A Black Female Medical Student

Posted on: August 20, 2009

Sigh….

So I got my draft back from my mentor. She says I’m doing well. You wouldn’t know that from the amount of black marks she made on my paper though haha. Plus she came up with a whole bunch analyses that she wants me to perform this wknd… I’m just like, you do know this thing is due Monday, right lol? I don’t even know if I have enough space in my paper to discuss all that crap. I’m really going to have figure out how to trim it down when it comes time to submit it for publication in a journal. They don’t play with those word limits haha.

I really appreciate the feedback though, and the amount of time she met with me this summer. I think I’m starting to semi-understand this whole research thing, and I think I can see myself making it a significant part of my medical career.

Our paper is due Monday and presentations are Wednesday. I’m trying to get a group of my friends together so we can practice before Wednesday comes around.

So…. yeah.

Once this is over, I plan to relax here for a week, and then take myself home so that I can spend sometime with friends and family. Also so that I can make some money. I don’t want to start of the year broke! I had plans to go to Africa in September, but that probably won’t happen.

I have this crazy idea that maybe I could conduct a small research project there. Now my aspirations are bigger, cuz I wanna see if I can get some type of funding and ish. So I’ll need a few months to prepare.

Sigh.

Anyways.

That’s what’s going on.

Peace.
