Now Playing Tracks

An alarm I haven’t used in ages just went off. It had no date set on it, and it thought it was 6:45am. It’s never done it before.

I had to look for it because I totally forgot I had it.  I’m so confused.

My cruddy alarm clock has..resurrected?

Today was a day off, and it felt great. I got to sleep in ‘till 6am! 

The only thing better than taking a day off from being in the hospital helping treat people medically, is using that day off to help advocate for them socially on a wonderfully warm day. Welcome to a glimpse of my life on what I more or less do during my free time. Healthcare is a human right. You all deserve access to quality and affordable healthcare.

We had been planning a rally for universal health care and equal patient treatment and it finally came through, after an activist summit filled with amazing workshops, speakers, and med students from around the country. We marched down Michigan Avenue down to the HQ of Blue Cross/Blue Shield to decry the violation of human rights by the profiteering of health and support a single payer health care system. Supporting honks of cars, we filled Michigan Ave with “Everybody in! Nobody out!” and “We are here, we will fight! Healthcare is a human right!”

Also, having dinner with Time Magazine’s person of he year, Dr. Arthur Chen (and hearing him speak) is pretty inspiring. Mix in with that some amazing competitive volleyball games for a tourney and you’ve got yourself a pretty perfect day off. 

Exhausted, inspired, sore, hoarse voice, and yet, still full of energy. Give me more. There’s still so much more work to do. 

Solidarity forever.

Remember when I was personally invited to the White House recently? That West Wing is pretty spiffy. And there’s a bowling alley underground in the complex too! Who’d a thunk?
Requesting time off for rotations was interesting to say the least.
"Sorry I can’t come to work, some guy invited me to some place in DC. Or rather some people who work for him…." Can’t really turn down an invite from the big guy, haha. 
Apparently some friends said my look was reminiscent of Doctor Who/Sherlock/Captain Jack. Now where did I put my sonic screwdriver?
