What I Did On My Summer Vacation

Sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately. I been working the past couple of weeks (when the weather cooperates) and I haven’t felt much like doing anything except sleep when I get home.

I considered doing a research project this summer, but figured this will probably be the last opportunity to save up some extra mad money to get me through the rest of med school.

I work construction and the physical labor along with the hot sun really takes it out of you by the end of the day. Especially if you’re a pasty soft med student whose been sitting on his duff all winter long.

I’m starting to get back into the swing of things now. I’m not nearly as tired this week. The first two weeks my tail was dragging.

It’s a good job but I wouldn’t want to do this for a career. It pays really well and beats a lot of other summer jobs out there. I definitely wouldn’t want to do this in the winter.

Hi guys, Student loans cover my actual expenses, of coarse. However, I like to work so I can pay for stuff like those new speakers. ;)

This will probably be the last summer though. I plan to do a research project of some sort between 2nd and 3rd year.

be safe doing all that work, totally respect your determination, hehe.

i'm lucky i have full paid scholarship so i do not need to worry about the tuition. but, i guess i should try to earn my own money sooner than later.

Hi Xiang Mei: I don't have a research project lined up yet. I hope to have a better idea of what specialty I want to go into by then and I'm going to try to do research in that area.

Frankie: I could get by without working, but the extra money gives me an added sense of security knowing it's there.
