I'm officially am a *junior* and though I had long since deemed blogging as a "ridiculous waste of time meant only for the care free frosh and fall semester soph"... I've gone back on my words and decided blogging may help me improve my MCAT essay writing score to that perfect unattainable "6" or "T".

What have I been up to since my last post (oh IAP so long ago)? Well, I suppose my life unexpectantly changed when Angi finally convinced me over Christmas break to enter the Biological Engineering lottery "Jess, BE Lab even counts under Premed requirements!" LOL.
I entered, accepted, and am now going to be part of the first class EVER at MIT to graduate with a degree in Biological Engineering. :) That being said, BE put me through alot my spring semester which is why I may not have had the time to blog, breath, or do normal teenager things (22 days left to enjoy teenagerness!). I know, it was a sad semester in which I completely stopped working out and became best friends with my laptop.

I'd say it was worth it because I like all my fellow Course 20ers and for me it's that tight knit bond that keeps me going :). Plus, I always liked building and creating and Biology just seemed a bit too dry. Picture from the end of the year BE Lab party. Notice the cool green shirts-


So winter was depressing but then there was spring break! I went with a Ptar, a Kwang, a Paul Yang, a GLin, Angi, CSK, TChen, and an MZ to a ROAD TRIP from Boston to NYC to D.C. just in time for the Cherry Blossoms. Beautiful. It was eventful, stressful, hilarious, and unforgetable all rolled into one week of craziness. Road_trip_like_whoa forever. RESPEKK!!! Us in Times Square.Then the semester quickly wrapped up with Ring Delivery ( I GOT MY BRASS RAT <3 onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/7835/1188/1600/IMG_1534.jpg">

and then there was Sigma Kappa rose sales for Alzheimer's Research! We sold a record breaking 1700 roses and though it was such a hard week to organize The money we raised was worth it. And seeing 1700 red roses was pretty amazing as well.
My amazing little who helped out like none other-
only some of the roses-


Plans for the summer currently include continuing my UROP in the Lippard lab (studying the electron transfer pathway in touluene monooxygenase a.k.a. selling my soul and free time) and studying for the MCAT test in August (eeeek!). But I'm living in the air conditioned New House (right next to Next House) and among some of my favorite girls ever.

Come visit me this summer! I won't really have that much time but in any case email, im me.
