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…

Ending on a high note

So, tomorrow is that last day of my last elective in medical school. It’s kind of a non-milestone milestone.  I still have 8 weeks – 4 two week blocks – of selectives left, to say nothing of interviews and matching and the LMCC. It’s not like I’m done with medical school. Still, I found myself…

Halloween DIY

So, this year we got crafty for Halloween. I’ll not lie, Halloween isn’t a major holiday in our household. I don’t really do parties and I studied through the last couple, but given that I’ve been home for an OBs elective, it seemed like a good time to try out our crafting skills. Thus, I…

Post burnout thoughts

So, third year Med school kicked my a**. No use mincing words. I came out of my 5 weeks at the second hospital for Internal in a mentally and emotionally exhausted place. I was stuck in a thought spiral about getting old and dying, of loosing the people I loved to illnesses like the ones…

2016 Travel Journals: Berlin

*Mea Culpa, the blogging as I traveled thing just didn’t happen given how busy I was! So these journals were written on the trip, most retrospectively, with a couple written after I landed back in Canada. This was an utterly amazing trip, and I’m so excited to share it with you guys.* So, I got…

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child #keepthesecrets review

  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Het hem. So, I just watched Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and let me just say HOLY CRAP THAT WAS ACTUALLY THE BEST THING EVER OMG! So, I liked it 😉 I’ll say as a reminder, that Harry Potter was the defining book series of my adolescence.  I’m a huge Potterhead. I…

The last summer

So, I finished school for the year June 23th, which somehow seems so far away. Since then, I’ve been relaxing with my family; just taking life slow, sleeping in, video games with my sister and bonfires at the shore. It’s been a lovely little restorative break, which is certainly what I needed after school..and as…

Staycation Weekend

So, supremely late, but I promised the pics from my Victoria Day weekend with my family. It was a weekend of utterly gorgeous weather, some of the nicest we’ve had, and we hit the  local high lights: Then, because you can’t come to Newfoundland and not look for icebergs, we ended up following the tracker…
