Here goes nothing…

Welcome to yet another (future) medical student blog. After thinking long and hard about starting a blog, I finally decided—after some encouragement from my beloved wife—“Eh….why not?”

I enjoy writing, though I make no claim to any outrageous literary skill, and this could be a good outlet to just to record some thoughts and experiences that I might have as I pick my way through this whole process of medical education. And if in the process of me spilling the innards of my mind out into the internet someone is helped or perhaps learns something, then it’s doubly rewarding.

Of course, I suppose a little about me might be helpful. I’m currently in my final year at my state university, where I’m majoring in Biology (just like all the other little premeds) with a minor in Chemistry. I’m married to the most beautiful, amazing, intelligent, and loving woman in the history of forever (I suppose my opinion might be a bit biased, but so what? It’s true.). For the past two years, I’ve been working as an emergency department scribe, where I basically follow docs around in the ED and do all of their charting in real time for them. You might hear a bit about that later, as well as some other hobbies or past jobs that I have had.

Finally, I’m just wrapping up the process of applying to medical school. So far, it looks like I'll be attending Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago next year. I'm still waiting to hear back from one school (looking at you, Boston University), but my wife and I are excited to have at least a general idea of how the next four years are going to look. Should be...interesting, to say the least. As I write this, I'm just plodding through my last semester (with an annoying case of Senioritis, I might add...) and we're gearing up for a cross-country move this summer.

So here we go. Welcome aboard.
