Sing It Celebration

Med school – and life in general – is about milestones.  You pass about a 100 million of ’em – some of them bigger and craggier than others – before someone deems you Doctor (which is just a shorter term for residency-training material).  Yesterday, I hopped over that milestone that was submitting my application to residency.  My ERAS application has been certified and submitted and a rather large number of program directors have hopefully already held it to their chests, exclaiming with tears of pure joy in the corners of their wise eyes, “This is the one!”  (A girl can dream.)  And a girl can celebrate the dust biting of yet another hurdle in the road of life.

    My daughter just received confirmation of her PH.D and has the diploma in her hands. We both understand what you are saying. I remember how it felt to, finally, receive my Teaching Certificate with a 4.0

      Congrats Dr. Daughter! Outstanding!
      Now, mind you, I have not graduated yet – graduation is in May 2013. Like all the other fourth year med students, I’m now applying for residency, will interview in the winter, match in the spring, and then graduate and go off to my residency (and live happily ever after).

    As a second comment – I used to drive home after a rough day at school or work before that and play the featured song loud enough to rattle the car!
