Wow. What a summer.

#throwbackthursday to when I was confident I was going to get my M.D. and become a clinical doctor.
#waybackwednesday to when I was going to get an M.D./Ph.D.
#flashbackfriday to when I was going into environmental consulting

As the last few days of BSURF are coming to an end, I’m adding more and more career options to the list and creating more hashtags to reminisce on the times when I thought I knew what I wanted to do. Coming into college, I thought that I was going to be #pre-med and follow the classic route. After working in a research lab freshman year, I was even more confident since I hadn’t enjoyed the laboratory research life that much. Yet for some reason, I’m #loving research life now. Maybe it’s because I have more time to work on my project and actually feeling like I’m accomplishing something. Maybe it’s because I have a new lab work environment. Whatever it is, it’s #enjoyable.

So while my career and academic major plans have changed a #bajillion times, I’m okay with that. As of right now, I think I might want to pursue the #MSTP route and get an M.D./Ph.D.

All I 100% know is that science is changing. Discoveries are made every day. What I knew yesterday is no longer accurate today. There’s always something new to learn, and I’m #blessed to receive funding from BSURF to enable that.
