Uhhh... I'm now a doctor?
I am, despite beliefs to the contrary, alive. Despite the malicious efforts of the paperwork demon, I am still breathing though I'm upto my eyeballs in the white stuff. So while the demon snoozes, here's a quick update:
I am done with med school. Yep, by the end of March, I will add a Dr before my name and an MD after. (I can't believe it either - it seems too good to be true. You really mean I don't have to show up at a hospital until June?)
Speaking of June: I matched to a residency program. After a harrowing and painfully long six month process of application, interview and nail-biting, I'm finding myself a newly minted resident starting a residency that is a combined program in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. I start there in June.
Until then, I don't have to get out of bed at 4:30 am if I don't want to (and lets face it, I never ever want to. )
I'm heading Home, to India, for a two month vacation. I expect I shall get spoilt and pampered and generally fat while I get my visa and head back.
Thank you for all your love and support all through these years. I've been amiss, remiss and missing, but I do come back, a prodigal, a naughty child who won a reward for.... something. (k, I'm going to bed before the demon wakes up. I do have insomniac tendencies.)
Sunshine and laughter,
