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…)
Hannah here, writing to you from a deep deep hole of sports depression.
As you know from CNN “breaking news” updates, Kate’s last post, and the Dick’s Sporting Goods commercial that aired in error yesterday encouraging me to go buy Rangers World Series Champions t-shirts…this has not been the easiest weekend for Texas Rangers fans. (more…)
