Wow-eee - Nobody wears a white coat any more... — LiveJournal
...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
All right, item 1: I have been so busy doing anything but reading LJ or socializing (I had to finish Reality Dysfunction!) that I really can't catch up now.  So drop me a comment, O Best Beloved, and give me the highlights.

Emergency Medicine starts on Wednesday.  I will have tales and ideas and thoughts for you then; for now I am attempting to take three days to find myself once more, to cuddle with my Angel (recovering well from surgery, still sore though), and to write my bleeding personal statement (hey guys?  Anyone with experience want to take a look at it when it's done?) for my residency applications, which I need to do.  I'm terrified that I will miss a step and not get invited for interviews.

Bear with me, O Best Beloved.  I am, after all, only human.

I don't have any experience with personal statements for medical residencies, but if you don't mind, I'd like to take a look at it when you're done :-)

So glad Angel is getting better. We all knew he'd be fine, with the excellent suport and love you provide.

Otherwise, if you happen to be in Sydney in a couple of weeks I'm having a party...

I wish I were going to be in Sydney, I have a dear friend there I'd like to meet - your charming self aside.

Best to your Angel. Luck with ER. And luck with the personal statement: although, no insult intended, given you're applying to Family Practice I'm willing to guess that, given your Boards and grades, virtually every residency program you apply to will extend you an invitation without even bothering to read your personal statement. FP is one of the only residency fields that consistently, year after year, can't find enough good people to fill their seats, and has more and more trouble with each passing year getting Americans to do it. You'll rock and roll them all. :-)

No offence taken, with the Board scores back I'm getting the "you're too smart for FM" bullcrap again :)

well, my only experience comes from writing my own and looking over a friend's; i don't know if US and canadian ones are the same, either.

but i'm sure you'll have no trouble getting interviews. in canada it's hard getting good people for family as well ^__^

Well, what's the last thing you remember me writing about?

Oh, -you- I've been reading every scintillating word.
It's like a crack fix - OMG, ANDREA POSTED - and Matt pokes me and we poke Quin and all that.

Haven't been responding, though you're in my thoughts.

Hahahahaha, I never knew I was so well-loved! *^_^* You're going to give me a big head.
