Match Week

Monday, March 12, 2012

I have been kind of MIA from my blog lately because the only thing I can think about is Match Day this Friday. For anyone who isn't familiar with Match Day, my (I'm sure very untechnical) explanation is that it's the day the 4th year medical students across the country find out where they will be doing their residency. Today (at noon) med students received an email letting them know if they matched, but we won't know where until Friday. There are a few specialties whose match results are released earlier, like ophthalmology which I mentioned here that my hubby is going into and matched in January. (Side note - I'm also pretty sure I spelled ophthalmology wrong in that post...oops. I suppose the correct spelling of your spouse's career is one of those important things you should probably know...)

While we were incredibly excited back in January to find out Nicholas matched into an ophtho residency in Brooklyn, we've had to wait to find out where he matched for his intern year (the first year of residency aka where we will be moving in three months)! We are, of course, hoping it will be Brooklyn so we can move there right away - but there is a chance we may be somewhere else for a year first! Needless to say it has been DRIVING ME CRAZY. I feel like I can't move forward or start really getting myself (and all our stuff) prepared to move.

In the meantime - how pretty is this?!

I could make up some crazy reason to tie it into my post, but really I just don't like posts without pictures and I fell in love with this when I saw it on Pinterest a couple weeks ago.


  1. Good luck! Can't wait to hear the news. :)

  2. My husband's match day was almost 10 years ago. It feels like yesterday. I'm sure you're going to all of the festivities. It is amazing. Being in that room as they handed each student the evnelope which would set the course of the future was truly amazing. Have a wonderful time, and I'm pulling for you to head to Brooklyn!
