In terms of schooling, besides the 6-week Spanish class, I've pretty much taken the summer off. So when I went to school today for an orientation, it was like deja vu all over again.
Despite the familiarity, I found myself feeling anxious yesterday, like I had just downed a tall Starbuck's coffee. I felt jittery, nervous, and couldn't focus. Just then, my dear friend and former study partner Priscilla, now in a dietetic internship upstate, called. Perhaps she could sense it from my voice, but she spent a good 5 minutes reassuring me that everything was fine and gonna be great.
But how did she know? I certainly didn't tell her how I felt. When she called today, I asked Maria about it, as we both share a propensity to be anxious of the unknown. And we both had to laugh. Pris is just like that, an old soul in a very young body. I think that's why we love her so.
Thanks Pris. Miss you tons. And you're right. Everything is gonna be great.
