I can’t believe it’s the last day of 2013, but I have to admit that this was an amazing year for me! It was definitely a busy one, and a lot of my time was spent studying, working, shadowing, volunteering, and trying to find the time to be a good parent. I also had to deal with medical school applications, MCAT re-takes, and everything else in-between.
Fortunately, I believe that you should play just as hard as you work, and 2013 definitely allowed for some new adventures. I took a hike in a rainforest and learned how to surf in Puerto Rico, went zip-lining for the first time ever in the Dominican Republic, enjoyed the many different tastes of New Orleans, and I learned so much more about myself in the midst of it all.
I feel so extremely blessed and I am happy to say that 2013 was a good year for me. I now have a graduate degree, some clarity in my future path, I remain in good health, my child is happy, and I even have an acceptance to medical school!!!!
I will not be going out tonight to celebrate because I like to close out the year with solo prayer and reflection. To those of you who will be celebrating, I pray you have a good time but stay safe in the process. I also hope that the year was just as good for you all as it was for me, and I know 2014 will be just as awesome (if not better). The best is yet to come, and I look forward to the ride. See you next year!
