From DJ to MD: 1 Down, 4 to Go


Hello, everybody! Remember me?! It’s DJ!!! 😀

In case any of you happened to miss my announcement last year, I started Medical School last August, and have just completed my first term in December. This is why I have been absent from commenting on everyone else’s blogs, replying to comments on mine, why you no longer see me posting any more book reviews/book collecting, and why you only see/have seen an incredible influx in interviews posts on my page.

Now that all paper have been signed, plane tickets bought, and loans taken out, I am ready for the reveal… I am going to medical school! Continue reading
