About Me

Hi there! I am Mrs. MD PhD. Okay… at the moment, I am just Mrs PhD and a medical student. MD is still a few years away. If you are wondering if I have spent most of my adult life in school, you would be absolutely right. And if you are wondering how loonified I must be, to voluntarily sign up for so much school, the answer is– LOTS! Truly, if I dwell on the above two statements and on my self-imposed poverty, I can get myself pretty depressed. Long years in grad school will tend to do that. Oh, and other side effects may include cynicism, isolation, frequent feeling of anxiety, occasional feeling of hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities most normal people would consider normal. Please see your doctor if you experience any of those symptoms. These may be signs of a dangerous condition known as procrastination.

Procrastination while writing my dissertation was the genesis of this blog. But after trying out so many other time sucking venues (Internet kitten videos? Long Wikipedia useless-information finding sessions where after clicking all those links you don’t remember what you were originally looking for? Anyone?), I figured I might as well do something creative while I procrastinate. I am one of those freaks of nature that enjoy writing. Scientific writing is fun. Although in controlled doses. Definitely not in the copious quantities when you are trying to write your dissertation. But I enjoy writing (and reading) about science and medicine. Yes, even after years of grad school induced jadedness, deep down, I am still passionate about science and medicine. This blog follows those and some of my other interests, some of which I cultivated out of choice (policy, technology, education, art, fashion), and others of necessity (frugal living, healthy living).
