Off to a great start

School started yesterday, and already I felt I’m off to a great start.

The Student Directed Seminar is happily on its way, having just finished the 2nd session today. The class seems very engaged and excited, and the ideas spawning off were just awesome. I can’t wait to start learning web programming with these guys.

In terms of my new year resolution #1 and #2, they are both doing great as well. Went to the gym twice already, and I feel like a champ. Also prepared my resume to throw at some jobs overseas (if I get to do research in Taiwan, that would be pretty damn awesome). From what I can tell right now, I would be surprised if I end up staying in Vancouver this summer.

Finally, one piece of good news topped it all off today: an interview invitation to UBC med.

I was quite flattered by a fellow pre-med who stumped across my MCAT essays a few days ago and linked me on her blog with a caption: “ZeroRatio’s road to MD”, and I was also a bit embarassed because nothing on this blog had anything to do with med school in 4 months. But with the newest installment, I guess I could start worrying about interviews out loud.

Oh, aren’t I worried that I might not get past this interview and I have to come here and admit defeat? No, I would just blog about my defeat then, which would also make interesting reading material I’m sure.

So please stay tuned for much more mumbling about everything that comes to me in a great 2009!

(Oh, and this blog officially turned 1 year old yesterday. Check out the first blog entry on January 5, 2008)

  1. good. i like this layout.
    i didnt actually read this entry cuz there were too many words, school has started, and i saw “Student Directed Seminar” “#1” “#2” and “MCAT”
    so i decided my brain would probably explode if i read it. please forgive me.

  2. You are forgiven. This layout is actually my old one before November’s photoblogging event. I’ve used it for many months throughout last summer. 😉
