i cannot pass this

Bringing back this post given the caption on the Elounor pap pics. Absolutely disgusting that they’re anchoring this stunt on Jay’s passing. It’s unacceptable and I cannot believe we’ve gotten to this point just to make this bearding redux look legit! Just how low will Louis’ team go? Because this is despicable!

From today’s pap pic caption: “Louis and Eleanor rekindled their relationship when his mum died back in December.”

I posted the below two weeks ago. They’ve been trying to push this angle since the end of January. They tried it with anons but no dice. So now they’re really being blatant about it.

DID YOU JUST ASSUME?

Androgynous guard (our DM is a brilliant artist): You cannot pass unless you have a permit.
Me: I ROLL TO SEDUCE HER.
DM: Her?
Me: Him.
DM: Him?
Me: I…roll to seduce…please…I don’t know.
(I roll super low)
DM: The guard flares at your clumsy attempt and lectures you till nightfall about gender.
Me OOC: oh god no.
Rest of party: BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I’m going to confess this stupid thing, but it happens to me that from time to time, when a very good blog of this fandom follows me I’m like ’is this true? You are following me? Are you sure this is not a mistake?’ And I always wait for they to stop following me because I can not believe that someone so cool has noticed my existence.

How To Be A Good Med Student In The Clinical Years

A doctor once told me that the best instrument we have is medicine is the retrospectoscope.  Basically he was saying that often it is easier to make sense of things when looking back from the vantage point of the future.  This is true of life too.  After being an intern for two months I suddenly understand what things make for a strong med students, and what things do not.  Unfortunately, I feel like I lacked many of the qualities that would have made me a helpful med student.  Though I cannot rectify my own mistakes, perhaps I can pass my advice on to future generations of third and fourth year medical students.  I now present, how to be a good clinical med student:

  1. Show up.  This seems obvious.  When you are there to work, then be there to work.  It is so frustrating when medical students are mysteriously absent all the time (only to be found later in the cafe or cafeteria) or when they are there but totally disinterested in what is going on.  I understand that sometimes as a medical student things get slow - like when the interns are putting in orders and notes or when there is a slow call day.  But at least bring something to read.  Don’t play Pokemon Go.  Don’t spend all day on Uworld.  Make an effort to learn real clinical medicine.
  2. Take initiative to learn.  When I was a third year I would wander the hospital to find learning opportunities.  I made friends with the telemetry nurses and they started a folder of good tele strips to give me each day.  I would go to other teams and see if their patients had good exam findings.  I found the cardiology fellows and asked if they had good patients with murmurs.  There is so much learning that can happen if you are willing to experience it.  Now, referring back to number 1, make sure you always let your residents know where you are.  Personally, I would be ecstatic if my students went to hunt down murmurs rather than playing Pokemon Go. 
  3. Read your patient’s chart.  This can be very helpful and will make you look like a star.  Residents are busy taking admissions and sometimes don’t have the time to hunt down records that are three and four years old.  You can stand out by doing that  Look at a patient’s past hospital notes or their specialty clinic notes.  For example, you might be able to alert the resident that an old echocardiogram demonstrated a below normal ejection fraction, which in turn might change how much fluid the patient is given.  Or perhaps you found that during a hospitalization in the past the patient became delirious and needed a one-to-one sitter.  Find ways to add information in a helpful, non-prescriptive, non-judgmental way.  I guarantee your reviews will benefit.
  4. Read about your patient’s condition.  Even if you just browse Medscape, UpToDate, or some other curated source, make sure you understand the basics of your patient’s primary diagnosis.  If they are there for heart failure, read over the basics of treatment.  If they have autoimmune hepatitis look up some info on diagnosis and prognosis.  These things will get noticed, especially when you ask intelligent questions on rounds.  Do not be like a med student I had who, when asked, reported for 4 straight days that he had not read about his patient’s disease.  He instead responded he was too busy with Uworld so he would get a good shelf score.
  5. See your patients.  I literally had students who, on rounds, tried to present without actually having seen the patient in the morning.  This is a huge no-no.  Get to work early enough to see your patients, review their labs, and their overnight events.  
  6. Practice your presentations.  Even if it is on your own or with other medical students, spend time working on your presentation skills.  Heck, even ask the residents to watch you.  I would be happy to do that for any of my students.  Unfortunately, none have taken me up on that offer and instead bumble through their presentation each day making the same mistakes.  By the end of medical school you need to be able to make a good presentation. 
  7. Spend time working on note writing.  Compare your notes to your residents’, your attendings’, and the specialists’.  Everyone has a different style.  Look at lots of notes to determine a style for yourself.  
  8. Forget all the step 1 stuff you learned.  I find many students perseverate on the terrible stereotypes and patterns they see on step 1.  Not all black people with cough have sarcoidosis.  Not every patient with acute kidney injury needs urine eosinophils.  These are good associations, but realize that step 1 has little overlap with real clinical medicine.  Take those associations with a grain of salt. 
  9. Don’t just look for zebras.  I cannot tell you how many times students opt not to follow a patient because the case “doesn’t seem that interesting.”  The majority of medicine is made up of mundane and common diseases such as heart failure, pneumonia, COPD, cirrhosis, etc.  It is pretty rare to get the exciting cases, like disseminated histoplasmosis or a crazy paraneoplastic syndrome.  A lot of learning can happen on cases that are “bread and butter” medicine.  Make sure you follow those cases too. 
  10. Be gentle to your interns/residents.  The transition from 4th year to being a doctor is swift and brutal.  It is easy to criticize when you aren’t the one taking 5 admits.  Find ways to help your intern/resident, because in return they will help you.  I learned this lesson the hard way my 4th year, when I unintentionally threw an intern under the bus while trying to look smart.  Afterwards she took me aside and reminded me that she controlled much of my fate while I was a student under her.  I learned my lesson and we went on to become very good friends.

