Reverb 11, Day 1 – One Word

What is Reverb11?

(post written 12/10/11 and Backdated)

One Word – Encapsulate the year 2011 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2012 for you?   (If you did Reverb10 then bonus points for also re-posting your 2011 word from last year along with how you feel about that in retrospect.)

2010 was Transit. I hoped 2011 would be Affirmation, and it did live up to that somewhat (I am certainly far more sure, and happily so, about medicine as my future career/profession), but I think a better word would be Adjustment. I’ve made a lot of changes in my life this year, and I’m still adjusting to them. I moved to a new apartment in August. I seriously started working on the whole car + driving thing. I started my rotations in the hospital and I’m adjusting to my role as medical student, as an actual student doctor doing/pretending to do doctor type things in the hospital. I’m even in a whole new age bracket, now that I’ve turned 25.

What word would I like to capture 2012? Easy. I would love 2012 to be easy. Deciding what type of doctor I want to be. Deciding where I want to apply. Getting interview invitations. Taking the Step 2 exam. Easy is almost certainly not going to be anywhere near the top list of words to describe 2012, but a girl can dream!
