exhale… it’s over.
The match is over and I know where I’ll be for the next chunk of my life. I lucked out because I’m going to my top choice for residency. But still, I can’t help but feel like I’ll miss having the residency match process to always complain about. Sort of like having a 25 pound tumor cut off. It’s gone and it feels good to have the weight off, but it’s sort of weird to not have it around any more.
Knowing life though, even as limited as I have, something new will shortly appear to fill void about which I can complain.
Anyway, I’m pretty psyched but I’m still waiting for it to sink in. I’ve been at the same institution for eight years (> a quarter of my life) and now I’m moving away.
Thanks for everyone’s good thoughts!
