Today is World Blood Donor Day. I’ll be the first to lament that every day is international some-or-other day, and that one should be aware of whatever-we-commemorate everyday, but in my profession blood is worth more than gold. I’ve seen patients with severe anaemias improve dramatically after receiving blood. And I saw a patient die becauseContinue reading “Eight Million Mosquitoes Can’t Be Wrong”
I had fun with this 9gag ish. No, I do not have too much time. But with Internal Medicine over (for now) I at least have some time. I know I will miss it soon. Hence the inspiration for this:
I think one of the biggest reasons I read is because it inspires me. It inspires me to live, to love, to be bigger than I am, to exceed life’s expectations. I guess you could say I collect quotes – so today’s Top Ten Tuesday with The Broke and the Bookish is making me very happy. TheseContinue reading “TTT: Quotes that Inspire”

The blogosphere is weird. I’m still not sure how I feel about it, but here I am another week. I had a blog once before, it didn’t work out too well. Then I moved to this blog, and it hasn’t exactly skyrocketed, but I enjoy it. This week, The Broke and the Bookish talks about tipsContinue reading “TTT: How to be a Great Blogger of Books”
Because today is a study day (and I would like to study, for once), today is a quick post. One of the chapters in Dermatology is about ectoparasite infections of the skin. These include crabs (Pthirus Pubis) and fleas (yes, humans can get fleas). And, just to show how relevant these are, here is yourContinue reading “Ectoparasite Infections in Art, Literature and History”
Today I want to share some pictures from PostSecret. They are sad, touching, cheeky, funny. I want never to forget the fears and thoughts of the people sitting across the desk from me.
After giving us some really tough questions the past few weeks, The Broke and the Bookish have graced us with a straightforward (but fun) topic this week: Top Ten Book Covers of all time. Since I don’t really stick t o one genre, I won’t be narrowing it down any further.
…but before I get to that, today I reveal my brand-spanking-new blog button, yay! I’ve never been great at the whole design thing, but I think I finally hit gold with this one. I hope you like it.
