First Day of School....

It's my first day of medical school orientation... cue the cheesy movie music and the flashback sequence...

It's been a long journey. I've worked long and hard to get here. I feel so blessed that this is the door that God has opened for me, so blessed that His calling on my life is to be able to heal the sick and wounded. Somehow it doesn't seem real yet... like a dream that's so good I don't want to wake up from it... I suppose when I'm knee deep in texts studying for exams and trying to figure out exactly what in all of this information I'm given I must absolutely retain... this dream like feeling will go away. But for right now... I'm just glad to be here...

Here's to making friends on the first day! Here's to hoping I picked just the perfect first day of school outfit!   And most importantly here's to making dreams come true!

And just because one can never get enough of the prep school fashion look, here are a few shots from Hunter Parish's GQ spread a while back.... honestly if I could be half as chic as that brunette model I would certainly be the most popular girl in class :)

With your fashion sense I am thinking "Elle Woods goes to medical school." Good luck on your first day!

It's great that you feel blessed - remember that feeling on rough days!

I know I'm a day late - I've been traveling so much for work - but I have been thinking of you and hoping that you are doing well. I'm sure you kicked-ass yesterday!

I hope you have been enjoying school! My sister is starting her second year of med school in a few weeks :)
