Monthly Archives: October 2011

day in the life of October.

  1. Eat.
  2. Sleep. (how many do I need to be fully functional?)
  3. Run.
  4. Study.
  5. Birthday (or maybe birth-week?): thanks for the delicious dinner and amazing birthday cake. I think there might be more cakes to come. Some awesome new TOMS , $$$, first set of wine glasses (more to come on that)!
  6. Test.
  7. Repeat.


Blacktober: the wonderful month of October in your second year of medical school. A right of passage, a month (or 6 weeks in our case) of more hours of studying in a week than you thought possible, missing the one I love even though he is sitting in the other room studying too, not actually celebrating my birthday, and hopefully doing well on the second and third set of tests that second year has brought upon us.

Medical school is hard. First year sucks. Second year is better, but do not mistake that for any easier. 36 days and counting until Disney World. Until then guess I will feel like this.
