In twenty minutes I take my Radiology final exam. I have not even opened the book in two weeks. I have been, however, to every lecture and stayed awake, if sometimes I paid more attention to Solitaire than the screen. I am not afraid.
For today: After the exam, I plan to retire to a comfortable couch in the student lounge, there to read about endocrine function and take another 180-question exam from my NMS book. If I accomplish these two things with an improvement in my score, I will be satisfied with the day's work. The reproducibility of the NMS scores is stunning, thus far.
I scheduled this dinner meeting on the last day of my clerkship, so at 1800 I will meet up with a wonderful girl who worked with me in the Urgent Care Pediatrics Clinic and our faculty sponsor and begin to hash out the details of putting the Family Medicine Student Interest Group back on the map. I have a wonderful resource in the AAFP's Virtual FMIG, and I intend to use it. After I study this afternoon, I will do some pencil-and-paper outlining for the group. I want to be part of a SIG. If that means I have to help organize and run it, then I have to help organize and run it.
After dinner, I go home to Fort Wayne, where I will spend the next month cramming for the USMLE Step II, hopefully doing some parties and maybe volunteer work, going to Curves (I am so bad, I don't do anything, and I feel ten thousand times better when I work out), and attending conferences.
Oh, and playing World of Warcraft.
I should have time to write in all of that, so I'll see about catching up on my backlog of writing suggestions. You still have time to put in a request either here or here.
This month of vacation will be the first since third-year started. It will, in fact, be the first since second-year started, really, since I spent two of my four weeks between second and third year panicking about the Boards. And I don't know what I'm going to do with my time. Organize, I guess.
clipdude congratulated me with a great thumbs-up userpic. I don't have very many happy userpics. I'm soliciting ideas, as well as suggestions - I need a new White Coat icon for doctory stories before I get into my Medicine Sub-I in August. The old one has about a foot and a half too much hair.
And welcome to aliera. Read the old posts, they're much more interesting.
