It was a good day today. My “island” retreat is working. I’m able to get the work done without feeling panicky. Its seems that I always have something to fall back on if I screw up these days, and that really helps me to de-stress. The exams don’t seem like a life-or-death struggle anymore. I’m just plodding along and working and not letting my fear get in my way. I made a good, workable time-table to get everything done in time. I worked 8 hours today. Less than I would have liked, but a good day still. I also watched Patch Adams on cable. Great movie for would-be doctors. It does something to rejuvenate the spirit of a medical student in his final year preps. Let’s hope tomorrow works out as well.
