There’s no other word for it; I am in a muddle of Lucy Honeychurch proportions. Today’s the deadline to request a site for one rotation next year, and I’ve no idea what to choose. Do I want surgery in upstate New York? But my preferred schedule has surgery first, and it might be bad to start on such a difficult rotation in a totally new environment. Or how about neurology here? But most people get neuro here anyhow, so it would be a waste of my request. What about medicine away — the Connecticut site has great teaching, I hear, but I hate traffic.
The sad thing is, I know that this has no real bearing on anything, and still I lost sleep.
