drunk (slightly) posting here.
it’s been a rough week. or a rough couple of months i guess. and today’s exam was just as bad. and i was sad that i wouldn’t be seeing josh since he was flying out of town for a conference. but i’m SO GLAD i went out with my friends tonight. 🙂 it’s so nice to go out and be normal and most of all, to be free of the pressures/obligations of studying and working and constant evaluation by your residents and attendings.
on my way to the exam this (er, yesterday) morning, the sky was completely overcast and i worried about being caught in a storm without an umbrella. after the exam, we headed to the memorial for the classmate who had passed away earlier this week. by then, the sky was sunny and clear, and it took a moment to recall the clouds that had been so foreboding just a few hours earlier. the ceremony was beautiful and sad. and of course, i had trouble keeping my eyes dry.
i slept a few hours in the afternoon, got up in time to watch grey’s anatomy, and then i had dinner at a friend’s prior to hitting the club/lounge.
all in all, it was one of the first days in a long while that i’ve felt human, and not just a grumpy, sleep-deprived hospital robot.
