Marriage and parenting during residency
"How do you do it??" - a question I have been asked numerous times since starting residency. It is all very amazing - and exhausting. My intention is not to make this a rant-post filled with complaints about my life? I don't know, we'll see how this unfolds. Typical Work Day Hubby, baby and I... Continue Reading →

At the library…
Good morning everyone! CaRMS applications are finished. Exams are done! What do I do now? Refreshing my email a 1000x times waiting for interview emails is a waste of time.
