ABRCMS

November 13, 2006

So I had a great time in Anaheim, California for the Annual Biomedical Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS). Here is a break down of how everything went:
WEDNESDAY
So we left Alabama at like 7 a.m. and arrived in Dallas/Ft. Worth around 10:45 a.m. During our layover there we saw Eddie George (retired form the Tennessee Titans) […]

Uncharted Pathways

July 19, 2006

You know, its an odd thing. You think you are going one place, and the Lord leads you somewhere else. And even though you may absolutely dislike where He is sending you, somehow you know that where He wants you to be is where you will be the happiest. I recall when it came […]

Verified!!!

July 13, 2006

My AMCAS is verified!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Heck yeah! Lol. Sorry, but I was about to write an entry basically laying out my plans to drive the 30 minutes to the AAMC building in D.C. and disembowel whoever is letting my AMCAS application sit on their desk. But it looks like I won’t have to do that. […]

I’m an idiot (truly)

July 3, 2006

Today I truly felt like an idiot. For all those premeds out there…its very important to retain certain tidbits of information, even from classes you hate. I HATED general chemistry class. It was just an overglorified math class to me, and I’m really not fond of math. Now I can get an A in pretty […]

I’ve gotten a little more rest so I can actual concentrate as I’m writing.

June 22, 2006

I’ve gotten a little more rest so I can actual concentrate as I’m writing. As you all know I’m currently in a summer research program at Johns Hopkins University in their Department of Biology. I know this is going to sound weird coming out of my mouth, but I am actually excited about my research […]

June 20, 2006

Wow, so much has happened while I’ve been gone. Its so nice to see so many new writers on the site. I’ve been pretty busy, but I don’t want to make this post too long. As most of you all know, I have been on a NAPS mission in Lake Charles, LA for the […]

Hey everyone!!! Once again I apologize for not writing for so long, but I’ll fill you in on what has happened so far.
So much has happened it is really crazy. I guess I’ll start with how the Lord has visibly worked in my life. If you have read my past entries, you know that […]

Today was a tad bit stressing. In my last post you guys read about how I was looking into acquiring an apartment for this upcoming school year. Well, that’s scrapped now, and I’ll be living on campus. Basically, the apartment that we wanted to live in required that I sign, my roommate sign, my mom […]

August 6, 2004

Today was my poster day for my research program. It was pretty cool actually. You basically stand in front of your poster until both of the judges that are supposed to see your poster see it. After that, other people come around and ask you questions about your poster or they ask you to take […]

My my my, what a day I’ve had. Its actually 2:30 in the morning on Friday, but because I love yall, I’m going to post my journal.
Research went pretty well today. I took my brain sections out of the cyroprotectant and put them into a well plate filled with PBS. I have to rinse […]

July 28, 2004

Today, as it relates to research, was actually a very good day. That is quite a statement seeing as how yesterday I wanted to find the nearest beaker, break it and jam one of the shards into my jugular vein (yeah it was that bad).
Today I actually sat down with my mentor, Dr. Zhang. […]

July 27, 2004

I am convinced that research is an instrument of the devil. Ok, not really, but let me give you a little background info.
I’ve pretty much known all my life that research wasn’t for me. I just don’t have the attention span and patience to deal with it. But when my school said that the […]
