Always Zip Your Backpack Pockets…

or risk losing your favorite study snacks to a vicious predator with long hair, big eyes and a wet nose that is apparently ridiculously good at it’s sniffing job. Do I look sweet & innocent? Good, that’s what I’m going for… I’ve often discussed the fact that I own dogs who could, if canine-psychiatry was a real life field, likely earn themselves a diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Generally, when I’m talking about my dogs […]

Where’s My Hand Sanitizer?

Today is your lucky day – I have some extremly useful, likely life-saving, information to share with you. Everyone isn’t crazy enough to go to medical school, so it’s a good thing there are bloggers like me to save you from the deadly microbes of the Earth that only the board-reviewing med students know about. Things You’re Doing That Could Kill/Seriously Injure You: Petting Prairie Dogs Yersinia pestis, AKA – Causative Agent of the Black Death  Grocery […]

Gluco$e…Like Ke$ha

I hate Biochemistry. I am not good at it – I never have been and I likely never will be. It is horribly mundane and nit-picky and I harbor a certain degree of hatred for it simply because I am so bad at it. In fact, during my first semester of medical school when I was taking Biochem, I was relatively certain the admissions committee had accepted me purely for the sadistical pleasure of following along as I […]

Red Bull Smoothie Recipe

Did you know there are people in this world who never drink caffeine? I know.  I KNOW. How could they deprive themselves of such a tasty and exciting drug? And more importantly, why would they even want to? Well, apparently, there are studies that link caffeine consumption to incontinence, hypertension, osteoporosis, empty bank accounts and other not so desirable states. However, like any good scientist, I choose to ignore the correlations nay-sayers have shown between […]

The Day I Vacuumed My Freezer

Have you ever been alone in your house and heard a really strange noise reverberate from another room? Something that sounded awfully similar to what you can only assume is the racket a nuclear bomb might make if it came crashing through your kitchen skylight? I have. If you’ve been following this blog since January you might remember the Christmas Gift Awards post I did at the beginning of the year. If not, I’ll bring you […]

Avoid a Speeding Ticket Using Your Dirty Dog

Baby Jaden. Born 4/4/11 – 7lbs, 7oz. Adorable. I was about an hour into the three hour drive home from visiting one of my very best friends and her absolutely precious new baby boy, listening to Dr. Goljan explain Serous Ovarian Cystadenocarinoma through my car speakers and generally minding my own business when I saw flashing lights make an abrupt u-turn as I passed them. I silently willed the lights to transform into an ambulance. […]

Dungeon to Laundry Room Makeover

One cold day in January, while my husband helplessly sat in his office chair at work making an actual contribution to this family, I decided I had better things to do than listen to lectures on Cystic Fibrosis or Mesothelioma and proceeded to peruse my house making a list of “projects” I would like to complete. The list was 1,246 items long and I spent approximately $6,241.58 in my mind during that 45 second walk, […]

Dialect Debates – You Call That A What?!

Photo Courtesy of Mykl Roventine.Flickr, Creative Commons. Leaving Walmart yesterday I decided to write about people who happily peruse a store for 2 hours but, after unpacking their purchases into the back of their Lexus SUV, abruptly become incapable of walking 10 feet to return their grocery basket to the designated area of the parking lot. This sudden onset of disability leaves them with no choice but to roll their basket into the middle of […]

There’s a Creepy Naked Guy in Your Brain

One weekend during my Neuro block last semester, while I was busy trying to figure out what the heck a heinously disproportionate and frightening naked guy named Homunculus was doing living in my brain*, my 16 year old sister, Madison, came to visit. When I mentioned that 2013, the year I have to leave school behind and get a big-kid job, seemed like light-years away she kindly reminded me that the world would be coming […]

About The Author

I'm an ObGyn. I started this blog as a medical student (some would call that doctor school) and now I'm working as an Ob/Gyn, which is seriously the coolest job ever. I'm a twin mom and recently added a baby brudder to the mix. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, but that hasn't happened...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 possibly 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.
