Fifth term is picking up the pace and life is in full swing. I've been busy, but I love it.... here are a few highlights.
Tuesday: I made from scratch, pumpkin soup and cornbread with my neighbor. We then had family dinner with the roommates. And of course I did the pre-requisite class, small groups, study time, etc.
Wednesday: I managed to buy a new pair of shoes and a cute top to wear to the Hospital. This was in between studying all morning, reviewing 90 questions from Exam Masters and 4 hours of class. I also went for a sunset walk and swim. Not too shabby of a day....
Today: My hospital group was assigned a local GP to follow and I examined a 7 year old, interviewed a young man for his annual work physical and saw textbook anemia in a women with Hb of 5 (don't ask me how she was even walking around). I ran home to change at lunch and on my way stopped to visit my local wine store. I chatted up the owners and staff while picking out 2 bottles of wine for the weekend. I then sprinted to class for 4 hours, followed by powder puff football practice, woo hoo! I think I can manage 3 good hours of study time before I call this day done.
Tomorrow: I have the morning free to study and then my first (mini) test of 5th term. Depending how that goes I'll open the wine or hit the books again. The weekend is almost here and I cannot wait to study without distractions (yes I know I am a med school dork, but I'm okay with that because I have new shoes!)
