Someone once commented on this blog’s heading*. “Reader, traveler, politics, medical student…” they mused, “Are you sure you’re in the right field of study?” For a second, I thought they were joking. But they weren’t. I had spent enough time wrestling with my career choice. Suggesting that it was a poor one did not dissuadeContinue reading “The Future of This Blog”

Questions on Blogging for Readers Past/Present/Future
I’m not really sure what my place is, these days. And whether it still is with this blog. I will forever be Barefootmeds, but will I continue to tread my footprints here?
8th Annual End of Year Bookish Survey
I’m linking up with Jamie’s annual end of year bookish survey again this year.
I’m Writing Lists This November
Moving on: THERE IS A NEW SOCIAL NETWORK AND IT IS ALL ABOUT WRITING LISTS. (I think NaNoWriMo is cool but I’m trying something new this year.)
The Future of this Blog (and other record-keeping)
Over the past while I have had questions about the continued existence of this blog and I want to say right off the bat that I do not plan on closing up shop. I will probably change the name of the blog (the url will stay the same) and maybe at some point I’ll move to self-hosting, but all in all the blogging community has become so important for my sanity. I do, however, have some questions for my readers.
Follow Friday: On The Other Side Of The Desk
I started blogging as a way of debriefing myself and in the process discovered a whole world of medical blogging. I have found mentors and colleagues all over the world, but I have also met people from the “other side”. I have gotten to know – by means of what they choose to share with theContinue reading “Follow Friday: On The Other Side Of The Desk”
See Time Fly
I went back to my very first post on this blog today. It was on 14 October 2010 – more than two years ago. Things were so different then. I was on the verge of completing probably the most difficult year of my medical school career – for various academic and personal reasons. I wasContinue reading “See Time Fly”
“When Last did you Major in Unafraid?”
I don’t usually write these kinds of things on my blog, but PointlessPurpleBubbles wrote on the topic recently and it inspired me. It helped a little because I think I managed to express things I haven’t been able to understand myself. * * *
TTT: Best Procrastination Sites
So for about five months I’ve been meme-ing along with The Broke and the Bookish on a weekly basis – and I had no idea there were so many book blogs out there. This week, TBTB asks about the Top Ten Blogs or Sites we visit regularly that aren’t about books. I think I’m going to like this, becauseContinue reading “TTT: Best Procrastination Sites”
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 lotContinue reading “Emo Compliment”
