So, I have returned. The reasons why I let this blog fell by the wayside are varied. Moving into residency, time became an even more valuable commodity, and value judgements had to be made on what was going to be sacrificed. Earlier in medical school, back when I was quite active on this blog, one … Continue reading Oh the places you’ll go (as a resident)
So, after my 2013 MacBook Pro died unceremoniously about a month ago, I was left with a quandary; buy new or put in the money to repair the old one? Now, obviously this is the biggest first world problem ever, and yes, obviously I could just buy a PC, but look, I like the Mac … Continue reading I bought an 8 year old MacBook…should you?
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. … Continue reading To all about to see these letters, greetings.
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 … Continue reading Anticipation
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 … Continue reading Winning Silver
So, this week I tried HelloFresh, the delivery grocery/meal plan service that is available in Canada and the USA. As such, I thought I'd review that experience. (Also, this isn't an ad. I would totally take a sponsorship if it was available though 😉 ). But, seriously, as an introduction, let me first set the … Continue reading A HelloFresh review
So, Happy New Year!! Gosh, 2018, can you imagine it? 2017 seemed strangely long for a year, both globally and personally, so it was both a relief and a strange sadness to see 2017 pass by. 2018 is a year of big milestones personally for me; matching to a residency (knock on wood), graduating med … Continue reading New Years Resolutions
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 … Continue reading Shameless self plug 😉
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 … Continue reading Ending on a high note
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 … Continue reading Halloween DIY
