Lately you remind me of the person Robert Hass describes in his poem "Time and Materials": "someone falling down
and getting up and running and falling and getting up." I'm sending you my compassion for the times you fall down, and my admiration for the times you get up, and my excitement for the times you run. It has probably become clear to you by now that the falling down isn't a shameful thing to be cursed, but rather is an instrumental part of the
learning process that is teaching you marvelous secrets about getting back up and running.
|the first day of my pediatrics clerkship starts tomorrow. oh my!|
|so i'm studying for Step 1 right now. it's not going to so great. i feel like i don't know anything and answering the kaplan question reinforces this fact/feeling. argh. :( i have less than a month left. i have to start memorizing better. more high yield stuff. all this reading is just leaking out of my head again the next morning. |
but my horoscope for this week:
"The joke goes like this: "Why is a math book so sad? Because it has so many problems." But of course that's a
distortion of the truth. In fact, the math book loves its problems. Its problems are its reason for being. Besides that, all of its problems are interesting challenges, not frustrating curses. Best of all, every problem has a definite answer, and all the answers are provided in the back of the book. Now here's the most excellent news of all, Cancerian: I think you'll be like a math book in the coming weeks."
i woke up at 9:06 am because i received a reminder text to take my umbrella out today. lecture started at 9am. already, a bad morning. i rushed to class, and went to two lectures. nearly forgot my coat.
today in our bedside diagnosis i was just so tired and i just wasn't conducting a good interview and not asking any questions. after, my classmate had a really good interview and he was like, "you, great interview... YOU, not so good interview." yeah, yeah.
sigh. just one of those days.
|i picked a date to take Step 1!!!|
the big day is going to be Monday, June 8th. i'm telling everyone so i don't chicken out at the last minute and try to push it back.
then i'm planning a vacation to somewhere in europe... maybe spain or france....
