Hi everyone! What’s been going in your life? Pull up a chair and come catch up on life with me for the Ultimate Coffee Date!
Ultimate Coffee Date: April 2017
If we were having coffee/tea today, I’d tell you that…one week from now, I should be back home hanging out with my family and friends!!! :D!!
If you’ve been following my med school journey, you probably are aware that I’m not a fan of inpatient medicine…but it does have its moments! I was working with the best team ever and my senior resident gave me super-super glowing reviews! (As in, “I told [our program director] you’re the best intern I’ve ever worked with in both the first and second year classes. This is my last day service ever and I’m really glad I worked with you or you would’ve ruined everyone else for me.”)
I was majorly flattered. <3 My program director told me super nice things too, so I guess there may be hope for me after all! 😛 We are our own worst critics…
I get a 2-week break from my 70-80 hour work weeks, for which I’m wildly grateful! *-* (April is my birth month, so last year, I figured I’d schedule vacation somewhere during the month so I wouldn’t have to work on my birthday. ;P )
I also got to cover the Big Ten Women’s Gymnastics Championships! :]!
If we were having coffee/tea today, I’d tell you that…I mentioned this in a previous post and it only took 4 years, but I finally have a meal prep buddy! I’ve been food prepping for the week on weekends ever since med school started, partly to save money and also because it was healthier.
I really wanted to find someone to make food with me because it’s more fun cooking with people and it’d also mean splitting the work/grocery bill + more variety! But I had no takers because everyone was busy studying (sigh).
Last weekend, I drove to Trish’s place after work on Saturday evening and we made 10 quarts of Kale Lentil Soup, 6 jars each of healthified “instant noodles,” 28 sourdough pancakes, 14 sourdough waffles, 40(?) baked egg cups, and 2 whole lemon chickens! We also went to an aerial hammock class, caught up on life, and 4 episodes of Chef’s Table. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a Netflix documentary series on a bunch of renowned chefs in the world! …It makes me wanna go to culinary school after residency, hahaha.
I’d call that a productive half-weekend! ;P
- When’s your birthday month? Do (or did) you have anything planned?
