I’m Alive

..I promise. I’ve been the world’s worst blogger because I’ve been (apparently) the world’s quietest overachiever in the hospital.  The past couple of weeks have been filled with 2-3 patients per week and research and homework, and crocheting when I have a free moment. Since receiving the moniker “over achiever” I haven’t been able to slack … Continue reading

WIAW- Hurricane Edition

Well, I survived Sandy.  Miraculously I never lost power and there isn’t a whole lot of damage outside. We spent all of Monday watching TV and movies and eating junk food.  I don’t know what it is about being cooped up that makes you want to eat the crappiest food ever. I guess it’s a … Continue reading

Zombies, Parties, and Hurricanes

Just a quick post! My weekend was amazing. It kicked off Friday (my last day of L&D) and I got a patient who was having twins! It was so exciting that 3 of us were in the room to help with the birth.  I got to use my knowledge that I literally had just learned … Continue reading

So let’s dive right in and start with my dinners: Top left: Ricotta and spinach … Continue reading

He survived…

Well, he survived Tough Mudder. He’s a little broken and bruised but on the whole, in pretty good shape! He’s currently working on his post detailing his adventure, and a friend is working on editing the video.  We’ll get the video this weekend and I’ll publish the whole post next week.  I will, however, leave … Continue reading

Friday Five-Newborn Edition

Was it just me, or did this week FLY by?  I feel like it was just Monday and here I am with a full weekend ahead of me. #1- I spent the last 3 days on a postpartum unit bathing, playing, and dressing newborns. I can honestly say I had the best time; I loved everything … Continue reading


Here we are again, another WIAW.  I’m sorry to say that I’ve been slacking on the cooking front because of everything going on in my life.  I’ve been working nights (2-8pm) for the past two weeks (Wed-Fri) for my pediatrics rotation; Mondays and Tuesdays are filled with class and completing the required paperwork for said … Continue reading

Baltimore Half Marathon- 10/13/12

I ran 13.1 miles, voluntarily.  It was a lovely, lovely day with not a cloud in the sky.  The marathoners started bright and early at 8 am, with the half marathoners starting at 9:45 am.  The fiance, our friend JP, and I met up with our friend Aley at the beginning of the half marathon … Continue reading

I survived.

I survived the Baltimore Half Marathon. I’m a little sore and really tired. Full update coming soon, but now I lay on the couch for the rest of the night and celebrate!

Friday 5-#2!

So here’s just a quick little update before I start my extremely long day! This week’s Friday 5! 1.  Today is my last day of my pediatrics rotation and I’m a little sad. I actually really enjoyed this hospital and the kids; I think I’ve just solidified my desire to work in Pediatrics. 2. My … Continue reading
