A good day

May 18, 2010

Slow and steady wins the proverbial race. I love proverbs. I am, in general, pro-verb.

In autumn, a rainy day is a downer, characterized by bad moods, foreshadowing even darker days ahead. In spring, a rainy day is hydrating, promising me tomatoes on my fire escape.

So, today was a good day, rain included. Here’s why:

1) I pushed back my USMLE exam. I have almost 2 more weeks to study. In other words, I can breathe and take my time. Slow and steady, right? The original plan was to force feed as much information as I could into my head and hope my skull didn’t explode. Then I would immediately go to JFK airport for a 3 week vacation (which, by the way is kind of out of my budget right now…. oops). I formulated this scheme last January. The tortoise-hare conundrum never crossed my mind, at the time clouded by daydreams of passport stamps. Unfortunately, the expensive adventure isn’t happening. Hopefully sanity and a better score are worth it.

2) I hung out with Becca!! A few words about this lovely woman. We became friends at socialist jewish summer camp, which is responsible for 78% of my values. Now that camp’s over, we get together once or twice a year at a diner. Becca is on her way to Tucson to prevent death and help people in the desert. I’m incredibly proud of her. Please pray that she doesn’t get dehydrated.

3) The turtle tank is clean. Shantal is happy to be back home and no longer in the bathtub.

4) There are Daria episodes on youtube. Hello study breaks.

Now for a practice quiz. If anyone is interested in DNA replication, please feel free to hit me up for a chat.

    random piece of information about DNA replication: my aunt and uncle changed their last name to Replicon, because at the time (in the 1980s) that was the name of a DNA replication site. Now, it’s not, and that’s still their last name.
