MD-To-Be. Welcome to the brand new chapter of my life! As of last Friday I moved to Columbus, Ohio to start my journey through med school. So far Orientation has been extremely tiring and exhilarating - meeting special people and new friends and faculty who come from many backgrounds with remarkable stories and personalities. It is exhausting to say your name and where you're from over and over again - it's like we already have to start memorizing material haha.

The White Coat Ceremony was Monday and this is it! This is the moment we've all worked towards for so long! I went through the whole thing not even processing what this entailed. Yes my coat needs to be shortened and taken in just about everywhere (the Dean even said "yeah ... we'll shorten those for you" as he shook my hand) but it's my passport to the hospital! We get to work with actual patients in just 2 months, making our new curriculum at Ohio State space age and relevant.

I am blessed by every kind of spiritual being that ever existed, because my Dad helped me move in and did everything basically (color me spoiled), and my dear friends from childhood and high school came to visit. I'm adjusting surprisingly well to the environment and running errands all the time. Next Monday the lectures start - wonder how that's going to turn out! Columbus is a unique city with lots of opportunity and fun places to explore. So far I've had the best Mediterranean food on this continent (imo) and late night pizza with an inappropriately named sauce (four letter word that begins with an sl and ends with t if you're curious ... it's Sriracha and ranch). There are thrift stores and little boutiques and a mall but I doubt I'll be spending much time and money there for the next four years! However, I'm doing a fair job of getting dressed well every morning and snapping a few outfit pictures in my apartment. Those posts will regularly be posted in my now regularized life schedule once I get internet next week. For now it's sitting in the library and using their wifi after hours xD

YES, I am going to keep blogging. YES, I still love pretty clothing. YES, just like Professor Oak says on Pokemon - there's a time and place for everything! Of course I won't wear mini skirts with my white coat and Daisy Dukes in clinic, but doesn't mean I can't rock floral pumps like the petite lady doc who coated me (she and I are already developing a connection over this). More than ever I need this passion to keep me going and to destress. More than ever I like to hear from you wonderful readers! And I will never lose this goofy fun-loving make-other-people-laugh nature of mine because the healthiest people in the world have a sense of humour. Laughter is the best medicine.

Congrats! I remember when I wore my white scrubs the first day at nursing school... it felt so exhilirating! Our senior year a few of my classmates burned theirs on a bonfire but I kept them! To me they were a mark of going to such a profession

Congrats Angela!! Best of luck with your studies towards being a MD!

Oooooooh you're going to med school!
That's so exciting!

I'm very excited to follow along with you on your journey through med school. Right now, I kind of want to become a doctor but I'm so scared at the thought of possibly killing someone. It'll be really interesting to join along on the ride as you work your ways through all the intensive studying that comes with being a doctor! Perhaps by seeing some of the things you go through in med school, I'll be able to decide whether or not medicine is the right career path for you.

I can definitely say that you'll probably be one of the best dressed doctors-in-training in your class.

I can't wait to see more!! :)

Congrats! Thanks for being so devoted to your readers during this great adventure you're embarking on your dream of becoming a M.D. The best thing I can say is **Good Luck**. P.S. I remember dissecting cadavers in anatomy and going late nights with my classmate to study with the cadavers to prepare for exam. Nothing better than formaldehyde to start your day.

Angie | Pandaphilia.com September 18, 2012 at 9:40 PM   said...

aww thank you! it's wonderful to hear from fellow student docs :) i know ... i'm already kind of liking the smell o_o . we go hard at anatomy in november. for now it's a lot of diseases and biochem, which is harrowing enough!
