Whirlwind

These past couple of weeks have been an absolute whirlwind. This past week was the worst week of my life. Finals week is next week, but most of my teachers decided to give me finals this past week which really turned up the pressure. The most important test I had was Biochemistry. This class scares me the most because she only gives us a midterm and a final and not only is the information challenging to wrap your mind around, but she changes her testing style for each test. Our midterm was a beast of a test, and I do have to admit that I didn’t prepare as well as I should have, so I got a 67/100 on the test. I know that sounds low but most of the people in the class got around 40/100, so it kind of makes me feel a little better. Anyway, it is still bad, and I was determined that for the final I would rock this thing, because I have never really really really studied for a test in college and not rocked it. Well this test rocked me; I knew the information, I really did, but I just didn’t have enough time to finish it, which is worse to me than attempting it and getting it wrong. I got caught up on a stupid problem talking about Vmax and Km, and I didn’t realize that the multiple choice questions were really only half of what I had to do. I should have flipped to the back of test to see what else she wanted us to do; if I did, I would have seen that she wanted us to draw the Fisher and Haworth projections, as well as the chair conformations for A LOT of carbohydrates, and she had a lot of fill in the blanks and a good amount of pH problems. I didn’t finish the very last part which dealt with pH problems, and I was really really kicking myself about that. But you know what, the Lord has blessed me on so many other tests. If this is the class that I get rocked in, I’ll just have to accept it and move on. I’ll be ELATED if I get a B in this class, so we will see. Other than that stuff, I got a letter today inviting me to join the 2007 entering class of the Morehouse School of Medicine. So that brings the acceptances to 4!!! I’m excited but since they haven’t updated my fiancée on anything, I’m really not thinking twice about attending. For right now our eyes are set on Meharry since we both been accepted, and if Loma Linda accepts us, then we will definitely be going there. We should hear from Loma Linda by December 18, so keep us in your prayers, because that would be a dream come true.

I’ve truly, truly realized that the wedding day is for the woman, and that most opinions that I have about it should be kept silent, just to keep the peace. Now that I’ve realized that, wedding plans are going well. We are going home to Maryland this Christmas break to make sure all the plans are in place for the big event. I’m in charge of the guest list and the invitations (but as any guy who has gotten married before knows… I’m not really in charge in the end). I do know one thing that is all mine, and that is the honeymoon. I’ve had a lot of fun planning it and I’m really counting down till I can finally be married.

I’m still really tired from that Biochem test, so this post won’t be too long. I’ll post again soon once I get some strength back.
