Not having a super busy schedule on match week is dangerous for those of us who tend to be catastrophists (a trait inherited from my mom, the world’s best at coming up with worst case scenarios).
On the other hand, I do have a half marathon to race on Sunday (2 days after Match Day), making me want to keep the overall vibe of the week “low.”
Basically, I don’t want to spend too much energy worrying about what I have no control over at this point.
Thus, I am coming up with plans for myself to keep “excitingly busy”…and distracted.
Thus far, the plan includes lots of running, a SoulCycle class, a Figure 4 Class, a few sessions tutoring the future of America, the RC/RCH’s Picky Bars event, nails, seeing Silver Linings Playbook, finishing up a research project/writing abstract/making poster, and finding new TV shows to get addicted to. Shopping will probably get thrown in there, too, for good measure. Culinary adventures…probably not.
So, any suggestions to add to this list, let me know. I don’t watch Parenthood or Nashville or the Mindy Project or Pretty Little Liars or Downton Abbey and hear those shows are all the rage. Might check out one of those.
To all 4th year med students out there, may the odds be ever in your favor!
