this past weekeend, i had the most incredible birthday possible. i had about 50 wonderful friends, from all the important parts of my life - my childhood, highschool, governors school, duke, and medical school,from all across the country, in my house for a night of laughter and memories. i was laughing til 5 in the morning, and it felt amazing. i kept looking around and thinking to myself, 'wow, im so lucky.' isnt it ironic?
