Looking Back

I've been reading back through some of my old posts and something I said in the first month of med school really struck me.

I remember a Zac from college who used to love nothing more than to sit around on the couch and do absolutely nothing for weeks at a time… ah, those were the days.

I reveled in "not having time" a year ago. I was a medical student. It made me feel important. Nobody else "understood" what it was "like". Yeah, I'm over it. I'd rather lay out in the sun and read a book.

At this point, I'm back to doing nothing. I LOVE doing nothing. It keeps me sane in a world that moves too fast. Obviously I don't have much time to do nothing, but when I do, my ability to do nothing knows no bounds. Call it laziness if you will, I call it coping.

This may be the turning point where I realize... I'm going to rethink high-octance, time-intensive residencies. Frankly, dermatology is looking pretty sweet right now.
