For My Mothers

A lot of people grow up saying they hope they never turn into their mother…I hope I turn out to be just like mine. Happy Mother’s Day to the most loving, selfless and beautiful person I’ve ever known!! Thanks for teaching me to be forgiving and genuine and for always making sure I knew I could do anything I put my mind to, I’d be lost without you. I love you, Mom! August 1986 Snuggling. […]

The Important Things In Life

Between here and East Texas there are approximately 440 miles of asphalt equaling out to just under 7 hours of 70mph driving*. As a medical student and obsessive worrier it has never been easy for me to make the decision to leave town and now that the monster that is Step 1 has is hanging over my head it has become even more difficult. However, every year we look forward to an Easter road trip […]

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 […]

Organ Donation – Five Years Ago Today

Become An Organ Donor – Find Your State It was Spring Break, 2006 – my second Spring Break of college. We laid on the beach in Rocky Point, Mexico all morning and, sometime around noon, made our way back inside for lunch and a quick nap.  I had strict instructions from my mom not to call or text anyone while I was out of the country and not to answer any calls if someone tried to […]

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 […]

We’re Moving To New Zealand

Only enjoyable through a window.Photo courtesy of Ryan Holst on Flickr. I despise the cold weather. If you follow me on Twitter you probably already know that because of all the complaining I managed to do (I know, me complain? Never!) when the windchill here was -16°F for several days in a row. Luckily, Texas weather changes really quickly and today we broke record highs by making it to 85°F – I’ll take that in […]

Christmas Gift Awards for 2010

We’ve had our Christmas gifts for a couple of weeks now, so I thought it might be time I share with you some of my favorites.** I mentioned in the last post that we are absolutely spoiled so don’t get all up in arms that my family so totally rocks more than yours, you’ve been warned. Without further ado, my top ten list of gifts and their awards for Christmas 2010: I really love to cook […]

Then I Broke An Old Lady’s Zygomatic Process

….okay not really, but if I wasn’t anti-oldladypunching I would have. It’s probably a good thing I hold this stance on using my fists to show 70 year old women what I think, otherwise there’s a good chance I would have earned myself a nice new set of silver bracelets yesterday afternoon (and this blog post probably would’ve been titled very differently – ex. “How I Got Kicked Out Of Medical School”). Anyway, let’s start at […]

Thanksgiving Vacation

Our family! Well, I’m back from my almost 2 week Thanksgiving blogging hiatus. I know you’ve all been sitting around since November 17 throwing a party wondering what I’m up to, so I’m here to force you to read some more about my life. I failed the second test of my life (both of which have been in med school). It was only by 7 tenths of a point, though and I think I’ll get at […]

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.
