counting the hours

June 24, 2009

laptop lunchbox

thanks to an innocent comment from anonymous yesterday, i just dropped some $$$ this AM on the lunch system above. i will definitely report on its quality and efficiency! in addition to what is shown above, i also ordered an extra set of containers so that i can just throw them in the dishwasher each time. the whole package wasn’t cheap, but it’s something i will use almost every day, so i figure that it’s worth it. and my current bag truly has seen better days.

what am i waiting for?
i’m on a pretty tough rotation right now, and hyperaware of the fact that my work life is not going to get easier until september. yesterday, i found myself staring grimly at my upcoming schedule, yearning for some sort of residency magic dust so that i could fast-forward a few weeks. now, if i were truly in some sort of torture-chamber situation (starvation, illness, life in jeopardy), then this sort of thinking would be completely warranted. but i’m not. i’m taking care of patients, teaching students, and generally NOT living a lifestyle that is allllllllllllll that horrible.

yes, i miss my weekends off (although i DO get this saturday & sunday!). and i have to get up early to fit in my runs. but this is not terrible, and the days actually go by rather quickly when i am not spending the time wishing the hours away.

so today i am going to try to catch myself in these thought patterns. i am going to embrace and enjoy my job, my commute, my workout, my time to cook dinner. each day is not a race to the finish line (ie, the bed). sometimes it is amazing how hard that is for me to remember.



workout: another AM run! this time i took it easier: 4.6 miles @ 9:11/mi on my usual moderately hilly route. i listened to this american life and had a blissful time.

    I&#39ve never described a run as "blissful"…I&#39ll have to think about that one!

    You would be proud of me. A friend was showing me her new bag and I said, "Is that Orla Kiely?" and it was.
