So I’m super sorry I haven’t been responding to asks and stuff and I know I have a bajillion but literally tomorrow determines whether I fail out of med school or not and then I have two more tests after that and I had a test on Friday and Wednesday last week and I’m going literally insane and what is air and water and oh my god SO MANY MEDICAL TEARS
You’ll notice that I haven’t talked about love. Or about happiness. I’ve talked about becoming — or remaining — the person who can be happy, a lot of the time, without thinking that being happy is what it’s all about. It’s not. It’s about becoming the largest, most inclusive, most responsive person you can be.
