happy new year!

twenty-ten should be a good one...

this year i am expected to:
  • figure out what i want to do for the rest of my life
  • somehow pass and superbly ace the STEP 2 exam so i can at least have a shot at getting into a decent residency
  • fly on multiple planes and interview/suck up to strangers as to allow me to be favorably ranked
  • hopefully go to SPAIN! this summer
  • run a 5k with K (i totally am stealing/copying her new year's resolution)

it's kind of daunting when i think about it. but i learned a lot about myself in 2009:
  • i can survive the first 2 years of med school
  • i passed STEP 1 so at least i know that that i meet the bare minimum competency requirement of becoming a doctor (so far)
  • i'm a good M3 student...gotten great remarks thus far
  • i like surgery type things, and i may not be a pediatrician after all
  • people can be assholes at conferences and try to call you out while you give your presentation, but eh, what can you say. i stayed in that fancy hotel for free and got to have a nice vacation with H otherwise...
  • and much much more...
today i'm planning a traditional new year's feast with H. cornbread, black eyed peas, greens, +/- cabbage (i think if you have greens it's ok), some sort of meat and dessert...i'm kind of excited about it!

happy 2010 everyone!
