So. That test didn't go *nearly* as badly as I thought. Now, don't get me wrong, it didn't go particularly WELL but, I'm not getting kicked out of medical school anytime soon. 

Had some company over tonight.  It was really nice, I'm glad everyone came over. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to have people in my home..

So I'm sitting here at 1:30 am, scanning anatomy notes for tomorrow (because God knows we can't freaking stop for a day) and I get an IM.  I have a ridiculous memory for screennames, so I knew exactly who it was but it's what they had to say that was pretty freakin cool: 

--------------------:constance... fifi... this is -----------.. i just wanted to drop you a quick note to sorta comment on an lj post you made awhile back  BUT it had no comments allowed so im commenting here:
SinginFifi (1:34:19 AM): Hey there :-)
--------------------: you made my schedule for me many many moons ago and you were always kind to me and you made a posi difference in my eary ucf years
--------------------: so there!

So we talked for a while, and my day really go brightened. 

but i just wanted to drop a line  one of the most alienating this about this particular culture (vs. say, my fam in germany) is that there's this social stigma in telling people that they've made a difference in your life. so... i try and deconstruct that disconnect whenever possible.
SinginFifi (2:23:34 AM): thanks...that's really freaking awesome of you
SinginFifi (2:23:48 AM): I'll see what I can do about passing that along. :-)

Sometimes we forget to tell the people in our lives who have made a difference what they mean to us. 
It's something I'll work on. Now...i need to go to bed.........i have class in 5 hours. Oh holy crap. 5 hours. wtf.

I think that's really nice! I try to let people know when they've made a difference in my life, but not nearly often enough. Really, who wouldn't enjoy hearing that? Let's start a movement!

And, I think it's awesome that you're in medical school. Hang in there! :)

Yeah, that's a good point ; I know I don't tell people when they make a difference in my life. Since teh confession bandwagon's pulling by, i'll hop on (okay that ... sucked) and say you really did make a difference as well. That summer with you guys was.. eye opening and amazing and I'll never forget (most of) the stuff you did for me. It ment alot.
