I am officially done with four 4th year rotations!  That means I'm 1/3 of the way done with it... which is mild to moderately crazy.  I'm also in the midst of my residency application, trying to figure out where I want to apply.  I'm planning on using the shotgun approach... apply to a bunch of places that fit my criteria and are in places I would consider living, and then interview and see what strikes my fancy.  Maybe not the best strategy, but I've gotta use SOMETHING to narrow down the 400 something family residency options.  So I'm going with academic programs with sports medicine fellowships that really aren't in places warmer than this.  Because I like seasons.  Anyway, I'm done with 4/12 rotations... lets do a little recap.

Rotations: Done
  • Pediatric ICU
  • Step 2 study month
  • Rehabilitation
  • Emergency Medicine
Rotations: To DO
  • Family Medicine (Inpatient)
  • Orthopedics (Foot/Ankle/Trauma)
  • Burn Surgery
  • Campus Health at WFU
  • Vacation/Interviews
  • Law and Medicine
  • Sports Medicine
  • Community Medicine
So, that's what the rest of the year looks like!  It should be fantastic.  After the last rotation, we have a few weeks of final lectures and a couple packing/moving weeks of vacation... then it's GRADUATION TIME!  Yay.

In other news, I made a delicious Sunday morning breakfast of waffles with strawberries/raspberries and some coffee... in my new Life Is Good mug.  And let's face it, mugs don't lie. 

Mmmm, waffles w/ berries and coffee... Life Is Good (so the mug says).

Wyatt likes waffles too.

Have a good Sunday!
