Harvard School of Public Health or Harvard Medical School . I've been obsessing over them all morning. I wantwantwantwantwant. I needneedneedneedneed to actually do my homework right now so I can up my chances at getting into whatever grad school I decide on. J'ai beaucoup des devoirs, surtout Francaise. Mais, Je l'aime. A demain.

Kick Push

cookies n cream folks
     Oh Lupe, kicking and pushing. Love this song. Almost as much as I love making lists.
      For example, today, I attempted walking to class again. This is my fourth attempt this week and fourth fail. It's so unintelligent and silly, every time I'm so hopeful as I drive to school straight from work and it literally doesn't cross my mind that my leg might not be good enough. Then I end up at the nearest building to where I parked, on a chair or in a bathroom frustrated. So as I sat in the Wilk Bookstore's bathroom today and while the leg frustration was getting flushed from my system I wrote this one:
Things I've Learned From Life Since My Right Knee...Happened:
     1. Being alone is not as bad of a thing as I had imagined it to be in my head.
     2. Be sober, Listen more.
     3. Rely on the Lord.
     4. Sometimes in life you really do need help, you can't do it on your own, and that's okay.
     5. People care, genuinely, way more often than you'd expect.
     6. Don't try to make a deal with God, bargaining when you have no leverage is just a bad idea.
     7. Smiling, despite conditions, makes life better.
     8. Be careful what you laugh at.
     9. Good Sleep saturates your day life.
   10. Submission & Sacrifice are two of life's most brilliant Teachers.
     And most of all, I will forever have ingrained in my soul a refreshed love for good health. I freaking love moving, I love sports, dancing, basketball, yoga, I love using my legs to drive, to walk to class, to walk and sit where ever I want in church, at a movie, or in class, to walk up/down stairs, jumping into my bed, running, doing somersaults, climbing trees, getting out my car to fill up with gas, taking the trash out, walking down store isles, lifting boxes when I move, jumping to get something on the high shelf, being able to crawl under a table if I need to get something, etc etc.
      And I love that even without my right knee I can have an awesome time hanging out with my man and/or friends. Tonight included.
