The Bird in Flight
How we spend our days...

I've taken a lot of pictures at the Rockefeller Center over the years, pretty much every time I've been to New York in winter. Yet somehow I never tire of it.
It's kind of a busy shot, but at least it's colorful.
So my short little trip to the east coast. It was awesome seeing Amit and the Gearys (Gearies?). I have to say thanks again for them hosting me and spending time with me, despite both Amit and Dan having pretty insane work schedules during the time of my visit. Anyways, hopefully more to come later.
Yes, still alive... it has been nearly 6 weeks since I've posted in earnest, eh? It's not so much that I'm busy as much as things have stabilized. My residency-hating has mostly abated, seeing as now I'm in the middle of my vacation. It's amazing how much perspective you can get when you get enough sleep. It's nice to feel happy in my residency choice, something that's taken less time than I really expected. I remember college didn't truly feel comfortable until 3rd year, and med school until 2nd year. Maybe I'm adapting faster.
Anyways, the photo above is from about a month ago, I think. Kiran had vacation, so he and Sandeep flew out from the east coast to Vegas, and Eric and I met up with them there. Leaving Friday after work, we didn't really get there until almost midnight... We found them in the Venetian rather drunk, and I'm not ashamed to say we might have joined them in the festivities. I managed to break the glass on my first drink, a testament to Kiran's drinking prowess (he chose the drink, after all). We wandered around the casino, and I watched Eric and Kiran play War. Yes, that stupid card game we all used to play when we were young and bored. Despite my mockery, they managed to win some money. 'deep didn't fare so well at roulette.
So anyways, we ended up in a cheesecake factory inside the casino, and we ordered beer. The remainder of the night was a bit of a blur. Suffice to say, we got kicked out and apparently we're no longer welcome at the Venetian... Next thing you know we're walking along the interstate-15 at 4 am trying to figure out a way to cross back to the side where we were staying. We did eventually find the hotel, and crashed, and hence Kiran above.
Sadly, we had to drive back after sampling the lunch buffet. I don't think we were even in Vegas 12 hours, but I was on-call the next day, after all. Medicine wards no less...
Anyways, seeing as I'm on vacation, I should take some new pictures! Particularly since my camera broke, and I got a shiny new one. Gotta love extended warrantees...
here are some photos from after my EM month, went down to hatteras with friends. this is pretty much me at my happiest, just out of the water after getting pummelled by 10 foot waves!
we stayed at a beautiful campsite called frisco woods (for randall's sake i should clarify that its the east coast frisco) which actually is on the west coast of hatteras island, on pamilco sound. my bro tommy was juggling fire sticks, which i found immensely entertaining.
here are four of us heading out at about 645 for "dawn patrol" at a beach south of the lighthouse. from left in this loch-ness-monster-style photo are jon, adam, myself, and tommy. by the ways i must give credit to kendra for this photo, and jon for the top photo. as you guys can probably see from my entry, I LOVE FOURTH YEAR! i know next year as an intern my life will just be one butt-kicking after another, but i might as well enjoy this one while it lasts...true, kevin?
