Hard to believe but I am officially 25% of a physician. My first year of medical school is officially over and it is amazing how fast this year has gone. This term was another busy one (as you can tell by the inactivity on the blog) and I have come out the other side alive. I had 6 classes this term (2 of which were short ones in the first few weeks): parasitology, community and preventative medicine, physiology, neuroscience, genetics, and immunology. I have passed everything and will be moving onto my second, and last year on the island. After my first year I have a total weighted mean percentage of 90% and I am very happy with how things have gone. I fly out of Grenada tomorrow at 7:50 am (not a minute too soon) and I'll land in Phoenix at 7 pm. My summer is about 6 weeks long as we have to be back on the island for the start of classes on July 1 for a short semester filled with psychology, bio-stats, medical law, health care, etc. Basically it'll be a mixture of topics that can't fill up an entire semesters worth of material. In 24 hours I will be landing and I cannot express how happy I am to see my friends and family!! I have an amazing summer planned ahead with trips planned to Las Vegas, Disneyland, and Tucson for UA baseball. I will also finally be able to rest, catch up on sleep, and eat at all of my American favorites. Hope everybody is doing wonderful; thanks for reading.

So I am back on the island and ready for term 2 !! Since my last post in November, we had finals and I had a wonderful break. Finals went very well and I was very happy and proud of my performance and final grades. It was so nice to return to the states and be back with family and friends for almost a month. I stayed in Arizona for break and we had lots of family visiting. It was so nice to have home cooked meals, television, sports, my favorite restaurants, and all the family and friends right there. Going back for term 2 was bittersweet. It was tough to leave home and all the things I really enjoyed over break but it is nice to be back in the great weather with everybody. I'm excited to get back into the groove of everything and start learning more. This semester I have 6 classes: Physiology, Immunology, Genetics, Parasitology, Community and Preventative Medicine, and Neurophysiology. I might not have too many updates since I've already been here for a semester and most of the new and exciting things have been posted about. I've got classes tomorrow morning so I better get ready.
