Cause or effect? And thoughts on value.

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

This migraine is so bad, I feel like my meninges are burning all around my brain, down the brainstem, and through the trigeminal nerves. It even burns to swallow, which is just so blech. I’m feeling generally weak. Which brings to question: was what I was feeling the past two days in fact what I […]

Angels are smiling

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

It’s when I need it most that God sends angels to help me. I’m forever grateful for this. Although I recognize this and appreciate it, this doesn’t mean that things are still difficult. I’m somewhat better today, but woke up with the most terrible migraine, and it has just gone on all day. Tylenol cuts […]

Cardinals outside my window

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

They came by to visit this morning. I certainly most needed a little colour.

By all accounts I should have been very happy today. A lot of people who care about me. Last night I worked late and didn’t get back to the residents’ room until past midnight, to find my friend had left me a […]

Running with perseverance

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

It’s become clear to me finally that I have been distracting myself from my goals this year. I really need to be concentrating on studying and applications and moving myself to San Francisco. As much as I wish things would go a certain way, I can’t spend all my time distracting myself.
Today’s sermon at church […]

It’s funny how quickly one gets used to doing certain things, and when they’re not around it’s like something is missing. I suppose studying is not exactly a satisfying replacement for anything.

Better plans…

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

Haha, so I suppose Nature/God/Fate/my subconscious knows better plans. I was all, “I’m going to the gym Saturday morning and then coming home to study and then going out at night,” but of course I was so exhausted and sleep deprived that I ended up sleeping until now (past noon) and then woke up and […]


Friday, November 23rd, 2007

So tired today. Study group yesterday, as always, went late and I didn’t get to bed until 1am. Then I managed to wake up around 2am and tossed for an hour - not entirely sure why. Then of course my alarm went off for 6:45am. I really need more sleep than this.
I think a combination […]

Happy Gobble Gobble to my American friends.
November has, over the years, secured its position as the most emotionaly involved month of the year for me. I fell in love with my current job and workplace in November. Secured my desire to do fellowship training in San Fran in November. And for some weird reason, relationships […]

Low endurance

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

Maybe I’m starting to get a little old for this. Or maybe it’s just the magnitude of this exam making my low endurance for marathon studying all the more painfully noticeable. I’ve always said that mentally I’m a sprinter and not an endurance runner. I work well in spurts, and then I need a break. […]
