you say goodbye / and i'll say hello

obviously, i've been sort of anti-blogging for a while. and about 30 seconds ago, i was preparing to write some sort of 'farewell' post, because i feel terrible just leaving everyone hanging, you know, because i KNOW everyone still desperately checks this thing every day, hoping that i will re-emerge from the depths of blogging silence.

(i know that probably no one reads this anymore but me. and my mom. and my sister. and sometimes josh.)

but then the blogger screen popped up, and i just couldn't do it. say goodbye, i mean. in fact, i just realized that i've really missed documenting the trials and tribulations (and minor victories) of my small insignificant (if you take a global view of things) existence.

so, no farewell. i just can't do it. and i swear, i'll have something of *real* value to say, really soon.

things i have been doing but not writing about:

1. getting rather motivated in lab. and interested. not making much in the way of PROGRESS, per se, but maybe it's just too slow to see with the naked eye.

2. teaching/training the wazoo out of kaplan. and liking it.

3. lying awake at night worrying about things like this

4. considering my latest new career idea: a half-time residency. do i really want to be someone else's bitch for SIX years? apparently i do, if it means not working 80 hours per week when i want to be producing and caring for my (multiple) offspring

5. shopping: high brown boots that are trendy and ridiculous and fabulous, an emerald green preppy-but-cute cable-knit sweater, a gray blazer that apparently makes me look more 26 than 16, and new running shoes (brooks glycerin 4, if anyone was wondering)

6. running 50 miles per week in preparation for the philadelphia marathon in november

ok, i must go set up the ultimate couch conformation for desperate housewives, which starts in just 37 minutes (!).

    Hey, how about your dear old da?! I've GOT to be one of your most faithful followers!

  7. I am also a Ghost World reader. And would miss this page if it were to leave...

  8. Hey, I'm not a spammer...I found your site via Michelle Au's underwear drawer, and I saw in the comments you were an MD/PhDer too, so I thought I'd drop by. I'm a semi-blogger, so you shouldn't bore yourself with my very sporadic site, but it sounds like you and I are debating a lot of the same life issues. I'm starting my second year in the lab (after totally losing my first when my advisor moved to the Mayo Clinic) at Case Western Reserve Univ. in Cleveland. I thought it's funny you are in Durham--my husband, who's in construction, totally wants to live there! Anyway, totally random, but I thought I should say hi!

    Sarah! You can't quit blogging-- then what will motivate me to start my own blog about being a stressed-out nursing student who goes to lectures about Haiti and addiction for fun?

    Please be assured that I keep regular tabs on your blog-- I really missed you when you didn't write for nineteen days! What will I do if you stop writing altogether? (Probably go to more lectures about Haiti and addiction-- and I will blame YOU. YOU!)
