Jesus. I’m turning 27 tomorrow. For some reason, I feel like I wanted people to know this year. Last year, I changed my Facebook so NO one knew that it was my b-day. I got 3-4 notifications that it was my bday and it made me realize how much we rely on technology to remind people who we love of these important dates. But I do the same thing too. And, I realized that maybe I want to feel special, dammit! I met a boy. I like him a lot. He’s republican and hates that I curse every 3 seconds, but I think he likes me too. I think the more I age, the more I realize that I do want someone to share my life with. I don’t want to be a grumpy dope shackled in my apartment with my awesome future cat. I want someone I can share amazing times with. Haven’t been kayaking? Who would be a better person to do it with? Yes. I just started Surgery and I’m taking Step 2 Ck and Cs in 3 months - but once that is over, my life is going to get A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. 59 days left in Surgery and tomorrow afternoon, I get to assist in removing one of the most amazing pathologies I’ve studied, The Porcelain Gallbladder (not just a pretty phrase — but a hefty prognosis - could mean Cholangiocarcinoma). Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once a while, you can miss it.
