Graduation from PA school

Thursday, December 17, 2015

Happy Thursday friends! I am currently quarantined in my bed with the flu. Yep, it sucks majorly. Fever, body aches, sore throat, headache, basically feeling like death. I have officially decided that I have the worst luck ever… I catch everything. Looking on the bright side though… better now than next week.

+++

For the past 27 months my life has revolved around PA school. I cannot tell you how many hours I have spent in our study or in the library, just counting the minutes until graduation. I have sacrificed so many things, said "no" to so many get togethers, and been a less than pleasant person (sorry honey). Thankfully, that is all OVER because I am DONE! Officially Owen Davis, Physician Assistant. I'm pretty sure my husband is even more excited than I am, bless him. 

Graduation was such a happy time where me and my 29 classmates celebrated all our hard work, blood, sweat, and tears (so many tears). We got our long white coats (!!). It was quite surreal and I was so thankful to have my family there to celebrate with me.

I am very hard on myself and am constantly pushing myself to be more, to be better. It is not often that I am satisfied with my achievements… bad quality that I am constantly working on. But this time, I am truly proud of myself. My dad always told me that I can be or do anything I set my mind to. And though I doubted this so many times of the last 2.5 years, I am so proud of myself for pushing through and achieving my goals!!

 Special thank you to my amazing mom who has spent countless hours praying for me during this difficult journey. Constant words of encouragement. I never would have made it without her support!


Congratulations, ECU PA Class of 2015! We did it!
