It’s that time again in Michigan. That time, about mid-way through the summer, when it becomes glaringly apparent why I moved here (besides that thing about residency). You can pick ALL the things yourself.
Here in Michigan we’re experiencing a heat wave. It was 30 degrees today! There were enough minutes of sunlight that I may have made a small dent in my massive vitamin D deficit.
(Someone should figure out a way for hospital lighting to give you vitamin D. Help the staff! Help the patients! Vitamin D for everybody!) (more…)
Do you know anybody in Ann Arbor, Michigan?
I don’t either. But I’ll be moving there in June to start my Medicine/Pediatrics residency at University of Michigan! After all that traveling and all those interviews and all that contemplating about lists and ranks and cities and hospitals…4th med students all over the country found out where they’ll be for residency for the next few years. (more…)
YOU GUYS I’M HOME.
Like, HOME home. I know you’ve all been wondering to yourselves, where’s Hannah? (False.) What could she possibly be doing that’s more interesting than the blog? (Not much.)
Despite all rumors to the contrary, I was not in fact traveling the world. (There were no rumors.) I WAS traveling the country. Not on like a cool RV-type old-fashioned style road trip. On planes. And uber rides. And random public transport. And taxis and shuttles and moving sidewalks. (more…)
I’ve realized important two things.
First, I don’t eat enough bagels. From a health standpoint, I’m sure I eat enough bagels. There’s probably not a daily recommended allowance of bagels, although there should be, and it should be 5. When I got home from the hospital Sunday morning, I stood in front of my fridge for far too long, trying to figure out why I didn’t want to eat anything that was inside (aside from the fact that there’s basically just eggs and string cheese in there). (more…)
Whew. What a title, right?!
I made this cake for my old Roomz and another good friend from law school after they reminded me that it had been a really long time since they had eaten anything “Kate baked.” So, like, maybe I went overboard trying to impress them is what I’m trying to say…
Isn’t it weird how things happen like that, though? You spend three years seeing a person every day and sharing fridge space and borrowing eggs and telling each other to “PLEASE EAT SOME OF THOSE COOKIES SO I DON’T EAT THREE DOZEN BY MYSELF.” And then, one day, you stop doing that. And suddenly, it’s been six months since your old Roomz has eaten anything you’ve baked.
Ugh, change. Amirite?!
Where in the world does the time go? I’ve been planning this blog post since the end of December and now… it’s the end of January?
Anyway, HAPPY 2014!!! In honor of the new(ish) year, here are Kate’s 14 Things for 2014.
