Bittersweet

This week work has been CRA-ZY! It's graduation weekend, all the students are back on campus, and my schedule has been packed. I've only worked here for two years, so most of the students I don't know. I still find my self getting emotional inside, thinking of how they must feel about about all they've accomplished. It's pretty cool to watch -- friends being united for the first time since they've been on clinical rotations, all the families here who couldn't be prouder. I have a good job, and I'm glad I get to be apart of this special occasion.

I've gotten to be good friends with a couple of girls who are spouses of '08 graduates. They're getting ready to move away as their husbands start their residencies. I'm excited for them -- a new city, a new adventure, the fact that they too survived med school! Still, it's bittersweet. I've cried a couple of times at my desk today... Note to self: pull your self together. I'll miss them, but I know they'll do great. Life really is an adventure, and you never know what will happen next.
