West Coast Vibes

It's a quiet call evening, so I'm laying in bed writing a paper scrolling through Instagram. I just wanted to share my favourite west coast photographer, Tyler Forest-Hauser.

Life This Week: Froyo, Heritage Festival, & Reading

Summer's flying by! It's been a good mix of work and relaxation so far though; which is also the plan for the weeks to come. Clearly my pager is on the same page; it hasn't bothered me much at all this long weekend. Besides rounding in the mornings, I've been free to lie on the couch, walk around the mall, and hang out with friends -- the wonders of home call. Here are some things I've appreciated this week:

South Korea - Day 6 - Jeju Island

Still catching up on travel posts...here's our last day on Jeju Island!

This morning we picked up some triangular gimbap for a quick breakfast, then took two buses to the east side of Jeju Island to visit Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as Sunrise Peak.

Day in the Life: Review Clinic + Field Trip

I haven't written one of these in a while, now that I'm on my home service and the days are pretty routine. This afternoon was a bit different though, so I thought I'd share.

7:40 am - Walked to work. Smoky out from the BC forest fires.

8 am - In the radiation oncology review clinic this morning. This is a once-a-week clinic where we see patients who are currently undergoing radiotherapy. They're quick visits, to check in on how they're doing and assess for side effects.

Saskatoon & Fort Battleford

My mom and I ventured out to Saskatoon the weekend before last. It's a 5-hour drive from Edmonton and neither of us had been.

Life This Week: Go-Karting, Chinatown, & Solstice

Summer in Edmonton is pretty great. The days are long, so work doesn't seem as all-encompassing, and there's tons to do in the city. Last weekend I made an impromptu visit to Saskatoon with my mom -- neither of us had been and it was perfect road trip weather. We really liked the city; I'll have to post about it soon. Here's a picture from an evening walk in Saskatoon's river valley -- and some other things I've appreciated lately:

Life This Week: Fireworks, River Valley Walks, & A New Planner

It's been a wonderful long weekend -- my mom's over to visit, my pager's been quiet, and the weather is gorgeous. Home call weekends don't get much better than this :) Here are some other things I've appreciated this week:

South Korea - Day 5 - Jeju Island

Still catching up on South Korea!

This morning we were up early to fly from Busan to Jeju Island, a volcanic island off Korea's south coast.

Today feels momentous -- it's both Canada's 150th birthday and my first day of fourth-year residency. You can probably guess which one of those is provoking some anxiety. I know it seems silly, but writing "R4" for the first time after my name today was frightening!
