and today my PL2 year begins, as i start my pulmonary elective. PL2 stands for 'pediatrics level 2'. really, it means going from this:

(crisp, new, and terrified)

to this:

(grumpy, rumpled, and blasé)

except not really. i think i'll save the blasé-ness for PL3. this year is going to be the year of learning -- both about pediatrics and about how to stay upbeat and lead a team (or myself) to VICTORY. no wonder i had a dream last night about cheerleading tryouts (in which i actually missed the tryouts because i was busy, and then was very sad about my lack of focus).

and speaking of focus (which this post sorely lacks) -- i am happy to report that i already did some reading today. i toyed with running before work and reading afterwards, but i think the other way around works better. i like the quiet chill-time in the AM and have never really enjoyed hitting the gym upon awakening. anyway, yeah.



workout: 4 mile easy-paced run which felt oddly hard (9:13/mi, 0.5% incline) and 25 minutes of upper-body weights (2 sets each pushups, lat pull-downs, bicep curls, tricep push-downs, rows, chest flies, and lateral/front raises)

reading: 35 minutes -- part of a long asthma review paper and an article on neonatal hypoglycemia and brain damage from this month's pediatrics

cooking masterpiece: salmon burgers loosely based on this recipe. i used less salmon though and more cucumber/tomato mixture to make sort of a side salad. it was good, but our house smells like salmon now. i am airing it out though this morning.

Hi Sarah,
I really, really hope this doesn't come across as too creepy... I got to your blog from a link on Kath Eats and immediately freaked out because, well, you'll see. I was born and raised in Durham, but closer to the Chapel Hill side because my dad works at UNC. I'm only here for the summer because I'm doing undergrad up north, but I hope to return to Chapel Hill for med school to become (what else?) a pediatrician. I was really excited to find your blog because right now I'm so caught up in all the MCATS and organic chemistry and personal statements stuff and it's so great to see someone actually in her internship, doing exactly what I want to be doing a few years from now.
Again, I hope this isn't too creepy. But I think you rock! It's wonderful to read about your experiences as an intern so thanks for writing them!
Would it be too creepy to ask if I could email you with questions about the UNC curriculum and med school in general? If not, you can reach me at rachel_randell@lycos.com (I'm Rachel, by the way).

hi rachel! feel free to email me any time :) or let me know when you are free and we could meet for coffee or a drink! i feel for you going through the totally un-fun organic chemistry side of things (i was very bad at orgo). two things:

-- i'm no longer in my internship (YAY!!) -- sorry if this post was misleading
-- i'm not at UNC, although i do live in the O. C. (orange county). i went to med school and am in residency at the darker blue institution down the road . . . but i would still be happy to tell you all about it if you are interested!

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

Everything about horse betting

Despite all the cries of gloom and doom that have been ongoing since the unfortunate decision in the fifties to reject television's offer to broadcast horse racing nationally, the sport has continued to grow. Second only to baseball in overall popularity, horse racing enjoyed 11 straight years of increasing handle (total amount of pooled wagers) before this bemoaned 0.5% decrease. According to Mr. Finley, "an ominous sign of things to come."
[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]horse racing bookmaker[/url]
There are two main forms of horse racing. There is harness racing and thoroughbred horse racing. The form of horse racing, which is popular in most parts of the world, is thoroughbred racing. On the other hand, harness racing is popular in countries like the United States, Canada, Australia, France, and Italy. Another form of racing popular in US is the quarter horse racing.

Will Barbaro be the next Triple Crown winner? He has the breeding and the talent, but as of this writing twenty horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown only to fail at Belmont. Twenty five more have won two of the three races, but maybe this year...

[url=http://www.pulsebet.com]online horses[/url]
As the field takes shape for the 131st running of the Preakness Stakes this Saturday, the question on everyone's minds is do we finally have a horse that can win the Triple Crown?

Real Madrid had opportunities in the first half to set the score 2-0, but the players were unable to score. Kaka, Ronaldo, and Higuain were all close but were unable to complete. The closest was the play made by Higuain at minute 25, when he skipped by the defense and passed Lloris to make an incredible shot – but the ball crashed into the near post, denying the Spanish team a second goal. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]himno real madrid[/url] This worked for Zaragoza, but they had to quit their offensive attack to take care of their defensive lines to prevent the Meringues’ attempts. This meant that Manuel Pellegrini’s team had more difficulties creating chances to score until minute 27, when it enjoyed a double opportunity with an accurate attempt from Raul Gonzalez, which hit the post, and then the subsequent shot from Ronaldo, which Czech Jiri Jarosik saved as the ball approached the net.

