Busy day today, too... Getting my butt kicked, and I'm not even back to work yet.

This evening, I finally watched the season finale of Glee. I've actually watched the show off and on over the last year, with the help of DVD's and Hulu. I'm not sure why I like it - but I do. Maybe its because the geeks actually sorta win? No matter what, it's actually an upbeat show that isn't quite comedy, and isn't really drama... so where does it fall, anyway?

No... my school didn't have glee club... and I stopped singing choir after 9th grade.

Lost on Youtube

It's been a busy weekend - still have a bunch of stuff to do, and I just got lost on Youtube looking at the Fifa World Cup concert videos for about 20 minutes.

I found this one:

I got this song as a "song of the week" download on iTunes a few months. I've listened to some of K'naan's music, and while I don't like all of it, some is quite good. He also did a collaboration track with my favorite artist - Matisyahu, which was different.

Anyway - I really like the tone of this song... I'm not sure why, but I figured I'd share it.

Day 2

Driving home from synagogue tonight, one of my medic classmates texted me. "just had a great code, 6 or 7 different rhythms, complicated as hell"

I've been out of school for about a year now, and it's funny - a bunch of us "baby medics" talk amongst ourselves whenever we have a "good" call. Part of it goes back to our conversation before class started every day, where we'd talk about what we'd seen in clinical that was interesting. I learned a variety of things from those conversations, including WHY a certain command doc hates Fentanyl. Anyway, I think there are 5 or 6 of us that will make it a point to share our experiences with each other after a really "good" or really "bad" call. We usually learn from it, and we are often the only ones that UNDERSTAND the excitement of having that "cool" call, as many of the old-head medics have seen it all already.

Anyway - I gotta get back to moving. I'm moving across the hall in the apartment, to a room with a WINDOW!

Starting Over

So, last night I was awake in bed and thinking. I've blogged before, but it has been a long time. I figured that I'd go back and start blogging again. I figure that I'll start by setting a goal of posting SOMETHING at least once a day.

I've been Out Of Service for the last 2 months after falling off a bike while doing the IPMBA Bike Medic training for my volunteer squad.

I fractured my right humerus and my radial nerve was damaged by the fracture. My humerus was secured by a plate and six screws, and has healed at this point. Now I am getting close to being cleared for duty again, while wearing a splint.

I've been keeping myself busy by taking summer session college classes, and going to therapy twice a week.

I gotta get to class now, so I'll discuss therapy next time.
