A Black Female Medical Student

I decided to start a new blog today. I have done this in the past, tried and failed several times. But it won’t happen this time…. I have a feeling about this one.

I think I’m a maverick. I looked up the definition today:

“One that refuses to abide by the dictates of or resists adherence to a group; a dissenter.adj. Being independent in thought and action or exhibiting such independence…”

Anyways, thats where the blog title came from. Cuz I be maverickin’. It can be used as a verb, you know (wiki definition) or so says Wikipedia.

A little bit about me. Right now, I am without money. My credit card company decreased the limit on my card WITHOUT WARNING (click here!) and my phone company cut off my cell phone bill so I can’t call them to cuss them out. I also can’t get my phone back on because my credit card is now useless so…. yeah, I’m in a pretty pathetic situation.

I am also looking for a place to live in a little place called Chicago starting August 1. Today is July 5 and I still have NO IDEA where I will be living. I have even less time than it sounds because I’m going to Miami on July 23-27…. a trip that I still don’t know how I will be paying for *tears*.

I got paid yesterday and my check was immediately swallowed up due to my past few months of bad spending habits and irresponsible financial choices (see, I can take ownership of my faults). It sucks because this should have been a weekend of GREAT SHOPPING for me…. there were so many AMAZING sales this weekend *sobs*.

Alas, I am reaping the consequences of my actions. I know its my fault, but I didn’t think life after college would be like this. Bush and his abysmal leadership skills have wreaked havoc on the economy and my life! And I know I’m not the only one who’s crying. At least I got into med school…. can’t tell you how many friends I have wandering around aimlessly and jobless… and broke. Just last summer our eyes were starry-eyed and full of hope.

And now….. oh well.

Anyways as Ella said so beautifully, goodnight my love.

OH AND GO SEE HANCOCK! Saw it last night and LOVED IT!
