10 honest thoughts on being loved by a skinny boy,... →
andafterwards: 1. I say, ‘I am fat.’ He says ‘No, you are beautiful.’ I wonder why I cannot be both. He kisses me hard. 2. My college theater professor once told me that despite my talent, I would never be cast as a romantic lead. We do plays that involve singing animals and children with the ability to fly, but apparently no one

life is a cruel joke.
So I’ve been really down lately about this, and I don’t think I should be, but I can’t help it. My boyfriend and I both took a year off of school and applied to grad schools this year. He has a ton of interviews and since it was late in the season, I thought I was out of luck in terms of med school interviews. I figured we would just move wherever he goes for his PhD program and...

The reason I’ve decided to start blogging is because I think I’m depressed. … No really, I think so. But I also think that it’s a very common reaction to Plan A not working out. In my case, Plan A is medical school. This is my second cycle of applying and once again, I am batting 0% on interviews. There are a number of things I can blame. My less-than stellar MCAT...
