Thankful Thursday ~ October 2015

It’s the last Thursday of October, which means it’s time for another Thankful Thursday post!

  1. Although this will not make sense to a lot of people, I’d like to start by saying how thankful I am for my relationship with Abdul. He and I may have broken up earlier this week, but I still think it’s important for me to recognize and appreciate the good things that came from our time together. Our relationship was definitely not perfect (no relationship ever is), but I am so happy that he and I were able to get as close as we did and teach each other things about ourselves that we may not have otherwise learned.
  2. I am also grateful for my friends at school, specifically Shuchi, Sumeer, and Zaheera. I have gotten much closer to each of them since we met last fall, and we have been particularly supportive of one another recently. I know now that they will always be a part of my life regardless of what paths we choose to take.
  3. Lastly, I am thankful for teachers, especially the professors at GA-PCOM who have gone above and beyond to help me over the past couple years. It is reassuring to know that there is a handful of professors who are happy to help when I’m struggling with a difficult concept academically, offer advice regarding my budding medical career, and even advise me when I am having a tough time coping with a situation completely unrelated to school.

A Long Overdue Thankful Thursday ~ September 2015

Because I missed the past two months and don’t want to miss another one, I’m sharing my September Thankful Thursday post a week late (better late than never, right?).

  1. First of all, I am grateful for dry shampoo. This may seem like a silly thing to be thankful for, but it really does take away some stress on days (like today) when I wake up late and don’t have time to wash or style my hair before going to school or work. Of course, it’s convenient for camping and music festivals, too.
  2. I am also thankful for my workstudy job at the library. I only have to work 11 hours a week, the pay is really good, and I’m able to study a good bit while I’m there.
  3. Lastly, I am grateful for my roommate, Namrata, and our amazing townhouse that’s just a mile from campus. I’ve had some good roommates in the past, but Namrata is definitely the best I’ve had. We are really good friends who have similar priorities, like the same types of food (and are both vegetarians),  agree on the temperature we should set the thermostat to, and keep our rooms and the house equally clean.
