Wow, I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve the recent outpouring of love, though I’m always grateful. Thank you, I feel like some sort of group hug is in order!
Though I really, really feel that Internet Dx is much cooler than the person sitting in my chair, drinking oat milk with a scarf and xmas jumper on indoors because it’s just too cold already and it’s only November.
It reminds me of a story (if you ever meet me, or read my blog, you’ll know that everything reminds me of a story, because I like to talk…when there’s no pressure. Introvert chatterboxes are a funny sort) where this esteemed specialist (or were they a researcher?) was being interviewed about their life. And they were asked some kind of question about what their wife and kids felt about them being world renowned. And they were like “Well, at home, I’m not Dr-so-and-so, I’m just a husband and a dad. And I need to take the rubbish out, or help my kid with their homework” etc.
And that’s exactly it.
We’re just normal people. That’s what I’ve taken away from the many truly awesome people I’ve studied under, or met, or been friends with.
I think it’s so important, because sometimes stuff does get to people’s heads; work in medicine, and you’re bound to meet at least a doc or two who seem to think they are gods. Maybe it’s the amount of trust people have in us, and maybe it’s that they worked so hard that they
Even if you’re on the more humble side of medicine (If I were a god, I’d be one of those minor ones with a niche domain that everyone forgets and the other gods kind of smite intermittently, I’m that end of the pecking order), you’re still someone’s kid, sibling, friend, partner, etc. Just a normal person, who happens to do cool stuff sometimes.
13.9.16 These are the books I’m taking to uni! I really don’t expect to read all, or even more than a quarter of them, but what I want to do is give myself flexibility to avoid a reading slump! I think the ones I expect to start first are Clockwork Princess and Stars Above because I already love those series and I want to finish them finally! I’ve only got 100 pages left of empire of storms so I want to try to finish it before I go this Friday…. I don’t want it to end! It’s incredible amazing astounding and so well written and lorcan might just kill me oh my God lorcan! I have an ask in my ask box I am having to put off answering until I finish reading! The Vorrh is a book I picked up cause it has a cool cover, but then three random strangers in the bookshop saw me reading the blurb and told me it was amazing, and then I took it to the desk and the cashier told me it was amazing too! 😂 I’m currently drinking oat milk coffee and listening to Welcome to Night Vale, sorting out which clothes I’m taking to Bristol.

hi there! for the milk anon, oatly (oat milk) has a milk type called "oat drink barista edition" which works great with coffee (not sure if you have it in the uk though? it's swedish) - alternatively, alpro recently launched their own barista milk (soya based). overall, a trick seems to be to warm the milk first, since it'll separate even more when added cold to the coffee. coffee coffee coffee <3
