Writing weekends

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

It seems I am only blogging on weekends these days. Actually this week wasn’t entirely as busy as the previous ones, but still… perhaps out of habit.
I bought a new computer. My old one is about 5-6 years old, but I had been waiting for Windows Vista. Now that Vista is only coming out […]

Victoria Day…

Monday, May 22nd, 2006

It was Victoria Day today, but it was way too cold to plant anything. Traditionally this is the weekend in Canada when everyone goes out and plants stuff. But it was bitter cold and windy.
Bummed around in the morning after a big breakfast. Then went to Lai Wah Heen for dim sum. That was seriously […]

Good tired

Sunday, May 21st, 2006

Really tired right now. Not entirely sure why.
Long weekend here in Canada - Victoria Day on Monday. But I was on-call Friday-Saturday. I lucked out because it was a very light two days on-call. Slept a TON. Had time to do the Chief Resident duties I was planning to do today. Got them out of […]

Weekend again!

Saturday, May 13th, 2006

I guess I’ve been less regular in my blog postings these past few weeks. Work has been really busy, in that most days end up easily being 12 hours of work - not even counting the nights/weekends on call. Needless to say, that doesn’t result in much time to post blog entries.
On top of regular […]

Glad it’s weekend

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

What a relief that it’s weekend again. Work has been busy, in that I don’t ever seem to get out of the hospital before 6:30pm, often later. Luckily, my last few calls have been relatively easy to handle.
I need to start thinking about all the other things I need to work on right now. […]


Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006

The right description of how I felt was best realized when our Chief resident mentioned to me this afternoon that I would be covering for both teams tomorrow, and to call him if I “felt overwhelmed”. Well Chief, I wanted to say, I already feel overwhelmed, so I might as well just call you now.
It’s […]
