I will be changing my name.
It feels right...I've never questioned it for one minute. I've talked about here...and I'm happy to say that it feels more joyous now that it's right around the corner. I was wondering how it would feel to know there was a limit to how many more days I would live with my born name.....
....and it feels like something big is about to happen...like the stars are going to align. Funny, huh. As my paperwork gets processed at my residency program, I had to fill out forms with my "anticipated name" (you know, for white doctor coats, name badges, business cards.) It was weird as I typed out my "new name". It was weird, and looked a bit foreign, but it made me smile. I'm happy with my choice...and will cherish these last few weeks with the name that connects me with my parents, my family and my Czech heritage.
Except, the hassle of it all freaks me out. Grrr. Read what the smart sassy lady of The Thirty Something Bride has to say about it here...I thought it was helpful...and may just save me some time and money. Two things I enjoy saving.
Did you change your name? What streamlined the process? What did you do first?
