I got bit 7 times yesterday by mosquitoes: black fly - so now I’m covered in welts.
I hope the general public likes the smell of DEET at lunchtime.

When ur in the hospital and all ur co-residents around u start talking in Arabic …

And I’m like OMG cultural reunion :- get I get a shalom? … Or aufweidersehen? Or a hej hej?

…. I am not any of those.


Q
Physically? Are you talking fetish or in shape? haha. Also if you're talking in shape than I assume you like to stay in shape too? Because it's a two way street.

Q
How come you're so against dating doctors?

Well (physically) I have tendencies - that doctors are not (traditionally speaking.)
And Personality-wise - I don’t think my opposite-TypeA, naive beach-bum lifestyle meshes with the typical TypeA-impacts-clinical-practice scholarly Doctor.

Some people will change the world.
I just wanna have a good time.


There’s a guy sitting near me with B.O..
He is straight slaying me right now.

I knew I was old when I had no idea what Keek or Vine was.
I’m old fashioned.
Don’t call. Don’t email. Just text me.

I have crush with a resident at work. Please hit me with some things that I should actively consider as I pursue my interests with him.

Sorry. No. Advice.
I actively, purposefully and go out of my way to avoid dating doctors.

At. All. Costs.
don’t think I’ve ever found a doctor that I’ve ever wanted to bang. Except on tinder. Then I found out he was a doctor. So. I was immediately turned off.


This reminds me that I have a lot skin space. Vice.
Doctors without borders.

Q
Are doctors insensitives? I don't undestand how you deal with the pain.

Sure, there are some really jerky doctors out there who ARE insensitive. 

But on the whole, we’ve just become accustomed to seeing difficult things. 

I wouldn’t say that we deal with painful situations all the time. It really depends on what your specialty is and how much time you spend in the hospital. I really enjoy my job actually, and I see successes and happy things all the time. You have to focus on these things or medicine can wear you down.

As you progress in medical training, the things that used to be scary or sad become commonplace and you don’t react to them they way you first did. When you learn more about medicine, you start to focus more on the patients’ problems as an abstract or rational thing rather than as an emotional thing. This disconnect helps us get through when we do have difficult situations, but if we rationalize too much, we start having difficulty relating to patients.

But a doctor’s ability to ignore or rationalize or be numb to difficult situations does not necessarily carry over to their personal lives. We can deal with cancer patients all day and think nothing of it, but when a family member gets sick we still worry and mourn. 

Um. Like… So….It comes out in other ways…
Mainly getting tearful during a Puppy or baby, MasterCard or car commercials.


I want one of those gold silver metallic temporary tattoos.
$30… Worth it?

Hottest man I’ve seen all month is a construction worker at Starbucks.
He probably went to juvie or something.
Never seen a hot man in the hospital since- … I’ve never seen a hot man in the hospital.
