Ah.....the 3 day weekend.....what a great institution! I will be so nice to chill at home and to do things with friends. I don't even mind that I have some homework I need to do for school; most of the assignments are actually kind of fun. My big chore will be to block out any thoughts or worries about work. For these three days, the hospital must cease to exist!

It always seems that when I am handling things reasonably well, I add something in (often completely frivolous) to make my juggling act that much more difficult.
Work and school are busy, but they are actually quite manageable right now. At least in theory. For some reason I have felt the need to a new computer game to my life. I do love games....especially the fantasy/role-playing sorts. It is so easy for it to become an obsession and time-suck. It is not killing me yet in terms of time management, but I am sure that will come.

I grew up reading science fiction and fantasy. I loved being transported to different worlds and learning about strange and unique cultures. I particularly enjoyed reading stories about alien planets and alternate dimensions. I wished I would have the chance to bounce between these different realities.
Jumping ahead a few decades, I have certainly had a healthy dose of reality. I think everyone lives in multiple worlds.....work, home, extended family, friends, etc. The distinctness of these many worlds has been very pronounced for me over the last year and a half as I have tried to balance my home life and relationship, my medical practice, and the master's program in interior design. I try to juggle everything with aplomb, but I think I often don't do justice to everything that I have committed.
