Oof. We are nearly 2 months into intern year, and I can’t believe it.
Passage of time, y’all. It’s a real thing. Most days of this job are pretty fantastic. I’m surrounded by incredibly intelligent people who all know more than me about medicine. I’ve met some amazing patients who I want to keep visiting every day even when I’m not on their service anymore. Half of my patients so far have been babies who don’t know who I am and don’t care because I’m not the person who feeds them, but that’s fine. (more…)
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. (more…)
Usually, I feel like Christmas break is almost too long. Like I get bored and feel like it’s been ages since I stepped foot on campus. I do not feel this way this week. Alas, school doesn’t ask me about these things (though, it totally should).
Since I have seven days of nothingness left, I’m making a To Do list.
Is there a class I can take about weddings? Specifically, a class or a book that will tell me all of the very basic questions that people expect me to the know the answers to, even though the wedding is 2 AND A HALF YEARS AWAY?
I went with my mom to look at a possible place to get married. (I believe that’s called a venue? Seriously. Need help.) This outing wasn’t as embarrassing as a few weeks ago when I met this lady who likes to plan weddings on the side. At that little meeting, I informed her that I thought we would probably have 4 ushers “on each side.” (more…)
