We’ve been watching American Idol since its second season and it is always a bit of a letdown, when the season ends. There was a lot of talent this year, particularly among the female contestants. It’s no secret that after several seasons of male wins, the producers were hoping for a woman to take the title. It’s a shame that they felt the need to accomplish this by selecting guys who couldn’t begin to compete with the female talent. A more equally stacked deck would have added a lot to the early weeks. I have no quarrel with the outcome, however, and couldn’t have asked for better finalists than winner, Candice Glover, and runner up, Kree Harrisson. Check out Candice’s performance of Somewhere and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

When I was a kid I used to dream of being a doctor. I really thought it would be simple enough: get into college, go to med school, go to residency, then become a doctor! Nothing could have been farther from the truth. It turns out I’ve been in school for EIGHT years and I’m just now getting done. I moved to Dallas for my residency and it’s been a tough transition. I had lived in the same place all throughout med school but now I own a home (I’m going to be here for at least 3 years) and I’m getting settled in. I’ve been doing all the little stuff so far like buying a new couch and going to ElectricCompaniesTexas.net to research utility companies. I don’t know much about Dallas yet because I’ve only lived here for a little while and it’s going to take some time to get settled because I’m at the hospital all the time. These long shifts are killing me but I can’t wait to get done and be a real doctor. I’ve spent so much time and money training for this and I really love medicine. I’m hoping next year to get an internship under this famed dermatologist that works here with me – that would be the cherry on top. My parents have been so supportive of me emotionally and financially – they’re the ones who helped me land the scholarships I needed and my dad floated me the down payment for the house here in Dallas. I really love it here so far and I’m excited to be closer to home again since I was so far away during med school. I really can’t wait to be independent but it’s going to be a few years yet for sure. I’m not a doctor yet and it’s going to take some time to get there, but when I do I know it’s going to feel like the biggest accomplishment!
