Medical school has a sly way of making you feel inadequate at everything in life.
OMG I think I ingested too much nutmeg today at lunch, which is accounting for my dry eye and mouth and inability to concentrate. Apparently nutmeg is popular as a alternative hallucinogenic, and causes anxiety/fear, cutaneous flushing, decrease salivation, GI symptoms, and tachycardia. Either that or my eyes dried up when I took a nap this afternoon… Oops.
Welcome to my kitchen! Today’s lunch is broccoli soup with onions, potatoes, odds and ends from my fridge, and lots and lots of puréed broccoli. And dashes of basil, cumin, white pepper, and a thick coating of nutmeg. Currently obsessed with nutmeg. Yuuuuum.
Do I have a sign on me that says ‘Newly single, Usually friendly, Pretty vulnerable right now’? I’ve had several guys ask for my number this weekend. How do I gauge their level of friendliness versus their desire to get into my pants / into a relationship / into my head? I can totally do the friends thing, but I definitely DONT want to be in a relationship with anyone right now. Facebook needs a ‘Single and NOT READY to mingle’ relationship status. Hopefully then my mother would realize that I’m not looking right now, nor will I be looking for the next calendar year. My pants stay on, my heart stays centered, my eyes are closed except when crossing the street. (Btw, I did give my number to one of the guys because I thought / think he wants to be friends, but I definitely do not know the difference between flirting and friendly texting… They don’t teach us in medical school. I don’t want to lead him on, but I also don’t want to shut down a friendship, so it’s very complicated in my head. Also, I did tell an older black guy getting donations as Target that yes, I was from out of town, yes, I have a boyfriend, and yes, I am very happy. The second two slipped out of my mouth so habitually… What is my brain doing. Sigh.)
Thank you Paula from Switzerland :)
Thank you love!
I need to find myself a nearby shelter to share my love with my furry friends :)
I have no idea, sorry :/
Yaya I love you. *hug*
Thank you dear. It’s getting easier to love and be myself more and more everyday.
I wear spandex by themselves all the time! Cover up the stuff that doesn’t need to be seen, but wear whatever you feel comfortable in :)
I did, a month and a half ago? Thanks lovely! :)
Things I enjoy: make up that doesn’t smear, rain on my car, and getting to know people at integrative medicine conferences.
