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…)

Real talk: I, Kate, am an obsessive person.

When I find something I like, I let it consume me. Until I find the next thing I can’t live without. I know that moderation is supposed to be the key to happiness or something like that. But I just don’t work that way. At all.

Let’s talk about some things I’m super in love with lately.


Brown Sugar, Maple, and Pecan Pound Cake

Life has been weird lately.

You see, it all started when I ran out of my perfume. It was a limited edition scent. so there was no way I could buy the same stuff and keep wearing it. I’ve worn that scent for the past six years. To give you some context: Ever since The Accountant has known me, I’ve smelled like that. Like seriously, he didn’t know I wore perfume for the first few years we dated. He just thought that was how I smelled.

Needless to say, I’m having a bit of an identity crisis now.

So, I’m writing this post.

I think we can all agree that writing this post is not studying for Wills and Estates.

Which means that I am doing pretty much the opposite of what I should be doing right now.

What has me in such a rebellious, study-schedule-defying mood?

It’s my roommate, my second of two friends, my hip attachment’s 24th birthday today. So she gets a blog post. And it’s gonna be all Roomz all the way.
