I'd rather be...

Since (I hope) I have a future in primary care, I try really hard to convince myself that every subject is important and interesting. But I just cannot get into orthopedics. I find it so, incredibly boring.  Some things I’d rather be doing right now:

-stomping grapes and learning about wine in Napa
-biking in a place with trees and a body of water
-writing for a living (interesting that having MD after one’s name makes it significantly more likely people will listen to you)
-social event planning
-working on an MPH
-eating plants
-playing with puppies
-snuggling with SO

What you rather be doing today? Or are you one of those lucky people who gets to do what you’d rather be doing?

  1. Well I will be working on article today, so I can check off writing. It's not as much fun as people think though. Anything can become a grind.

    I'd rather be on a beach vacation though. And go dancing.


  2. Oh, grape stomping! Someone should make that part of some medical school event; I'm sure it would be comparatively cathartic.

    I spent my free time today thinking about the fermented, feeding the sourdough starter, making yogurt, and attempting to make a kombucha SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast). It is incubating.

  3. I want to go into primary care too!! That's all, and I'm enjoying doing what I'd rather be doing...

  4. M. - it's true anything can become a grind, I'm just ready for a new one

    E. - making yogurt sounds awesome. Cali schools should definitely team up with Wineries!

    Dr. Blondie - hurrah for primary care! I love it so much.
