I’m not that good. The lovely Gemma appears to disagree and sent me a completely undeserved “One Lovely Blog” award of appreciation. It comes with a few rules, but I’m going to be a wet blanket and only observe the first two:
1) Thank the person who nominated you and link them in your post.
Thanks for the recognition!
2) Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
Here goes nothin’:
1. When I started medical school, I had a list of specialties that I didn’t want to go into. Surgery was number one.
2. The first time that I first-assisted on a case during med school, I knew I was in trouble.
3. My alternative career choices for medicine were to be an astronaut or a journalist.
4. I wanted to be the next Christiane Amanpour but later realized that I would have been a terrible journalist. I would have quit because the editors messed with my writing too much.
5. I would have also been a terrible astronaut. I’m a nervous flyer.
6. I didn’t eat chicken for a full year after doing a dissection in high school. We were dissecting a cat and the muscles looked way too similar.
7. I think Scrubs really is the most accurate medical show. Not only were the generally quite accurate on the medical facts, they also captured the emotion quite well – the minor victories and losses that we experience in the hospital everyday. Though I have yet to reenact West Side Story in the halls.
