First day

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

I talked to my study partner this morning. First thing I said to her, “Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.” She told me she was thinking the same thing when she awoke this morning.
Slept in, and went for brunch with my brother and older nephew. After a quick trip to […]

Best day, possibly ever

Friday, May 30th, 2008

May 30, 2008, will go down in my personal history as one of the best days I’ve ever had. I had a zillion things planned for today and things all turned out way better than I could possibly have expected. I woke up early (having been used to doing this for the last week) with […]

Finally done

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

I just got back home from my fellowship exams at the capital. It’s surreal how it’s finally over and then coming home to the mess I had left behind from studying. It’s a strange feeling of being so unbelievably relieved that it is over, and at the same time not wanting to be too happy […]

Final stretch

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Less than 9 days until this entire ordeal is over, and I’m finding myself swinging between excited elation and melancholic defeat. Hormones and migraines and general stressiness really hasn’t helped. I’ve had to resort to Tylenol #1’s to dull the headache enough to do any sort of studying. And there is still so much to […]

Sense of helplessness

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

I’m feeling a sense of discord and helplessness. Here I am 2 weeks until the exam is over, and I’m getting quite frustrated with how things are going.
First off all, there are so many terrible things going on in the world. Iraq and Afghanistan. The controversy over Tibet and the Olympic games. The catastrophes in […]

Random statements

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Just a few things that have popped into my head of late:

I wonder how many neurons I have taken up to remember all this neurology?
My current blister pack of migraine prophylaxis medication finished the day before my exam. It’s like a countdown calendar now.
This constant state of sleep deprivation and exam/fellowship stress has become somewhat […]

Bittersweet

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

It’s a weird feeling. I’m not entirely sure if I’m very hungry, or too full.
To go along with that, life has been sort of that way. On the one hand, it’s Spring, things are growing, the weather is getting nicer. My career plans are coming into place nicely. I’ve got great plans for June-July. But […]

Feel so so bad…

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

Aw… So a friend from work had invited me over to his place for a hockey game watching party, and I said maybe cause I need to study. And well as much as I like the guy and think that might be fun, I absolutely need to study! So I didn’t go. He calls me […]

Was good!

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

See? It absolutely HAD to be a good week. To top off all that stuff, I found out last nite that the One Republic concert we were not going to be able to go to despite having tickets has been postponed again, to a date which I can totally make!
With all the cool stuff going […]
