Overwhelmed and disappointed.

Today, I was broken.

A single pebble, a single thought, landed in my mind. Like a magnet, other pebbles began to pile around it until my spirit was so heavy that it took an exhausting amount of effort to simply bring myself onto the medical school grounds. Then a phone call with upsetting family news. I tried holding the pieces around me together during classes, but with every passing minute my shield kept slipping.

Only when it is dark, can you see the stars.
