I cancelled those that I could – those that weren’t as high on my list already or didn’t have a nonrefundable flight attached to them. If I hadn’t worried about rising gas prices a month ago I would have gone to a Texas program over one in Pennsylvania that I've already purchased a ticket for, but I’m stuck now.
For a pre-birthday gift Wife purchased me a Magellan Maestro GPS unit to help navigate during this time. Since I’m driving to a large amount of these programs it helps to have something that can get me around town and this is a great gift! I used it a lot this last week just to see how it works, going to places I knew how to get to already, but seeing where it would take me and if there were any problems. Dead-on every time and it worked quickly most of the time. A few times it stalled getting my information, but during the trips it was fantastic.
Getting an idea from GruntDoc, MD, I decided to do a dead blog update of my own. Basically if there hasn't been any activity for 2 months I deleted you from my sidebar. Those considered dead are:
- Adventures in Medical School
- Parcho, MD (let me know if you start again)
- Scutmonkey (went private)
So, being in an after turkey-day malaise, tomorrow I plan to get out the Christmas decorations, start to get the tree put together, study for my Step 2 CS in a week, and eat a lot of leftovers. On Sunday interviews begin - oh yeah.
