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.

It's Coming

It's been months, I know. And I'm sorry. I really am.
But this is hard. 
Period.
This is my last week of integration. 14 loooong weeks coming to an end. 
I just finished looking at the feedback from my thesis draft.
And it hit me...
I might actually do this...
I might actually graduate from this institution...
Maybe some people read that and thought, "well, duh." But I tell you I still only halfway believe I'm even here... so this... this is just
A lot to process.
I think about it and I get teary, my heart beats fast, and I have to take deep breaths and tell myself it's not over yet... that I haven't done it... yet...
But by the grace of God, it's coming...
One day soon I'm not going to have to talk myself down off the excitement ledge... I'm gonna jump head first into blissful self rejoicing so strong that I forget my own name.
Oh yes. 
It's coming.
