New Grad, New Anxiety?
Let me tell you a little story about the first couple months following my graduation from college. I was excited. It was a rough 6 years of pharmacy school, and now I was going to be living in my own apartment in a new town with a job lined up. I was set up for success, right? First, I just have to get my pharmacist license. Easy. The pass rate of the licensing exam was 95% so, there was nothing to worry about. I had been a decent student and I have all the study materials I should need already purchased. I moved in quickly, since I had no furniture yet, and bought myself a mattress with a financing plan the store offered. Thank goodness I had enough credit for at least that. With my mattress and a borrowed folding table with chairs from a friend, I set to studying.
I never really knew her. She may have been my mother, but she had been gone for many, many years. So, how have I found myself in this house, the only relative left, to do with what I will? Imagine my surprise when I get a phone call from a man I have never met, telling me she is no longer with us. My mother, someone I barely knew, left me everything she owned. Her house, twenty thousand dollars, and all her belongings. At least, that is what the lawyer said. It took me a week, but I have finally made it out here. My job has kept me so busy back in the city that I barely had time to do anything for myself. Although it was a pain to come out here, I am grateful for the break from the hustle and bustle back home.
