I was already in the midst of a full physical anyway, so I figured I might as well make the most of my visit.
“Well, when I was doing my surgery rotation…,” my primary care doctor started, “I just hated it.”
He talked about the hours, the attitudes, and the lifestyle, but also something that I hadn’t thought much about.
“I also did my rotation in the middle of the winter. It was one of the hardest winters ever—not seeing the sunshine for days, freezing cold every morning when you’re walking to your car at 3 a.m…”
Nothing that he said was shocking to me (my friend, C, is on her surgery rotation right now and she is tired), but it’s made me appreciate what I have right now.

And, don’t worry, I was taking these pictures when I was stopped at red lights. SEE!
At least if you are stuck in rush hour traffic, it means that you're getting home before dark. Yay!
