Greek Mythology Dreamcast  → Christina Hendricks as Aphrodite

«Aphrodite (i/æfrəˈdaɪti/ af-rə-dy-tee; Greek: Ἀφροδίτη) is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. She is also known as Cytherea (Lady of Cythera) and Cypris (Lady of Cyprus) after the two cult sites, Cythera and Cyprus, which claimed to be her place of birth. Myrtle, doves, sparrows, horses, and swans were said to be sacred to her. The ancient Greeks identified her with the Ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor.».

Five Days. And some reflections

Not going to be a typical post cause I kinda sorta took the day off. Of course i did questions. But for the most part, I chilled. Think i really needed it, specially after the last few days. And I think for the first time after ages I feel like I am actually getting the hang of it and may be finals wont be so bad.

Anyway so i had to run a few errands and after that, I sat and for the most part, binged on blogs. There was a certain blog that i used to follow back in second year (so three years ago) and I felts like going back and checking how it was going. It’s on blogspot so I don’t really get notifications. 
Anyway so turns out the person had stopped blogging since last year for whatever reason. So while I was at it, I went back to their posts from 2010 and I realised, I really didn’t like them. And I don’t know if it’s cause I have matured more as a medic myself or it’s because I have been fortunate enough to come in contact with some very sincere physicians and residents or what but this person just doesnt seem to…care about their patients! Don’t get me wrong, he does his job well, double checks everything. But it’s clear from his post that his job is just that for him: a job. And he hates it. He wishes he was somewhere else doing some other job. If someone hopeful premed went to him for advice, he would just shoo them away. And I dunno exactly how to explain it but it’s just the vibe, ya know?

Another thing I noticed about his posts was they were so darn negative! After about 20 posts I got frustrated and left cause they just really annoyed me. I mean, I get that residency can be draining and that may get you annoyed at your patients but wayfaringmd is also a resident. cranquis is a physician. And while we all complain about our patients, everyone is still sincere. I guess when you learn how to differentiate between those who are here cause they want to and those who are here for the pay check and the glory of being called a “doctor”, you just can’t tolerate the latter.

Having said that, I realise I whine quite a lot on my blog and spread lots of negativity. I need to stop doing that. Negativity is a cunning cycle. So I am going to try and complain a little less. And appreciate a little more. 


Tomorrow shall be diving back into the studying again. 

watching The Great Mouse Detective for the first time since I was little, and I decided to comment what I think/say…i’ll tag these as “rewatchtgmd” and you can blacklist it if you don’t want to see it.

wayfaringmd: you aren’t the only one who thought Pawnee was a real place in Indiana.

My mother (who doesn’t even live in the same state as me) got a very angry phone call from my aunt this morning wondering “why the hell” I just packed up and moved to Pawnee without so much as a word to her or saying goodbye. Apparently she was besides herself and it took my mom like 10 minutes to explain to her that Pawnee is not a real place.

So yeah. you’re not the only one!

anonymous asked:

Hi! I was wondering if you had any pointers on researching residency programs along with the whole match process. How would you suggest I show interest to certain residency programs as well?

I am only a M1/rising M2, so I’ll defer to my much wiser and more experienced medblr peers on this one, several of whom have just gone through the match process this past year. md-admissions, wayfaringmd, cranquis, mddiaries, can you help this anon out, please? :)

Greek Mythology Dreamcast  → Felicia Day as Artemis

«Artemis (Greek: (nominative) Ἄρτεμις, (genitive) Ἀρτέμιδος) was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her.»

Greek Mythology Dreamcast  → Michael Fassbender as Ares

 «Ares (Ancient Greek: Ἄρης [árɛːs], Μodern Greek: Άρης [ˈaris]), Doric Greek: Ἄρα [ára] was the Greek god of war. He is one of the Twelve Olympians, and the son of Zeus and Hera. He often represents the physical or violent and untamed aspect of war. Ares plays a relatively limited role in Greek mythology as represented in literary narratives, though his numerous love affairs and abundant offspring are often alluded to. When Ares does appear in myths, he typically faces humiliation. He is well known as the lover of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. The symbol of Ares was the spear and his sacred animal was the dog.»

Greek Mythology Dreamcast  → Aaron Tveit as Apollo

 «Apollo (Attic, Ionic, and Homeric Greek: Ἀπόλλων, Apollōn (gen.: Ἀπόλλωνος); Doric: Ἀπέλλων, Apellōn; Latin: Apollō) is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities in ancient Greek and Roman religion, Greek and Roman mythology, and Greco–Roman Neopaganism. The ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of light and the sun, truth and prophecy, healing, plague, music, poetry, and more. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. As the leader of the Muses and director of their choir, Apollo functioned as the patron god of music and poetry. Hermes created the lyre for him, and the instrument became a common attribute of Apollo. Often depicted in sculptures and paintings of Apollo are wolves, deer, and swans.»

Alright friends, I’d like some input (particularly if you like The Great Mouse Detective)

I’m posting this for walkmanquill207 but any of you who want to are welcome to read it and let me know what you think. This is a sample chapter from a fanfic I’ve been planning for a while. It is just a rough draft and is subject to change since I still have some other things to hammer out before I officially get to this part.

The reason I’m posting this is to see what you guys think of my writing style and if you’d be interested in finding out what I added/changed, what now leads up to this scene, and how the ending would change because of it (if you’re familiar with the story, I think you’ll pick it up pretty easily. I don’t think it gives much away, really). Please be honest, even if you don’t like it. I’d rather know that than post something that’s not any good.

Anyway, I don’t own The Great Mouse Detective or any of its characters; they belong to Disney. Marissa is just a mouse version of me who finds herself in trouble and goes to Basil for help, then winds up in a tough spot that involves Ratigan. It would start before the events of the movie and work it’s way though it. This particular chapter takes place just before the fight on Big Ben (and yes, I know a lot of it is word for word, but that’s just how I want this scene to go. It wouldn’t be that way throughout the whole story. Besides, for a teaser/preview I think it works alright).
