You’re gonna fly by and my head is gonna spin, so I would like us to go in on the same page. I would like to be prepared. Please bring me only good news, and please please just work with me!

Scared and Alone

23 Jan

In college, I had good friends that I could count on. A (co-ed) fraternity full of them, in fact! Now that I graduated, I live in a different city, and they’re all so far away. I don’t talk to too many of them anymore, and I don’t really have any friends here. Most people check up on me every once in a while, but it’s usually a text asking how I’m doing, and once I answer, then they feel they’ve satisfied their duty as a friend for a few weeks, and I don’t hear from them for a while. Maybe they just think I’m too busy to talk or that I want to be left alone, but I don’t, and I’ve tried to express that. Maybe I’m being too needy, expecting too much of people that have their own things going on right now. I mean, I probably am, but it’s just how I feel, and it’s hard to change that. I have one friend from college that I do keep in touch with on a regular basis, but she lives 7 hours away, so I can rarely see her. I just feel so lonely here. My family is amazing and they’re great people, but they’re just so stressed that they’re a little absent-minded as of late, and it feels like I’m talking to a wall when I try to talk to them. I’m sad pretty much 90% of the time, mostly because I’m doing this somewhat alone, though not completely. I probably feel more alone than I actually am, but that still hurts. Even texting doesn’t seem like quite enough on the really bad days. I’m the kind of person that…I just want to be in the company of a good friend, and that by itself tends to make me feel better. I’m really just scared and alone. That’s how I feel right now.

First Day of Medical School was Today!!!

2 Jul

OMG, such a long day, but it was great! I was exhausted after not sleeping last night and having to wake up to move my car (parking in midtown Atlanta is frustrating to say the least), but it was fantastic!

I got a laptop, portable multiple drive/DVD burner…thing, backpack, pen, flash drive, and external hard drive. I met my classmates, faculty members, and advisors. Tomorrow, I get my big sib. I’m really excited for that!

I was looking over my class schedule, and I feel behind already! lol it’s SOOO intense. I knew what I was getting myself into, though. I foresee a lot of caffeine in my future, that’s all I have to say about that.

I live like 3 miles away from the school, and it took me 30 minutes to get there and an hour to get back! A combination of traffic and being utterly lost. I’m glad I gave myself that extra time, as it seems I may have to do all the time here in Atlanta. No matter, I love it here. I can walk nearly everywhere I need to go from my apartment. Convenient!!

I can’t believe it’s really happening! I’m living my dream!!!
