It’s crunch time, people…which is why I haven’t been writing here recently. Tomorrow and/or the day after, my Obstetrics and Gynecology End of Posting exams for 6th will start. As per usual, I have one clinical long case exam and a written one. I feel ready. Been studying with my friend for about three weeks non-stop.
Speaking of which, I haven’t really mentioned him in this blog before. “Zim” is one of my close friends and a really good study partner. I mean really, we medical students can’t survive without asking each other on the spot…questions like “what is the management of Endometriosis?” in this case. The trick here is good chemistry. Really good chemistry. You don’t need a bookworm study buddy or your best friend in the same field to help you. After all, your best friend can be your worst enemy when it comes to studying. Either he rants on about life situations and jokes around or becomes too strict…and either way he’ll somehow blame you for not progressing. Sadly, I had those experiences with other good friends of mine. I found Zim, however, to be great! It’s a matter of balancing each other out, asking questions constantly, creating a smooth vibe, finishing each other’s sentences when it comes to analyzing cases, and having a fun time. I’m glad that we hype each other up or else I would’ve never worked this hard alone and would’ve had a negative idea of studying with a partner. After all, my 41/50 in pediatrics was–after God’s support–thanks to studying with a partner.
Unfortunately for me, E3 2009 will be starting today as well. I won’t have time to completely catch up with this awesome gaming expo until Thursday. Also, in case you haven’t noticed, 4 of my Project COE crew will be attending E3 this year. I’ve setup a wordpress blog so that we can update seamlessly since our new site isn’t quite ready yet. You can check it out here:
Keep in mind that this will be the very first time our group will meet each other face-to-face. I did technically meet Jarrod in Montreal two summers ago, but that was more personal obviously. I’m sure that they’ll have lots of fun. Just keep checking the blog above for live updates.
Finally, as of today (my time), it’s Project COE’s 5th year online! Talk about overkill. My exam, E3, and this all in the same time! Too bad we don’t have anything special planned due to E3 plans, but I’m sure our crew will find time to celebrate there…and we can always whip something up as soon as they return next week.
As always, later days, people. I’ll update you guys with my progress as soon as I can.
