Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

"There are ... things ... that if I’d let be, they’d eat away at me and destroy me in the end...there are things you can’t back down on, things you gotta take a stand on. But it’s up to you to decide what them things are. You have to demand respect in this world, ain’t nobody just gonna hand it to you. How you carry yourself, what you stand for-that’s how you gain respect. But, little one, ain’t nobody’s respect worth more than your own."

Hi! Linked here from sdn; might I offer a suggestion as you go through the med process. Dont allow your happiness to be attached to how your perform in school. Separate your personal life from the school work and med application stuff. Im not saying you are or are not, but it's good to be reminded of that from time to time.

Thanks for the advice. I have a tendency to confuse the two, and it's awesome to see that verbalized. Now that school's over I'm gonna try to focus on me and just relax.
