New Year, Same Old Me

I don’t really have much to say at all. I just feel I should use this space more often.

So what’s happening lately?

  • I’m starting a set of nights today… Only they didn’t have cover from 17:00-21:00 tonight, so I’m doing a 17:00-9:00 shift today
  • Meeting my supervisor in the morning to go over the craptastic ePortfolio, which is a piece of shit way of documenting your work throughout training so that you can “graduate” when the time comes
  • Flying out in a week – to Canada – I can’t wait!
  • I’m getting close to reaching my personal goal of having reduced my educational debts to half. Yes, HALF! This is something else I can’t wait for!
  • I must work on my to-do list… it’s just so hard to get started
  • I’ve slowly created another locum wishlist… this is pretty and expensive toys I want but should not dip into my regular budget for, therefore I work extra shifts to afford extra things
  • Recently I’ve extended my domain name subscriptions and hosting… I can’t remember was I was paying before but I feel like prices have skyrocketed! And I didn’t have the lovely option of paying for a domain name for 10 years in advance like I have with others.

I think that’s it. I had started making a theme a few years ago… It’s still sitting on my desktop with a few PHP kinks I need to work out. At this rate, I don’t even know what’s new in the world of PHP so my theme may be completely outdated… I’ve got an exam coming up in April/May, but maybe after that I can start coding again.

Hello there

I’m really awful at updating, I know. Since my last post in July, I’ve moved up the ladder at work and am now a GP trainee. One of my closest friends from medical school works with me in the same program and in the same hospital. I bought a car. I upgraded my iPhone (finally). And I’ve probably gained a good 20lbs.

I’ve also applied for the MCCQE1, which I will be tackling in April/May. Studying starts now (just spent a lovely $200 on a Q-bank).

I continue to toy with the idea of writing the Canadian exams to give it a shot to apply to Canadian residency. On the other hand, I finish all my training here in less than 3 years now and I can look towards a fellowship in EM in Canada instead (with a part time role as a surgical assistant)… So many opportunities.
