What are you doing, my fellow 'non-trad' aspiring physicians?
Oh, you want to know what I'm up to? Well, it's a wild night let me tell you!
I'm sitting at my dining room table wearing 'misery-grey' velour sweat pants with sparkly stars sewn on to the bottom, an oversized sweat shirt, and hair so out of control it rivals Slash and Cousin It.
Reaching over piles of papers, a calculator and various text books , I grab a now cold cup of chamomile tea. YES!!! I am getting crazy with the chamomile. No telling what's going to happen next...
After I finish typing this post I'll go do some yoga stretches for my aching back. Dining room chairs are not exactly ergonomic havens for middle aged women.
Then, I'll probably throw down a protein shake and spinach salad before resuming my studies.
I'm not sure how to wrap up this wild night.... flash cards or practice quiz? So many options....
Well considering the goal of getting into med school inspired a lifestyle change/risk management decision, I quit drinking, period. So, now it's phys and chem studies, maybe a strum a few chords on the guitar between chapters, and get the nose back into the books. If its snowing however, you can bet your ass I'm getting my gear aligned to slay the living **** outta some powder in the morning above beautiful Lake Tahoe. Saturday night, much of the same.
I do enjoy the occassional ginger ale or soda water w/ lemon at the bar while enjoying the a local or passing through bluegrass/blues or whatever band.
Life just isn't as exciting as it used to be (unless it's snowing)
