Yeah I should probably be going to bed, but fuck it, it’s been a while so I’ll blog
One of the realizations I’ve had in the last two weeks is that internship isn’t too too bad if you don’t have much of a life to begin with. Luckily for me, I didn’t. I mean think about it, I spend close to 15 hrs a day in the hospital on average, which leaves me about an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening.
I guess it’s all good though. Someone once told me that the purpose of residency was to become a doctor not to have fun. So be it 😉
But I’m still lookin forward to this weekend. I’ve worked everyday since since two fridays ago and I’m tired. Just tired. Last weekend I got destroyed. It was the closest I’ve come to crying in public. There was just so much stuff to do in each of my “12 hr” wink wink shifts that I didn’t think I’d get it all done even if I had 20 hr shifts. It was brutal but I somehow pulled it off. God knows how.
But now I’m tired and I could really use a couple of days off. My first day off of residency. Good stuff. I want to reward myself so I thought I’d buy some electronics or something but then the first paragraph of this post hit me–i.e. not having a life outside of the hospital–and I decided to do a spa day instead. Yeah it’s a little soft but I think I’ll get a lot more out of a good back rub and maybe a pedicure than an xbox, which will collect dust. In fact I think the xbox would have the opposite effect and actually depress me each night when I came home to see it but not have time to use it.
Anyway, I better go and get some sleep now. I hope everyone is doing well.
More this weekend when I actually have some time.
