I've been thinking a little bit lately about how many years I've been keeping this space up, and how it has become, in many ways, a family scrapbook of sorts. Life with medical school has been challenging the last couple of weeks, and peeking back at posts from years past has proved a suprisingly good reminder that even if things don't get instantaneously easier or better, they at least get different. And that's something.
Then I saw today that Stephinie had a link on her blog to a post that she had written a year ago, just for the sake of fun and taking a little peek at the past. I decided to look back at my posts from August 24th of years past as well. It turns out that I actually had posts from this exact date from the last few years, and I thought that I would share a couple of them with you. And actually, by some sort of happy coincidence, both of the posts from the previous two years turn out to be ones that are kind of near and dear to my little blogging heart.
Somehow, I feel like that makes the act of reposting them less of a self-indulgent one.
