Monday to Friday

I just took a test online, and now I'm going to take a few minutes to record what my average week is like. I want to come back to this post in July, after I've taken the MCAT (May 27th) and after I've finished applying to medical school (target: mid-June), just so I can look back on times like this and relish the fact that I can relax.

Mondays are definitely my longest days. Tuesdays are a close second, but can be first depending on if orgo lab goes over time, and WRF are equals.

Monday:

12:00pm - change clothes for work and take Naiya out
