So, I was super busy for a few days and forgot to take my daily videos for my “Pause: For 3 Seconds a Day” 2010 video project. I was going to just scrap the idea altogether but then I realized that there really was no need to do so. I could just pick up where I left off and simply exclude the days, on which I forgot to take a video. Yes, there will be “holes” in my daily project. Yes, that’s less than perfect. But beauty is in imperfection.
Enjoy my latest, updated video! I might soon be changing the style, but this is what I have so far!

I just realized a few minutes ago that I had know idea what the date was. Life has been a bit of a blur lately. Not that I’m complaining. It’s just that I’ve realized again for the one billionth time that I am horrible at doing nothing. Really, I suck at it.
On Sunday I went to the Mr. Transman 2010 show in Brooklyn. It was SOOOO awesome! I got to see some friends (I love you Filthy, Nate and Jen!) that I hadn’t seen in forever and well, I just had a total blast. I forgot to take photos, but I did take some videos, which I might be uploading in the future.
Yesterday I was a total sloth. I stayed in bed all day long and ate horribly fattening foods and watched reruns on Netflix Instant Play.
My life has become a series of “wake up, drink coffee, run, eat, dance, sleep” on infinite repeat. But it ain’t so bad. Life is pretty darn good, actually.
Enjoy the photos with this post. The top one is me with my sweet new bumper sticker, purchased at the show. The second two were taken yesterday during my walk to pick up pizza. I heart my new hood.
If you want to work in the medical field there are many options, there are even medical assistant schools if you feel you just want to assist a Dr. and there are also many different types of medical specialty and tech schools. One of the best things about the medical industry is that it is a career that will always be around, so you always have job security. Working in the medical field can also bring great satisfaction knowing that you are able to help people get better.
Becoming a surgeon or doctor can seem very intimidating, but there are so many more great jobs available in the medical industry. Medical jobs are always in high demand so you could consider becoming a nurse, an x-ray tech, or even something like a dietitian. There are many specialty schools out there that can train you in different areas, and there are many good places where you can find great info on nursing schools, medical assistant schools and schools that train you to be an MRI or x-ray tech. The jobs in the field are endless, so take some time to think and decide what is best for you.
So, I am happy to announce that my new website will be called doctorpsychobabble.com. Don’t try to visit it yet, because it’s still in progress. Anyway, it’s going to rock, and I’ve been working on it all day. I hope to publish it in the next few days. The photo above will be the new banner. I’m still working out all the details. Anyway, I was going to keep this a secret until it was all finalized and published, but it turns out that I suck at keeping secrets.
Yesterday, I received my cap, gown, tassels, and stole thingy for graduation. I tried them on and realized that I look like a chess piece in the doctorate hat! Also, the stole thingy is blowing my mind. I can’t figure out how the damn thing is supposed to fit on my body. I even googled images of other people wearing it, and had two of my (non-medical) friends try to figure it out. I have this strange feeling that it’s perhaps the last test that I have to take before I become a real doctor. If I can figure out the stole, I have what it takes to be a doctor. If not, well, then maybe I shouldn’t have gone to med school!
Let’s hope that I figure it out.
Also, I have officially graduated in the eyes of my medical school. They sent me an email today notifying me and letting me know that my diploma will be mailed shortly.
Here is the end of the email:
Dear Dr. Campbell,
Congratulations on your completion of medical school at RUSM and good luck in your future endeavors.
Office of the Registrar
Pretty cool, hey?!
I’ve only been away from the hospital for a few days, and I already miss it. I am somewhat of a Type A personality. I like to get things accomplished quickly. And as much as I complain sometimes, I do like being busy. The past few days I have been catching up on errands, but I am quickly running out of errands! The funny thing about me though, is that I will just continue to make up things to do once I run out.
Anyway, I forced myself to take three hours off today. It was magical. I went to Prospect Park, and had a picnic with my doggies. I stripped down to my bikini and cracked open a “pleasure book.” It was truly amazing. I just relaxed and cuddled with my doggies and allowed myself to be taken away by the sun and the book. It was just what the doctor ordered.
You’re all going to really become sick of me going on and on about how awesome the park is, but I just can’t help it. It’s my happy place. As I was walking home from my picnic, I found two girls and a guy singing an opera in a tunnel. I saw a man busting out some awesome tai chi under the “Oriental Pavilion.” I watched a man play frisbee with his doggy by the glistening lake.
Now I’m home, eating goat cheese, drinking a glass of wine, and trying to figure out what to do with myself tonight. I think I shall make a yummy dinner first, perhaps a bubble bath afterwards, and then maybe do some more pleasure reading. Yay for being a bum!
