The One with the Numbers

Review questions I completed today: 109.

Times I refilled my coffee cup today and STILL wound up jittery: 1.

Days of surgical clinical responsibility remaining: 3.

Hours worked in three days of clinical responsibility last week: 46.5

Highest number of consecutive hours standing in an OR without food or drink last week: 14

Avocados purchased yesterday that now require a use: 4.

Days until shelf exam: 5.

Study days I probably would need to do as well on this shelf as the past few: 17.5.

Times I’ve danced to that catchy Bruno Mars song in my car and it’s been the best part of my day this week: 4.

Days until I return to real life and become quite possibly the happiest person on the face of the earth regardless of shelf score: 5.


If you haven’t gathered from the above, my surgery clerkship is coming to its end, and I clearly couldn’t care less am beside myself with excitement. Though I do think it’s really neat to observe all sorts of procedures in the OR, I could do without the 4 AM alarm clocks and 15 hour days that leave no time for studying, cooking, working out, keeping in contact with loved ones, blogging, and so on.

…real life resumes in 5 days, and you can catch my glorious return then.

Until then, hop over to the Medical Mondays link-up and get your fill of medical blogging.

    • So glad you stopped by! Med school really does get better and better every year… and even though surgery is not my thing, I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. πŸ™‚ Let me know if you ever have any questions as you move forward!!

  1. Wow, sounds like you have been busy but you are nearing the end…or at least a break! Impressed how you put in those hours. Glad to have found your blog as well!
