I'm Only Looking for My Hand in the Snow

I started my psych rotation last week, and in celebration I put Yoko Ono on repeat in my iTunes. There's a song of hers I love, because it's somewhat strange: Walking on Thin Ice. I've never met another person who liked it; generally, people think you're nuts if you like Ono, and maybe they're right. Anyways, I came across it recently in a listing of remixes, which was a surprise to say the least.

Yesterday, I looked it up in wikipedia. Apparently, the guitar in Walking on Thin Ice is the last musical recording of John Lennon, and when he was shot, he had the final mix of the song in his hands. Hmm. It also appears that a remix of Walking on Thin Ice hit number one on the US dance charts in 2003. Who knew?

Anyways, I'm tired of winter.

I completely agree. Somehow I managed to pack about 60 lbs of luggage and not a single toque. Why can't winter be over? What kind of Canadian am I?

I will have my fingers crossed for you this week!!

Neo: We had some hot weather here last week, so I started to hope that spring was coming... it's back to -12 right now. :(

Aquagrl: Thanks. I see you've just started one. :)

Marysienka: No, no it didn't... I'm officially a persona non grata. Next match date is mid April, with all the applications for it due tomorrow. We'll see if that works out better or not.

Aaaw sorry about that! I hope it works for the next turn... still applying in internal med?

You'll have to explain me something... if you want to specialize in an internal med specialty, say, I dunno, GI. Do you have to apply in general internal med first (since the 1st 3 yrs are in internal med) or it's something different?

I'm applying widely... but my main focus is now paediatrics. Hopefully nobody on any admission committee looks at this post, though!

Yep, that's exactly how it works for subspecialties.
