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 it...so 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.

Pity Party

I am tired, overwhelmed and sick.

I have two presentations to give this week, one on ethics and the other on some topic in black midwifery. My ethics presentation is done. I'm working on my black midwifery project now.

All I want to do is crawl into bed and go to sleep.

I have clinic tomorrow and it's supposed to be my next-to-last day, but there is a potential extra day built in if she wants me to take it.

I also have what feels like a mountain of random paperwork to do over the next few days that I am dreading.

Our car broke down on my way to the grocery store to remedy my empty refrigerator... just in time for the last 6 weeks of school, after which we were dumping it in the nearest junk yard.

Countdown to 5PM, end of semester:
37 days
909 hours
54589 minutes
3275355 seconds

Not soon enough.

10 years from now it will be something to shake your head and laugh over. You WILL make it - you are so close to done!
(But doesn't it suck that life always seems to gang up on one when you already have so much going on?)

You're in my thoughts. Hang in there.

Almost there girl. I've been sick too this week. It stinks but do what you can to hang in there!

Thank you for sharing your journey, from one minority midwife to another.
One day you will look back in pride because you hung in there.
