So It Begins...

lets see...been awhile since ive done this. i spent the last couple of weeks in july sitting on my butt, watching tv and eating a lot. raymond and i found an apt in westwood, but we cant move in till the end of august. bought a nice computer. still car shopping...

last monday was my first day of orientation at my medical school. it was a pretty intense week, trying to balance figuring out how to take care of the 392845324 forms we have to fill out or take care of, as well as trying to make conversation with 150 strangers (give or take). theres a helluva lot more people from my private college than i expected (id say at least 15, probably more), and i definitely noticed a bit of resentment among public college people towards us...apparently people think stanofrd folk are really snobby, but i really hope we dont come across like that usually...
now im socially drained and have had about as many "so where are you from?" conversations this past week that i had during freshman orientation of college.

the last thing we did this past friday was the white coat ceremony, where they have this big production and put one of those doctor white coats on you. that was a bit surreal...suffice to say, i really hope i know what im getting myself into...
