Well, I promised a month ago that I was going to turn over anew leaf and actually blog. Well that hasn’t happened. I have been overwhelmed with work. And I have a big test coming up at the end of June. This is my subspecialty board certification exam – at least the written part of it. So in all my spare time I have been studying. I haven’t studied this much since I was in medical school. And I much prefer vegging in front of the television.
I have taken this week as vacation, and I have been studying every day. And I can tell you, I have found some neat coffee shops in the city. Initially, my plan had been to rent a car and go somewhere quiet to study. Then I decided to save some money and stay here in the city. So Monday I went to 71 Irving Place, a neat coffee shop near Union Square. Tuesday it was off the the Upper East side to DT, UT. That was fun. They are very different. Yesterday I went to Blue Spoon Coffee which is downtown. That was cause I went to Nobu for dinner last night. Boy was that good. Today I decided against a coffee shop for themorning and went and sat at the tables in Bryant Park. The weather has been great. And I have taken a bunch of long walks as study breaks. Right now I am waiting at Starbucks for one of the residents – we have to talk abot her research project.
I have had the opportunity to knit some this week. I never thought I would be able to study and knit at the same time. So I grabbed some stockinette and gave it a try. And it works. I can’t be concentrating too hard to memorize something, but if I am reviewing something that I know pretty well, then I can knit away. I will post some progress pics soon – I promise.
I have had a rough few weeks at work, so this vacation was much needed. I hope all is well with everyone out there in blogland. Enjoy the long weekend.
