Third Year Ain’t So Bad

So third year has begun, and it is so much more relaxing than first or second year – well, in some regards. Classes aren’t bad, but there are next year’s electives that have to be dealt with, and that’s pretty time consuming.

Yup.

Life has been uneventful otherwise. I’m GTL’ing today. I also started volunteering in the ER, which is a nice way to meet different doctors and nurses. Plus I get to practice random skills like suturing, casting, inserting catheters and IV lines. I also get to brush up on my EKG-reading skills.

I don’t know what to do with this blog. I feel restricted as to what parts of my life I can write about. And forget about writing how I feel – that would just be disastrous… What I wanted to start doing was posting more about random medical topics that come up during rounds and wards. I always write down things like, “Look up pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, , Leriche syndrome, etc…” but I find I almost never have time to actual do it. So maybe I’ll start – and I’ll post what I find here… Maybe…
