 Grey’s Anatomy: Thanks for the Memories

Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.

6 days until Grey’s is back in my life.

Can’t come soon enough.

So apparently due to federal legislation changes, my work study from LAST summer counts towards my total financial aid package for that aid year (2013-2014) and now I have to pay that back or apply for more loans to cover it. You heard me. PAY BACK THE MONEY I WORKED 35 HOURS A WEEK FOR.

Can they even do that?

Is this real life?

Just realized I payed taxes on the money I earned too…
Seriously… Any one have any sense if this is legal? I don’t understand how new legislation can affect old financial aid packages…

what’s in the white coat

So I’m a little late to the game but my roommate so nicely washed my white coat tonight and I finally had an excuse to empty all the pockets out.

  • ID badge with the key to CL Psych office. Yes that is a key cover. Yes it’s a rainbow. I like to spice things up.
  • Pilot G207 blue ink pen. There is no better.
  • Pen light. Even if you aren’t on your neuro rotation, your resident will love you if you carry one around with you. You will need it no matter what, trust me.
  • Chapstick, the necessary evil.
  • Wallet for coffee and snack breaks.
  • Pager to look official. (mostly because there is barely any cell service in the hospital)
  • Nivea hand creme. BEST THING EVER. Combats the dryness of Purell, especially in the winter when your hands are already fighting a losing battle.
  • My own bottle of hand sanitizer because we all know when you need it the most a dispenser is no where to be found. Also, for before snacks because you can never be too safe in the hospital.
  • Maxell. Your new best friend. Seriously, I don’t think I would’ve survived neuro without it.
  • Whitecoat clipboard. It folds up and fits nicely in your pocket. Only downside is your papers will forever be creased in the middle.
  • Pocket Medicine. I’ve only used it occasionally and I carry more out of habit now but my friends on medicine tell me they use it every day.
