I met up with two of my very best friends today for lunch, Sierra and Natalie. It was great. We caught up, and talked for over an hour. I miss them like crazy. After talking about what everyone is doing with their lives, I left lunch with only two thoughts on my mind:
1. What the heck am I doing with my life?
2. This was the kick-in-the-pants-motivation I needed right now.
If you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about here's a clue. Sierra's little sis, who is three years younger then me, has a PhD! My other friend who I've known since 4th grade, graduates medical school this May (we started college college and were even in General Biology at the same time.) I am 26, and still working for that Bachelor's... Wah wah wah. Granted, I took a total of 4 years off, and I have had to work to pay for school by myself, which not a lot of my high school classmates/ friends had to do.
It's tough! For the life of me I don't know how it is accomplished in 4 years, and yet people do it all the time! I was inspired by the success and progress of my friends, and am so determined to finish school with a bang, take the MCAT's next summer, and get my butt to Medical School!
I am disobeying direct orders from Natalie to not post this picture on my blog. Oopsie, it slipped!
Seriously girls thank you so much for the inspiration today! Sierra graduated with I believe a Finance Degree, Aced the LSAT's and is now kicking butt as a Super-mom/wife. And Natalie has an Accounting Degree and is doing her thing in the Fashion industry!
