Staying positive and looking towards the future... aka my 3x4 foot calendar detailing my every move this semester. I’ve taken a good month and a half off from social media this semester, to rejuvenate and reevaluate my path towards plastics.
I’m not even half way there and I can already say:
I’ve lost friends I thought would be lifers, made friends I never thought I’d have an commonality with,
Cried so hard because I felt like a failure,
Watched and listened to my friends or coworkers tell me about how “shitfaced,” they got last night or “that really cool thing,” they bought the other day, while I’m rockin 2014 sneakers, eating on an 18 year olds budget with no social life, medical bills permeating out of my pores.... don’t get me wrong, I have my every 5-6 week dose of fun... but I have a weekly sometimes daily mental arguments with myself if this is worth it or not...
Is medical school the right path?
Will I be able to have a family?
Am I smart enough to get enough scholarships and work as much as I can without failing school to pay for it? .
The point of this rant is, it doesn’t matter what you’re doing. It’s doesn’t matter what the goal may be. If it seems impossible and you BELIEVE it’s impossible -it will be. But if you BELIEVE that you can give the biggest middle finger to all that self-doubt or the haters, then you’re already halfway to success.
Perseverance and dedication... and also being so got dang stubborn to settle for nothing less is why I’m smiling 🤙🏽
