11-12: oops

well, i missed a couple of days in there. but, i graduated! it's still shameful, though. i will repent by posting pictures of the graduation festivities. tomorrow.

graduation was fun! i guess that's the last time i will get to graduate. and i've already used up the 'wedding' card, so the occasions to bring everyone together around ME and celebrate something are perhaps over. well, i guess there's still the theoretical baby shower(s). (do you get one per baby, or just one total? i always wondered about that).

i don't feel any smarter now or more qualified for anything now that i am equipped with an MD (dangerous, huh?). i guess that makes sense, as i have never felt older at birthdays, and i didn't even feel more 'married' after our wedding, oddly enough. i think it will feel more real after my first call night, or when i get my long white coats. kind of like i only notice that i'm older when i am lucky enough NOT to get carded sometimes (ok, rarely) or more 'married' when we do things like discuss finances together and then go to bed at 10. i guess that makes me feel older too.


  1. Congratulations, Dr. Sarah! :) Thinking about the fact that I will most likely have a PhD in about a year, I can say that there is no way that I know enough about science to really deserve that. I figure it'll be the same way when I finish med school - that's why there's residency, right? :) And we already wear long coats, so it's not like that's even something to look forward to!

  2. Congrats! I'm sure you are a great doctor, even if you don't feel like it yet. And as I am learning about baby showers, it's usually one total, not one per baby (unless there's some weird circumstance, like 15 years between kids and you gave everything away.) But it is something to look forward to (along with actually having the child, of course!) Enjoy your time till residency starts!