A few short minutes after the opening of the game, in minute 5, the Meringues opened the score. A foul gave a free kick to Esteban Granero, who crossed a pass that was headed by Sergio Ramos, putting the scoreboard at 1-0. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]ronaldo goals[/url] Besides lagging behind one point, Villa Real was then reduced to 10 men at minute 35 when Gonzalo Rodriguez was shown his second yellow card for getting Kaka in the ribs.

Finding the right sports books and bookmakers to use for your arbitrage sports betting can be a daunting task with the internet now they are everywhere. The list of crooked bookmaking sites that have helped part people with their money and robbed them of their winnings grows longer every day. Being enlightened about this all sports bettors should do their due diligence before signing up with any bookmaker and be sure of their reputation as well as their guarantees on return of winnings. Almost all sports betting sites will have reviews so read them before making your decision on which one you go with.
bet football | bet online sport betting
The best sports betting odds are in actuality just numbers, they may be an ever changing set of numbers but just numbers nonetheless. There are many different factors involved in the computation of not the least of which is the number of bettors placing bets on one team. If a bookie sees this happening he will give the team that is dentified as the loser more points and take points from the team deemed the winning team.

So you are based in the United States and worried about your money and current situation, right? If so, there is one thing that you should do right away in order to protect yourself. Close down your account, and switch your funds over to an offshore or overseas service. Not only will this ensure that you are doing everything legally, but you will also be able to keep your money safe. If you are like a lot of players you may have quite a bit of money in your online gambling account. Do you want to lose all of that if something happens? It is better to be safe than sorry in this case.

If you are employing neither of those two elements, then the risk you run of eventually losing your entire Base Bank is 99.99%. On the other hand, employing only a good Selection System would not only reduce your risk closer to just 10% maximum, you would also have up to a 10% chance of making money. This would mean that the Bookies would suddenly be faced with a 10% possibility of losing to you long-term, rather than a 99.99% certainty of taking your money from you. Throw in a proper Staking Plan on top of that, and you will have increased your chances of winning to as high as 20%.

8.) Some bingo game sites offer various incentives for the players. Some offer free cash of around twenty to two hundred percent of your initial deposit money and bonuses on your deposit. Hence, you can play more games at such game sites thereby increasing your winning chances. [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]free online bingo games[/url] One of the winning systems is to play with fewer bingo cards. Most bingo players play with many bingo cards to increase their chances of a win at the game. However, playing with fewer cards provides the best odds of the game as your chances of making a big win are higher. Another bingo system in action functions according to the theory of probability. Balls from a bingo machine come out at random, which means that no one can predict emergence of any particular number. In the same vein, you can employ the probability theory to gauge the next number to emerge from the machine. Random drawing of numbers means laws of probability govern selection of balls and their appearance in a uniform distribution pattern. [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]no deposit bingo online[/url] The easiest way to avoid falling victim to a scam is to know the site on which you choose to play. One of the ways this can be accomplished is to talk to other people who play online Bingo to get a feel for the sites they use and what kind of experiences they have had with the site. In most cases, word of mouth is going to be your most accurate means of determining the legitimacy of a Bingo or any other gaming site. Of course, if you are using a free site, knowing about the experiences that others have had with the site is not quite as important, although you do not want to waste your time with something that is unlikely to produce any beneficial results. Of course, a free site is not going to give you much in the way of monetary compensation, and the prizes may be minimal, but for those who are addicted to the game, the challenge is there.

Bingo is a beautiful game of luck, which involves patience, rapid coordination between hearing and searching out the numbers and lots of fun. As with all gambling bingo is totally addictive and you should be careful of its grip on you!

Each pool is a struggle. You need to diversify your game if you want to be successful. This does not mean that you have come with each hand, but remember to lower your standards a little bit about starting hands. Tip Two: Defend His blinds.

Once again, in a game full table, you long to drop his hands, waiting for the few specific hands. The shorthanded tables need to catch every opportunity to look for confrontation, and be sure that your opponents are waiting for it too. Meet your enemies and be careful not to give away.
Poker is a game where a large part takes place in our heads, so be sure that the shorthanded tables tend to be more stressful for the player, and so they actually are. However, by many considered to be the quintessence of constant action and the most exciting of the possible games. If you refine the details, this may be for you the most profitable form of poker.
