Every day, it gets a little more real. The fact that in just over a year, I’ll be a doctor.
Some moments, that timeline feels more concrete than others. Like today, when I logged in for the first time to my new best friend ERAS, the Electronic Residency Application Service.
I’m sure I will grow to loathe the purple, orange, and green color scheme of my ERAS dashboard, given how much time I will spend on this website. (And really? Purple, orange, and green? That’s a little much, isn’t it?)
But today, the colors seemed festive and celebratory. And so I am celebrating.
