School is almost over, and it's a bit scary. Freshmen year went by incredibly fast. I hope that the rest of college is slower. My last day of classes is monday and my last exam is on the 6th, so I'll be home for the summer pretty soon.
I switched my major recently from bme to chemistry, and I plan on going to dentistry school and becoming an oral surgeon. Huge change, right? It took me a lot of thinking and planning an questioning myself be come to the conclusion that I wanted to go to dentistry school. A big factor in that was not my ability, but rather in the question, "Is it going to help people and/or better society?". Becoming a biomedical engineer has obvious and palpable benefits that it can lend society, but does oral surgery? Well, of course people need surgery in emergencies and need their wisdom teeth taken out and all that jazz, but can't other people do that? In regards to that question, other people, better suited for research, can also become bmes. I feel justified in my new path.
While discussing my choice with a couple people, one of them being a cross country wanderer computer whiz, the consensus is that I would make a pretty good oral surgeon. I agree.
Tangentlol. Anyways, schools almost out and I'm getting decent grades. I can't wait to see all my friends when they all get home!
