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
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 I’ve officially been on my Peds service for a full 2-days and I’ve already learned a lot! Kids are fun, parents are great, and the pace is nothing like the emergency room or even occupational health, which I just finished after 3 months. It’s definitely a welcomed change. 🙂 While my immune system is in overdrive attempting to keep me alive just long enough to see the … Continue reading Pediatric Tips & Tricks
Impulse purchase! Well not really. I’ve been thinking about the Nintendo Switch ever since it’s keynote on January 13th, 2017. It’s the newest gaming console, it’s unique, the N64 is my favorite video game system of all time and most importantly I love gaming on the sofa with my buddies. So naturally the Switch is a perfect fit: the console launched February 27th and is sold out everywhere till Easter, … Continue reading Nintendo Switch First Impressions!
I love car shows! I’ve been going to them since I was a kid. However, everything with time gets old. Same location, same cars, nothing jarringly exciting means your mind eventually goes numb to the experience. And it’s frustrating since I’ve attended great events over the years! The show I most frequently attended when I lived in Arizona was the Pavilion’s car show in Scottsdale, AZ (map). It takes place … Continue reading Scottsdale ‘Cars and Coffee’
So I’m currently drafting up my first teaching case (which I promised way back when) but it started taking too long so I’ll finish that later. However, I don’t want to not post something so here’s 2 Kris Bryant prank videos & another totally unrelated DIY video I enjoyed this week: (1) Reigning baseball MVP and World Series hero Kris Bryant thinks he’s shooting a baseball workout … Continue reading Kris Bryant Prank & DIY Modern Sofa
It’s exactly 364 days till I match and I’m already petrified. Where will I match? How high on my rank list will it be? Which program? Which state? Will I be near my family or in the middle of nowhere practice medicine on a buffalo? Once the ball starts rolling your brain doesn’t stop. It’s relentless. It’s a wheel constantly turning in the back of your … Continue reading The Anxiety of Match. It’s Real.
