I graduated on Friday from my intern program!
So, it is true that I have graduated plenty of times now (like more than I can count on one hand..), but alas I am still NOT DONE. GAH! Oh well. Now on to some details.
We got the “Save the Date” for this event months and months ago, probably in November, or something ridiculous like that. Last week, we were asked to submit pictures of ourselves. I was like, “Why do you need my picture…multiple pictures?”
Fact: I am terribly not photogenic and pictures of myself tend to make me cringe. Occasionally, I’ll have a good one and I’m all like:
Fact: My fourth year of medical school, one of my goals was to become more photogenic. I failed to accomplish this goal. *Sigh* So it is still something I need to figure out. Any tips? Lol
Fact: I’ve literally been told that I look much better in person. Ha! Oh well, if I sit down and think about this, it is much better this way than the other way around. But still, it would be nice not to look awful in the majority of my pictures, haha.
Anyway, why the confusion? You see, I had thought the event was for the graduating 3rd years. Turns out, it was for the graduating interns (who are doing there residency at another program), as well! Glad I realized this before the event.
What would have also been nice to know beforehand? That we’d have to give a little speech. Yep, you heard me right. We were asked to give a speech, impromptu, while we were sitting on the “stage”. Therefore, there was zero time to think about what we might say. We all just sort of looked at each other like:
By the time you got over the horror of this fact, it was your turn. The speeches turned out fine, some were awkward, but I say we got through it well as a group. People thought mine was funny, so I take that as a win.
We got a really nice certificate that was not in Latin at the end of our speech! I could read it! Yay! Haha. We also were given a pen. Lol. Yep, a pen. Well, granted, good pens are a REALLY HOT commodity in my world. If you have a good one, you really have got to keep an eye on it.
Yes, there are good ones and bad ones. I’ll confess that I do have particular requirements for pens that I use during work. (Otherwise, in the outside world, I’m not that picky.) I bet everyone in the medical field knows what I’m talking about, though. However, having your good pen “disappear” happens more frequently that you may expect. Some people are more territorial over their pens than you may expect.
I’m not that extreme. However, I admit I will pay extra special attention to a good pen I loan out and I am not afraid to ask for it back if the person is hanging on to it even when they are done with it no matter who they are. Or, since I always have a plethora of pens on me (hey I’m an intern remember?) I’ll often have at least one that I can part with and not lend out my good one. (Particularly, if that person is a notorious pen snatcher).
I feel like the program knows of these pen problems and tried to mitigate it by engraving our names on the pens. Ha! So now I have a fancy pen with my name on it that hopefully 1. Will deter it from “disappearing”? 2. Will make it easier to find if it does go missing? Guess we shall find out.
Anyway the rest of the night included a super delicious meal, although I’m still not sure what dressing was on the appetizer salad. I couldn’t even place the tastes well…which is weird and odd and it was green and…tangy? Maybe? Hm, I don’t know, but not important haha. I ate around it. The night concluded with some dancing, but it was pretty limited to just my group of interns. Haha. Oh well. We had lots of fun and it’ll be sad to part from them since we’ve been through so much together this year.
Now let’s get to the recipe! This one was so filling that I stopped and came back to it a few times before I completely finished it! Even though there aren’t many ingredients it is packed with clean deliciousness. If only I still had all the ingredients to make it again! I personally ate it for dinner, but if you are more of a savory breakfast person, this would be a great recipe to try for your AM meal!
How many graduations have you had?
