Is there Life Before Death?
Yeah...the new place. Can't say where it is, 'course, y'unnerstan', but...it rocks. I think one of the most critical things is that people are happy here. I mean, the people who have been here for a while. And they keep people here. Not like my last place, where people would only stay a couple of years (as attendings, I mean.) But this place--when I asked how many from the graduating class they hired, they said, "None!". And I thought, well, that's not good--the new attendings want to get away, right? No, actually...as it turns out, there were just no positions open; that lots of the graduating class would stay if they could, but there was no positions because nobody leaves because they are happy here.
I'll have to admit, I really didn't want to move...so I didn't. Now I have an hour commute, but I'm never bored, and I never wait. I figure I'll listen to my Gold Standard
stuff left over from studying step 3. The pharmacology at least will still not be old. And since it is such a chore for me to study when I'm home (I'd rather watch Battlestar
or The Daily Show
or clean or read novels like Lois McMaster Bujold
, or (hopefully) get back into Aikido
or back into Guitar
or talk to my GF.)
As always, more later...
