Five years ago today, this is where Wife and I were - gettin' hitched. Now, she's an RN and I just finished my second year of medical school. Time is flying, and today was packed.
This morning, I took another NBME practice exam - more on that below - while Wife took Hobbes to the Dog Beach in Muskegon. When she came home, I took the afternoon off. It also included a scavenger hunt, complete with poem clues and hidden gifts. It was a ton of fun. We do the "traditional" anniversary gifts - a different material for each year. This year was the wood year, and it was the first year we actually made each other cry a bit with the meaning and emotion inherent in our gifts. I got her a carved figurine that has special meaning, and she got me a handmade/carved wooden bowl from the Holland Bowl Mill. I can't explain why it meant so much to me - it's just awesome. She personalized it with the wood-burned verse Ruth 1:16 around the edge - "Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay." on the top and "Happy 5 years!! Love, [Wife]" on the bottom. She gets me. It is good.
For the less fun news, brevity is best:
Took my 3rd 4-hour practice Step 1 exam today.
Score has gone up quite a bit, yet not enough quite yet.
I sort of wish I had a better idea of what my expectations should be during all this.
Sharing scores feels awfully... personal. So I'm not doing it.
At least not until it feels like Step 1 doesn't matter anymore. Then I might share.
I will say this: I want my score to go up.
