What’s up doc??? i can’t wait to see what words of wisdom you dispense after being crowned ‘doctor’. i’m very proud of you for reaching this pinnacle of your journey. take some deep breathes and savor the moment. in lieu of words of wisdom, i instead offer you this silly limerick:
there was a boy named jonathan
who was very cosmopolitan.
now that he’s a doctor
(we should celebrate with lobster!)
he can finally breathe in some oxygen.
Good luck in your recovery from grad school – i look forward to your future successes!
Well deserved! Thanks for showing me around when I was in San Diego!
