The Reality of Acceptance

Back to the waiting game. Checking the Student Doctor Network forum every day, every hour. Finally on a Friday evening at 8:00 p.m. I looked at my email and there it was, the school had sent me an email. After two long years of applying and waiting I finally received an acceptance to the University of Saint Augustin-ATX. I erupted with joy. After calling family and friends letting them know the good news it suddenly hit me; I have to move over 1,200 miles away in just a couple of months. I had been so wrapped up in the thought of going to graduate school the reality of actually going had never hit me.  I did not realize how much it would cost to move and get settled in a new state. The next few months blazed by. Getting packed was over whelming and tiring. Perhaps if I was only packing for myself it would not have been too bad but it was also packing for my wife and our two kids.  We made the long haul trip in two days and arrived in the great city of Austin, Texas.
