Well I have two more weeks of school that's what! grrrrrrr. But I'm ok with that. Two extra weeks of school in exchange for two years of school paid for... I think I can deal.
I must confess, I only wanted to cry once... it was weird too. When we were walking in it KIND of hit me and I realized that even though I'm not as close to all of these people, they are still my people. These are the people that represent my class. Good news is that in the end (at least I think) we will not be responsible for each other... Pretty much other than that I am not too sad. I'm ready to move on. Granted, it still hasn't hit me but I don't think it really will for a while. The speakers were ok. The first and last were the best. The first one talked about the difference between average and extraordinary and how the difference between average and failure is the same as the difference between average and extraordinary. It was great. It made me really excited to try for med school. I cannot wait for the day when I graduate med school... that will be an emotional one for sure. Sure, I have put blood sweat and tears into getting thus far but I know that that was just the training session. What's about to hit me is nothing compared to what I've experienced! The good news is that I am super excited for it. You know how when you watch movies or watch older siblings or older friends and first you think that they are so old and cool and mature and next you think that you will never be old and cool and mature like them and you wish your life away. Well today, I am that person who is "old, cool and mature." I gotta tell ya, I definitely don't feel old, cool, and mature. I feel like I've always felt, still young. But I need to enjoy this time. This is my time to learn how to be the best I can be. As President Monson says, the days of preparation are over. My training is over, it's almost time to be who I'm going to be. I just hope that I will be acceptable to society but mostly the Lord. And on that note:
I would like to thank everybody for all the support that they give/have given me. I know I say thanks a lot but honestly, you don't understand how much even just a smile helps. I appreciate everything and anything that anyone has ever done for me. I know that I have so much to do and so much more to go, but I couldn't have gotten this far without a) my parents, b) my siblings- seriously I wouldn't be anyone without the laughter I have had from them, the fights, the tender moments, the shared testimonies. One time I remember Alex coming up to my bedroom and telling me to read the Book of Mormon. Being the smart alec I was, I went and read the actual Book - of- Mormon. Don't worry I went back and started at the beginning... Thanks you guys... I have enjoyed EVERY minute. c) my friends- since we have moved a few times in my life, my friends have moved in and out however, I consider so many people my friends that in reality, the free world has helped me be who I am.
Senior Year has been one of much reflection. I don't really know why but this year I have reflected a lot on the things that I have done and the things that other people have done for me and I can't express enough how grateful I am. I can't do it justice... so...
