Posts tagged thank you

Today, this blog reached the 50,000 mark. I wanted to take a moment to thank every follower who has continued to read and to support this blog over the years. I have not had a chance to invest myself fully in writing thoughtful posts over the past few weeks due to the impending deadline for my residency application. I really appreciate the support and overwhelmingly positive feedback during this time. 
Once everything settles down, I will try to resume my posting as previous. Until then, I apologize for the delays and downtime. Thank you all again for your readership, your amazing energy, and your incredible support.

Medical State of Mind Turns Three.
It feels like almost yesterday that I was celebrating the second birthday for the Medical State of Mind. The days sure have flown by at a blazing pace! Here now near the end of my third year, I would like to address you, the reader, and thank you for joining me through this past year.
It has been a year unlike any other I have ever had. There have been tremendous struggles along the way. I have had great moments of success and even greater moments of failure. It has been a year where I have learned about myself, about life, and about death. 
Through all of this, I have tried to document my journey as best as I can, between the bites of food and the moments between books. Through all of this, you have continued to read, to ask, and to comment on my journey. You have been there every step of the way. 
I thank you all very much for that.
If you are willing to come this far, I hope you are willing to come a little further. There is still one last leg to this journey. I hope you are all ready to join me for another year of reflections, stories, and commentaries on the life of a medical student.
Thank you all very much for your continued readership.

To the readers and followers,
Third year is slowly drawing to a close. It has been an incredible year filled with excitement and hardship, with joy and sorrow, with life and death. It has been a year filled with challenging days and busy nights. It has been a year that has time and time again made me reconsider and reaffirm my decision to pursue medicine. 
Through all of this and the scattered, speckled entries of this blog, you have continued to follow, to read, and to comment. 
Today I reach another milestone, one that I would never have thought possible when I first began writing this blog. 
Over these last few months, it has been a pleasure to be able to share this journey with all of you. From my first reader to the last, thank you all for your continued support and readership. You have continued to be a source of inspiration and one that has helped me to reflect on and to marvel at what medicine and humanity can achieve.

To the Readers,

This blog has always been an outlet for me. It offers me a moment of clarity to gather myself and my thoughts. Though I do my best to check the emotions at the door and keep what I write honest but professional, feelings are not a breed to be tamed.

Thank you very much to those of you who offered words of support in light of my recent post. I am very grateful for your kindness in this difficult time. A lot of issues are coming to a head, from exams and rotations, to career and family planning. It is a strange place to be in this journey.

This, I am sure, will pass. 

Thanks again to everyone for your continued support and patience. I look forward to sharing more stories as circumstances allow. 

Sincerely,
Tom of the Medical State of Mind

My Most Sincere Gratitude

To the readers,

Thank you so much for being a part of this intimate and very happy moment with both of us. I would like to also thank you all for your support and encouragement of Tom’s Tumblr.  

As much as Tom’s Medical State of Mind might have inspired your dreams and aspirations, your words have had a similar if not bigger impact on Tom and I thank every one of you for being there for him on his journey and ours together.

Last but not least, I wish all of you a happy new year and the very best for everyone. :)

Sincerely,
"His Fiancée" 

Connected. 
Medicine is no walk in the park. Though I have made my best efforts to keep this blog updated as regularly as the last two years, it has been a challenge to match the original pace I had set for myself.
Despite this however, you, the followers and readers of this blog have continued to visit, ask questions, and leave comments. Your participation and readership have continued to drive this blog forward. For that, you have my gratitude and thanks.
As 2012 draws to a close, I want to ask everyone what you would like to see different for the upcoming year. Your feedback and suggestions are much appreciated.
Thank you again for your continued support.

Celebrating Two Years of Writing.
Today is the second birthday for the Medical State of Mind. We have come so far and have so much further to go! Luckily, we are half way through this journey and only two years remain before I graduate. I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the continued support and readership. 
While this blog’s description may say that it is about my personal journey through medical school and beyond, what it does not say is that it is a shared journey. It is a shared journey with people, with readers, with you. 
The journey within may be influenced by my training, but my journey without has been influenced by this community. You have asked me questions that challenged me, that forced me to look inwards, and made me better understand myself. You have inspired me to dream, to hope, to feel. You have willed this blog to succeed, something I could never have done without you.
Thank you for joining me on this journey of medicine.

20,000 Milestone.
It took a year and a half for this blog to reach 10,000; it only took six months to reach 20,000. To everyone who has made it possible, thank you for your readership and your dedication. Since I have already given my thanks very recently, I will not go on ad nauseum.
For the 10,000 milestone, I had made a video (which unfortunately I had to take down). I will think of something special to do for this milestone over the weekend. You can also leave your ideas down in the comments below. 
Thanks again for all of your support and until next time, take care.

Above the fold.
This afternoon, I checked into Tumblr to find a spike of activity on my dashboard. I have learned through my own stumbling and by word of mouth that my recent feature of Steven McGaughey's the Gastric Subway has been featured on the Tumblr Radar. 
I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for taking interest in the blog, to the staff at Tumblr for the feature, and last but not least to Steven McGaughey, who kindly allowed me to post his art on here. Please do check out his other works on his blog and on his website.
To all of the new followers, welcome to the blog. I hope you enjoy what you see and what you read. Expect more updates as I continue this journey. Thanks again for your interest and take care.
