Now I am on a two week "vacation". Well, really this first week I am taking Step 2 CS in LA, so that's not vacation. But other than that, we'll be visiting friends in LA and going on our annual beach camping trip in Oregon, which I'm really looking forward to. I'm really looking forward to getting Step 2 CS over with. And unfortunately, it still needs a lot of work, but I actually have my first draft of my personal statement. It's actually been a lot harder to write than I was expecting. For some reason, I'm just really having trouble articulating my thoughts, and I am having trouble structuring it, which I need to do in order to base my entire writing process on. So needless to say, I've been pretty busy lately. But at least I've been productive.
I've been pretty annoyed at myself ever since I got my Step 2 CK score back. I didn't score nearly as high as I was expecting, and I don't know why. It's not like I didn't feel comfortable going into it. And I scored about 20 points higher on my practice test than on the actual one, so that was pretty disappointing. Oh well, there's nothing I can do about it now. But I'm having trouble letting go.
The good news is that after my next rotation (Gyn Onc), I don't have all that much to worry about besides residency applications and interviews. By then, I'll have taken all of my boards exams, finished my personal statement, asked for letters of recommendation, and will have finished all of my most important rotations. Man, is it really already July?!

BF (as I'm typing this post prior to publishing it), "Oh, are you blogging?"
BF: "What are you blogging about? Your personal statement?"
Me: "YES... but also about other stuff."
BF: "Like Step 2?"
Me: "YES ... what else?"
BF: "Finishing your first Acting Internship"
Me: "Wtf, how do you know?! Do you even read my blog?"
BF: "No, but I read your mind..."
