Eating my mom’s tempura has been on my mind for weeks! The endless line of projects, exams, presentations, and any other killer assignments the professors decided to throw at us somehow seemed totally worth it because it meant that we were getting that much closer to going home. I’m definitely thankful for Thanksgiving!

Not too much went on at school this week except for the Loma Linda School of Medicine interviews. Half the school was dressed in suits and business attire for the few days that Dr. Nyiradi, a recruiter for everybody’s dream school, was here on campus. I guess everyone decided to put a little more effort into their appearance this week, since usually sweats are worn to class. After two nights of sleep traded in for two full nights of studying to get that A in o-chem, comfort trumps over fashion.

This quarter went by so quickly, I feel like I missed out on a lot of things. With senate meetings, running my club, working two jobs, and taking seventeen units, I’ve definitely kept busy, to say the least. Next quarter won’t be much better time-wise, but my friends and I have made compromises in order to squeeze in some fun between days of agony. We’ll definitely be going to all the basketball games. It’s at the games that PUC displays the greatest school spirit! Packed bleachers, loud crowds, and good sports—what more could we ask for?

I guess we could ask for tempura.
