    I’m trying to finish my personal statement for residency and I’m so fucking glad I married an editor.

    I feel like I just glommed a bunch of words on a page and said “let me take care of kids plz” and he is patiently reconstructing it into a comprehensive narrative.

    I finally checked my school email after avoiding it all summer. I need to find a nonprofit to consult with, so obviously, I reached out to a Corgi Rescue first. I just did now, so not sure what they will say. Anyway, two classes this semester, and then I'm done!!! The teachers were listed as TBD when I registered, and now they've been assigned to one of the teachers I always try to sign up for, and the other one that I knew I was going to get anyway, who isn't too bad. I can survive the next four months :)

    Does the nonprofit need to be local? If the corgi rescue doesn't work out, J's shelter is a nonprofit and I can maybe get him to pull some strings.

    Yay for almost being done! Friday is my last day. I have a group slideshow presentation (we have to narrate it) and a 700 word paper, which is nothing, to complete and that's it. Done done and done. I also passed my big paper.

    I also have "senioritis" ril bad.

    @Apples&Oranges It doesn't have to be a local nonprofit. That would be great! I'll let you know.

    It hasn't been 24 hours yet, so I know I won't get an answer from the nonprofit. They forwarded my request to their director. School doesn't start until Monday, but the teacher wants the organization by tomorrow. I have a few days! Give me a few days.

    My nonprofit came through. I still need to consult with the client on what exactly they would want/need, and then go on from there. Even though it's the day before classes start, I went ahead and looked at both syllabi. In that class, I only have the project, which I'll work on by myself (80%) and then a reflection paper (20%). I'm pretty pumped about working by myself! I have a group project, of course, in the other class. It's the traditional class -- weekly assignments, group project, mid-term, and then final exam. In four months, I'll be done with this!

    My first board exam didn’t go great. I just got my score back for the second and I got absolutely exactly what I was hoping. I can show programs now that I’ll be a good resident and that I will be more than capable of passing exams and I’m so, so happy.

    On the other side of my life, I’m working tomorrow until midnight on Friday the 13th in the ER. Just FYI in case it turns into a horror movie and I go missing, I noped my way out of there and am hiding in the autopsy lab.

    Okay but hiding usually does not end up well in the movies.

    I’ll hide with the bone saw.

    Good choice to be used against you, much quicker than a boring scalpel.

    Don’t have sex, because if you have sex you die. Also don’t go off alone, because you’ll die.

    Do not drink, do drugs, or say, “I’ll be right back.”

    Update: “The patient was referred to jail” is the single nicest euphemism for “arrested” I have seen in a note.

    “Discharged to custody” is what we usually say in notes. “Placement found at the Crossbar Inn” is what we say staff to staff

    I'm in the middle of my very last group project in this program. It's a group of 4. So far, one member has dropped the class and the other member hasn't been responding to emails. I already have our project outlined. I just need to get the work divided out.
