one more week til D1/D2 summa!

One thing sad about summer is that the television shows I sneaked in between dental school studying are on hiatus. (Thankfully The Levo League put together a list of oldies TV shows I can watch and learn about being a professional women from.)

Clockwise from top L: Nikita, The Mindy Project, Suburgatory, Modern Family

Of course that doesn’t mean I don’t want summer to start. I’m excited about being free to plan my days out however I want, without classes or studying or clinic obligations. But I still plan on having some structure and routine... I like this from last week’s Brain Pickings: Seth Godin on separating needless routines from constructive and creativity-promoting ones:

The strategy is simple, I think. The strategy is to have a practice, and what it means to have a practice is to regularly and reliably do the work in a habitual way.

There are many ways you can signify to yourself that you are doing your practice. For example, some people wear a white lab coat or a particular pair of glasses, or always work in a specific place — in doing these things, they are professionalizing their art.

To get myself “in the zone”, I’ll be starting with some iced coffee while possibly still wearing my pajamas…

What television shows are you sad to see on hold this summer?
Any summer TV/movie suggestions?

    1. At our end-of-the-year luncheon several people were talking about that show! Like they love watching it online so they can "pause" and think what's going to happen. I'll check it out!
