It's been an up and down week. I've been plugging along thinking happy thoughts and hoping everything works out for the best.
Bad: my current college and I are fighting. They want to take away all my money, and I've made up fun new four-letter words in my pursuit to thwart them. It's difficult because I'm only a year away from medical school and if I lose my Financial Aid now there is no way I can afford to finish my Undergrad on my own. Keep your fingers crossed that my entire future isn't smeared and that the appeal goes through.
Good: My old college sent me my degrees. They are both hanging on my wall next to my desk. I feel crazy proud like I'm going to pop every time I looked at them. They (in my mind only, but still) say: "this certifies that Jamie worked her fingers to knobby bloody nubs for this college and is entitled to hugs and cookies (and various other favors, if you're a cowboy and so inclined)"
I'm very excited to have proof that all the work I did there (and it was a ton) was legit, and I really didn't just make it up so people would think I was busy and that's why I didn't return their phone calls or E-mails.
Bad: I've been sick three times this last week, even after only eating air and drinking water all day. I'm fighting it, but it looks more and more like surgery may actually have to be an option. Is it sad that I want to be a doctor but am scared crapless of them?
Good: I have 17 pounds left until I'm under 300 pounds. I've been doing happy dances all day long. It's totally dorky, but I'm really proud of myself.
I hope all of you are having a better week, and that you have an amazing weekend that's quickly approaching!
