My Top 3 Tips for Packing to Move

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

The past few days have been a whirlwind of packing and I still have more to pack. I didn't realize how much "stuff" I had until I started packing and it is a bit overwhelming. My packing schedule got thrown off today because of an incident involving a subpoena (note to self: never sign anything when people come to your door and ask for signatures). Anyway...moving on...I'm not an expert on packing to move since this is my first time, but I figured I would share with you my top 3 packing tips that helped me out.


1. Pack items according to room.  Pack kitchen items with kitchen items, bathroom items with bathroom items, etc. You may be tempted to just throw items into boxes randomly, but that will make it more difficult when it comes time to unpack.

2. Label boxes.  This tip goes along with the first one. Label each box with the items inside and the room they belong in.

3. Pack a suitcase with necessities.  Pack a suitcase with some clothing, toothpaste, toothbrush, and other items that you use daily. If you get tired when you are unpacking and you haven't unpacked everything yet, you will have everything you need right in the suitcase.

I hope these tips help you out if you are moving for school or any other reason!

Do you have any packing or moving tips that you swear by?


Welcome to The P.A. Pursuit!

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Hello! My name is Chelsea, and I am going to be starting a physician assistant program in less than a month. I created this blog, so that I could share my experience as a P.A. student to help those who are interested in becoming a P.A. I will be including posts on other topics as well, such as fashion, beauty, gluten-free cooking, etc. I share a fashion, lifestyle, and beauty YouTube channel (DanniAndChels) with my twin sister, but she is going to take over our channel while I'm in school since I most likely won't have time to make videos. I figured posting on a blog would be more manageable for me.

I'll start off by giving you a little background on my education. I attended a community college for two years before transferring to a four-year college. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences. I originally planned on applying to medical school, but I did not do well on the MCAT. After wasting a lot of money on preparation for the MCAT and medical school application fees, I took some time to really think about whether or not it was worth it for me to try taking the MCAT again. I decided that it was not worth it. I had shadowed a lot of physician assistants in college, and I realized that I could do exactly what I wanted to do as a P.A. I also liked the fact that I wouldn't be in school forever since P.A. programs are usually only around two years long. Another plus of going to P.A. school instead of medical school is that it is less expensive, which is always nice!
