But You’re In Canada!

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

An international fellow who recently arrived here in our program said that. It’s really quite sad how there is no money to fund an annual resident work-related event that costs maximum $50/person. And these days we’re supposed to be all virtuous and not accept pharmaceutical donations. Meanwhile, any other profession lives very happily charging social […]

Happy Birthday, Nephew#2

Sunday, March 25th, 2007

My 2nd nephew (no name yet) was born early this morning. 8.5 lbs. Gonna go visit him later. :)


Saturday, March 24th, 2007

I have not gone shopping in a long, long time. That being January. Nor have I gone to the gym in a long, long time. That also being January. And I haven’t done Pilates in a long, long, long, long time. That being June 2006.
So today I hauled my ass to the gym early and […]

Strange Feeling

Monday, March 19th, 2007

It’s a very strange feeling when an ex-boyfriend you still care about has a new girlfriend.
It’s like watching other people moving into your childhood home. Back in med school when I lived in my own apartment downtown, it was a comfort to go back to visit my old place, sleep in my childhood bed. Even […]

Jumpy’s Yummies!

Sunday, March 18th, 2007

I recently had a single-serving package of “Jumpy’s Chicken,” which is a potato puffy snack of mini kangaroos, tasting like chicken. They also have BBQ and salted versions, but the Chicken flavour is the yummiest.
Too bad can’t buy it here in Canada. :(
Let me know if you see it! Try it!

Seeing Double

Sunday, March 18th, 2007

I have been working overdrive all weekend trying to get through this neurooncology chapter for study group on Monday night, “chained” myself to the chair until 3am every night, that now I’m practically seeing double.
Didn’t get to go shopping as I hoped… :( Hopefully next week.

What I am learning is that the monthly blues has nothing to do with the migraines. Man, this feeling sucks.
I want a Wii.


Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

While I’m being swept away by my career goals, meanwhile life happens for everyone else. Everyone I know is getting married, having children… The guy I had the longest running crush on recently had a baby. My last boyfriend has a new girlfriend. Meanwhile, where am I?
The people in years ahead of me in my […]

What’s interesting about the riboflavin, is that since taking it, I’ve felt more energy, less headaches (barely traces of tension headache after a very busy day only), even some weight loss I think… and somewhat lower blood pressure (don’t know why that is).
However, unfortunately, it doesn’t take away my PMS blues…
Can you believe this is […]

Beautiful Day

Sunday, March 11th, 2007

This morning I was a little leary of the early change to daylight savings time. But now it’s 6pm and beautiful sunny. I think I’ve changed my mind about it. What a lovely day, and how nice it is to be out of the hospital on time to experience it.
I’ve been on call all weekend, […]
