They do have chipper as a mood!
Please don't ask me why I'm chipper. I'm sure if you asked me to analyze it, I would find out that I really am not so. My ankle hurts. My non-existant ab muscles hurt. I spent all afternoon hanging around a tiny office with 5 other doctors, so I could exam 2 patients. (So. Painfully. Boring.)
Yep, started a new rotation, pediatrics, which I have been excited for, but stuck in clinic has kinda sapped me of the glee. I was looking forward to doing well baby checks and looking into kid's stuffy noses, but I can't stand just sitting around in a too-small room and changing attendings every half day!
Thankfully, this does not count towards evaluations. And it should get better. I hope it gets better.
Only three more rotations and I'll be done with third year!
Only three more rotations and I'm done with third year. When you really think about it, it's scary. I went to a med school party this weekend, where I mingled with so many of my classmates that I haven't seem in months. And it hit me. In just a year and a bit, we'll be separating and spreading across the country... These close friendships and associations will end. I can't stop it, and even though it's so far in the future, that black dread is taking over residence in my stomach.
Hey, come back here chipper feeling!
No, things are good. Really. I just won't let myself think how miserable my life is going to be when Chris and I are on opposite coasts. :(
I am such a nerd. No, really, it's true. How did I spend my evening? My wonderful evening free of responsibility? Not to mention Valentine's Day?? Reading articles from the latest Grand Rounds
. I discovered this a couple of weeks ago, and I have to admit, when I read these blogs, written by actual doctors talking about real patient encounters, or just the science behind our bodies (they've figured out the genetics of why people have different sleep habits??? how cool is that!) I get so excited. Medicine is definitely my calling. Marissa, you should check some of it out--it's written for the layman, and might give you an idea of the field.
Is tomorrow a new episode of GG? I haven't seen the previous two yet (oops), but I still plan to and would like to tape it if it is.
And speaking of GG, can I do a bit of shameless plugging
? Of course, ff.net messed up half of my formating (they're taking out commas before quotation marks now!) and I'm not in the mood to go back and change it by hand, so believe me, it really doesn't have nearly the number of errors in RL.
I've had to go through and make all most of my journal friends only. I had been planning on it, but I got friended by a rather, um, unsuitable person. And I really don't need stalkers. ;) Unless, of course, you guys want to stalk me, and if that's the excuse it takes you to come out and visit me, then by all means, I give you my blessing.
Geez, after this randomness, you're going to be begging me not to keep my promises!
*hugs* to flist.
