To all about to see these letters, greetings.

So, I’m a doctor now. I’ve spent a lot of time moving towards this goal: about a third of my life spent in post graduate education moving towards getting this one piece of paper.  But, surprisingly, I spent very little of that time actually imagining what it would feel like to finally get there.  …

Anticipation

I like anticipation. I’ve found, as I get older, I enjoy anticipation more.  Christmas is the obvious example: you have all the build-up, all the the time and thoughts spent on that one day and then … it comes. And goes. That too, is another thing I’ve found as I get older.  The more you…

Winning Silver

So, I spent a little more than 2 weeks thinking about how to make this post.  Two weeks that, in many ways for many reasons, most good and some bad, felt much much longer.  I’ve talked here before about how I love OB/GYN, and that was the residency I was hoping to match to. I…

Shameless self plug ;)

So, the holiday season is coming up, and you know what makes a great gift? A scrub cap! Yes, this is the shameless self plug, roll with it 😉 Link to ETSY store But if you’re a geek, I bet I’ve got you covered! Star Wars Art Lovers Superheros Video Games Riverdale Or just a…

The Thirteen Core Commandments

So, a new crop of core clerks (third year clerks) are about to start, or perhaps have started already. And if you’re reading this post, you might be one of those clerks making the exciting and scary transition from classroom to hospital.  So, in that vein, from my jaded perspective of a CC4 (passed all…

Mad (scrub) cap adventures: Tardis in Wonderland

I’m not going to lie, I love this cap. It’s on my list for my favourite one so far – definitely in the top 3! – because it has so many things I like.  The colour scheme, the Doctor Who, London, the whimsy of Wonderland and it’s also kind of subtle…love it 🙂 I call…

Mad (scrub) cap adventures: “What’s Up Doc?” cap

So, there isn’t really a deep symbolism behind this cap.  Yes, I was a huge Bugs Bunny and Looney Tunes kid, but seriously, I think I would have bought this fabric even if I hadn’t been, because come on, has any fabric ever lent itself to this purpose better? I’m calling this the only thing…

Mad (scrub) cap adventures: Super Mario Brothers

As an admitted Nintendo child, Mario and Luigi were definitely a big part of my childhood. Mario Golf, Tennis, Kart, Party, Super Smash, and of course Super Mario are all games and franchises that I’ve got fond memories of.  So, when I started down this little rabbit hole of mine, I knew I wanted a…

Mad (scrub) cap adventures: Dr. Seuss’ “Oh the Places” cap

Look, it was bound to happen.  From being the book I took with me as a present from a friends mother when I moved provinces after my parents divorce, to the quotes I have on my 2 graduation rings, to the title of this blog, it’s probably clear that Dr. Seuss’ “Oh the Places You’ll…
