Paperwork-y stuff

I think I'm all set for immunizations, I submitted all my information online and will mail-in hard copies tomorrow.

The only thing I'm iffy on is the PPD. I haven't had one but I have to report to the student health center when I get there anyway for a T-Spot anyway because I was born in the Philippines, so maybe that is okay. I don't want to get a PPD because the last one resulted in a rash covering my forearm and a chest x-ray. So while not 100% sure I'm allergic to it, it isn't an experience I want to repeat. I will call the health center and find out for sure. I don't want something small like that to keep me from being allowed into the program.

Meanwhile, my titers came back positive and I got a second documented dose of MMR. So I don't have to stay up at night worrying about contracting chicken pox, measles, mumps, rubella, or Hep. B. That is a load off my mind ;-)

I accepted my loans back at the beginning of June and everything seems fine there. I did the online master promisary note, etc. But once again part of me worries that I've missed something/screwed something up and I won't be allowed into the program. I know it is stupid and it isn't keeping me up at night or anything, it just means that I go back into my student account periodically and recheck to make sure all my loans say that I've accepted them.

My route Friday/Saturday
Three days until I have the moving truck and drive all over two states before unloading it in Hillsborough. Someone from my class and our second years may all be meeting up for lunch sometime on Saturday so I'm not sure if I can squeeze that in but it would be a good chance to get to meet more people.

I've avoided being stressed out about the move, but it will start to seem more real in the next couple days as things move from the dining room staging area to the living room (ie: by the front door) in preparation of being loaded into a truck and moving away for forever.


  1. Good luck with the move! They're always painful at the time, but nice to have them behind you.

  2. Thanks! Luckily the temperature is going to drop down to the 80's from the 100's so it won't be as painful as it would be otherwise! :)
