Crazy Season

This little guy looks just about how I feel at the moment.
Some of you may have noticed, but I haven't been posting very frequently. The normal end-of-year craziness seems to be hopped up on Monster this year; both work and school seem to be busier than normal. A new software and hardware implementation at work means I've been working overtime almost every day for the past week. Normally, it's just a couple hours longer than normal, but I ended up coming in for six hours on Sunday night, then working a 13-hour shift yesterday from 1pm - 2am. YIKES. Add to that all the projects / papers / labs that are coming due this week before exams happen next week, and you've got one busy Justin. My interview at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is a week from Friday, which is sort of a light at the end of the tunnel; I'll be taking a vacation day (and a half!) from work, stay at a hotel, experience another medical school, and meet some great people. I can't wait!

I promise I will try to update a bit more once things calm down a bit. Till then, gifts and well-wishes in the form of coffee and other caffeinated beverages will be warmly received.

Awh, nice picture! Hang in there, you're doing great! You've been here before and made it through with flying colors! Just more learning experiences to put under your belt! The next break, whenever THAT is, will be that much sweeter :)
