Caloric deception

Friday, October 31st, 2008

I’ve discovered why I’ve mysteriously gained a couple of pounds despite a lifestyle that should have resulted in weight loss. On my course days on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the building does not have good access to a microwave, so I have been buying my lunch. I went for the “healthy option” of buying salads, despite […]

This morning, I went to the farmer’s market with my friend. It was so much fun to check out the demonstrations, taste the food, and buy crazy weird organic heirloom vegetables and fruits. Then I rushed home to put stuff away, and headed out to buy my guqin.

My church back home had done some investigating for me and recommended a church near here. So I woke up early today to go check it out. I got there early enough to do some socializing and actually met some nice people! […]

You know what? I realize what it is now. After a whirlwind, stress-filled couple of years where every day was an adventure and lots of big things happened, it’s strange to really have no big things to accomplish every day. First it was learning the ropes in child neurology, then a year as Chief Resident […]
