A pretty good few weeks closing with some eye-opening news
I haven't blogged in a while mainly because I never have anything to blog about. However today I decided I would just blog about what has happened to me recently. I guess I need to use these blog powers sometimes. So here I go:
Well I finished up my first year of college on April 25, which was a huge relief because man, I was ready for summer. I have taken the summer off and it is the best feeling in the world to have that first year of college under my belt. I can say that is was a great experience and something I will never forget. I will remember the great friends I made and the first chapter in my adult life. I plan to return in the fall and continue on my way to completing the Radiology program.
Another part of my life recently has been job searching. I have applied at a few places even turned down a job due to a long travel distance and bad hours. Hopefully something will come through, as I really need something to do and the extra money will be so nice.
There have also been other great events that have happened for me in the past few weeks or so, most of which I wont go into because they are kind of personal, but the point of this blog is to mention what just happened a few hours ago. We received a call from my grandparents that my uncle(whom I am very close to and consider a friend more than an uncle) had been admitted to ICU. He has a very bad case of cirrhosis of the liver. He is not a heavy drinker which is usually the cause of this disease, however he just has a very bad liver in general. Not gonna go into too much detail, but basically we were told that there is nothing more that can be done, and this saddens me deeply.
Normally I would never blog about something like this because well.....it is personal. However, the reason I even blogged about this is because today I realized how quickly life can change. I have been spoiled, having never lost a relative in my lifetime, and never having to deal with traumatic experiences, but tonight it hit me that once you think life is perfect, you can be punched in the face with something like this. Idk, I guess this might be a positive for the future, where I no longer take things for granted.
