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
ACEP is the greatest thing imaginable. Honestly I thought it would be good, but it was just freaking awesome. If you’re not Emergency Medicine (good for you. Less stress and literally years saved outside the walls of your local library/coffee shop) then let me explain: ACEP stands for the “American College of Emergency Physician” and they host a national convention. Once a year. Every year. … Continue reading ACEP 2021
So I’m a cheap-o at heart. People that know me will laugh and say “yeah right!“. While it’s true I loveee nice things, especially electronics, to overpay by even $1 on certain things is like the death of my unborn 1/2 step son. I vividly remember the exact moment I realized I was cheap. I was with my girlfriend. I was low on gas and … Continue reading Saving Money vs. Privacy
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.
A full year of residency DONE. Large accomplishments and small, they all meant something. I had a strange feeling year to say the least. In my intern year of my program I spent eight of the first nine months in the emergency department. The only non-ED month at the start was Anesthesia. AWESOME attendings who made me read A LOT. No joke. I never have … Continue reading Getting Learnt. LEGO! Toxicology Ep. 1
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!
Well… I’m back b*****s! Haha It’s been exactly 227 days since I made a post. And I would know since Google counted it for me. So much has happened since then! I’ve wanted to post. I wanted to blog, vlog, chat, scream, cry, celebrate… and not to lie I did all of those (except the first 2). And it was all due to the beast … Continue reading The Return of a Blogger. The challenge & a Promise.
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
