“In New York, they say you’re always looking for a job, a boyfriend, or an apartment. So, let’s say you have two out of three, and they’re fabulous. Why do we let the one thing we don’t have affect how we feel about all the things we do have?”
Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City.
And for the record, I’m lucky and blessed enough to have all three.

I’ve never had the word ‘President’ next to my name before today.
Guess there’s a first time for everything.
Despite the stress of 5 midterms and juggling internship interviews/decisions, it’s so uplifting to learn that your peers really do hold confidence in your leadership abilities and skills. Turns out my own insecurities about myself didn’t even come up in their discussion for appointing me as Prez of my grad program’s healthcare network.
Feeling pretty good. Part of me is feeling the “wtf?! i have to manage an organization and supervise and mentor people who are years older than me?!” and “omg fuck praying i don’t run this group into the ground” stress, but for now I’m just going to feel happy and not let my stupid insecurities rain on my parade.

So I suddenly went from an empty inbox with no internship prospects, to:
-3 interviews in 1 week, two of which are major “gets” and involve quantitative case interviews with only 4 days’ notice—GREAT.
-and papers and takehome midterms and studying for in-class midterms. fucking great.
stress is through the ROOF. so much is riding on these interviews this week but i’m trying not to psych myself out.
working hard to make sure i’m prepared, but sending hopes and prayers and thoughts to the PTB! need all the good luck and mojo i can get this week.

Today has been one of the first days in a long time where I feel hopeful, happy and excited for the near future, instead of hopeless, dejected and stressed.
Knocking on wood and praying that I rock this dream internship interview next week! :) Here’s to preparing & working hard to achieve success.

News flash: grad school is just like high school
When the annoying student leadership kids in high school are the same ones who run for student government in grad school…ugh
I’ve always hated student government elections. I think that it’s really annoying for people to spew out false claims that “they’ll represent the student voice!” and “foster a community of student spirit!”. It’s all bullshit. It’s so fake and disingenuous, especially because those people are usually very cliquey and couldn’t give less of a shit about people outside their friend circle.
This literally bugs me to no end.
