I Can't Keep Track Of What Day Of The Week It Is

   Right now is the end of Day 11 of boards studying.  Today was my first day off.  I planned on doing 8-10 hour days, and I have actually ended up doing 8-12 hour days, because I am slow to get through things.  I'm a little behind on practice questions, but that's okay, because I have some cushion "review" time built in at the end of the study period before my test.

   Studying has been alright... some days I am super focused and productive - other days, it's a struggle to get through the material.  At times, I have been relying on music to keep me awake, alert and focused.  Some of my power albums have been:

1) The Foreign Exchange "Leave It All Behind"
2) Bonobo "Black Sands" (thanks to BF who introduced me to Bonobo)
3) The Civil Wars "Barton Hollow"
4) Yo-Yo Ma "Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone"
5) Bon Iver "Bon Iver"

   I probably listen to each one of those albums at least once per day, so I'm kinda itching for new study music... So if you have any suggestions, holler.

   One thing that has kinda sucked about this study period is that I haven't really seen much of my friends.  Everyone is off doing their own study thing.  I see BF everyday though, so at least I have him to keep me sane :).  On Friday was our annual "roast" of the school, aka Mirth Control.  This year, since everyone was busy studying for boards, we decided to do something quick and dirty, so I helped put together a "Shit MS2s Say" video.

      So I know this post is super scattered (I have basically been holding all my thoughts in until I had some free time to blog) but one last thing: I found my third gray hair the other day! AHH! I'm getting old.  I'm 23.  This is what med school does to you, I guess?
