My new job, and in particular my new colleagues make me really happy.  They are just good, nice people.  I am one lucky, lucky woman.

Can’t decide how I feel about the lamp. Is it too yellow?

If I keep it I’m going to get a grey lampshade for it (unless you brilliant folks have another suggestion). First photo is ambient lighting, 2nd is with recessed lights on.

Someone just emailed me wanting to trade their evening shift tomorrow for my night shift tomorrow.

I was having the shittiest day and this just made it SO MUCH better!!! Let’s just hope she confirms the switch!!

EDIT: Switch confirmed. Made my week!

Scored two of these lamps on Joss and Main - they were listed as “In another member’s cart” and I refreshed until they became available!  I think they’ll look perfect on the two night stands that are being delivered tomorrow.  My bedroom is finally taking shape - two months after moving in!

Last night the resident who was on the overnight and I had a conversation about how much we love Baltimore.  So much better than the general, “It’s New Haven” *eyeroll* conversations I used to have!

If you have the book out and a blank stack of notecards, that’s basically like studying, right?

Related: I am now following a bunch of Baltimore’s food trucks on twitter. Procrastination FTW!

Surgery resident to EM resident about a patient who was super super sick with terrible veins: “My attending would like this patient to have a 16 gauge IV [very large IV] so that we can transfuse rapidly. The central line you put in won’t be fast enough.”

Me, overhearing this conversation: “Well, I’d like to fart rainbows but neither of these things is happening.”
