where credit is due

30 Sep

In my last post, I mentioned that I thought my conversation with the standardized patient went okay.  First of all, I have plenty of room for improvement.  However, for the times during which I asked pertinent open-ended questions, allowed for brief silences, restrained myself from interrupting, and displayed general conversational competence, I really have the Y’s & HMC to thank.  Over ten years of being a Ya-Ya, and a lifetime to go.  I’m still consistently non-threateningly socially awkward, but I’d like to think that I listen and communicate better because of my relationships with these good people.
