Hey, even though we don't have the cutoff anymore, we still need to make new ones.
Some of you all walk in like, 3 weeks.

So the stupid (but nice) sun woke me up 2 hours early this morning and I couldn't go back to sleep. Then worked out. Then went to study pharm. Loss of sleep + pharm = sleep is the pharmakokinetic formula I created.

I'm done with electives on 4/29, but don't actually graduate until 5/17. And then I start on 6/20. I'm thinkin' that free time will go pretty fast. Oh well. 'Tis life.

I managed to sleep through my first earthquake. Probably best that way. Was really small too, so there was no reason for me to wake up. Nap time before Kaplan.

Left: 2 yrs and 3 weeks. Getting closer. Looks much better than 4 yrs.

I must be feeling optimistic right now. Even though biochem is kicking my butt.

Objective for the rest of the day: watch tv, sleep if I happen to, work out, and then go back to bed. Studying this hard makes me really tired.

3.5 days and one test left. Why does it seem the closer I get, the harder it is to do simple things? Like show up at 8 am (not that I'm late, but getting up is harder). Heck my surgery team during third year wanted me there to start pre-rounding at 4a and I'm complaining about 8a. Fourth year has made me soft.

:laugh: so true! I was whining during radiology, which was 9 or 10am to 3, and was still late/anxious to leave alot. I will get my work ethic back for residency, right?

I highly doubt any of you will be lazy when the time comes. What you have is called senioritis. It will happen again probably your last year of residency too. Just like any other school-finishing stage. (Of course I started senioritis last year, but still)

While home my days have been filled with 1.5 hour lunches with friends, 3 hours at the gym and afternoon naps. If this is what retirement is like, SIGN ME UP. :thumbup:

Guys,

I know I'm relatively new to SDN but...

I'm getting so addicted to this website, could my diagnosis be:

Matchitis w/ paradoxical uncompensated senioritis, leading to SDN-itis?

I need to get off my a** and get to the gym!

No more, Zinjanthropus, MSIV and no more white coat. It's over. Let the two months when being a doctor is fun commence (I'm sure it will get old real quick on June 23). Now, just have to handle wearing a big froofy gown in the Florida heat next week.

This is sad...this thread was created a week ago and we haven't finished the first page (not even w/in 1 or 2 posts). All you 4th years are doing what you said you wouldn't do...leaving us slowly. Come back. Please come back!

So this is what you can aspire to as a 4th year near the end...

- wake up at 10am :hardy:

- finally send off the last of the stuff for your residency program

- debate/discuss with the notary for a good ten minutes that while obviously he cannot legally confirm that you will be a good intern (and all that is required on a temporary license permit application), he can attest that the person in the picture attached to the application is in fact the same person standing before him...(sigh)

- have a 2 hour lunch (I'm gonna miss the Asian food in Cali...)

- have a 1 hour nap :sleep:

- be at the gym for 1.5 hours :clap:

- buy new clothes at the outlet center (baby's got some new threads :cool:)

- watch a movie w/ dinner (Charlie Wilson's war :thumbup:)

- drink Portugese wine with dark chocolate :p

- lament about how the increase in prices for staple foods will hurt the poor in developing countries :(

- get excited about how Emory is rockin' :love:

- check email and SDN q15 minutes :D

- hope also that I will recover before orientation (I think of that line from Apocalypse Now..."every day Charlie squats in the bush he gets stronger, every day I'm here I get weaker"...) :scared:
