Reflections of 2009 - A Blog Review

As per Srav's reminder and instructions- Take the first line(s) of your first blog entry of each month and presto:

Well, I'm not exactly ready to go. The problem is my bags are OVER packed. 

So, I cannot sleep again... I don't know if it was the 2 hour nap after lecture (thank you migraine and Relpax for that!), the cup of coffee at 8pm or the fact that I'm feeling a little guilty for the amount (or lack thereof) of studying I accomplished today but here it is, after 2am and I am wide awake. 

I know I haven't posted lately, and I'm sorry... I'm going to use the excuse of midterms. That and I'm on island time... 

[Somewhere Over the Rainbow...]...blue birds fly? Maybe but not in Grenada. Instead we've got cows, geckos and toads!

My grandmother just passed away. I have been wearing her pearl earrings since I learned that she decided to leave the hospital on Tuesday. 

Term One ended. I did finish all four books and Fox's memoir is worth the read.

If you are in medicine then you  know that July 1st means the new residents have started working. 

I am back! I made it despite a bit of a layover in Trinidad and now that I am here I'm feeling quite unmotivated... maybe I did a little too much this summer, but I still have a few days before classes begin to sleep in, get settled, enjoy Spicemas, go to the beach, etc. so it should be okay.

So, one of my goals for term 2 was to attend a health fair. And I went to my first today. It was amazing. 

[Happy. Lucky. Loved.] Just a few words to describe my mood at the moment.

So, I did it. I went on my first Hash. 

There is nothing left to do but study.

So, that pretty much sums up year one of medical school and 2009. Other stuff that didn't make the blog but are also important and worth noting... I celebrated my one year anniversary to the love of my life (my constant support and the person I cannot imagine being without.) My classmates are some amazing people and among them I made new friends for life. I was reminded of how lucky I am to have such a wonderful loving and supportive family. Going to medical school in another country is hard. But medicine is not an easy field and if anything SGU and Grenada have prepared me for whatever may come my way. I survived year one of medical school and have no regrets, so no looking back- Happy New Year and Welcome 2010! Wishing my readers and everyone the best this coming year.
