Well. I finished medical school (yay!), went on my first European vacation, bought my first car, rented my first house, and have graduated. I am officially Dr. ... M.D. And yes, I still feel like an imposter. Orientation for work starts on Monday and while I am very excited and looking forward to actually DOING what I have wanted/trained to do for decades at this point (and kind of super excited about having my first check since my pennies working for Motherhood Maternity and my odd-jobs in telemarketing and flee-markets) I have this awful irrational thought that someone will look at me and say, "Hey, how did you get here? Sorry there must have been some mix-up in the paperwork. We did not want you. You are clearly not qualified." I can't say I am excited to be working 80+ weeks but there are so many other good things happening in life right now that I can't complain. I have so much to be thankful and happy for right now. Life is good.
I will try not to avoid my violin anymore. I have just been playing the piano for the past two months. *sigh* I probably have to backtrack again. For some reason, that extra 2 minutes to take the violin out and put it together looks like so much when compared to just plopping down in the piano chair when I have 2 minutes to play. I like to think that a busy person would understand. So far people just look at me strangely when I explain that to them. :-P
Also, I am so excited to meet my new nephew whose name we don't know yet! Only a few more days till that little German-Indian boy comes into the world! I can't wait to see what mischief he will get up to. :-)
