Today was Accepted Students’ Day at my new school. It was set to start at 9:30am and, as always, I was early.
I was nervous, almost as nervous as the day of my interview. So I sat there with a cup of coffee and a croissant, headphones on, waiting, trying to calm down. I cried a bit, have to admit it.
It’s been such a long journey. It’s been six years of uncertainty, and dreaming, and work. Hard work. From hating on physics and having to take a semester long break because of my health, to falling in love again with anatomy. All brought me to this day. Couldn’t help but to think of Disney’s Tangled (shut up!). When Rapunzel wonders what will she do after she realizes her dream, how can she move on after that? I felt so incredibly lucky, so blessed to know exactly how this feels. There I was, about to “start” my dream, and I just couldn’t quite believe it. I thought of all the people I wanted to be there with me. People I wanted to thank and make proud. People who agreed to be far far far away from me just so I could pursue this. Weddings, birthdays, graduations, Christmases, Easters, births missed. Little people I haven’t met yet and probably think I live inside an iPad.
I don’t really have a conclusion for this post; it doesn’t matter anyways. I just wanted a place to register how this day felt, after all I’ve waited a long time for it.
I’m a happy camper.
Lionesses are awesome. Single mom Cheetahs should rule the universe.
Hyenas are bitches!
I was making poached-scrambled eggs and it was a success.
I really want the dress that Angela (Michaela Conlin) was wearing on the latest episode of Bones, The Warrior in the Wuss.
Does anybody have any idea of where to find this?! Also, searching for the tag “bones” on Tumblr can be quite disturbing; and I am a bone enthusiast. Just saying…
“Next morning, Robb tours the grisly aftermath. One of his bannerman, Lord Bolton, is eager to torture the prisoners. Robb is too noble, and practical, for that. The young Stark meets a comely field medic diagnosing a soldier’s wound. The kid’s foot needs to come off. And by “come off” we mean gradually sawed through with a serrated blade right there on the field without anesthetic and a nasty piece of cloth stuffed in his mouth. I’ve seen this in so many movies, it’s a cliche, yet it always gets me squirming in discomfort.We see Robb checking out Nurse Jigsaw out while she dourly cuts away. What’s the opposite of “meet-cute”? This.”
