Okay... Changed

 Mail is fun, isn't it?  Magazines letting one know the latest hotspots in the world and savings accumulated "if you order now" and dreams to put away for another year.  The junk mail we all get that I never read from the local newspaper coupons to other senseless drivel.

As I mashed through my stack of misbegotten mail there was a plain white envelope that I almost tossed.  Thankfully, I did not.

I edited out my earlier vent because... I'm so over what happened.  IF something great can come of it, aka, I can get some sort of refund on my sustained losses, awesome!  IF not, well, really?  I'm not out anything more than I already was and honestly, after calming back down, I realized I am just so over it all... and don't want to continue to nash my teeth on the drama.

Like really.  Anyone wanna echo my "ICK!"

So, I went to work, thought about where I'm at in ochem (not saying but the light is not currently a train), where I'm at in biology (light has never been a train), and realized:

One month from now, my son will be 20
One month from now, it will be 2012
One month from now, I will be looking at spring semester, 2012
Two months from now, I will be in physiology, biochem, and another biology class (evolution)
Three months from now, I will be on spring break somewhere warm, sunny, and getting an awesome tan
Four months from now, I will be hitting up my last midterms
Five months from now, I will be heading to Ecuador (rock on!)
Six months from now, I will be MCATing


Seven months from now, I will be sending out applications.

Not sure the mail today really matters when the above 9 sentences do.

Make it an awesome weekend (I'll be, ahem, studying!)

I personally had no problem with your earlier post, as we all need to vent sometimes. But I'm glad that you can see the good things too.

Enjoy your study weekend. If it's any consolation, I have to be at school both days at 8 am for ICU training. Bah humbug.

Thanks, Kay and SD

Today, was just one of those days where I could feel like I was sinking into an abyss of self-promoted misery. It's not who I am so after thinking about the drivel (some things beyond just the letter), I re-wrote the post. It still reflects the story, and it reflects my general outlook on life.

Progress, not regret.

Hi Adoc2b,

I had the chance to read your previous post. It was actually revealing about how banks have been operating these last few years. I have been following your blog for the last three years. I am so happy for you these days. You sound very optimistic. Yay for being able to live through the ups and downs of life!

P.S.: I really like the new profile picture
