Current mood:happyI meet up with a blind classmate of mine, outside of class, multiple times a week to help him with our coursework. The feeling I get when I help someone is very rewarding. We're all in this together, lend a hand to someone.
Current mood:accomplishedLooking for a new career opportunity is always an adventure. Sailing into uncharted waters, full of intrigue. Well, all my energy put into the cause the past 3 months paid off last week. I accepted the perfect position and started last Thursday. Thus, I start on a new journey. Getting in may even seem like the easy part in the long view, for now, my goal is to climb. For all of those who are looking for a new career trajectory, or are pondering beginning the search: be persistent and use your networking skills. Remember, even the most unlikely situation can present an opportunity.
Michael, I looked up to you tons when I was little. You were such a great big brother to me. I truly cherish those memories I have. You throwing me across the pool. The time at the airport hangar when you had that souped-up, yellow, El Camino you took me racing around the tarmac, sitting shotgun. Those holidays when we were all together. Last March when all the guys took pictures together outside Mom and Dad's house with the azaleas blooming white. Dr. Pepper. Tortilla Scramblers. Last Christmas, gosh, I can't even wrap my brain around the notion of that being our last time together on Earth. I am glad we had it. Thank you for calling me of those times. I love you so much. I miss you. You are in my heart.
We are all on loan.
Current mood:thankfulThe driver was extremely nice to A) pull over after hitting someone like that, I didnt really expect it. B) Taking me to the ER and waiting until I was cleaned up/seen C) He brought me Beef Jerky, water, and Advil, and a movie to watch later that night, while we were waiting to see the Staff. He had a lot of integrity. I got ahold of Barbie and she came right down, I told her that it was nothing serious and to drive safe. The driver waited until she got there and took off. Barbie was upset that he kept saying "Gosh I thought I killed him" and other things of that nature. Hours of waiting later, I didn't mind because I had calmed down and considerably was feeling better than most of the other paitents. I saw the Liz the Nurse and the Doctor. He did all the fracture point sensitivity tests and tested my range of motion with my leg, it was great. The driver had come back to see how I was doing just as I was being released. He told us that he canceled a class he was due to teach at (he was on the way when he hit me) and went and talked to his therapist. Everything was fine, Rx for some IBprofen, Barbie drove me home and got me a pizza. What an evening. That was pretty much the story. I was very lucky.
