There are only six more lectures, five case studies/discussions, one lab quiz, and two more exams that stand in the way of this term being complete, and I am counting down the days until next Friday at noon! After I complete the last exam that day, I will get to enjoy a worry-free, one week vacation where I can just unwind and not have to think about anything. Unfortunately, my daughter’s spring break isn’t until much later, so I probably won’t be taking any trips, but I will openly welcome a week full of sleeping and watching Netflix all day :-)
Earlier this week, I was feeling pretty down about not being able to celebrate Mardi Gras (ie not having a three-day break) for the first time in about ten years, but since classes were cancelled on Tuesday, I got the chance to stay home and relax anyway. It had rained the night before and the morning temperatures were below freezing, so there was no way I was going to go out and risk running into black ice on the road. Instead, I slept in, made my daughter chocolate chip pancakes, did some pleasure reading, and attempted to update my blog, but freaked out when it disappeared on me for a few seconds. For that reason, I’ll wait until one night during my break to update and hopefully make things a bit easier to find. Right now, I am about to get back on the study grind so that I can enjoy a little “Shonda Land” break tonight, but I wanted to make sure I didn’t get too busy that I missed out on my weekly post goal. Oh, and for all my pre-meds and fellow med students, don’t forget to file your taxes and complete your FAFSA if you haven’t done so already!
