Currently practicing for my SP and writing a SOAP note via my cat (pretending he’s a person). 

I’ve diagnosed that he is a cat, not a person. 

Sir, I’m afraid these hairballs aren’t going away anytime soon.

I believe every cat of a medical student has been their human’s standardized patient at one time.

They always ruin your PE by purring when you want to listen to their heart though. Jerky purring adorable cats.

I practice percussing on my cat’s belly… I like to think it’s a mutually beneficial experience

my cat's chubby too so it's a jiggly percussion

tag tiiiiime

Once you get this you have to say five things that you like about yourself, then send this to ten of your favorite followers :)

OH HAI.

  1. I like that my interests are diverse. I like arts and sciences, I’m a premed student who studies a lot but also makes quilts and…

Oh whaaa?? Thanks for the tag, science of uncertainty. I’m honored to be one of your ten favorite followers. I guess I’ll do this. I’m always reticent to share things I like about myself (seems like bragging), which is why I struggle a lot with personal statements and interviews etc… but this seems less like bragging and more like a positive mental exercise, so I suppose it couldn’t hurt. Without further ado:

1. I consider myself to be a very loyal friend, and I like that about me.
2. I like that I can beat the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time without google. Shit’s hard. And it’s nice to have something I think I could do better than the brightest people in my class, no matter how insignificant.
3. I like my marvel heroes scrubs.
4. I like that I am open minded.
5. I like turtles.
(Couldn’t resist)

I’ll tag a few people. Don’t feel compelled, obviously. Plus whoever else wants to. modernathena90 lindsaytheamazing pleasedotheneedful captainmudphud ninjatengu medschool-monarchess mademoisellepremed fourfortyfivenm coffeemuggermd wayfaringmd medicalmysterytour


I was tagged?? thanks, eclipperton!

1. I like that I remember details about people, especially things they tell me
2. I like that I’m observant and can pick up on little things
3. I like my sense of humor, it’s very reference-based
4. I like that I have a strong work ethic, but I also make time to enjoy simple pleasures
5. (going off eclip’s marvel point) I like how I have an Agents of SHIELD ID card in my wallet. At all times. Just in case. Iron Man may need back up one day, and I will be there, with proof of ID.

I tag livelikeawildthing, md-admissions, thisfuturemd, and anyone else who wants to play along!

Cartoons

eclipperton:

Do your guys’ professors use the word “cartoon” to describe a drawing? And is this normal? One of my undergrad professors used to do it too, but I thought it was just him. Now all of my professors do it. Am I the only one that’s like, ‘wtf that’s not a cartoon?’

Not a cartoon:

A cartoon:

Yes! I think it’s part of the professor lexicon… because “figure” is too mainstream.

hipster profs use their own jargon or maybe theyre just old and old people say cartoon

We finally get to see real patients this week! We’ve already had two exams and are halfway through Anatomy. We will be practicing parts of the physical exam we have learned so far on clinic patients. I like that they’re letting us do it now when we’re still suffering through Anatomy, because it reminds us of why we are in med school (not for the lingering formaldehyde smell).

Do any of you have tips for hiding incompetence a first-year going to clinic for the first time?

Should be fun MS1 med school

I look up — many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big — but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity.

That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you.

That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive…
