So this is kind of a more serious subject.
I know a lot of you have struggled with the journey of getting to Physician Assistant school, and I wish I could tell you that once you get in, everything is magic and sunshine. And truthfully, being there was the most amazing feeling ever and it did feel like every dream I ever had was within my grasp.
But it was still hard. And I still struggled. Classes are intense, we’re in school all day and then go home and study, people sometimes aren’t the most supportive, and it cumulates with feeling like we’re facing this huge, impossible challenge (or at least I did). One day I cried because I spilt water on my backpack and it didn’t totally dry prior to going to school the next day. Looking back it’s completely silly and I can laugh at my being so distraught at simple water, but in the moment it was a big deal.
That’s what I want you guys to realize: is that even though something can seem like a big deal in the moment, and like something you’re not going to be able to overcome, that’s not reality. Our lives are filled with so much promise and hope and for every obstacle we overcome, we turn in to such better humans.
