I’m Back…Hopefully.

I let myself down.  I haven’t posted to this blog in months and months and months.  A few days after I wrote my last post, I wrote another one but it ended up being very long and I didn’t know how to end it.  And that was that.  I’ve thought about this blog many times since, but I didn’t write a single word.

I promised myself that I would work towards outrageous goals and if I wasn’t successful by the time medical school started, I would simply go to school and forget about this art nonsense.

Outrageous goals fell to the wayside.  I went to work every day, came home and watched movies, listened to albums, read books, went to sleep and didn’t do much art.  I reached for no outrageous goals.  I didn’t write.  I just wasted time.  I’m disappointed.

I did come out of my shell a bit and perhaps I’ll write about it soon, but let’s see if I even finish this first.

A few days ago, I received an email from my future medical school.  They set up some google forum where all the students can write to each other and begin to get to know each other.  Pretty great.  The administrator suggested we all write little introductions for ourselves.

I’m pretty sure no one loves summing themselves up in 2-3 short paragraphs and I am no exception.  I thought, “Eh, I’ll just send them a link to jamesistrying.com,” but it would seem pretty lazy to send them to a website that I haven’t updated in 6 months.

So this one is for my future classmates and I’m going to try to get the regular posts going for my 7-or-so loyal readers.  I have certainly missed telling stories.

One thought on “I’m Back…Hopefully.

  1. James, my name is Amelia. I am applying to NCNM and I found your blog while franticly trying to finish my application in time for the scholarship deadline. I can’t tell if I am procrastinating because I am afraid to move across the country (I am in Indiana at the time, surviving the snow), or if I just truly am scared to be one step closer to my life long dream-Dr. Wallace. Either way…. Thank you. Thank you for your personal struggle, amazing triumphs, and your ability to document. I loved seeing that someone else was thinking of writing about their experience. If you have time to chime in and give some advice to a scared little girl, I’d gladly take it.

    Peace to you!
