A part of me believes that the camera feature of cellphones was developed so that I can take pictures of random Robert Downey Jr./Iron Man related things that I see (ex. this one from the supermarket) and share it with complete strangers online.

Things that you don’t really think about until you have to pay for your own groceries and not mom and dad: how good bacon is kinda pretty pricey.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."

Dear Jesus (or whoever else is there)

Why is Robert Downey Jr. so weird?

Shoutout to that friend you were never close to nor do you talk to often but, for some reason, likes to update you on the guy you’ve gone out with maybe once literally years ago—

Re: 24-hour shift, hour #16

When I was an intern, which isn’t even two months ago, I remember feeling pretty crabby whenever I was on night call and it felt like I was working and everybody else was sleeping.  

The seniors on call watch over whatever the interns are doing, and of course for big emergencies, they’re there.  But if they trust the interns enough or the interns are good, they get to rest.  Yes, they’re there for 24 hours straight but it’s a lot better than being an intern on call.

I remember I’d be in the middle of working on an admission at 3am and I’d see one of my seniors pass me by on their way to the linen room to pick up another blanket because they got a little chilly during their sleep.  And I would think to myself "I cannot wait ‘til I’m in that position" and "You lucky jerk".  It’s really all a rite of passage; being an intern is a rite of passage.

Now that I’m the senior on call, it’s like, yes, I think the interns on call tonight are actually good but … I feel guilty if I go to sleep and they’re working their asses off?

So I’m up at 1am.  And I’ll continue to be up two hours from now, and two hours after that.

I just feel like if they’re working, I should be up at least.
