I started writing a couple blog posts, but they got pretty preachy, and I am in NO place to be preachy, let me assure you. And I also remembered the purpose of this blog: to share inspiration, not to rant my opinions to The Intarwebs.
YES it is exactly what it sounds like — a blog about how to make charts in Excel. Yawn, right? But the posts are extremely well written, have extremely good advice, are very pretty to look at, and sometimes have non-Excel related content that is pretty cool. I love that it exists.
A website/blog/community of converts from Calvinism to Catholicism. I am excited because I have been getting into some Proto/Catho discussions recently, and this site has some cool articles. Not that I can understand all of them…
I am learning about the kidney, and there are some AWESOME feedback mechanisms involved there. And if there is one thing that is BEAUTIFUL, it is modeling feedback systems with partial differential equations. I don’t really even remember how the math works anymore, but it gives me indescribable glee to see bifurcation diagrams of kidney flow in rats:
It’s a blog. I met the doctor who writes it! He’s pretty awesome. I keep meeting doctors who are exactly the kind of doctor I want to be, and they are all family doctors. Hmm, I wonder what that means. Well, I’m still a first year, so I. am. not. thinking about it!
… And that’s it for inspiration. Well, there are other things, but they aren’t on the internet: good conversations about medicine and society, selflessly generous MS2′s, and passionate Catholic doctors spending their precious free time on building a local Catholic Medical Association. Women’s group with other Catholic medical students. It turns out life is pretty sweet, if you stop and smell the roses and whatnot. :)
