I received notification today that I won a Fellows Award for $3000 to take on an unpaid internship at Children’s Hospital in Boston from my school! I busted my butt filling out the application and am soooo happy that I got it.  About 100 people applied for 20 spots; not terrible odds but they definitely make me feel special that I got one 🙂 This means that I don’t have to work my usual summer job full time (ick) and if I want a little extra cash flow I can pick up one day there.

In running news, I feel YIPPEE too.  My pace for my runs aren’t getting faster but my legs aren’t feeling as trashed as they were at the beginning of the week.  Maybe the taper is actually doing something? For instance, this morning I was able to let my mind wander rather than have it be: “jeez my legs are tired” or “and just WHY am I doing this?” haha. Mind you, my pace was still very slow for me but it was MP + 75 seconds which, and correct me if I’m wrong, is where they should be.  I’m just an overachiever who wants to run all my runs fast and hard.

Orgo related: I took the second exam of the current material today (we get 2 attempts at every test and the better score is the one that counts, sweet deal) and the exam was exactly the same as the last one format wise.  And there still was a section that I didn’t get! Everything else was fine but man, my prof better not put that stuff on the final. And for the fellow Orgo nerds out there, the section was “Is this molecule an aromatic?” UGH

Alright, going to wrap this up.  The boys of summer are playing tonight; home opener against the Yankees (boo!).  Fitting because the weather *is* summer-like.  Today was a high of 70*, tmrw will be ~85* and Sunday will be ~82*.  Knowing New England though, next week we’ll get snow. HA, but hopefully not 🙂


  1. Congrats on the internship!
