Wednesday September 1: Day 11 on Paros

Is it really September already?  My goodness.

Move-in for the freshman back home started yesterday.  A lot of my friends are CAs (both new CAs and returners) so resident move-in brings the start of a new chapter for them.  I’ve been thinking about them and what they’re going through a lot lately—the long hours of training, the work that comes with prepping for residents, and also the combined excitement and nervousness of finally meeting residents.  I didn’t think I’d say this, but I miss t-hall and being a CA.  Yes, it was a lot of work and long hours, but it also was a lot of fun and brought some incredible people into my life. 

Best of luck to all of you during these crucial first 6 weeks.  Have faith in yourselves and your abilities (I certainly have faith in you!)—you will be amazing CAs (and JCs)!
