...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
A few thoughts...
Went to bed last night around 0200-0230. Way too late for having to leave at 0900 this morning. A bit too early to catch a dear friend of mine who peeked on, then posted, withdrawing from conversation. I wish now I'd stayed up.

NYE quotes are half-typed. Someone reminded me about the 8 computer simulations in anaesthesia that I need to be doing before Tuesday, and the exam I haven't studied for again, so this afternoon after we get back from family Christmas I'll be doing those. And maybe reading, although I'm tempted to go straight to Pearls as this book is too damned long for me to have procrastinated it like I did.

This year, O Best Beloved, I want to get back in shape, or at least use my Curves membership semi-regularly; apply Mike's two-hour rule to studying (every night, sit down and do nothing but study for two hours, then go live your life) with a half-hour, then break modification where necessary to keep me focussed; and keep the credit cards where they are after spending almost my entire loan check clearing them, so that my summer loan will pay for a trip to Hawaii.

This year I want to have a life again by fall.

That's actually a great plan (the two-hour rule plan). I think it's much better than studying on and off throughout the day and/or becoming distracted in the middle of studying (come on, we all suffer from ADD the minute a med textbook is opened).

If only I could adhere to the two-hour rule plan :-)

Is it really possible to have a life and be in med school? Did you ever consider choosing a med school close to your significant other...just cause of that reason?

There's only one med school in Indiana, and it's one of the best in the nation really, so that's the one I chose. I picked a center campus where we live rather than the main campus so that I could be with my husband as much as possible.
