Like finishing anything meaningful, graduating residency is bittersweet. The learning curve is steep. There is an appreciation for every patient encounter. These days I find that every article or conversation regarding medical school and residency training has a negative and discouraging theme. Topics of discussion often include the long years and cost of training to the loss of physician autonomy within the healthcare system. Some age old issues continue to be debated, such as the fairness of the match in deciding the location of your job to the safety of a hour or longer work shift for interns and residents alike. Even during a lighter rotation, clinic or elective block, there are scheduled weekend shifts in order to give other residents working in the inpatient setting a day off. Having knowledge of the patient and his care is one of the reasons the shifts in residency are so long, in order to minimize hand offs between residents thus decreasing potential mistakes.

There is a term coined by medical residents known as the Golden Weekend. It refers to a weekend when a resident is not on call and where you are not expected to be working. A weekend where you get Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday off. In other words, a Golden weekend is just a regular weekend, one which most people experience four to five times a month whereas for a resident it happens maybe once a month.
But we Always had time for each other. When I think about it now it sounds absolutely mental and there is no way I would do it again. If it is even possible, would it strengthen or weaken their ability to develop a personal relationship with their Heavenly Father. And even then it will put Huge stress on it and on you for the rest of your life. During "Netflix and chill" the other night, I noticed there was a documentary about mormons. As ex-mormons, can anyone here offer some insight about this girl, her religion, and what exactly I may be getting myself into if I continue dating her. I am a very independent person socially so I often do not think to call people just because I am fine doing things myself. It's a great idea to know where you stand so that you'll be prepared when this comes up in conversation. That sentence strikes me as rather bizarre--it seems to be alluding to a causal link between academics and being "emotionally immature," as you put it.
This is wonderful and in accordance with the desires of a loving Father in Heaven, but it can turn a marriage on its ear, if the spouse is unprepared. Well, there were other circumstances that made it especially unique and One thing in your favor is the fact that she is in her late 20s by Mormon standards she is already an old maidhopefully she and her family will just want her to have love and not put the pressure on converting you, but there are countless stories of dudes getting dumped on here because ultimately they chose the church. Sorry, you can't reply to this topic. Being married and raising a family can be very difficult if the two of you disagree about important issues like religion.
