How crazy is it that in a little under four months, I’m going to graduate! And in just four days, I find out where I match?! So much is going on and I feel like giving a little update!
The start of the beginning
After my last audition rotation, I started on my required electives needed to graduate. I finished infectious disease, plastic surgery, and now I’m starting on eight weeks of family medicine. 2018 started off rather sick for me but I am super excited to see what this year brings. I’ve stared at “2018” for four years now and now that it’s here, I am that much closer to graduating!
What is next?
I just submitted my rank list of residency programs, so I will be awaiting the results on Match Day!
Setting my sights on Japan and other travels
I’m so excited to finally plan a trip to Japan! Ever since I took my first Japanese language course in 9th grade, I’ve had to forego many opportunities to take a trip there because I had to do something or another for medical school. The opportunity presented itself when the flight I was tracking for months went from $1400 to $620 in one night. You can’t beat that price. So, come March, I’ll get to finally check off my third bucket list item! I also plan on traveling somewhere domestically before graduation but to where I’m not sure.
I graduate in less than 115 days and I can’t believe it’s almost here. I just put in an order for my graduation regalia and the girly girl in me is already on the hunt for the perfect graduation dress. I’m most excited to see my classmates and best friends. I already know that it’ll be one of the happiest moments of my life.
So, overall, life has been really good lately! With no exams, interviews, or tough rotations left, I will be spending the rest of my school year enjoying as much time as possible with my family and friends in Minnesota. It’s amazing how much can change over the course of four years and I can’t wait to see how the next several years play out.
