Writing has been really frustrating to me lately. Writing ideas (at least for the past few months) have been difficult to come by, and putting a writing idea into words just seemed to hard.

Looking at a blank screen with a flashing line, it seems like I don’t know the best way to start writing. However, the more I thought about writing, the more I was determined to make this blog an outlet for me.

The last time I wrote in a meaningful way was back in high school, which seems like an eternity ago. Back then, I was a different person living in a different world.

Now that I’m applying to medical school, I’d like to say that I’m a better person, that I’m a completely new person than I was after I had graduated high school. It certainly feels that way: I’m now much more comfortable with who I am as a person. Even though I’m not entirely sure of what I want, I’m fairly certain that given time, life will give me what I need. That is to say, even if I don’t ever get accepted to medical school, life will work out in ways that I can never imagine. The hard part is getting there in the first place.

Although I can’t predict what my future holds, what I can do is to try and enjoy the ride. This blog is to help you, the reader, come along with me, and see where life leads me. The future may seem like a scary place, but the first step is to take a leap of faith.
