Next Thursday I will leave for Washington D.C. to begin one of six rotations. It’s hard to imagine that I have gotten this far, and how little time is left. But I am sure my ACPHS classmates will all agree, the end came to quick.
So, what should I do now? It would be cheesy and clichéd to talk about how I am beginning some great adventure, or how I am about to embark on some magnificent journey that will affect the rest of my life. No, instead I will quote a great and simple story to summarize my future.
Dr. Seuss once said, “We see them come. We see them go. Some are fast. Some are slow. Some are high, and some are low.” Sure, maybe the Doc was talking about fish, but I think he could have said the same about the weeks of a year. Time will fly by, and sometimes it will crawl slower than a Dr. Meek lecture. Regardless, I should cherish the time I have left. Because in about a year, no matter of how ready I am, I will have to grow up.
