promptly increased when I scored a "10" on the first section without even reviewing it, including 2 passages where I got all the answers correct!! So today, I'm going to review the material from Chapter 1, take an AMCAS exam on that particular section, then see how it goes score wise!
I'm on "spring break" from school, although when you work a demanding job full-time, there really is no Spring break! But at least I can take time this week to catch up on my MCAT studying because I'd really like to take the exam by August of this year. My thinking at this point is to get the damn test out of the way ASAP, then focus on getting my GPA back up to at least a 3.7 (took a hit with one of my grades last Fall). As some of you may know, a 3.5 in grad school just isn't impressive especially given the fact that I finished my first Master's in Chemistry with a 3.75.
I also had a girl's nite out Friday and went to a place called Busboysandpoets in DC and had a blast!! The food was good, the ambiance was even better, and it was just nice to get out among female adults and have a good time. I think I got in at around 1:30AM and I hadn't that where I wasn't around family in over 10 years!!! When you're a working Mom you forget just how important it is to do fun things for yourself! So yeah, we're gonna make that a habit at the very least, every 2 months or so!!!
Well, it's an especially beautiful day with surprisingly warm temps outside today in Metro DC, so we're planning to spend a good amount of time outside!! Hope you enjoy your day today as well!!! :)
