I hope you don't mind if I take a little diversion in my "blatherings" today. This has been a really great week, even if I didn't get in a lot of reading. One nice distraction to my reading was my best friend's graduation from medical school. I have come to know a teeny bit of the pain, agony, and hard work that went in to surviving these past four years and am super proud of her for getting through!
Regardless of all the studying and work she had to put in, she managed to continue to read great books. I loved watching her use books as a reward after major tests or on holidays, reading herself into a frenzy during her down times! In fact, when she would come to my house, she would start snooping through my bookshelves and library finds, writing down every book that caught her eye. She might be an M.D. now, but I love that she's as big of a bookworm as any of us!
To my friend and fellow book-a-holic, I wanted to say a big CONGRATULATIONS! I'm going to miss her as she heads off to Michigan for her residency in anesthesiology *sniff*, but I'm also excited for her. Here's a picture of the two of us in Greece, on our big trip before she started medical school. What fun times. Here's to hoping there's a lot more to come!
