PD1 and Done

Hello everyone!

It has been way to long since I have posted, so I thought I just give a brief update of my life now that I have no more excuses for not posting. After having 8 tests in the past 10 days, I have been just a little bit swamped so I cannot explain how happy I am to come up for a breath of air.  While just about everyday for the past 10 felt like I was slowly and painfully crawling to the finish line, I can say it has been quite the knowledge-full journey and IT IS OVER….for now.  I can say definitively that I have more knowledge in my head right now (even with the fact I’ve probably already declined since 10am yesterday) than I have ever had in my life. It feels great to be the smartest I have ever been!  Just don’t ask me about nicotinic antagonists, rate of sheer, toxiplasma gondii or blue baby syndrome in three weeks.

I just wanted to say what I few of my summer plans are so you know what I am going to be talking about in my blog that I actually plan to write in.

– Puebla Service Trip: Tomorrow I am going to Mexico through the MPSA Puebla Service Trip.  We will be conducting health-screens at clinics in rural Mexico. I CANNOT wait and will be do an exciting blog post upon my return!

-Camp Sioux: I will be volunteering as a pharmacy intern at a summer camp for children with Type I Diabetes in North Dakota.  I have always wanted to be a camp counselor at a sleep-away camp, so now I get my chance!

-IPPE: I will be doing my first year rotation at Allina Health Ritchie Pharmacy.  I don’t have any experience in community pharmacy, so I am excited to learn about this new type of pharmacy.

– Marathon training- I have officially signed up for the Twin Cities Marathon in October, so there is no backing out now! While pharmacy school makes it a bit challenging to train as much as I would like, I am excited to finally have time to train (and to have it not be 0 degrees out)

Otherwise, I will be continuing to work at UMMC as an inpatient pharmacy intern and will be working on a research project with a toxicologist at Regions Hospital.  It should be a very exciting and productive summer, with  plenty of time for relaxation and fun too! While I don’t think Minneapolis weather has gotten the memo that it is summer yet, hopefully it figures that out soon.  Anyways, I want to thank my amazing classmates for a fantastic year and to all you blog-readers who (partially) read my sometimes ridiculous and long blog posts.
