That's right. I want a "do over." I want to start afresh. But, not really.

You see, I've been tossing and turning in bed for hours, unable to sleep, because I fear that I did not pass Step 1. Being the sleep-deprived medical student that I am, I should be sleeping soundly now that that hypertension-, palpitations-, diarrhea-inducing examination is behind me, right?

Au contraire, mon frere!

Instead of catching up on my Z's, I've been doing the whole "coulda, woulda, shoulda" thing -- with some "shouldn'ta" thrown in for good measure. I could have been more disciplined. If I had a couple more days to study, I would have been able to answer more questions -- correctly. I should have studied more. I shouldn't have been so engaged in the presidential primaries. I shouldn't have watched all those episodes of Top Chef, Hell's Kitchen, The F-Word, The Office, Grey's Anatomy, Project Runway. . .

But, alas, we can't turn back the clock. What's done is done. And, frankly, I wouldn't want to go through the misery of the past couple months ever again.

Cheer up. Hopefully you will do just fine. I read your post on TV shows, it was very funny. From time to time I get addicted to certain shows too. We need to learn how to control our cravings.

Oh, and YouTube, I probably watched 2,000 videos over there, OMG!

LOL. Oh, yes. I've been stuck in too many YouTube holes.

Thanks for the support, YS.
