So, residency is winding down. Two years has gone by SO FAST. I'm actually getting glad that I'm doing a fellowship. A month or two ago I would have said that the fellowship was a bit of a waste of time and I felt ready to go into practice. Now, I'm glad I'm doing it because I feel unprepared to do all the business side stuff of starting a practice AND if I failed the exam then I'll have time to study and take it again in the fall. The exam still looms over my like a dark cloud and there is still another week and a half until the results come out. Someone told me they'd be out on the 15th - not sure if that was just a rumor. Was talking over the SOOs with a colleague yesterday and feel even worse about them now than right after the exam. I wish I could stop thinking about it but it seems every day someone asks me if I got my results yet. Sad me :(

I need to start thinking about how to pack up and move all my stuff! 2 apartments worth of stuff, 1 apartment, interesting conundrum. Good thing Ben is really low on furniture and his place is a 2 bedroom. I'm tired of moving but we'll probably end up moving out of the waterloo place sooner rather than later because it's ugly and sucky. Maybe we can finally have a place with a dishwasher that isn't named Kate!

Oh I didn't know you were doing a r3. What are you doing it in?

I'm doing 6 months of "rural" OB and women's health in the Kitchener Waterloo area - not very rural, but I'm working with one of my favorite preceptors ever.

That's awesome. Will you learn how to do sections?

... so...?

We got "the" email today in the middle of our academic day. Luckily the speaker was good natured when we explained why 30 people were suddenly whispering, giggling, and staring down at their iphones!

I'm aiming for forceps, vacuum and manual rotation.
