So today I got an email confirming my acceptance into a summer research program at Harvard Med for the summer. This is definitely a big step for me in pursuing my career goals and it’s really means a lot because I’ve always had high hopes since middle school to what I would become.
I know a lot of people scroll by and like things on Facebook, but I won’t lie in saying that people realizing and noticing my accomplishment isn’t a confidence booster and really motivating. Even with all the likes and other comments nothing beats the simple comment a good friend of mine made.
“I’m really proud of you.”
She probably doesn’t know it herself, but it’s good to know a good friend like that is out there watching you succeed and cares about your happiness. I always smile and feel at ease when I see any post, tweet, or status about her doing well or just being happy. I wish I could see her more often, especially since we don’t even live far away, but we both have crazy schedules. Though I’ll say this, if by some fate we end up in the same town, area, or whatever when we’re older I hope we can make time to just catch up, enjoy each other’s company and just be silly like we were 9th graders all over again. I’ll never forget the first time I met you and hope that the last time we saw each other wasn’t the last time. Thanks My, you are truly one of the best people that have ever walked into my life and I hope you never forget that. Thanks for remembering my dreams just as I remember yours.
