Medical internship is not a good time to start blogging. The demands of long work days- mostly around 12 hours, 6 days a week- compounded by the demands of a physically fit black lab, an attention-seeking golden retriever, a new home, a part time job advising premed students, and a wonderful husband who wants to spend time with his new wife all mean I don’t have tons of time. In fact, sometimes it feels like I have no time. So why restart blogging?
I miss it! I love the forced reflection blogging brings, and the inspiration I get from looking at what some of the blogs I follow post. As a blogger, I liked posting my own projects, proud moments, and other significant things in my life. It helped me focus on the positive parts of my life, and that’s why I think in this particularly difficult season of life, I’m going to start back up.
At least for now. Right now, I’m on an elective which means I work NORMAL hours…I get in at 7, leave around 5, and don’t work weekends. I’ve got 5 more weeks of that, and then I’m back on wards…which means 7-7ish 6 days per week. And I work that schedule through the new year. We’ll see what happens to blogging then, but it feels good to be back!
