A comic by Scutmonkey. Her site is conveniently located in in my Blogroll. Check it! It has an awesome comic strip about being on rotations, and a darn good blog too.
School: See above, this is how I’ve felt this week truing to transcribe/study the Cardiology lectures. Its been brutal and so slow-going. Orthopaedics has been a much more interesting listen. I am now caught up in those classes and only like 2 lectures behind in all the others. As for boards, NO, I have not started studying yet, but like I committed to do in my 2007 Resolutions, I have made a schedule. It conveniently has me starting the self-studying tomorrow 😛 and I am in the process of finding a study group for the weekends when Kaplan is not holding a study session, so I have a month to find takers. Hint.
Friends: I’ve been spending alot of my time with Katie & Peacock attempting to study. Sometimes we are even successful. The rest of the time Katie makes me watch Mr. Show episodes and the Evil Dead movies. Darn that Katie, such a bad influence 😉
Family: Had a chance to call Dad, thought I’d make sure everything was cool and that my PDA expenditure was acceptable. Turns out the check was late b/c Jennifer’s dying of pneumonia (not literally, but almost) and Dad’s been working overtime all week. Ack. Maybe I should check in on the Maine side pretty soon.
Home: I’ve been able to catch up on cleaning the house since we have the 3 day weekend, but the doggies are destroying it again b/c we haven’t been walking them. They’re acting like bickering kids cooped up on a rainy day. When I do let them out, after 1 minute, they are done with this freezing rain shit. A treadmill would be nice about now.
Marriage: I’m a sucker for Reese’s peanut butter hearts.
Finances: Josh is enjoying his new job over at Ruby Tuesday’s. His hours haven’t been great this week since business has been down with the recent ice storm, but no biggie. Thats not the problem. The problem this week is Convo & COMLEX (boards) registrations are coming due. Convo will cost me around $350, and COMLEX $445. I’ll definitely have enough for one, but the other I’ll need to do more reshuffling, or begging on street corners 😉 And before you ask, NO, I didn’t know I needed to register now if I am not taking it until May and definitely didn’t know it cost that much. There goes taking the USMLE too (maybe).
Spirit: Kinda took a hit this week b/c the UAAO table sales has been so incredibly frustrating, not to mention a few Ebay purchases (who doesn’t send the power cords for a PS2??) but the spirit is in general up due to this lovely 4 day weekend. You heard me, 4 days. B/c of the ice storm we got Friday off too.
Health: Great! Katie & I have been working out almost everyday and I’m really feeling the difference, mostly in my butt 😛 I’ve already lost 3 pounds! The diet has been pretty good but I can’t help it if Katie wants to buy me free pizza or take me to Ruby Tuesday’s every now & again. Darn Katie.

Personal Growth: Haven’t quite decided what to read next. I was hoping to switch things up and go for something non-scifi but I haven’t had a chance to head to the library with the snow & all. Course I could also try focusing on getting started with Boards review, maybe?
