Needle Stick (the good kind)

Friends, Romans, countrymen... readers... potential lovers:

The good news is, I don't have Hepatitis B.

That I learned while completing my immunization update regimen required by all new entries to med school. Fortunately for me, I got a few of the necessary shots back before I went to Nigeria in '03 so this limited my required needle pricks to 3: a TB test (don't have that either), a Hep B blood screen, and a MMR vaccine.

A week or two ago I had sushi with a friend who just finished his first year in med. He told me that first year - first semester, more specifically - is pretty much a breeze. Enjoy the social life, he told me. So I plan to.

Until then, I'll continue enjoying my summer.
