New Year Update!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Like an extremely long time… Oh well I’m back to it now!

I am now in the middle of my 4th year at STLCOP. How is that even possible. It seems like just yesterday I was making posts about my first semester. Man has time just flown by. It will be 2015 this week and I graduate in 2017. That’s way too close for comfort!

You may be new to this blog and that is perfectly fine. I’ll give you an update on who I am. I’m a 4th year at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy. I have had some crazy times there and I am well on my way to becoming a pharmacist. I have had a remarkable time at college and couldn’t have asked it to be any different. I have taken classes ranging from Biology to Cultural Heritage to Pharmacology to Therapeutics to Professional Communications and so many more. There really is never a dull moment at STLCOP. Classes here will keep you on your toes. I have also taken on roles such as my class’s president, Student Pharmacy Assocation member, Washington University visiting lab assistant, Barnes Jewish West County Hospital pharmacy intern, The Rehab Institute of St. Louis pharmacy intern, Student Alumni Association president elect, a dean’s office assistant, a brother of Lambda Chi Alpha, a member of the student pharmacy leadership fraternity Phi Lambda Sigma,and so many more. Each past and present challenge has been daunting, but rewarding. There are many roles that I take that wouldn’t fit on a CV, but are just as rewarding such as a boyfriend, a mentor, a peer, a son, etc.. They have helped shape me into what I am today.

I am from a small town that routinely graduates a little over thirty students yearly. Coming to STLCOP I had no idea what it took to be successful. I was horrified. Entering a professional program at eighteen is challenging in itself, but I hadn’t even heard of an AP class and some students had come from all around the world from super prestigious high schools. I thought there was no way I would make it. I asked a multitude of questions on what it took to be successful and received just as many answers. Everyone who I asked wanted me to succeed and would reassure me that I could be successful. I now know what it takes to be a successful pharmacy student and I am doing the same process into what it takes to be a successful pharmacist.

Anyone is free to ask me a question about anything, whether it be pharmacy, life, STLCOP, football, you name it by messaging my facebook account at

I will be hopefully (depends on the workload for the week) having weekly posts about STLCOP, college life, and just thoughts in general.

Have a wonderful holiday!
