quick hits

-medicine is over! glad for a breather, sad it's over. i really enjoyed the medicine clerkship. it's my top contender for residency next to pediatrics.

-currently on "scholar's week" this week. i'm following a hem/onc (blood/cancer) doctor around. it's been ok so far. best thing about it: we meet at 9am. holycowthankyouJesus.

-henry took me to chattanooga, tn this past weekend for a quick getaway. we actually went up there around this time last year as well, and it was so much fun i got him to take me back. there are tons of neat things to do there. this time, we went to see ruby falls, rock city gardens, and the chattanooga market. we also found an amazing chinese buffet and a freaking huge mall. it was so nice to get out of town, if only 2 hours northward.

-got to have dinner with anjali, sarah, and chara last night, some of my classmates who are doing their 3rd year in tuscaloosa. what a treat. i miss them bunches.

-in love with the gorgeous fall weather we are getting here in birmingham. hoping it lasts longer than the usual 2 weeks. :-P

-got my surgery schedule a few days ago. ::has a cow:: so we have lectures scheduled for 6:30am. that's insanity. i'm going to have to start abusing caffeine or something. i will do 3 weeks of vascular surgery, take 3 nights of trauma surgery call, do 2 weeks of transplant surgery, then 3 weeks of general surgery at children's. i'm most excited about my time at children's - although i've been told by a classmate who just got off that rotation that you have to arrive at 4am. ::gulps:: holding my breath for this one, guys.

more later! smooch.
