My favorite holiday. Bitches.

There's nothing like Valentine's Day to make you acutely aware of how single you are. No matter how much you've got it GOIN' ON in your life, if you're single, this is the one day of the year where you're made to feel like an utterly worthless pile of shit because you don't have someone to shower you with bland commercialism in celebration of something you may or may not genuinely share. (Not that there's anything wrong with commercialism. I like me some Fannie May.) I don't begrudge people in relationships (one day I hope to be in one myself!) but I despise the fact that singletons are hung out to dry on this holiday. Well NO MORE! I say Take Back the Chocolate! And I will be. Taking back. Lots of chocolate.

In other news, I just finished my medicine subI (PRAISE JEBUS) and the greatest lesson I learned was that picking ob/gyn over internal medicine was the smartest decision I've made in my entire life. I'm back home now in C-town spending some time with the p-units before getting swamped in Boards, MPH thesis etc. I also recently made the decision to rank the program in St. Louis #1 for residency. I've received very nice messages from the residents and the faculty at that program and I think it'll be a good place for me to work hard and maybe have some fun. My parents are obviously psyched that I'll be so close to home - quoth my mother, "We'll have a ball!! You'll call me when you're free and we'll go SHOPPING and watch MOVIES!!" To which my dad replied, "She's doing residency, not joining a sorority." Hee.

Taking.the.chocolate.back!

I think this is what this holiday should be for us singletons! Thanks for writing so well and making me feel a bit better about this dumb single thing (is there something about being a med student not into med guys that destines you to singledom?) on valentines day!

Okay, this is really desi, but if you buy chocolate on Feb 15th it's cheaper :)

It will not succeed in reality, that's exactly what I think.
