Time to see some patients! Best thing about child and adolescent outpatient psych is not having to wear a white coat.

Medical school is really cramping my style. 

I bought these cute smoking loafers online the other day and when they arrived, I tried them on around the house. They passed my stringent looks and comfort standards (at that moment, anyway) and so I decided to keep them. 

I wore them to work on Thursday and by the end of the day the sides of my feet were so achey I practically limped home. The only other pairs of shoes I had been wearing to work were two pairs of Clarks flats (same style, different colors) that were also comfy on try-on but I made sure to break in for a month before I wore them to work. 

Unfortunately, I forgot this fact, and am now suffering through an attempted accelerated break-in of these shoes with my thickest wool socks. My feet hate me. 

Psych means

There is such thing as donut addiction. Clockwise from top L: plain vanilla cake (for Sam), lime-vanilla-graham cracker, lemon-blueberry-mint, and an encore from blueberry cake #donuts #donutfriend #nofilter

This is my new Target watch that I bought 45 minutes before my OSCE today because someone had stole my beloved Fossil watch out of my gym bag yesterday. Every day, I go to the gym, take my watch off, and put it in my bag with my underwear, work clothes and shoes. The next morning, when I need to put it on again, I rifle through my gym bag to retrieve it. The one day I actually need a watch for taking a pulse and respiratory rate, it wasn’t there, and I had a mini panic attack that resulted in me running through the aisles of Target like a crazy person. 
Who would go rifling through someone’s undies and smelly shoes to steal a watch that’s worth about 80 bucks and has been worn for two years? Whoever it is, consider it charity, cause you clearly needed it more than I do.
You know what else was in my gym bag that they didn’t take? My pager. Whew.

Things they told you would happen in med school, and you listened, and you knew it would happen, but you just didn’t think it would be that bad

- being tired all the time
- like literally all. the. time.
- if I’m not moving or actively engaged for more than 10 minutes, I start falling asleep
- it’s 9:30pm right now. bedtime.
