You know what they say about all work and no play…I don’t know what it is with me, but I think I operate on a ratio basis with work and play. The more I have of one, the more I have of the other. I started a new rotation this week at a totally new site, which means getting used to both a different population and a different giant hospital. I totally admit to getting lost quite a bit the past few days.

Monday night, I was tired, but after my mom’s surgery and an intense first day at a new placement, I really needed some downtime. Unfortunately, I kind of suck at relaxing way home. The to-do list has a way of getting the better of me, especially on a weeknight. When my friend Anna asked if I wanted to meet up for a drink, I said yes, which is a bit out of character for me on a weeknight, but I’m so glad I did! There’s nothing like a little girl-talk to set you on the path to a good week.
