December

It's been a while since I last posted. December and Advent have arrived (well, Advent arrives tomorrow).

Last weekend, I spent both afternoons in a Starbucks at the local Chapters, just doing some 'Culture, Health, and Wellness' work; they were playing Christmas carols the whole time. Three songs jumped out at me; one was an uninspired cover of 'Happy Xmas (War is Over)'. I kept thinking, is that Sarah McLaughlin? She's killed this song. Well, it was her, and she did kill it. The second song that jumped out at me (a personal favourite): 'Hallelujah' by LC. Of course, besides use of the word 'Hallelujah', it is in no way whatsoever a Christmas song. Anyways, the third song was 'Reggae Christmas' by Bryan Adams. I actually have the 72-rpm 'Christmas Time' single from 1985 back home, printed in glorious translucent green vinyl. Ah, that took me back to happy days.

Unfortunately, this weekend, I've been too busy to make it to Chapters. Instead, I've had a couple of Christmas parties to go to. I can't get into the mood, though. We're so busy at school; it sucks, really. Oh well, two more weeks, and it'll be vacation time. January will be ugly too, but February should be nice and relaxing. I can't say that I've ever looked forward to February so much in my life.

From the news, it's interesting to see that St├ęphane Dion has been elected as the head of the Liberal party. Looks like Ignatieff was viewed as being too soft on the Iraq war back in his Harvard days. This should heat things up this winter...

I too am trying to sneak in some work between the play this weekend. I can always tell that my life is out of wack when I start resenting the time I spend on all the things I would normally enjoy.
Back to anatomy.

Why do they pile the work on in the last two weeks of term?

I am currently writing up my psych logbook, while stressing about revision for the written exams and OSCE and also writing the abstract for my conference poster project. And all I really want to do is wear tinsel, sing Christmas songs and eat lebkuchen!

Ah, Med Neophyte, I wish I had enjoyed that Christmas party a bit more, but there was CHW journaling to be done!

Anna, you sound busy. In our case, we're actually into our last three months of 'classroom learning'. I can't wait until it's over, not because I don't like classes, but because I don't like running in so many directions at once...

I had fun but my pile of work also won out at after a couple of dances. I think I was at home curled up with my rheumatology book by midnight.

Well, I do not really believe this will have success.
