To classify: I am a Breast Cancer and an Oncoplastic Surgeon.
To justify: I love it
Yes I love my job. I have been working for close to two years now and as I was discussing with my best friend, who is a child psyhicatrist we both realized that it took a lot of hard work, memorizing, test taking, physical labor, and training to get where we are. But learning things related directly to the medical aspects of our jobs was relatively easy. It was all the other aspects of becoming smart, always classy, usually organized, typically fun-loving, mostly fashionable, generally well behaved, occasionally aggressive, sometimes sassy, rarely grumpy and never untrustworthy professional women that was hard.
We have both been blessed with very loving and caring families who gave it all they had to make our dreams come true, teach us and equip us with knowledge and morals to handle ourselves. And not to seem petty, but we had no real role models of women who were in the professional field that we could reach out when faced with issues that a woman would have.
Thus came the idea for the blog. It is mostly our attempt to share our life outside of medicine, some lessons we have learned, are learning and planning to someday learn while we continue to work in our day jobs. As we begin this journey we also request and encourage input from fellow bloggers and look forward to the adventures we will all have.
P.S: The photo was taken on our graduation night from residency together and seemed perfect for this beginning. Account of the night to follow in a future blog.
