My sister just got back in town from Saba, which is a medical school in the Caribbean. Which means I would only see her twice a year, for her two week break. One in May, one at Christmas. She has just finally finished up the two year program and is home for good. Now she has to study for two months and take another test. The final of all finals as I understand it and then she will be placed at a hospital to do clinical. She wants to stay in Michigan, but I am not sure where she will be placed, and neither does she.

When I was younger it was always us three, it is such a comfort feeling to have her back in my life. I have two older sisters who are twins, Katie is the one going to medical school and Jenni is going to Wayne State’s law school. They are a year and a half older then I am so we were all pretty close. It is funny how much more confident you become when you have someone who really loves you standing by your side. Together we are invincible, seriously though you don’t want to mess with the Gross girls. šŸ˜‰ To this day they are the only people to love me no matter what. It doesn’t matter how much I piss off a sister, she will always stand up for me, or be there when I really need her. I am truly lucky to have such wonderful people in my life.

Now I just have to figure out a way to get them climbing… Jenni is scared of falling, I mean but aren’t we all at first. I think if you always see the negative in everything it is kind hard to see the positives. My attitude is, yea you could die, and on to the next thing. It is a work in progress, such is life. šŸ™‚

  1. I like your attitude! Yeah, you could die. You could also die crossing the street. Fear is a big part of climbing… it never goes away, you just learn to manage it šŸ™‚

    Awesome that you’ve got a tight family šŸ™‚
