I’ve been quiet on this front, but life is popping in the real world. My beautiful daughter Alexa has just learned she’s been accepted to the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine!!!!!!
Woo, hoooooooo! Universal health care for WriteChic, bitches!!! 😀
I’m already helping her with financial aid.
Fucking shoot me. Paperwork for bureaucrats.
She’s attending the LECOM campus near Tampa, Florida so she won’t be too far away.
Alexa graduated last year with a degree in Chemistry with a biochemistry emphasis. Fuck, she was applying quantum mechanics to carbon atoms her last semester of school. Her last shadowing experience was with a neurologist.
I brought into existence someone a million times smarter than me.
And more than beauty, brains, and drive is her decency, her ethic, her fire, and passion. If I had not given birth to this girl, I’d want to know her anyway, be her friend or neighbor.
I don’t know if this is the final great prize in parenting, to see the child step autonomously across the threshold into her own promising future, but it feels fantastic. 😀