The clinical years of medical school are daunting.  You constantly feel like a tap dancing monkey, trying to impress people you barely have time to get to know.  But personally, I am not looking for someone who knows everything about everything.  That’s why you are in school.  The best thing you can get out of third and fourth year is how to do a good history and physical, how to write good notes, and how to triage patients.  The best students are interested, willing to learn, and know their patients well.  If you keep that in mind, the clinical years are much simpler.  I promise, if you follow your patients you will learn much more than just doing qbank questions.   

Best of luck on your clinical rotations.  Don’t make things too complicated.  At the end of the day have fun, treat your patients right, and keep an open mind.  The learning will happen whether you recognize it or not.

for a minute, let me talk about the several reasons why no matter how many months have passed since this day, i still cannot stop staring at this certain candid: 

  • namjoon’s skirt i hate how nobody appreciated this enough
  • look at how ironed namjoon’s clothes are [i wonder who pressed them]
  • those pants fit him so pleasingly i find myself staring again and again
  • how namjoon glows in the sunlight
  • namjoon’s skirt !! the ‘in bloom’ shirt concept for 화양연화 promotional activities, it’s a massive bag of yes from me
  • that hair color on yoongi a smol strawberry cupcake i’m not okay at all
  • that soft smile on his face
  • the fact that yoongi is actually dressed in the clothes that namjoon described his ‘ideal type’ to be wearing: “t-shirt, jeans and red converse highs, that’s it”
  • does anybody want to speak about how good that flannel looks on him
  • and yoongi looks so smol, almost like he’s under boyfriend! namjoon’s protection
  • matching couple clothes
  • the rude amount of boyfriend material in this picture 
  • they might as well just be holding hands
  • also have we spoken about namjoon’s skirt !!!!
  • this candid alone is fanfic/drabble worthy
  • god save me
  • SUGAMON/NAMGI RISE

Shoutout to the girls doing ‘dirty jobs.’ The women who can’t wear makeup, nail polish, flattering clothes or have piercings and tattoos when at work. Props to the ladies who come home with dirt under their nails, stains on their uniforms and smells stuck to them that cannot be washed away with a single shower. To the girls who don’t feel pretty in their workplace. To the trans girls who cannot yet pass in the workplace. I see your dirt, smears, scars and dry skin. I see your scrubs, coveralls, aprons and smocks. I see your messy buns and steel-toed boots.

Your hard work is beautiful. Your blood, sweat and tears are worthy of respect. I am so proud of you and all you do. You are just as stunning in your work clothes as you are on a night out.

Not even gonna lie, if a fanfic has more than like 37 tags I’ll stressfully scroll passed it cuz I just emotionally can not

Wait For Me To Come Home by beautifully_cyan

“Well if not Nick, who you be yours?”

The tears finally make it past Harry’s eyes when he whispers, “I think you know.”

Louis never cries and with Louis, never means never, but ever since he met Harry, he’s been the exception for a lot of things when it comes to him. So Louis is crying along side him when he whispers back, “I think so too.” He’s then scotching into Harry’s lap and hugging the life out of him, because what else can the two of them do but be there for each other?

Inspiration: “I Don’t Want to Change You” ~ Damien Rice

Where ever you go,
Well, I can always follow
I can feed this real slow
If it’s a lot to swallow.
And if you want to be alone
Well, I can wait without waiting
If you want me to let this go
Well, I’m more than willing…”

Don’t kill me or anything but I just need to get something off my chest about Samuel “Troy Baker” Drake. To this day I cannot get passed that ending of the Madagascar chapter. Sam literally stands there or leans casually against a wall w/e and watches Nate’s life and marriage fall apart. I guess it’s no big deal at all watching your brother unknowingly lie to the people he loves and trusts just because for your own selfish reasons you think you can take advantage of some guilt complex Nate has on your behalf. I just…..can’t. No. Not to mention that they all almost died because of this shit. SAMUEL WTF. 

I am but a dying storm already far from sea
The mountain pass I cannot sedate
When my body falls, will I be free?

The tempest wind whistles, ice rains flurry
My tendril arms twist, writhe to mutate
I’m but a dying storm already far from sea

My fight continues, the prophets decree
Mire armies grow, tripwires detonate
When my body falls, will I be free?

Without my eye, my gusts, my fury
Nevermore will I twist the arm fate
I’m but a dying storm already far from sea

Darkness flows, late hours blurry
Now here I fade, at the end I await
When my body falls, will I be free?

Deep in the night, the cold takes me
Alone, I arrive at the shadow of the gate
I am but a dying storm already far from sea Thus, my body falls, now, am I free?
