The time has come. This is good-bye.
It is hard to believe that I started this blog over four years ago. It hardly seems possible that so much time has passed. I went to Grenada. I came back to the States. I took Step 1 and 2 and CS and did my clinical rotations. My grandmother passed away. My father had heart surgery. We got a puppy and he turned one. I figured out what I wanted to be when I grow up. I applied and matched into what I believe will be be perfect residency program for me. I made amazing life-long friends while I ventured to a foreign country and back. I regret none of it and would do it again in an instant.
Medical school is over. Complete. No more. I don't even think I know what that means. Someone called me "Doctor" yesterday and I started to correct him but then as I thought about it, well technically.... wow. I don't think that has sunk in yet. I mean I feel that I am done with being a student. But am I ready to be Neuro Chick-Kid Doctor? I don't know but I hope so?!?! Regardless of how I feel I WILL be. And in just seven weeks time.
I finished my last rotation and today I get my diploma (officially it is dated today, I won't actually get it in the mail for another week I suspect.) The graduation ceremony is still a month away but by then I'll have moved to Texas and started residency. So this is it.
I don't have anything profound to write or an amazing finish for this blog. But thank you for reading and accompanying on me over the past four years.
I do plan to continue blogging and will post a link to my new blog soon but for now, good bye. I am signing off. Cheers!
