Updates of Recent...

This past week I had more time off yet again. I can't say I was overly thrilled about. I know...what right do I have to complain about having time off. But such is the case, I had very little to do besides laundry, cleaning, vacuuming, and other mundane thrilling tasks. The thing about having time off is that most of my friends and acquaintances did not have said time off. So in essence I muddled about the house, studying for an upcoming board exam a bit less than I probably should have, watching The West Wing on Netflix a bit more than I should have, and went to the museum once or twice. It didn't help that this past week the weather was bloody awful. It rained pretty much every day for a solid week, culminating with Friday (in April) where it literally snowed all day. Thankfully it didn't stick, but as I was driving home from a friend's place visibility was noticeably diminished it was snowing so hard. Also, said friend lives well away from the lake, while I live right on it, so the nature of the snow was quite different after having traversed some five miles back to my apartment. While I entered my car with giant gloppy snow flakes, I exited my car and walked half a block being pelted with about eighteen septillion little bits of ice. Did I mention the wind was blowing about 20mph??? My face felt like I'd been sand blasted.

Back to boredom, I have to work myself into a study mode, which I'm getting better at I must concede. But there were times when the last thing I want to look at is another bit of nephrology!!

My Renal elective at Chicago Memorial Hospital starts tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it. I may eat these words soon, but I hope I spend more time at the hospital than I did during Cardiology. Sitting around the house all day long is a recipe for teeth-coutning boredom and unnecessary Calorie consumption (yes I capitalized that for a reason, look it up!!).

I've confirmed what I've suspected over this past year--that I enjoy being busy. I typically don't mind working long hours as long as I'm actually doing something. Sitting around counting my teeth doesn't really do much for me.
