Today was the first day of my pediatrics rotation. It involved lectures and tours and lectures and lectures. I have yet to even see a child, and surprise surprise I have a runny nose, sore throat, and headache.
My roommate arrived to her first day of surgery 25 minutes late, got stuck on a team with someone with whom she once had a random and awkward make-out, and got assigned to the senior resident who likes to do pre-pre-rounds and be terribly mean. She will be arriving at the hospital at 4:30am every day for the next 8 weeks.
It’s going to be an interesting year.
