Breathe Easy, You've Found Me ((HUGS))

People will wonder why this blog is needed, why minority midwifery student? It's very simple actually; I was looking for this blog...but I couldn't find I created it. We all have unique experiences, and every experience, every story, can help someone else. I am a black girl from the hood at an ivy league professional school. That, alone, is reason enough to write. Somebody was looking for this blog. Someone wanted proof that what I'm doing can be done - even when you come from where we come from.

To that person especially, WELCOME.

Brain Spasm

Stewing in old stuff. Racing with new stuff. Too jumbled to write down, really.

Gave the man the week off from dish duty because I felt like he should have a "break" of some kind, like I do. (I do the cookin, he does the cleanin - every time X 7 years and 5o more to come) But I really do HATE washing dishes. Ugh.

Read a chapter of Rock My Soul at the book store today while having coffee, then met with a PhD student from my school to discuss getting a PhD, which was interesting because she pretty calmly discouraged me from doing so...

So much going on.

I'm practicing my knots (for suturing)...which is a kind of cool thing to do as my mind is racing...

I'm in a totally different field, but I must say...I pretty regularly discourage people from getting a PhD too. I'm about 6 weeks from finishing mine after 4.5 years of work, and I do wonder if it will ever be worth the time and tears I put into it.

Think long and hard before you sign up. If you KNOW academia is where you want to work for the rest of your life, then go for it. But otherwise...
