Time Flies

On Saturday night, I headed over to Big Poppa's for a birthday party. I realized afterwards that it had been a very long time since I'd been to any kind of party. They're fun; maybe I should go out more.

Yes, life is a bit dull these days. I did some online CD shopping over the weekend to try and lively it up. A whole pile of Trashcan Sinatra CDs. A Pizzicato Five DVD. Even an album from The Brilliant Green. Plus, I found a used copy of Mint Sound Greatest Hits, Volume 1. However, online shopping results in a ten-to-fifteen-day delay in satisfaction.

I have OSCEs this Thursday and Friday, with 'culture' and 'ethics' exams on Friday afternoon. Monday is our paeds exam. I should be studying, working, pushing. Instead, time seems to flow by, but I've stepped out of the stream.

I hope all went well!

I have my first mini-OSCE this afternoon and I am more stressed than I think I should be. I am sure your's went by breezy, but I am finding that my regular multiple choice studying that I have been doing for almost a decade now is not up to snuff for this one-on-one performance testing. I am going to have to find whole new study techniques. :)

Hoo boy, Friday morning was rough. Started with a mini mental, which I did not study whatsoever. Threw me off completely. Oh well, one maneuver out of seven blown; as long as I did well enough on the rest.

Med Neo, I hope your mini-OSCE went well. It's a bit stressful at first; funny enough, I find that some people talk too much, and don't demonstrate enough. That's a trap I would avoid, since on a real patient, it's the actual exam that's important, not so much the talking.

Mad, fruit flies like a banana.
