I'm in school. Again. When I graduated from high school, I went to college and got a bachelor's degree in nursing. And then I was a nurse. Which was great. But I wanted something different. So I left nursing, and I went back to school to finish my medical school requirements. And I can say with complete honesty that I had no idea when I started what it was going to be like. I can also say that it was one of the best decisions I've ever made - it isn't always the most fun, but I am so happy I did it.
And now I remember why.
After all of your wonderful well wishes for my interview, for which I couldn't have been more thankful, I'm in. A Master of Arts in Bioethics, and a guaranteed seat in their medical class the following year. And as shocking as it may seem, that has rendered me completely speechless. Speechless, and thrilled in a way that no words can describe.
So how does one celebrate, when they've managed to make their dreams come true? Well, I'll be studying for my biochemistry final.
See, I told you it wasn't always very fun.
