July 1, 2008

and today my PL2 year begins, as i start my pulmonary elective. PL2 stands for ‘pediatrics level 2’. really, it means going from this:

(crisp, new, and terrified)

to this:

(grumpy, rumpled, and blasé)

except not really. i think i’ll save the blasé-ness for PL3. this year is going to be the year of learning — both about pediatrics and about how to stay upbeat and lead a team (or myself) to VICTORY. no wonder i had a dream last night about cheerleading tryouts (in which i actually missed the tryouts because i was busy, and then was very sad about my lack of focus).

and speaking of focus (which this post sorely lacks) — i am happy to report that i already did some reading today. i toyed with running before work and reading afterwards, but i think the other way around works better. i like the quiet chill-time in the AM and have never really enjoyed hitting the gym upon awakening. anyway, yeah.



workout: 4 mile easy-paced run which felt oddly hard (9:13/mi, 0.5% incline) and 25 minutes of upper-body weights (2 sets each pushups, lat pull-downs, bicep curls, tricep push-downs, rows, chest flies, and lateral/front raises)

reading: 35 minutes — part of a long asthma review paper and an article on neonatal hypoglycemia and brain damage from this month’s pediatrics

cooking masterpiece: salmon burgers loosely based on this recipe. i used less salmon though and more cucumber/tomato mixture to make sort of a side salad. it was good, but our house smells like salmon now. i am airing it out though this morning.

    Hi Sarah,
    I really, really hope this doesn’t come across as too creepy… I got to your blog from a link on Kath Eats and immediately freaked out because, well, you’ll see. I was born and raised in Durham, but closer to the Chapel Hill side because my dad works at UNC. I’m only here for the summer because I’m doing undergrad up north, but I hope to return to Chapel Hill for med school to become (what else?) a pediatrician. I was really excited to find your blog because right now I’m so caught up in all the MCATS and organic chemistry and personal statements stuff and it’s so great to see someone actually in her internship, doing exactly what I want to be doing a few years from now.
    Again, I hope this isn’t too creepy. But I think you rock! It’s wonderful to read about your experiences as an intern so thanks for writing them!
    Would it be too creepy to ask if I could email you with questions about the UNC curriculum and med school in general? If not, you can reach me at (I’m Rachel, by the way).

    Finding the right sports books and bookmakers to use for your arbitrage sports betting can be a daunting task with the internet now they are everywhere. The list of crooked bookmaking sites that have helped part people with their money and robbed them of their winnings grows longer every day. Being enlightened about this all sports bettors should do their due diligence before signing up with any bookmaker and be sure of their reputation as well as their guarantees on return of winnings.

    The best sports betting odds are in actuality just numbers, they may be an ever changing set of numbers but just numbers nonetheless. There are many different factors involved in the computation of not the least of which is the number of bettors placing bets on one team. If a bookie sees this happening he will give the team that is dentified as the loser more points and take points from the team deemed the winning team.

    So you are based in the United States and worried about your money and current situation, right? If so, there is one thing that you should do right away in order to protect yourself. Close down your account, and switch your funds over to an offshore or overseas service. Not only will this ensure that you are doing everything legally, but you will also be able to keep your money safe. If you are like a lot of players you may have quite a bit of money in your online gambling account. Do you want to lose all of that if something happens? It is better to be safe than sorry in this case.

    If you are employing neither of those two elements, then the risk you run of eventually losing your entire Base Bank is 99.99%. On the other hand, employing only a good Selection System would not only reduce your risk closer to just 10% maximum, you would also have up to a 10% chance of making money. This would mean that the Bookies would suddenly be faced with a 10% possibility of losing to you long-term, rather than a 99.99% certainty of taking your money from you. Throw in a proper Staking Plan on top of that, and you will have increased your chances of winning to as high as 20%.

    8.) Some bingo game sites offer various incentives for the players. Some offer free cash of around twenty to two hundred percent of your initial deposit money and bonuses on your deposit. Hence, you can play more games at such game sites thereby increasing your winning chances. [url=]free online bingo games[/url] One of the winning systems is to play with fewer bingo cards. Most bingo players play with many bingo cards to increase their chances of a win at the game. However, playing with fewer cards provides the best odds of the game as your chances of making a big win are higher. Another bingo system in action functions according to the theory of probability. Balls from a bingo machine come out at random, which means that no one can predict emergence of any particular number. In the same vein, you can employ the probability theory to gauge the next number to emerge from the machine. Random drawing of numbers means laws of probability govern selection of balls and their appearance in a uniform distribution pattern. [url=]no deposit bingo online[/url] The easiest way to avoid falling victim to a scam is to know the site on which you choose to play. One of the ways this can be accomplished is to talk to other people who play online Bingo to get a feel for the sites they use and what kind of experiences they have had with the site. In most cases, word of mouth is going to be your most accurate means of determining the legitimacy of a Bingo or any other gaming site. Of course, if you are using a free site, knowing about the experiences that others have had with the site is not quite as important, although you do not want to waste your time with something that is unlikely to produce any beneficial results. Of course, a free site is not going to give you much in the way of monetary compensation, and the prizes may be minimal, but for those who are addicted to the game, the challenge is there.

    Bingo is a beautiful game of luck, which involves patience, rapid coordination between hearing and searching out the numbers and lots of fun. As with all gambling bingo is totally addictive and you should be careful of its grip on you!
