Only when it’s convenient

Thursday, September 30th, 2004

Ugh. I hate it that I’m considered a “neurology resident” by the adult neurology residents only when it suits them. In other words, when there is work to do that “you should do because you are a neurology resident”. But of course, if there’s any perks like parties or teaching or generally being included in […]

Cram time

Thursday, September 30th, 2004

OK. I need rules to make sure I’m making best use of my time to study. From now until exam day (October 23), these are the only things I’m allowed to do. Please let me know if you think I’m not adhering to them.
1. Study
2. Work - and study in free time
3. Sleep - more […]

Wish list

Wednesday, September 29th, 2004

Well, as per conversations with Macfixer, he decided to start an Amazon Wish List. Then he asked me if I was starting one. Got me thinking that, in fact, I couldn’t really make an Amazon Wish List, because the things I want are either not yet available for purchase, or no longer available for purchase. […]

Autumn moon

Tuesday, September 28th, 2004

Today is the Chinese Autumn Moon Festival. Eighth month, 15th day of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. I dunno what got into my dad, who insisted this year to have a bite of mooncake and enjoy the full moon on my sundeck. LOL. Well, it’s full alright.
Today work ended late. Mostly because we started rounding with […]

Big supper

Monday, September 27th, 2004

Guess what? Another study day down the tubes. :p Slept in, made lunch, then somehow had the afternoon sucked into a black hole (where did it go?!), and then it was supper time with the family. My uncle was in town, so we all went out for supper. Plus, I was celebrating my brother’s birthday […]

Weather N/A

Sunday, September 26th, 2004

Courtesy of The Weather Network, the weather for October 2 is “not applicable”. I find that mildly disturbing.

Pilates

Saturday, September 25th, 2004

I just got back from a Pilates class. There just hasn’t been much time to get to one of these classes of late. Just that they’re at specific times, and it’s not always the best time for me. And during the summer, a whole bunch of classes got cancelled, so it got frustrating to make […]

Warmer than summer

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2004

Hello. So today was apparently first day of autumn. It didn’t feel that way though. It’s warmer today than it’s been the last while… heck warmer than most of the summer actually. So I treated myself afterwork to a mascarpone-flavoured gelato on a waffle cone. Actually I asked for the regular cone, but the lady […]

Diary-style

Tuesday, September 21st, 2004

Dear Blog,
Today sucked. I have such nasty call karma. What is up with this?! I used to have the best call karma in medical school. Of course it had to be today, the day the other resident on the team (half the team!) had to be away for her half-day away. So I get swamped […]

Come to think of it…

Monday, September 20th, 2004

….you know what’s weird? I was thinking back to before January 2002, I don’t even remember any of my migraines. Heck, I was practically inhaling chocolate back then.
I remember carrying around 2 Tylenol in my jeans pocket all the time in highschool and joking that just keeping it in my pocket prevented headaches. After that, […]
