Out of Order

It's finals week.

That's probably all I need to say.  

We are currently out of order around here, but we expect to be back soon.  Roughly around Thursday, which also so happens to be the last day of finals to be exact.  What a coincidence.

By the way, I really think I deserve something for channeling all most of my typing energy into these papers and final projects instead of my blog.  I love to write, and I love to type (is that weird? It's one of my favorite things to do) and it takes some crazy amount of discipline for me to not blog right now. 

Thanks for sticking around.  Here's to hoping that I'll have more interesting things to say later.

(Editor's note: thanks for all the support on that last post.  In addition to the comments and emails, I got a lot of texts from friends and even a visit or two, reassuring me that life will not be that bad, and even if it is, then there are always ways to celebrate the positive. I have great friends and family.)

Negative Nancy-Land

In preparation for our future, I found some blogs written by wives of medical school students...two hours and one emotional breakdown later, that was the dumbest thing I've ever done.  

I ask you, med school wives, what's the point of having a blog if all you ever write about is how terrible your lonely, dismal, depressing life is when you are at home raising your two kids all by yourself and you see your husband for twenty minutes on a Sunday, and then you are alone again to start the whole desperately monotonous routine all over again? Do you just not anyone to join your club? Are you trying to scare off all the newcomers so you can bubble in the exclusivity of being a med school wife??  I will not make friends with you, because you are apparently a negative Nancy all the time and who the heck likes negative Nancies?**

Even if that's what my life is like, I will refuse to accept it.  I will blog about how pretty the flowers are outside or something, I just will not focus on everything that may be less than ideal about our situation on every single post.  (Cue the sound of everyone un-following my blog in anticipation of it getting really, really boring.) 

In other news, this hot guy:

Takes the MCAT on Saturday.  He'll do amazing.  He is the most dedicated student I have ever known.  But, regardless, good vibes are always appreciated :)

**"Nancies" just seemed like the logical choice when trying to find the plural of Nancy.
