There should have been bells or donuts. I should have felt happy or sad. But as I left the emergency department of this small BC town today, I threw my scrubs in the blue laundry bag, and my stethoscope in my shoulder bag, and the automatic doors opened in front of me and closed behind me, and that was that.
Maybe its the weight of our upcoming exam. Maybe I’m saving my excitement for graduation in a few weeks. Maybe I just like to hold special things very close to me so that I can hold them longer. This is all surreal.
“Cause 20 years have come and gone
And i cant remember half the things ive done
Or who i was to bring me here today
And i want a photograph
Of every month ive ever had
Cause they go so fast and i just want one to stay
But it doesnt work that way”
