I have just one more term to go, with two clinic shifts and an excellent elective (advanced gynecology). I'll have time to get in shape again! I have gotten soft from sitting in class so much. I thought I was going to be taking boards this coming February, but I'll be taking them in August, most likely here in Portland. I've started to enjoy Portland more in the last year. I met some great people and started to kayak the incredible whitewater in the region. It's going to be hard to leave. I love Portland and my friends and patients here, but I am not a city girl. I need to get out to where I can walk in the forest and play in the snow, and hear the sounds of nature instead of buses, trucks, trains and neighbors.
