Medical Monday - Start of Medical School

After a long hiatus, I am back!

The last three months have been very fulfilling

I completed three runs - the 12K Bay to Breakers, the 10K Camp Pendleton Mud Run, and the 26K San Francisco marathon:

The half marathon was a good run overall, but I was definitely starting to feel the burn during the uphill climb at the 10-11 mile mark. 

I started a new relationship over the summer, which is now a long-distance relationship. We'll see how that goes.

Annnnnnd since it's Medical Monday, I'm lukewarmly proud to say that I've now moved into my studio apartment to begin my first semester of medical school.


I feel lukewarm about the whole matter, if only because I have underestimated the cost and difficulty of moving into a new place without a car. I'm tired of cleaning, or assembling furniture, of making frequent walking trips to the nearby (thank goodness it's nearby) Target, and scouring the internet to find the best deals on furniture. I still have a lot of things I need to buy - spices, a skillet, cooking utensils and more groceries so I am not eating the same things every day. There are also things I want to buy: rugs, another lamp, and a computer.


The stress and workload of moving into a new place has overridden my excitement of having my own place.

Orientation is this Wednesday. The current second years have organized several welcome week activities for us, so I'm looking forward to that as well. I built my desk, so I'm happy to finally have a table (instead of standing/sitting at my kitchen counter).

More updates to come!
