My life from the last 6 months in outline form:

A. Med school.
1. Internal medicine: liked it, still considering.
2. Anesthesiology: liked it, still considering.
3. Pediatrics: liked it, don't like doing mean things to kids, out of the running.

B. Mates.
1. Have been spectacularly bad at keeping up with people (again). Will try to improve this.
2. Made new friends.
3. Improved friendships down here. Recent trip to Mexico with friends for friend's wedding.
4. Realized some old friends are no longer friends. Sucks, but part of life.

C. Men.
1. Paul and I broke up last December. Didn't so much feel like posting about it at the time.
2. Got my stuff from STL this weekend. Had a good chat with Paul. Everything went awesomely chill, so again, must work on not having unnecessary worries.
3. Met Markus, a German medical student on exchange at Baylor for 2 months. He went back to Germany for 6 weeks. He came back to Houston for 4 weeks. Lived with me, life was good. He's now currently in Switzerland for residency. Now attempting a transatlantic relationship. Awesome. Go me.
4. Miss Markus. Won't see him for 3 months. Going to hang out in Switzerland for a month in October. Currently attempting German.

The sum of all these things is that life is pretty good. Lots of new changes, experiences, people that lead to "personal growth" or whatever. In short, Catherine = happy most of the time.

Lord, they have way better music festivals in Europe than here. Not to mention it is way easier to get around there than here.

Check these:
Rock Werchter in Belgium
Oxegen in Ireland
and already over Rock am Ring in Germany
+ others, but I won't bore you or make me more jealous.

I mean, I could make it to Austin City Limits, but the schedule is not as good as last year, and I would be paying a lot of money for only a handful of bands that I really want to see.

Why can't I be headed across the pond a few months earlier? Boo.

Scheisseballen, it's been a long-ass time since I've updated this thing. Or even looked at it, for that matter.

Got a big puppy staying with me until tomorrow, who is shoving his nose under my hands and making it very hard to type.

Heading to STL tomorrow afternoon. Will update with bullet-points about my life sometime in the next few days.

You know those days when you feel incredibly stupid? That despite the fact that you have almost 27 years of learning how to gauge people, you really have no fucking clue? Yeah, one of those days. And no, not because it's valentine's day.

Bleehhhhh . . . I hate being sick. I knew it was coming all weekend, and other than last night, I tried to ward it off by laying low. To no avail. Stupid lungs - you are the bane of my existence sometimes. Bah.

Oh well, at least it's a good excuse to sit around, drink a lot of tea and honey, eat Annie's mac n'cheese for dinner, and watch cheesy movies. And, even though it's one of the cheesiest and silliest movies ever, I freaking love She's the Man. So funny, so so funny. Yay for cheesy movies! Now to pick out another one . . .

OH! and the one other exciting piece of news that I didn't have time to write about yesterday . . . I did my evaluation with my upper level resident and my attending yesterday, and I got a perfect evaluation from my attending! And he offered to write me a recommendation should I chose to go into internal medicine (which is highly likely) for residency, and he is the fucking Chief of Medicine at the VA. Holy fucking shit, batman! Not to mention he is up there with Jay in terms of favorite professors of all time - I so want to be able to do a sub-internship under him at some point. Talk about being on cloud 9 - I've had a cold all weekend, but the adrenaline rush kept me going all afternoon yesterday. Yay yay yay!

I love life, I love life, I love life! This is why I wanted to go to medical school . . . I knew I'd get over the class part, some of which was interesting, but a lot of which was frustrating, and I'd end up here. And I thought I'd like clinics much better than class, but I had no idea how much more. It's SO FUCKING AWESOME! I love my team this last month, I love my attending, I love my patients . . . I've met so many interesting people with so many interesting stories to tell. How often do you get to spend as long as you want talking to someone who was a nurse in WWII? So awesome. I'm totally putting the effort out to see my team-members now that my VA rotation is over - I'm going to bribe them with mojitos and sangria :) Yaaaaaaaayyyyyyy life is exciting!

Now I must try to calm down so that I can sleep before starting my rotation at Ben Taub tomorrow morning. I'm so intrigued after hearing so many crazy-insane stories about that place!

I had the best team EVER this past month. I don't want to leave. I had quite possibly the best attending in the entire world, my resident was hilarious as hell, and all the interns were super cool people who I hope I can keep up with and be friends with. I just got back from my attending taking us all out to excellent Mexican food dinner, complete with margaritas the size of my head and a couple of rounds of shots of aged Anejo tequila. Holy shit, it was so much fun! Can I please just do the rest of my internal medicine rotation at the VA? That would be so unbelievably awesome. I've been spoiled for the rest of med school . . .

It's rampant posting lately, boys and girls. More randomness . . .

Two things - what is up lately with the rash of half-naked men and model/talent agencies messaging me on MySpace? 1. put your damned shirt back on - I don't care how many muscles you have. 2. let's be serious, I am in no way shape or form a model-type, nor do any photos on my profile suggest as such.

I need to start going to more shows - I've fallen out of the habit, since I have no concert-going buddies. But fuck it - I just need to start going by myself again!
