Time Flies When You're ..... Busy

It has been 2 weeks since my last blog and now I begin to realise that a fair proportion of my time is being consumed by work. I can barely imagine how things must have been only a few years ago with 100+ hour weeks. This week though I am on holiday! By holiday I mean staying at home rather than going to work, this means I actually get some time to do things I would have normally done during the day as a student. It also gives me time to catch up with several thousand blog posts in my google reader, I've just spent the last couple of hours skim reading far too many blog posts! I'm now as up to date as I'll ever be. Now I've caught up the prospect of reading blogs again isn't quite as scary.

I've already been bleeped several times since being on holiday - I've not answered of course (I did that once as I was expecting a call and have been chastised ever since) but there is a sense of curiosity - who is it and what do they want? 

Today I decided to bake double chocolate chip cookies (they are bloody good too). For no other reason than because I could. Perhaps working life is sending me slightly insane. I'm still enjoying being a doctor, although at times my job can be a bit stale (mainly due to the nature of my post). Nevertheless, during the day, time passes quickly and inevitably there isn't enough time in the day to do everything. When on ward cover - time either flies, when you're busy, or trickles by if you're sat in the mess. I definitely prefer being busy. 

I have little else to say at the moment, although I do have plenty of potential blogging topics on the cards. I'm going to try a little and often approach to blogging to see if I can get back into the zone. I'll be back before the end of the week... I promise.

Oh, and finally, I bought myself an iPhone 3G - it rocks my socks!

BoxerMa said...

what's the reason for letting you off work?

Calavera said...

Welcome back doc! My brother is an F1 too, newly graduated, and he's finding the workload to be neverending... you just enjoy your time off and bake some more!

Look forward to reading your next posts!

Ms-Ellisa said...

I-phone?! WOW...!!! In Greece it's still compatible only with one company... so the rest of us will just have to wait...

You've been taged!

Mmmm! Those choc chip cookies look good.

Glad to hear you're enjoying life on the wards too. I hope you don't forget about your patients like that last tray of cookies! ;-)

Hey my ambition is to become a doctor and I am really enjoying reading your blog. I am in year 12 at the moment. Yep, my iPhone 3g is rocking my socks too.

The Angry Medic said...

Whoa! You're...you're a DOCTOR?! What when how? And why didn't you give me a kick via email and TELL my lazy ass??

Congrats mate. I just entered clinical school so I'm now one of those annoying students hovering just at the edge of your peripheral vision, nipping in at the most inopportune moments to ask you questions and disrupt your train of thought. (Got the description bang-on didn't I? See, I AM good at this annoying med student lark.)

I'll be back mate. Looking forward to reading your stories. And now I can yell at you for help too! You really should've been more wary about putting med students on your bloglist :)
