A Day in My Medical Student's Life

Since it is pretty obvious on our blog what I spend most of MY days doing, I think it's only fair that I do a post about how Josh spends his time here in Grenada.  Afterall, this is "The SCURLOCK Scene" and not "The STEPHANIE Scene."  Although, I have to say, my life is MUCH more exciting.

7:00am:  The alarm goes off and Josh is up and getting ready for school.  This usually includes a bowl of cereal and two cups of coffee and ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning.

7:15:  I roll out of bed to make Josh's lunch (Turkey or Tuna sandwhich, chips, apple, drink, and cookies).

7:45:  Josh is driven to school by me!  And sometimes we pick up friends along the way.

8:00-10:00:  Microbiology lectures.

10:00-12:00:  Pathology lectures. (AKA: the class from H-E-Double Hockey Sticks).

12:00-1:00:  Josh gets to eat the lunch I packed for him.  Sometimes complete with a cute note from yours truly (I'm such an amazing wife).

1:00-5:00:  Either Pathology Lab Group or CPD (some kind of clinical skills class).
5:00-5:15:  Josh either takes the SGU bus home or an attractive, blonde, California girl with a great tan picks him up in her cute white Toyota Corolla named Toby.  :)

5:15-7:00:  Josh holes up in his Man Cave and studies while the attractive blonde prepares dinner.

7:00-8:00:  He finally takes a much needed break to spend some quality time with me and eats his fabulously tasty dinner and raves about what a great cook I have become.

8:00-10:30 or 11:00ish:  Back to the Man Cave for more studying.

11:00-11:45ish:  Finally able to get ready for bed and spend 30 minutes or so watching a movie in bed with me (it takes us like a week to get through one movie).

11:45pm:  Lights out.

Sounds like a really exciting life right?  And it only gets worse when midterms or finals are approaching.  It's no wonder he's never able to do any of the fun stuff that I am up to.  But he doesn't typically complain.  Medical School is a lot of work, but he IS enjoying it, for the most part.  He is learning new stuff all the time and every day he feels like he is getting closer to becoming a doctor.  I am proud of all the hard work he puts into school.  I sometimes don't know if I could do what he is doing, but I guess that's why he is the one in school.  The next set of tests are in three weeks, so say a prayer for Josh that all is hard work will pay off and he will do well on them.  No one ever said medical school would be easy!
