A year ago I pulled a full tack on what I had always thought I would do with my life and decided not to go to Medical School. I was confident I would be good at it, but instead of jumping with joy and enthusiasm, I was stuck with a feeling it wasn’t right. I couldn’t say without a doubt that medicine was the career I wanted to pursue. It was an awful few weeks struggling with that decision, but after it was made, I knew I wouldn’t regret my decision.
So here I am, flying to Orlando thinking how different things would be had I made the decision to go instead of stay. Not thinking back lustfully, despite the past few weeks being incredibly taxing, but thinking instead on all the great things that have happened this past year. The threat (or so it was) of moving to Long Island has given me an especially appreciative eye for Madison and its trappings.
Is the job I am doing now the one I want to do forever? Certainly not, and as someone who likes to have everything figured out, the uncertainty of what will be next is sometimes paralyzing. But those who have more faith in me than I sometimes do, assure me, I will figure it out. We shall see.
Below are a sampling of shots from this year and reasons why I know I made the right decision.
