anyone else ruminating? maybe i'll just drink until the 15th

I've started going into the hospital really late. I get there after the attending....and I leave the hospital without doing my consults...the residents will do it....I can't even open a freakin medical book anymore....
 

Charge!

On Neuro servic right now I think I am the one who needs to have a MMSE done on them :p Seriously, I have ABSOLUTELY no motivation to study, now only if I convey this to my OVERLY eager neurology attending ;)

Hmm.. but I thought the wait is either going to kill you or you will drink yourself to Wernicke-Korsakoff by match date? :D

AAAARRGGHHH!!!! The match is over, somewhere there is a computer with all of our results stored in its RAM, and for some unknown reason we have to wait 64 hours to find out. Why, why??

I guess there's no choice but to go back to ignoring what's going on for the moment so I can actually do something productive, and hopefully that will last for the next 60 hours or so, when I plan to get drunk. Then I'll probably stay at least pleasantly tipsy for the next 10 hours. The question is, will I drink more or less if I match at #1 vs #10? Hmmm...

(Ha! The above sounds like repression followed by more repression facillitated by etOH... any psych people read this forum?)

You know, I never thought of that... I think both will be equal for quite obviously different reasons. Good luck my friends! There will be a silent toast to all the unknown SDN colleagues who suffered with me come Thursday... probably followed by unnecessarily loud, slurred toasts with the ol classmates.

Good question ....just like "tears of joy", "tears of sorrow" OR "tears of resignation"?

I'm pretty sure I'll match within my top 4 (actually top 1a-1d; unless I was lied to) but I'll see what my reaction will be at 1a versus 1d.
Congratulations and good luck people. Looks from the list of unfilled positions that this was a very competitive year for IM categorical.
