I have missed you.
Stay tuned. :D
totally burning in hell but y’know what? this shit is funny.
What a gal wouldn’t do for a nice cup of coffee :)
Day 07: Your Zodiac sign and if you think it fits your personality.
I’m an aquarius and I do believe that it suits me perfectly. While I don’t necessarily fancy or humor zodiac as a whole, what it portrays someone who was born under that sign, is quite accurate. I’m independent to a fault, adore water, am tempermental, opinionated and very type-a.
Day 08: A moment where you felt the most satisifed with your life.
For now, it’s after I successfully accomplish an exam and feel good about it, only to then receive the grade and have proof that I’ve mastered the subject/concept. I’m sure there will be plenty of time where I have great satisfaction coming up. I try to remain humble though, but one can’t help feel happy with themselves when you get a great grade in grad classes.
Day 09: How you hope your future will be like.
Successful, drama-free, happy. Perhaps incredibly busy, fulfilling, with lots of traveling and many lives saved. In the home I’ve always wanted, with the cars in the garage indicative of a successful person, and several dogs. I’d like to continue my deep bond and relationship with my niece and nephew and hope perhaps there will be more in the future.
Day 10: Discuss your first love and first kiss.
They happen to have been with the same person. It also happens to be with someone thats a complete asshole. However, in the moment, it was exactly what I wanted, so for that, I guess it is what it is.
Day 11: Put your iPod on shuffle and write 10 songs that pop up.
“Lets Get Drunk And Fight”
“Share The Love”
“Bend In The Road”
“Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked”
“Rain Is A Good Thing”
“Won’t Back Down”
“You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid”

30. I genuinely love life.
I’ve been through a lot in my 25-years of life. My family has been both a blessing and a curse. In my mid teens I had a bad bout with depression and had very real suicidal thoughts due to the stress of my parents. One is a paranoid schizophrenic who went crazy on my mom and I, and my mom was physically ill with a slew of health problems. Offing it seemed the best choice.
Later in my college years, the stress of being a medical school bound person really has it’s pressure. I battle with the stressors of it still, since I’m not quite done. I put more pressure on myself than anyone else. I have never attempted suicide, but often it helps to fancy the idea, to get me through battles. Perhaps it’s strange, but there you go.
Being a raised orthodox Catholic, this has been my personal pilot light. Many of my decisions fall right back to my beliefs. Having been raised with the Catholic teachings, as I got older, I explored my religion and became more devoted. I attend weekly masses, partake in the sacraments and do my best to live this life for now. I believe we are here to live out God’s plan to bring peace, love one another, and ready ourselves for eternity in His presence. I adore my Heavenly Father and do not pass judgment on those who disagree. I don’t preach, I am internally faithful; I do not feel it is my place to hound after those who do not share my beliefs.
Without my religion and beliefs I’d be an entirely different person. I thank God that I have my faith. It’s made me who I am today, and allows me to realize for what we go through today is only a fraction in time, compared to what paradise could be before me if I only stay devote and pure hearted.
I’ve never been around those that have heavily depended on drugs and alcohol, so I have no preconceived notion, nor is there a stigma associated with either. That being said, I do know of people, friends past and present, that have had an addiction problems before I met them. Both can equally tear a person’s life apart. It’s tragic, yet I think a big part of it is whether or not someone has an addictive personality.
I understand the necessity of narcotics being in the medical field, however the recreational drugs are just ridiculous. The genie unfortunately is out of the bottle and there’s not a lot that can stop a person who demands their drugs. They’re illegal already… for a reason, too.
I think the drinking age is smart, but I wouldn’t mind seeing the age going up to 25. I think the ages for restrictions should be pushed back. Probably an isolated opinion, but whatever, it’s mine.
I myself do drink, socially and rather rarely. I don’t like the intoxicated feeling, nor do I feel it should be used as a crutch or a pacifier. Therefore, I don’t do much. But since I have, I can’t be hypocritical and say oh no, don’t do it and so forth. Drugs are bad, just as booze is.
I’m just a lucky one who doesn’t have an addictive personality or instability that leads me down a slippery slope to either one of these vices.
10-years from now, I’ll have been a physician for nearly half that. Thankfully I’ll be done with fellowships and residency and perhaps relocated to one of the top 6 picks I’m actually deciding on now in the preparatory work.
My nieces and nephews will be in their youth and I hope to keep the close bonds we’ve already developed. I plan for all of them, one by one as they graduate highschool, the ability to pick anywhere in the world they want to visit and then go with them. My goddaughter will be the first one and I have a sneaking suspicion if I can remain so assiduous, she’ll likely want to go to Latin America. ..just sayin’.
10-years from now, depending on who’s still around, will greatly depend on if I’m in Minnesota, Washington or Alaska. My hope is on Minnesota, however, I’ll have lived in Seattle by then. In 10-years I’ll have also hit every single state in our country, Hawaii and Alaska included. A lot by car, a lot by air, a lot alone but a good share with friends.
I’ll have seen my best friends married and divorced (unfortunately) by then, buried my beloved dog; I’ll be paying off medical school debts, and hopefully changing the lives of people one day at a time, thanks to my job.
..if single, discuss how single life is.
Singlehood has been pretty amazing for me. I’ve had relationships, all duds. They opened my eyes to what I’ve known all along: I’m best when I’m unattached. I’ve begun traveling the world. My money is my own, decisions are made without having to seek permission, I can oogle all I want, make out with whoever I wish and not have to worry.
Being single for me assures me much more than should I be with a guy. When I’ve had boyfriends, they’re jealous of my free spirit, adventurous, thrill-seeking side and try to reel that in and tame it. I do what I want, if I am interested, I’ll learn it/do it/try it. I’m never content, and I don’t mind going at things alone should no one take interest or want to learn/go with me.
That fact alone has lead me to being a motorcycle owner who has done many road trips throughout national parks. It’s being single that allows for the 4-week road trip to Alaska and back, or the trips to Portugal and Spain. I love being single. I much prefer it to being in a steady relationship. I don’t think this aspect of me shall ever change. <3
