I have that blouse in teal and am planning to pair it with a charcoal pencil skirt and a skinny black belt. As for shoes, I decided to pick up another pair of the AT Perfect Leather Pump in black, since I currently don't have any black pumps. I'm normally a size 5.5/6, but these pumps fit me perfectly in size 5... and I seriously love them!
It's basically going to look just like this outfit I posted before, except in different colors with an added white coat:
Since it is my 100th post after all, I figured I should share a bit more about myself and what I do. I'm currently about halfway through a medical residency. For those who are not familiar with the US medical education system, it consists of 4 years of college and 4 years of medical school. After finishing those 8 years, even though you're technically a "doctor", you can't really practice (or know how to) until you complete a residency in the field of your choice. Residencies range from 3 to 7 years depending on the specialty, and the first year of residency is traditionally known as internship.
I'm doing my residency in radiology, which is a specialty with limited patient contact. Radiologists are the ones who interpret or "read" all the imaging studies like CT, MRI, X-ray, ultrasound, and so on that other doctors order. It's mostly a desk job, but I do see patients when I'm doing procedures like lumbar punctures, barium studies, or ultrasound-guided biopsies or drainage. This is where I spend most of my time when at work or on call... a dark room with the 4 basic essentials to be a radiologist:
It's a little ironic that I actually celebrated never having to write another literary analysis essay again when I graduated college.... because I ended up basically writing reports for a living!
I hope you enjoyed learning about one of the lesser known specialties of radiology! In any case, I'm giving my big presentation next Friday and only have a grand total of 8 slides so far, so I'll likely need to put blogging on the back burner for a bit to focus. It's a pretty formal presentation and I'm dreading the public speaking part since I still get super nervous, so please share any tips if you have them! :)
