Oh So Serious Decisions

I am sorry for not writing anything personal in so long. For the past few weeks I’ve been going through some kind of career and life crisis and maniacally wondering if I am really doing the right thing or maybe I should quit BCIT and go to med school instead, and I wasn’t really ready to talk about it. End result: I’m just going to keep doing my nuclear medicine/MRI thing for now. There are approximately 8 billion different factors involved in this decision and I still don’t feel 100% confident that it is the right decision, but at this point I think it makes the most sense.

I may write the MCAT at some point in the next year or so though anyway… just to see.

Things that have been on my mind: student life, stress levels, insomnia, mental health, $300K salaries, personal life, debt, moving, Canada, Australia, babies, traveling, 8 years, careers, boredom, prestige, homework, rotations, pre-requisites………… and on and on and on.

In other news Rob was back in town for a few days so we had him and Rose over for a little pizza and games night. We ate homemade chicken basil pizza and played 4 player Carcassonne (with 2 expansions) and MAGNETS. It was delightfully nerdy.

AND>> today we had venipuncture training at work and I am now allowed to inject patients starting tomorrow. SO SCARED. I hope my patients have gigantic veins. I will keep you posted. So far I DO have a 100% success rate, hehe. All four pokes.

Well that’s pretty much me all updated. What’snewwit’you?

  1. Guess what I got last week, Big Box Carcassonne (it has 5 expansions!!!!!) I say finish the diploma at least it can bring in more money than a min. wage job. I know its tough to decide, but at least for me with school I still have a semi-decent job while trying to get into school. PS I am on episode 31 of Australian master chef

    1. whoaaaa!!!! we shoulda got that big box set right from the beginning as well. the game is long enough with just 2 expansions, with 5 must be crazy!!! i wanna play!!

      who’s your favourite on masterchef so far?

      1. I actually really like Amina because she challenges herself. But I feel like mindy might win the whole thing.

      2. I haven’t had a chance to play properly yet, but I am hoping to soon. I was surprised it didn’t cost as much as I thought it might. Who’s your fav. master chef/what episode are you on?

        1. yaya i agree with you. i also like audra, or however you spell her name. she never even seems stressed out cuz she’s so good. we’re just watching episode 44 right now :D
