Catchup Time! It’s been ~3 weeks since I last wrote. Feels like 6 months. A lot has happened and hasn’t. My friend that was visiting left, I took a spontaneous roadtrip to a drift event, explored multiple awesome college universities (many of which I’ve never seen before), I saw friends/family, my car broke down, FREAKIN’ TWICE, and then the unexpected happened: my uncle got really … Continue reading The Passing of a Legend & Motivational Tuesday
I’m constantly on Amazon. They must literally have millions of my dollars. Every year when I have to pay for Amazon Prime I cringe. I scream. I’m so mad. $120/year of THAT?! Then like 3-days later I’m ordering ~42 things from them, arriving the next day, and I’m like “good good. Best purchase of my life (again). So glad I have Prime. Never would I … Continue reading Favorite (2021) Amazon Purchases
So I’m furious right now. Nothing seems to have gone my way the last week-ish. It’s all wildly first world problems but mannn, they just keep coming! I ordered several of the wrong things on Amazon, I break my TV trying to install a soundbar (which I absolutely didn’t need), my mortgage check bounced anddd I sliced the tip of my finger open while installing … Continue reading Musical Picks For All The Reasons
Well hey there. Thought you left. Well all jokes aside it’s been… a time. Residency over. Graduated! Would you believe that? I snapped my fingers, slept for a total of 4 hours over 3 years, missed about every important life event from 2018-2021 and well shucks, I’m a real doctor now? Kinda crazy. Well I do feel bad. 99.42% of this blog is to check … Continue reading 2021. It’s Time.
Man I suck. I remember writing my last post titled “The Return of a Blogger. The challenge & a Promise“. I was trapped in a Subaru dealership in Mesa, Arizona. I had literally nothing to do, no rental car, a thousand thoughts zipping through my mind and my laptop. Oh it was on. I was going to write a blog post that day or die. … Continue reading The Return of a… HEY!
Today is a memorable day on rotation. Seeing new patients, diseases, interesting pathology and above all thankfully some down time. My attending did an amazing thing today. He tasked us not with the usual “look up this disease process for tomorrow and present it”, which is all too familiar to us medical students. Instead he asked the 3rd year and myself “have you read Dr. … Continue reading Doctoring Depression
For all intensive purposes this movie should’ve sucked. It is all the pieces to create another Hollywood flop: overused main actors, generic storyline, slightly lengthy runtime, no particular reason to see this movie over the other far superior cinematic experiences currently available at the box office nearest you AND with the release date at the end of summer which artificially makes all life events seem … Continue reading The Hitman’s Bodyguard: “When life gives you shit, make Kool-Aid” – 9/10
So tomorrow is the end for me. I’ve been on my pediatric rotation now for 2 weeks, seen a lot of interesting cases, worked in both an outpatient clinic and an peds emergency room (thank you site for offering that!) but tomorrow I start in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) under a (supposedly) intense attending who’s out for medical student blood! So far my medical … Continue reading Dropping NICU Knowledge, PIMP City
Contrary to my last theater film (John Wick 2) I went into this one expecting not to like it. It’s a Disney remake for crying out loud. The original is great and there’s zero reason to mess with it and make a verbatim live action, Emma Watson infused, follow up. (Besides being an blatantly obvious money grab of course!) So I had my doubts as well as zero … Continue reading ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Magical AF – 9.5/10
I wanted to like this movie. No, I wanted to LOVE this movie. Every male around me who’s seen it raves about it! My father, my classmates, even the random dude I talked to in an Uber last week all say the same thing: “This movie is ‘Merica. From start to finish there’s death and destruction and you’ll absolutely get your money’s worth!” So did I … Continue reading ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’, Action Does Not Replace Laziness – 6/10
