new job, new bag

July 2, 2010

yesterday was completely crazy for me — but honestly, i loved every second of it. i have so much to organize and process right now, but i think that within a few weeks i have my own system down. there are so many things to keep track of, from educational/conference responsibilities (of which there are an amazing amount of) to patient care details to documentation. luckily, borderline-OCD record-keeping is my specialty!

this sounds totally cheesy, but i am flooded with the general sense that i am headed into the right career.

plus, i got THESE:

props to the first person to identify this useful tool in the comments 🙂 i’ll be totally impressed (or perhaps slightly disturbed?) if a non-medical person gets it!

fashion friday
i also got this:

i love the trompe l’oeil effect, and for under $100 for orla, the price was right! my old bag is starting to show its age — i have lugged it around the hospital for nearly 3 years now, after all. plus, i am in need of a bit more capacity since i no longer have a dedicated place to put my stuff (i do have a shared office, but it’s at the clinic down the street, not at the main hospital building).

if anyone reading this is looking to purchase an orla kiely bag, the spring/summer 2010 line is on supersale right now! i’m not sure i’ve ever seen them this inexpensive before. check it out here.

happy friday
3 day weekend = so full of exciting possibilities!



workout: 5 miles outside in CH with 2 at tempo
mile 0-1.5: 9:27/mi
mile 1.5 – 3.5: 8:33/mi
mile 3.5 – 5: 9:12/mi

clean eating cookthrough: actually, this dinner featured a vegetable/pasta sauce from CE that i pulled out of the freezer! we are terrible about eating things once they end up in the frigid abyss, so i was glad to use it up.

whole wheat pasta + the aforementioned sauce, served topped with feta and with arugula, tomato, and chickpea salad

reading: i don’t have any exciting endocrine knowledge to report this AM as i ended up just catching on paperwork including finishing 3 consult notes. it was a busy first day!

    Mock testicles!!! Sorry, I&#39ve cheated, I&#39m medical! In the British Medical Journal a couple of Christmases ago, they did a paper about how common chocolates available at Christmas time can be used as a substitute if the real deal isn&#39t available (tongue very firmly in cheek)

    Ha ha Katie, that is so funny!
    I guessed some kind of cheat sheet for dosage, I dn&#39t know where I got that from.
    Have a great long weekend!

    I just ordered a bag from there – thanks for the advice! I need a sturdy bag since I am going back to nursing school!
