E.xascerbating K.ati's G.nawing neurosis

Out of the clear blue sky -
Out of the clear blue sky drops the sun.
It crashes into the sea.

The shadows are longer, and nobody has to squint.
People are pulling on coats and scarves.
Adjusting their wooliest hats.
Scouring the backs of their closets for mittens.
Soon we’ll be able to see our own breath.
Feel our hearts beating high up in our throats.

As for me, I’m casting spells.
Trying to perfect my technique,
But not having the kind of success I was hoping for.
So far only the dizzy spells seem to be working.

Don't know. Hopefully nothing.
EKG today, cardiac echo tomorrow.
Tuesday I go in to get a 24-hour monitor. yippee.

Having had a fair share of both, I'd say that medical exams are definitely more fun than law school exams. The 24-hour monitor is nothing compared to 72 (nearly) straight hours of studying and I just loooove seeing sonograms of my heart on TV and being inserted into big whurring machines. What could be more fun than that!? Try to enjoy it, or get something from it; it'll hurt less.
