Happy Fall Y'all! That's what we say in the South when it gets anywhere below 80 degrees. I was able to walk from my car to my lab without sweating this morning so it's pretty much an epic day for me already. And in other news- Happy Medical Mondays! I haven't linked up in awhile, so to anyone who's new to my blog, here's the rundown:
I finished my PhD in Neuroscience this past May and am now a PostDoc doing research full-time (kill me now). I've begrudgingly been on this research track for going on 6 years now with the hopes of being a college professor after this year (spring break and Christmas holidays off? Sign me up!). But the real reason I link up with Medical Mondays is because my dear husband is an Orthopaedic Surgery fellow. After being with him through the last 2 years of medical school and all 5 years of Ortho residency, we are finally nearing the end of training! After this 1 year Sports Medicine fellowship, we'll be moving (somewhere) for his first "real" job. I blog about struggling with my career decisions, the ups and downs of the medical training process, and random fun things we do on the rare occasion we have a social life.
Now that you're caught up, here's what's going on in our lives right this very moment. This weekend, we'll be going back down for a 2nd interview at potential real job location #2 (!!!). You can read more about that here. I didn't go with him on the first interview there because I wanted to make sure he liked the people enough to seriously consider it before I took days off work. It obviously passed the first test, so now I'm going back with him for a second look. We're really excited about this one, but don't want to get our hopes up too much before a few more details are worked out. I'm mainly worried about Jeff having to cover high school and college football games every single weekend during football season for the rest of our lives, so I'm interested to see what sort of schedule they can work out for him. There's even a college nearby, so I could potentially find a teaching job there. Everyone keep your fingers crossed for us! I can't wait to update everyone next week :)
