I find myself a month out of school and I can’t believe how fast time has gone by. Seriously… Is this how time goes in the big world?

Graduation was a dream. It was way more than I thought it would be. I didn’t get wasted drunk because I had to fly out the next day to my new home. I did the bad hangover on a plane ride back from New Orleans Amsect meetings and it was unforgetable.

The new job is going good. I am in the Midwest still so that is comforting even though I am 11hrs from family. What I have learned is that one can easily build your own family.

Some struggles that I have had is remembering names. I usually have an excellent memory but being thrown names in the Operating room has been a struggle.

I feel blessed to be in the place that I am and everyone has welcomed me with open arms. 🙂
