Moment of Silence

I would just like to use this time to take a moment of silence in remembrance of the Grand Outlet Furniture store. This store provided the jumpstart to many a great career, notably a current Exxon employee and a current Medical Schooler, among many others. It shall be missed, I hope current Grand Facilities Manager Mr Boski will be able to enlighten us with details soon....

On another note, was curious to see what people thought (mainly Pex) about Healthcare. Any affect on your possible salary when you finish up med school? (I know nothing about it so that may be a dumb question)

I'm Alive

Just figured I'd make a little post since I haven't done so in a long time. I don't have anything too interesting to write about so I'll stick to what I know, myself.

Right now I'm living in Frederick, MD for a month doing my obstetrics/gynecology rotation...delivering babies and looking at vaginas...too many vaginas...hairy, unkempt vaginas. The gynecology aspect sucks, I have no interest in doing female physicals. The OB aspect is ok, I get to help with c-sections and deliver babies. Just started Monday so I havent done too much yet, I have sutured up some stomachs after a few c-sections today though. I still wanna do anesthesia. In the process of getting some anesthesia rotations currently.

On that note, I kind of have a dilemma. I've been dating my girlfriend for about 5 months now. We both live in Petersburg, WV for now (except this month when I'm in MD), but in the next couple months we start traveling around to different areas for 4th year rotations. Basically you wanna do rotations at places that have residency programs for your specialty so that they get to know you and possibly write you a letter of recommendation. Long story short, we will probably end up at different places for months at a time, then get accepted into residencies far apart. So you get the picture. Also there aren't any residency programs for anesthesia back home so if I do get accepted I'll be away for 4 more years =(.

I could go on, but I'm done taking my dump now.

Have you guys been watching this year? God I love that show.

Who do you root for? I'm a huge villians fan. Russell, Coach, Boston Rob, and Tyson are all great.

Are we going to get any updates on how the weekend in Houston went Prime? In other news, I have interviews with both E-trade and Freddie Mac coming up. I'm sick off all my travel so I'm looking for a job that is local only. Wish me luck!
