Raspberry Pecan Blondies

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…)

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…)
