On a more fun note, I'm in favor of promoting blogs that I enjoy, as well as sharing the opportunity to win free stuff. Head over to Sarah's blog at Ghost World and check out her giveaway! Sarah is a much less sporadic (and much more cohesive) blogger than I am, so I am sure you'll find her site very interesting.
As a fun fact, she and I were actually grappling with similar decisions many moons ago related to the MSTP programs we were in. She opted to take a master's degree and go back to med school. I opted to join a second lab. She's now in her last year of residency, getting ready to start a fellowship next year. I'm in my third lab, hopefully aiming to start my third year of medical school next year. Which means I am five years behind her, training-wise. Guess who made the better decision there? Yeah, I know, don't rub it in.
But, she did introduce Tim to the best shrimp and cheese grits he's ever had when we met her in North Carolina, so the least I can do is direct a few people her way :) Good luck on the giveaway!
