This post is less about weddings, more about life. Just so ya know...
Yesterday some plans were altered that kinda shook me up, made me a lil more attentive, and pretty nauseated. Turns out I will have to leave for my New England externship adventure about a week early. For you newbie readers, I'm a med student, about to embark on my final year of school, which includes month long externships at hospitals around the country. In my case, the first four months will be in different north east locations - a different city each month (Boston, Philadelphia, Binghampton, and Providence) then it will be back to various Arizona locations. When I do make it back to Phoenix, next May, I will be getting married in 4 weeks.
Thinking about it makes me have a mini lil tear fest. I am definitely one girl that is always up for a new adventure - but this is one looooong adventure - and it doesn't include My Guy. That's what I'm so sad about. :-( He's such a supportive rock for me when life gets hard or when Attendings are brutal, and he's the best to celebrate with when victories are won and goals are conquered. And my sisters!? Man. They are hard to leave too. The idea of being alone is fairly frightening at this precise moment. Most of all, I'm terrified of being the "student" at these hospitals where they will be pimping me all day long. What if I don't know the answers!? All of a sudden I feel like I don't remember anything I've learned about medicine. I'm just... well... I'm awfully nervous.
On the flip side - I love a good road trip :-) Hello, 2700 miles.
