2013, mixed feelings

I have totally mixed feelings about this New Year.  2012 was an emotional roller-coaster.  The death of my grandmother, a rather jarring car accident, 2 trips to the Emergency room (as a patient), all the emotions of 3rd year clerkship, a hard break-up, then meeting someone new (and extraordinary), deciding to take a research year, moving to a new state, 2 cross country road trips, a trip to India... it has been a BIG and overwhelming year.

2013 was supposed to be the year I graduated medical school.  A huge part of me wishes it still would be the year I graduate medical school.  Instead, it is now becoming the year I figure out 4th year electives, begin residency applications, and try to *hopefully* get a publication out of all this research.  Ideally it will also be a year full of seeing my family, nurturing my relationship, taking better care of my health, and finding time to have fun.  Maybe I'll also make some art and learn some Spanish.

Happy New Year! I hope it's filled with everything you hope for and more (including a great residency spot).
