I’d like to go to medical school to eventually work in pediatrics, orthopedics, or trauma surgery. Pediatrics would be great because I’m great with kids and easily entertained, but ortho and trauma offer a lot in terms of complex problem solving and working with your hands (which I enjoy).
I also really, really love pathology. Unfortunately, you get minimal interaction with the patients, so it kinda sucks in that regard. I’d rather be actively working with people, rather than just reading tissue slides.
I like medicine because it’s dynamic and intimately involved with helping other people. Every interaction with a physician is important, so considerate people are needed. I just really hope to be the kind of doctor that can deal with the super sad stuff, but at the end of the day has optimism to share.
Anonymous asked: tell us about foods you wont eat
I don’t like ground beef, or pork really (steak and pulled pork are okay but not super great, ja feel me?).
Also. I despise bacon. It has this amazing smell but it just tastes fatty and terrible to me. Also, everyone rants and raves about how bacon is amazing in everything. No. It’s not. If you like bacon, that’s fine. But it makes everything taste exactly like bacon. Quit pretending like it’s a complimentary seasoning like pepper or cumin. Bacon overpowers and ruins a dish in my opinion.
Uhhhh. What else…I don’t like beets?
So that’s it: bacon, beef, and beets.
Anonymous asked: It's too much pressure to come up with asks.... How about you tell me your favourite thing about life right now?
Oh geez, what a fantastic question! It’s cliche, but I do sincerely love fall because it’s the best time of the year to buy butternut squash. I peel it, saute, and blend it to tiny bits and it’s amazing in soups. Also freshly baked bread in fall can’t be beat.
EXCEPT FOR WARM SOUP AND BREAD IN WINTER! Seriously. I love winter so much. It’s my favorite time of year and it’s not just because of snowboarding. The cold really makes me appreciate the warmth in my life. And the quiet dampening of the snow makes me feel bigger and significant over the silent landscape. Winter has this harshness and isolation factor to it that is just ripe for self-reflection. I always feel like summer is just something that happens because it’s easy to just let it pass by, but winter is a time where I’m much more thoughtful and independent.
So I guess, as boring as it is I really like the weather right now.
Other notes from my life that I like right now: my knee injury is recovering, I’m still super fast on my Frisbee team (frisbee senpai noticed me), and I’m really content with how things are going. If med school plans fall through, I’ve enjoyed myself in the mean time, and I have back up plans to work with.
Hey guys, I donated blood and am more drunk than I planned due to that, so why not send me asks?
