Apparently we now only eat things with pumpkin in them here. Has pumpkin fatigue set in yet? Is that a thing?
Also apparently it is in fact true that I will eat anything with nutella in it. I don’t even usually like pumpkin pie (sorry/not sorry). But once I decided to add nutella? Yes. Will eat. No question. Continue reading
Can we talk for a second about the fact that it’s the end of October?
I know it’s the end of October because of these things:
1. We turned our AC off a few days ago…and maybs won’t have to turn it on again? Actually this is more typical of December in Texas, but we’ll take it. Continue reading
So Kate started her real life recently. Meanwhile, I started my pretend real life. This is the time when medical students go from study-study-study in the 1st 2 years to…work-work-study-study in the 3rd year. We get to pretend to be doctors and most days it’s the best.
For the past 6 weeks, I’ve been pretending to be an ob/gyn. There have been babies. There have been ladies (like, all ladies obvs). There have been…other things involved in ob/gyn that we don’t need to talk about. It’s been preeetttyyy awesome. Continue reading
So, I’m on my OB/Gyn rotation right now. On the OB part with the babies. And the thing is that OB’s work a lot. Like…a lot.
The main problem with this is not the loss of sleeping hours, although that is sort of a sad thing. The main problem is that when you get up really early and your day is really long, you’ve created these extra meal times. Continue reading
Today (and pretty much every day of my life lately) I settled into a booth at a coffee shop to
feel increasingly bad about my intelligence study. (Like, I get that the Sample Answers to these practice questions are written by professionals with unlimited time and also access to law books. But also, it feels super terrible to miss half of what the Sample Answer brings up. So THANKS.)
Over the next few hours, I couldn’t believe people around me. They had the audacity to live and breathe and interact in my presence. What’s that even about?! I’M STUDYING OVER HERE.
I had a major revelation a few days ago. Like, this stuff should be sewn on pillows, painted on posters, written in cards. I figured out what true love is.
Whaaaaaat. That sounds so deep. It’s not deep, I promise. There’s all these poems that try to say what love is, lots of songs, probs some drawings or collages or whatever. On the Bachelorette (yes, actually), they say things like, “Love is like these clouds and this is the greatest day of my life.” Or “Love is like this race car and I’m on a rollercoaster of emotions (?)” “Love is like this rug, soft and multicolored and kind of stripe-y.”
Stuff like that. Continue reading
Wanna know something rad?
Monday night, I wanted to see my best friend Hannah. So… we just
called (who are we kidding? texted) each other and made plans to see each other. She came over, brought The Weatherman, and we all hate-watched The Bachelorette over one-too-many cocktails. (JK. Never too many cocktails).
I tell you what. This whole Living in the Same City as Your Best Friend thing is the best.
