Gus applied for residency programs today. He is applying to 30 programs, will probably interview at about 10. Most of the programs are regional, in the mid-Atlantic. Some are farther north or farther south. A few are out in the pacific northwest or Midwest. It is stressful, but a difficult stress to explain. It's actually really exciting. It's going to be fascinating to see who is interested in meeting him. It's also nerve wracking to think that this time next year, at the least our lives will be very different and we could even be living somewhere across the country. I try to talk to people about it, but I don't think anyone really understands. All they care about is the moving part. I care about the moving part, too, but it's more complicated than that.
This is one of those situations where it's not even worth getting too worked up about anything because you really just have to take it as it comes.
