Happy Mardi Gras from New Orleans!
So happy that I live in a city that will have marching brass bands despite some icy rain!
Nearly to last medical school shelf exam ever. Quickly losing the steam to plough ahead…
On another note, submitted rank list yesterday! Now I need some numb numbing, time consuming hobbies to tide me until March 21st.

Skyline at dusk near the Italian market, Philadelphia. Looking forward to the last residency interview this season on Wednesday! And also enjoying exploring Philly’s interesting communities.

Taking advantage of the last residency interview to meet up with wonderful friends and explore the ethnic food scene of Philly. Was introduced to an Indian restaurant ticked in the back of a supermarket. To a corner , there was a television playing Bollywood movies minus subtitles and we aye out of plastic containers. Falling in love with this city already!
After a car collision with a semi, I decided it was some time for retail therapy at the Disney store. Hello, little guy, please protect me from 18 wheel trucks turning right from left turn lanes while I am stuck in its blind spot. That would be much appreciated.
On another note, I hope this means I have used up any bad karma for this year. And that my poor car will not fall apart before I graduate from medical school in May. Nearly there!
… And as the rain / ice / sleet storm hits New Orleans, it seems like this city is more in a state of confusion than hurricane warnings. The medical school has shut down and so has the post deliveries. After having lived in the Northeast and in England, this panic is somewhat bewildering.
On another note, the NRMP rank list has now opened, finally bringing residency interview season to a frantic close. Now for the waiting game from now until March 21st! Time to find a time consuming hobby to get my mind off this craziness…
