About This Blog
This blog isn’t necessarily about medicine or patients, it’s about…um, well…I’m not really sure what it’s about. Although I very much enjoy blogging on medical subjects, I never started this blog with the intention of becoming the voice of medical students – I just started it to write and to connect. Technically Mind On Medicine began in 2007, but from 2007 until late 2010 it consisted of less than 5 posts. Since late 2010 it has blossomed into a confused blog of sorts - caught somewhere between personal and educational, silly and serious – it’s just a little guy in a big world trying to figure out who it’s mother is. A conglomeration, if you will, of medical education, stories of exploding Jones’ soda bottles, bad attempts at humor and random projects I’ve devised…with the occasional truly important post thrown in for redeeming measure. It’s kind of my journey through life finding a work-life balance…in written form.
On any given day you might find a silly story about my life, a random pet peeve, a serious entry or some health information I’ve found to be important. I talk about my journeys in medical school, marriage, delinquent dog ownership, home improvement/DIY endeavors and everything in between. One thing I can promise you is that this blog is constantly changing and evolving.
So, if you’re looking for a blog that discusses mainly science and medicine, I would suggest:
but, if you’re looking for a blog that talks about the random of mix of things you might discuss with a third year medical student from Texas over a hot cup of coffee, then Mind On Medicine may be right up your alley.
I’m a Medical Student (that means I'm in school to become a doctor). My life story can be viewed here. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit school and move to Hollywood, so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact I'm probably a spambot. Or a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
