I am taking a hiatus from Mad Medicine.
I have instituted an employment ban on myself.
For the past decade of my short life, I have focused solely on the attainment of my medical degree, completing two years of internship and the year of community service in 2009 that inspired this blog in the first place. The first half of this year found me floundering around in unchartered waters: namely, formulating a life-plan for myself, one that was not predestined by the rules of the Department of Health.
For the first time in forever, I can choose whether or not to work. And I can enjoy the luxury of waking up late on a Saturday morning, in fact every single Saturday morning, consecutively, in a row, knowing that next weekend I will not be on call, and can enjoy breakfast at 11am again while reminiscing the craziness of the previous night's party.
So for the next few weeks I have chosen unemployment.
Which means, no patients. (Besides the friends and family who call regularly for advice and prescriptions.)
I'm going into hibernation for a little while, and Mad Medicine will lie dormant while I focus on another little literary adventure....
Feel free to read older posts, and reminisce on the journey you took with me during the escapade of 2009/2010...
Thanks for all the encouragment, criticism, and hilarity.
Thus, I leave you with the everlasting and ominous words of the Universe...I mean, Mr Universe:
"I'll be back."
