The Mug

As a 'congrats on finishing pre-clinical medicine' pressie, I had a personalized mug made for my study-buddy-brotha-from-another-motha, Ryan.

It turned out even better than I had anticipated. He got me a silver ring with BEARS on it (albinoblackbears, naturally) as a little good-luck charm for the USMLE. I am predicting that I will have a borderline allowable amount of jewelery/good-luck charms on during the exam.

I wish I had my lucky t-shirt (somehow sold/lost/stolen in one of my many moves) for the big day. It was Lucy from Peanuts running with a giant syringe in her hand and it said, "Mount Royal Nursing" on it. I didn't go to MRC but the cartoon was killer.

So cool! The mug turned out awesome.

Thanks! Yeah, I loved it. I wish I would have made myself one actually.

I usually hate all things which advertise that we are in medical school...but I thought the halfway point deserved to be recognized.

Just make sure none of those lucky things is a watch! Finished up yesterday and feel almost like a normal human being again, though my lap feels strangely empty and my neck oddly uncramped.
