Was not going to post for some time. Blogging seems to be inhibiting my productivity. Like now, when I’m supposed to be in bed already since I need to be in hospital before 6am tomorrow.
Also, Internal Medicine is killing me. Our firm is crazy busy with way too few students and a whole lot of nonsense I can’t really go into right now. And some super-rude patients.
But during our Call last night, I made a comment to the registrar about how one patient’s daughter seems to fancy herself some kind of unofficial doctor. Which is true.
To which the reg responded (laughingly),
“You know what I like about you? You’re so emo! Has anyone ever told you that before? I dig how you’re not fake just because I’m your registrar. Your… Tim Burton-ness is awesome.”
I think she’s right, although I’ve never considered it to be an “awesome” trait. More of an annoyance really. I’ve been compared to Juno (of the movie) before, which I suppose has the same emo undertones.
So anyways, I’ll just take it for the compliment it is said to be.
It was funny though. I don’t think a doctor has ever complimented me on anything, nevermind anything non-work related.
