Tools of the Trade

Remember how, at the beginning of 2015, I wrote about changing jobs and going back to school? Well, the going back to school part is finally happening. It's been a long process as I had to wait to get settled in my new job and for there to be enough staff physicians to free up enough time. Then I had to apply and wait for the final confirmation, which was last week.

Don't get me wrong. I love being a doctor. But it has become clear over the years that life has more to offer. People develop additional interests and passions. Sometimes people change gears entirely. I almost did that but then in my new job I was rejuvenated and reminded of what I love about practicing medicine. Connecting with people, bringing comfort, reassurance and care. Working with talented people who share these priorities in a supportive environment that allows for one's personal and professional lives to thrive. Where I am now provides all that, giving me time to finally do this thing for me:

I am enrolled in the Certificate Pastry Program at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. Orientation is in two weeks and classes start shortly after.

Today was my uniform fitting and I brought home almost all of the equipment. My coats and chef knife will come later but this is the bulk of it. As soon as I have the full uniform I will post a photo. For now, this will have to do.
