I'll be in my bed hiding under the covers if anyone is looking for me....

Today started out shitty and just got shittier as the day progressed and I realize it is only noon but SERIOUSLY, everything thing that could have gone wrong has gone wrong and instead of rolling with the punches I just started crying. It's been bad. I don't want to perseverate on the details because I have been doing that all morning, so I want to talk about some positive things that have been going on instead because I want the day to be better.

1. My attending let us leave at 10 today so I am actually getting some time to be a human, which is really nice.

2. The pooches are at the groomers getting fluffy, so they will be super cuddly tonight

3. I have my 52 week marathon training program all planned out and typed up onto a nice calendar that I'm going to hang on my fridge and check off every day. It starts out super easy (walking 28 minutes and jogging 2 minutes) and progresses slowly, which is really nice and what I need to make it happen.  I mixed a couch to 5K plan and Hal Higdon's marathon training plan (his plan starts with running 3 miles so i figured that I could just do a C25K and flow nicely into the marathon plan.

4. I am doing my 4 miler this weekend.  I will most certainly be walking it but I'm still very very excited! (I'm having some plantar faciitis from hell that's not been my friend when trying to run)

5. I turned in my 4th year scheduling stuff. I can't believe that in just a little over a year I will be done with medical school and about to start a residency.  It just doesn't seem real.

6. The most boring, worst rotation will be over Friday as soon as I finish my final. God willing, I will never, ever, ever have to do it again and that makes me such a happy lady!

7. I am giving myself today as a total cheat day (i planned to do this even before today went to hell in a hand basket) and then starting brand new and fresh on May 1st. I have everything planned out and am excited about it!

Those are all the things I can think of right now. I think I am going to take a nap and then study.

Happy Tuesday everyone.


  1. Sorry today started out so crappy, but great job at focusing on the good stuff.

  2. Things will get better! Especially with the great attitude that you have! Good job Harli!
