interview season begins.

I'm already getting a little nostalgic about Philadelphia. We survived Pope Weekend 2015!!! People running/biking on the empty streets with military cars along the side felt surreal. Listening to mass amplified over the speakers (through the security fences, a mile away from the Pope) was sorta cool.  I was running around the city thinking: I might not be in this place in seven months. 



Interviews have begun for GPR/AEGD programs! I'm well on my way to preparing for this crazy hectic thing we call interview season. My classmates have already attended their ninth, tenth interviews and have been offered positions for their specialties. 

After I got my first interview invite, I pulled out my interview outfit from 2012 - I wore the basic pantsuit/blazer with silk ribbon top. Everything still fits but I don't have the abs of a 22 y/o babysitter anymore... Dental school will do that to you. I think it's fun to have a completely new outfit for this new phase of my life. I have a new navy blazer I LOVE and it would make me so happy to wear this to my interviews. And happy = confident.


In other life news, I did evening night clinic with my favorite patient... the one who brought me a HUGE chocolate bar at her last appointment. Things got out of control until we were the last ones on the clinic floor, laughing at the absurdity of the situation at 8:30PM with nobody around us and our amazingly patient faculty reading his newspaper. I learned a big lesson: temporary provisionals play a big role in gum health.



I got this shade guide from the instrument window and everything was organized so nicely in order. I had to snap a picture. Little things that are just so satisfying, ya know?

It's incredibly fun to imagine my new life in a new city somewhere. Even if that happens to be Philadelphia, I want to move to a new apartment (more in the city) and get a meow-y roommate. But I may be living in a spare bedroom in Texas or waking up from my tiny NYC shoebox to take the subway every morning. The possibilities! But first, I need to put in the work. 

What big project are you working on right now?
What's your perfect interview outfit?

    My med school interview outfit is so poorly fitted >_< I didn't change weight, but it was just huge and long in me. Time for shopping!

  3. the truth is Watches Replica that only enthusiasts are going to be buying items like this. Price for the watch is still near $160, and you can get a pretty darn good mechanical Seiko dive watch by knocking an entire “0” off of that price. Replica Rolex Watches As a watch lover, I am drawn to all the appeal and allure of the Grand Seiko Spring Drive Diver SBGA029 even if Replica Women Handbags Alexander Wang I know.
