Then I begin to wonder if there will be a time when I too will be able to meet up with my white haired girlfriends and spend the morning chatting. Quite honestly thinking about the future scares me because I have not idea about where I will be. I can’t even guess what state I will be living in two years from now. In the end I have faith that everything will fall into place and have to remember to “not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble in its own.”
Recently I did find out some exciting news, my placement for the rural track rotations. I will be completing my Family Medicine, Pediatrics, and OB/GYN rotations in Joplin, MO. However, this means that I will be living in Joplin from January 2011 until the end of May. Joplin was not my top choice of places to go especially since it is 4 hours from both Columbia and Wash MO. Yet I am looking as another experience where I am venturing out of my comfort zone. Some of the best experiences in my life have been during the times where I stepped out on my own, going to a new place, meeting new people, and ultimately learning more about who I am.
