When Life Gives You Lemons…

So I got this Anesthesia midterm exam tomorrow and I have no idea how it’s going to go down. All I’ve heard about the exams on this rotation is that they were ridiculously hard (apparently it’s all resident/fellow level material 😐) and that the questions on these exams were very nitpicky.

What’s just as amazing to me is that I’ve ACTUALLY managed to update […]

Evolution.

That extra hour that Daylight Savings gave me today was a glorious gift. I got to “sleep in” and I still got up at a very reasonable time to take full advantage of my day off! It feels great to wake up refreshed and know that you have the full day to do whatever you […]

New City, New Flow

Alright, let me start off by saying that I’m definitely going to be enjoying EVERY SECOND of my fourth-year up until the minute that I enter the hospital for my first shift as an intern next year, because if intern year is going to be even busier than I’ve already been during my first week of […]
