Big Friday

Prov. 27:1
Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

It is incredible how true that Proverb has become for me. Just this past Friday, without planning, I experienced two life changing events. First, I was commissioned in the U.S. Navy. Second I was “commissioned” into medical school. What a fitting end to such a hectic week of orientation. When I get a chance I’ll write more about it, but for now pictures will have to suffice. Oh, I also completed my first dissection today. It was really neat actually seeing it for real and not just in a book.

By the way, for those of you who can, make a note to ask my mom what I forgot to do before I moved into my apartment. I’ll be posting more about that this weekend.

New Look

Hey everyone! With a new place comes a new look. I hope everyone likes the new look, it is still a work in progress like my apartment but it is coming together. I’m sure you’ll be visiting more for the content then the links (the things that are mainly broken). I have so much to tell, it has been an incredible week. Stay tuned for more.

About Me . . .

Ok, so I guess I should write a little about me. Hum, so where should Ipopup start?

I guess the best place to start is my faith. I became a follower of Jesus Christ at the age of 5 and was baptized soon afterwards. If you want to know why I chose to follow Christ, take this test, follow these steps and you’ll come to the same conclusion. Since then, I’ve been learning more each day what it means to follow Christ and have been growing in the faith, hope and love of my Lord.

Everything else about me is superfluous. I’m currently a medical student (pic) at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine supported by the U.S. Navy Health Profession Scholarship Program which is a fancy way of saying that I’m in the U.S. Navy (pic) and they are paying for my medical school.

Nothing much else except a lot of people don’t believe that I sleep in a hammock. Oh, almost forgot that the building in the background of my site is the “GEB” (General Education Building at UT) and is where I spend most of my day while in class.
