On another note, I spent last week reading up on medical school application details. I will begin writing my medical school admissions essays this week. It is very difficult to sell yourself in 1500 words, but I will give it my all. Nothing but the best and no regrets, right? The next few weeks will be exciting! The journey is still unfolding. More to come.
Here I am in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I am currently serving as the Heidelberg College assistant men's tennis coach. Each year, our team travels down to South Carolina for spring break tennis. We will play 4 matches this week before returning to Ohio. I am writing this entry with great excitement. Aaron Blue (the gentleman I will be traveling to Africa with) and I have booked our tickets to Johannesburg, South Africa. We will be meeting in Dallas, TX and then flying together to our destination. We depart on May 28, 2007 and will be returning on July 18. THE TRIP IS FINALLY SET IN STONE! It is very important that I increase the effort to raise funds. I have drafted a letter to obtain sponsorship that I plan to send out in around a week. I also need several immunizations in the upcoming weeks. I've always felt preventive medicine is a better option than reactionary treatment. Thus, the immunizations are a must.
