Happy Birthday to Me!

I love my birthday! I always have, I always will! Today I love it even more because today is the last day of my pre-clinical curriculum in medical school. From here on out, I'm actually going to be reminded of why I did this in the first place. Don't get me wrong, it's a little scary. I've never really been anything but a student, and so this is going to be an adjustment. But I'm so excited for it. I know I have to get through boards first, but it's just another necessary bump in the road. And honestly, I've been looking forward to this time of boards prep. It's not hard to study when that's all you have to do.

It's shaping up to be a great day. This morning was hilarious. During our microbiology course we've learned about fungus (and a lot of much more disgusting stuff, but, another time). The professor who talked about this would constantly say "when you see that under the scope It's Miller Time, that's your diagnosis." He must have said "It's Miller Time" 30 times per lecture. So, during the exam, when someone got up and wrote "Miller Time" on the board with an arrow pointing out the door, I chuckled a little and finished my test, thinking nothing of it. I couldn't help but giggle when I turned in my test and left the room to find a sign on the wall that said - "Now it's really Miller Time" with an arrow pointing down - to a big ice bath full of Miller Lite. I took some pictures, I'll post them later. For now though, I'm off to call my friend from college to catch up, pop the cork on some bubbly, and just enjoy one more day before the road to Boards really begins. Feels good.
