Whoa, I'm ten!!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Whoa, I'm ten!!

Postby elfshadow » Sat Jan 11, 2014 6:54 pm

Well, it's been a while, but I was just reminded that my ten-year TORCiversary happened only a few weeks ago! So I thought I'd check in and see how all my old friends are doing. I see some of you on Facebook, and I am so glad to be able to keep up with many TORCers! And for those I don't see on FB, please tell me how you're doing!

I'm currently midway though my second year of medical school, which is crazy considering that when I joined TORC I was a high school sophomore! My life is pretty focused on studying for the first part of our licensing exam, which we take in mid-April. After that, I get to start my clinical rotations and actually be Doing Real Things. :) So I'm looking forward to that. At the moment, surgery is at the top of my list, although that might change.

So, how is everyone??

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Thought I'd check in for the next time she appears :) hope you're having a great time at med school Elfy, and happy Tenth TORCiversary! Nearly 11 for us both now actually! Though sadly we're both around less than we'd probably like. Ah, the good ol' days!

Hope everyone else is well!
