The funny thing about becoming a physician is that people never stop asking what you want to be when you grow up.  It’s a normal question in high school and college – everyone gets it.  Then you get to medical school, and you think, “Finally here!  I’m gonna be a DOCTOR when I grow up.”

Can we talk for a second about the fact that it’s the end of October?

This means I actually have to put “bake” on my To Do List. It’s bizarre and weird and I apologize that its affecting you.

Anyway. Hi! I’ve missed you!

Last week, thanks to the wonders of the Twitter-verse and La Casa de Sweets, I found out about an online bake sale hosted by Amanda at Kitchen Misfit.  Amanda is part of Team in Training, and she’s currently training for the Boston Marathon.  She’s hosting this bake sale to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and I think this is absolutely wonderful!  You can read about her training and why she’s doing this on her site.
