“Keep Your Head to the Sky”

The day is here. It’s September 5th, which means ERAS (the electronic residency application system) is now open for students to submit and certify their applications. Although applications aren’t released to programs until September 15th, applicants can choose to submit early and avoid the potential traffic or website delay that may occur on the 15th.

In the midst of all this, ya girl (hey, it me!) is on her knees, praying, and trying to stay optimistic. Curve balls, oh curve balls. I know that’s the name of this blog, but sheeshh, I still get surprised when one comes my way like hol’ up, you forreal? Right now? Anyhoo, here is some optimism for others out there (and me!), who maybe are stressed about what the residency interview cycle may hold, nervous for whatever reason, or *trying* not to flip out because something didn’t go your way…

Keep your head to the sky

Optimistic” by Sounds of Blackness

“Keep, keep on
Never say die
When in the midst of sorrow
You can’ t see up when looking down
A brighter day tomorrow will bring
You hear the voice of reason
Telling you this can’t never be done
No matter how hard reality seems
Just hold on to your dreams
Don’t give up and don’t give in
Although it seems you never win
You will always pass the test
As long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky
Be optimistic
If things around you crumble
No, you don’t have to stumble and fall
Keep pushing on and don’t you look back
I know of storms and strive
I been around them all of life 
Just think ahead and you’ll be inspired
To reach higher and higher.
You’ll always do your best
If you learn to never say never
You maybe down, but you’re not out.
Don’t give up and don’t give in
Although it seems you never win
You will always pass the test
As long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky (you can win child!)
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky
Be optimistic
Don’t you let no body stop you
Be optimistic
You can win, yes
Never say die.”
