Job Interview

I went to a job interview yesterday at Dodger’s Stadium for an Usher job. I had gone on Saturday to their job fair and got called for a second interview. I was told that out of the 7,000 people they interviewed on Saturday/Sunday, only 300 were chosen for the second interview. Out of those 300 they are interviewing, only 30 are going to be chosen. Obviously I have the odds stacked up against me getting the position, but hopefully I get it so that I can work for a full month before leaving for Mexico (I really need the money hehehe).

I’ve been looking into what medical schools to apply to and so far I’ve chosen two. I am really liking the idea of UC Davis Medical School, especially since it’s in Sacramento. I’ve never been to Sacramento and it’s close enough to family members so I won’t feel lonely. I keep looking at their program and keep getting drawn to it. Maybe if I’m lucky, I’ll get in. The second choice I’ve been looking at is UAG Medical School. Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara is located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. I wouldn’t mind getting into that med school either because I have family in the next state over that I could probably visit. I like that in your first year you are really put out there to practice medicine and it would be a great opportunity to study Spanish. Yes, I speak Spanish and can understand/read it but I feel like I couldn’t lose with learning more Spanish, especially if I want to deal with patients in the future. Sometimes I think it would be a great asset as a medical examiner because I would be able to speak with the families of the deceased (kind of like Dr. G does on tv, but in Spanish). I’m still looking for more but haven’t really been convinced by other programs. I’m not sure if I want to go really far from family again, like I did for college. Yes, it was fun, but sometimes I just wished I could go home on the weekends like the other kids.
I’m also intrigued by the American University of the Caribbean (a former high school teacher of mine’s alma mater) but I still have to look into it more.

There’s just too many decisions to make in the next coming year but I hope to start medical school sometime soon. I wanna be a doctor dammit! hahaha.
