Just leaving work to head home for a quick nap before coming right back for my night shift. Today was a longer day than usual because my Program Director asked me to assist in his presentation on Diversity, Inclusion, and Respect for the incoming interns. Two things of note: 1. I'm glad I work at a place that puts such conversations at the forefront. One always runs the risk of sounding trite but, if there aren't platforms set to discuss privilege, race, and LGBTQ issues, these topics never see the light of day; 2. I can't believe the new interns are here! This year has flown remarkably fast. There has been so much good and bad change but I stand a stronger (and hopefully better) person than I was this time last year. Looking forward to more growth and learning in my 2nd year of residency. And, now, this slightly delirious intern is headed to bed. Wishing you all a wonderful, non-manic Monday! . . . . . .
