A new form of procrastination – just what I needed!!!
My Pediatric Board Exam is in precisely 88 days, my wife and kids are still with her family on vacation, the house is quiet, decluttered and ready for studying… except I didn’t take my Dexedrine today…
Ah well, becoming a blogger seems like more fun anyway.
So here’s the skinny on me:
I’m 29-years-old (for another 9 days), I’ve completed 11 years of post-secondary education (I know… life draining… more to come on that…) including an undergrad in medical sciences, my M.D., a residency in pediatrics and 1 year of a fellowship in pediatric allergy and immunology.
I live in Vancouver with my wonderful wife who is a pediatric nurse (yes, we met exactly how you’d guess… scandalous… yay for cliches…), our sassy 6-year-old and our super-chill 6-month-old.
This blog has a few purposes:
1. To vent about my frustrations with the process of becoming a doctor
2. To explain some of the methods I have tried – whether successfully or unsuccessfully – to mitigate the stresses of my work
3. To enlighten people on the funny side of medicine
4. And lastly, to describe my path to finding my one true love – creative writing
Err, I mean my wife…
Creative writing is my second true love…
Hope you find this blog informative, funny, useful, whatever…

Cheers, and a Happy 2015 to all!!!
