God willing

Today is the 3rd Saturday in May - who cares right? probably no one - unless you are in the NEOUCOM class of 2008, then you would care, because in a few hours you will be walking across the stage and you will officially be ____ M.D.! [insert expletive here!!]

Why do i care? because I am in the NEOUCOM class of 2010 - so God willing in 2 years, on the 3rd Saturday in may, I too will be walking across that same stage and they will say my name with an M.D. after it - finally - after the hardest 5 years of my life. Only to be followed by the next 6 hardest years....

And that scares the crap out of me, not in a bad way, in a ohmygodintwoyearsiamofficiallyresponsibleforlife kind of way. I know I can do it, I will be sort of doing it, learning to anyhow, in a few short months (again God willing) when/if I pass my boards. Yesterday was my last 'official' day of class learning for the rest of my life - no more lectures for me - now, it's just me - the books - and my brain.

It looks I am half way to that 3rd Saturday in May....

if it makes you feel better, i am pretty much in the same boat w/ my program. we don't really get "taught" anything, it is mostly up to us to figure out what we need/should learn and then figure out how to do it. it's frustrating and scary. good luck! and good luck studying for the boards.
