One Big Happy

I watched Grey's Anatomy for the first time a few weeks ago. Dramatically intense, medically underwhelming, but I enjoyed it.

The one thing the show's writers do get correct is the camaraderie between the residents. My class really is like a big family. You are there to support each other, you stay late to help someone out, you do shifts to get someone out of a jam. Sure, you get annoyed with each other (you do spend 3o hours at a time with some of these fools). Sure, you grumble when someone asks you to cover his clinic. But, in the end, I've gone through highs and lows, exhilarating diagnoses and gruesome deaths with these people. We're tied together by the experiences we've lived through -- experiences most people can never dream of.
