Sheer laziness, care of a Demanding Ward Month. Note the capitals. Demanding in the way that I am HUSTLING in order to not break the 80 hour rule, in a program that is pretty darn good about not giving us more than 320 hours' worth of work to do in a month.
So yes, busy times.
New house! Out in the burbs. Longer commute, but I have a backyard. And flower beds. And a functional kitchen. All of these are extremely important to maintaining my sanity.
Still married! To a saintly, patient husband doing his own share of studying these days - taking the final EMT certification here soon! It is awesome watching him take to complex acid/base questions and trauma scenarios like a pro. I like to think I helped in some small way as my blathering about medical stuff for the last three years primed him to learn the material. :)
Almost Not An Intern! Less than 40 days until the end of this year, and my turn to be an upper level. The thought than in 2 months, instead of BEING an intern, I will HAVE interns is.... a little crazy, but also very cool.
So all that said and done, here's my laziness. I have 6 excellent entries written, if not typed (2 all-day lectures) so while those percolate.
ASK AN INTERN
Questions about matching, residency, or the occasionally spirit-sucking year that is internship? Ask me about the best, the worst, the weirdest, anything you want!
I'm bad about responding to comments as I inevitably forget to turn on email monitoring and thus find questions months later, but I'll do my best to post questions to anything you want to ask.
