Pharmacy Adventures

Monday, July 11, 2011

I really shouldn't be blogging...

... because I've been up since 6:30AM
... have to wake up at 7AM tomorrow (technically this) morning
... had to watch 15-year-olds all day
... dealt with phone-call pranks from said 15-year-olds
... couldn't sleep because Beatty towers is so damn cold.

So I won't :)

Changing schools is complicated.

For my own mental organization, here is a list of everything I have done/have to do to to transition into UNC:

-Send high school transcripts (why? I have no idea)
-Send UF transcripts
-Send BCC transcripts (for my ONE class I took in high school, blah)
-Send AP exam scores
-Get 2 TB tests done after March 31st, and 1 to 3 weeks apart
-Get a Varicella titer* (since I've had the chicken pox before)
-Get a Hepatitis B titer*
-Send immunization results/records to the University
-Send immunization results/records to School of Pharmacy (yes, it is separate)
-Set up utilities in new apartment
-Get renter's insurance (required?!)
-Transfer car to my name
-Get car insurance
-Set up store transfer to a CVS in Chapel Hill
-Apply for promotion to intern at CVS in Chapel Hill
-Buy textbooks
-Buy a clicker for class (noooo, not these again!)
-Read Anatomy of Hope for summer reading (to be discussed with faculty adviser at beginning of class, WHAT?!)
-Obtain UNC One Card (going to miss using my Gator1 =[ )
-Complete plagiarism training module
-Complete OSHA training

Oh and I forgot... I still have to pack up my life!!!

The only way to get through this list is one-by-one. Luckily (heh) I have done a lot of things on this list already. So no worries, right?

*Titers test for immunity of something. So since I am claiming to have had the chicken pox, and didn't get a vaccine, I need a titer to test if I actually am immune.

Where did all of my pictures go?

Well, I got at Google+ account. And they had an album of all my blog pictures.

I deleted it because I didn't want that album there, but I had NO IDEA that it would delete my pictures on the blog!

What's on your fridge?

The phrase "fridge-worthy" definitely applies in my family. Growing up, there were always good grades from report cards on the fridge.

Looks normal right? But what you haven't seen is the ENTIRE fridge. Since before I can remember, we have been collecting magnets. Anywhere and everywhere any part of the family travels to (states, countries, tourist places, etc.), there is a magnet.

Check it out...

We're starting to run out of room haha.

A closer look at some:

It's actually a lot of fun to take the time to look at them all and reminisce the memories attached to the magnets.

What's on your family fridge?

Challenges of Days 4 & 5

Challenge Day 4: Turn on the Charm

Yesterday I was supposed to be really nice to Errol and not nag or be cranky. Unfortunately, I had a really shitty day at work and was very tired so we still ended up bickering :(


Challenge Day 5: Eat Sustainable Fish

While I don't know if they use fish grown in sustainable environments, Errol took me to dinner at Ichiban Sushi next to Las Margaritas. Delicious 12-piece sashimi and 2 rolls! Perfect amount of food for 2 [hungry] people :)

I think I could do this challenge every day if I had the money!

Challenge of the Day: Eat Low-Pesticide Produce

Day 3: Eat Low-Pesticide Produce

How I will do this...

1) Yesterday while I was home, I went to a local produce place that sells really cheap, farmer's market-style fruits and vegetables to make guacamole. Avocados were $0.99 compared to Publix's $1.99, so I stocked up! The tomatoes were also heirloom and beautiful. So I made some for lunch today!

2) Have some organic salad mix from Publix I'll have for dinner.

The only thing is I'll have to eat some Mac 'N Cheese too... but technically that isn't produce :)
