New Beginnings--I'm an Intern!

Ahhhhhhhh, Today-July 1, 2017 begins my Intern Year!!!!
Totally can't believe its here.
But before New Resident details let me recap what's been going on since Match Week; because I think thats the last time I posted.  I don't know how that happened! I'm gonna try to do better. Really....

So, first--GRADUATION!!!!! Woooot wooooot!

Graduation season was a ton of fun!
My family, friends & I went back to St. Maarten...where it all started.  It was great being on the island without worrying about school, studying, applications, or interviews.  It was just fun in the sun, reconnecting with classmates, and enjoying everything the island had to offer.

I stayed for 3 weeks and went to the beach as much as possible!!!! I'm looking forward to going back.  I LOVE that island!

Aside from graduation, for the last few months, I've been vacationing & getting organized for my start of Residency.  

Now, about Intern Year--it's here! 
I made it to Milwaukee and got settled in, met my new Co-Residents & had Orientation this past week. My Resident class is super cool! We all get along so well and are all really happy to have matched into our program.  
Our Seniors & Faculty are ridiculously nice and have done everything they can to help us feel comfortable and get acclimated to the program. 
I almost feel ready to start, hahahaha.  
No, seriously, I'm as ready as I can be for this next step.  
We've studied & prepared, gotten office space, business cards, LONG white coats & even the dreaded pagers--and now it's time to get down to business...
Tomorrow, lololol.  That's when my first shift is.  So I have a few more hours to wrap my head around the fact that I'm starting my first job as an MD.

Let's go!

Until next time...
