“Whenever there is somebody in scrubs at the supermarket…”—
I have this long dialogue in my mind of whether they are a Dental assistant, med tech, a nurse, an annoying medical student who wants to look cool- and in the rare case- if they look only half-alive a post-call resident
… your dirty cdiff/oral-bacteria sleeve is hovering over the Whole Foods salad bar. Thanks.
“I’ve got a collection of loose clothes that are a bit too big on me.. And I’ve not yet rid of them- in the thinking that, “well, if I’m ever pregnant- I probably could wear them.””—Really. I’m nowhere close to pregnant.
And, I should just try clothes on before I buy them.
“I hate when girls complain about how pretty they are- like how people assume they are ditsy because they are pretty.”—Girrrrllll. I got a backhand that will fix that problem right up for you. Just- Keepin it real.
“The older I get. The less I care. The more selfish/aware I am of what I want. And unfortunately for others and mostly myself, the more dangerous I have become.”—Destructive decisions are always and forever a choice. And sometimes, that’s just the lifestyle we are most comfortable with- whatever gets us to the other side.
“The thing is… People used to give me things for free when I was younger.
Not major $$ things. But like at restaurants or cafés; small things on the house all the time..”—And the thing is… I wish I realized the power of the appeal I had in those days… To really work that .. I regret not being more daring when I was young.
“I use to smoke. (Still like to occasionally.)
Now I cough whenever someone lights- even if apparently they are 20ft away.. (I didn’t even see/smell him?)”—This doctor life is too clean. Or. I’m getting old.
“Most people know that going into medicine to get rich is a mistake in multiple dimensions. Unless you’re into writing ethically dubious diet books or making ethically dubious TV shows. But in the face of a potentially staggering physician shortage—the Association of American Medical Colleges warns of a deficit of 130,600 doctors by 2025—people who want to go into medicine (particularly primary care) have to envisage financial viability in their grand mission. At $51,000 before taxes, a doctor working 80 hours per week for 48 weeks per year earns $13.28 hourly.”—A Junior Doctor’s Salary - The Atlantic The truth about doctors’ salaries. (via hartmd)
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen my dad laugh. Like… chuckle, sure. A giggle once in a while- maybe.
But really laugh? I don’t think in my entire life so far.”—Imma change this next time I’m home.
It would really mean something.
Why were you turned off by that doctor on tinder? It just boggled me mind lol
I dunno why actually. I think it’s more a “it’s me not you,” kind of thing.
Maybe it’s because they always wear khakis and purplish lavender button ups. I hate a very particular color of purplish lavender button ups on men. And red. Such colors were made for no one. Ugh shoot me.
“There are two (medical) girls next to me talking about engagement rings.
They just made fun/pitied another girl for having a small diamond in her engagement ring.”—Welcome to reality, girls being girls. Doctors being Frenemies.
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.
