The past week has been absolutely crazy, but soooo much fun!!!! A few months ago I got some really good tickets to see The Weeknd, and since my sister loves his music just as much as I do, she jumped at the opportunity to come to town and see him with me. The only catch was she had to stay the entire week and bring my daughter back with her to my parents’ house since I have exams this week and the little one doesn’t have school. She didn’t put up much of a fight on that one though, and it was great having her here. It really is amazing how much my daughter leaves me alone when my sister is around, and I really enjoyed having her here. I’m currently trying to convince her to come live with me (free babysitting!!!!), but she absolutely hates the Atlanta traffic, and won’t budge :-( Anyway, the concert was great and I included my favorite pictures at the end of this post :-)
|Embracing My Inner Princess Leia|
On Thursday, I went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens and I took it as an opportunity to embrace my inner Princess Leia. I think I pulled it off very well….What do you think? Lol The movie was great, and I won’t ruin it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, but I highly recommend it. After that, I locked myself in my room for the entire weekend and my sister took the little one out of town so I could focus. It definitely paid off, because today I received a great grade on my endocrine exam despite all the fun I had last week.
|The Med School Study Grind!|
In addition to having a great exam today, I also found out where I will be next year for clinical rotations! This was something that was stressing me out, so I am happy that I finally know. I’m even more excited that I got my first choice, which was the Northeast Metro Atlanta area, and I don’t have to move!!!! Rotation spots were done by way of a lottery, and I was so worried that I would have to find a new place, have my daughter change schools, and figure out how I would handle being on call next year and not knowing anyone in the area who could swing by and help when needed. I was also stressing about moving expenses (which the school does not provide) and the fact that I would most likely have to handle all of this around the same time I take my board exams. It literally feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders! This was something that I knew I had no control over, so I just prayed about it and put it all in God’s hands and it worked out perfectly. I know I would have made the best of anywhere I was assigned, but this definitely makes life a lot easier for me, and my daughter was really happy about the news as well.
|6 Months Away from My Medical Board Exams!|
But anyway, that’s about it for me. I have a small exam tomorrow, and then I’ll be officially free!!!! I started my board study schedule two weeks ago though, so I’ll be staying on top of my questions throughout the break. I am now 166 days away from my first exam date, and I’m not taking any chances with these exams! I’ll try to do another post before I drive to my parents’ house later this week, but if not, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and overall Happy Holidays!
