Plastics is of course notoriously hard to match in to. The match rate for most specialties is well above 80%. For plastics, it's under 50%, meaning that less than half of people who want to become plastic surgeons out of med school do so. Whatever, if you're super-driven to pursue something, you just go for it and make it happen. I have to say, the more I learn about the business of medicine, the more surprised I am by the variety of work that falls under the purview of this profession. As a physician, you could do anything from sit at home looking at slides of cells to threading electrodes in to peoples hearts. Crazy.
This is me ------------>
I've been working on my pecs and bi's and tri's. Curls, pull-ups, and of course, moustache-ups. At the time this photo was taken, I was simultaneously trying to break the chain in my hands and break the wind from my butt. And doing a moustache-up.
<-------------This is Heavy Metal Vixen (and, I believe, an example of hardcore porn from the 30's)
She's been doing a lot of cardio. Eliptical, jogging, and biking. This is an actual photo of her biking. I have suggested a more practical outfit, spandex or something, but she insists that the stockings and stilettos improve circulation to her extremities. I don't know about all that, although it definitely improves circulation to one of MY extremities. heh.
