Study Thoughts: Oral Exams

First off, apologies for another post on studying. Not the most exciting of topics. I just wanted to elaborate a bit on how I've been studying lately, in particular for oral exams.

Life This Week: Toronto, Wellness, & Art

Happy November! It's pretty wintery already in Edmonton, with some snow on the ground and the sidewalks getting dicey. The hospital has its Christmas lights up, which I side-eyed last week but fully appreciated walking home today post time-change. Residency is going alright; much the usual these days. Here are a few things I've appreciated lately:

East Coast Adventures -- Week 1

This space is turning into a bit of a travel blog. I promise I do still have a job -- vacations just happen to be more interesting to write about.

Right now I'm halfway through a two-week family trip to eastern Canada. We're finishing up in the Maritimes and heading into Quebec tomorrow. Here's my journaling on what we've seen so far (and I apologize for the length!):

Conference Life: Toronto & San Diego

I spent half of September not at work, thanks to the Canadian and American radiation oncology conferences being back-to-back. It's been an invigorating and exhausting mix of learning, exploring, and socializing. And such fun. I'm really grateful to have gotten to attend both this year.
First up was CARO in Toronto. We stayed at the conference hotel, the beautiful Hilton right downtown.

Life This Week: Urban Gardening, Petting Zoo, & A River Valley Sunset

This week has been all pre-conference hustle gearing up for heading to Toronto on Tuesday for CARO. I'm looking forward to catching up with friends and staying right downtown (AGO visit?). Otherwise life has been good. We're enjoying some late summer weather, which will hopefully stick around despite the elms looking increasingly autumn-like. Here are a few things I've appreciated lately...

New Month, Same Goals

Happy September! Time to commit some goals to paper. They're not much different this month compared to previous ones; clearly these remain tough things for me.

Icefields Parkway & Calgary

My mom and I had a nice little road trip together this past weekend. We set out early on Saturday to the mountains. The weather was gorgeous; we really couldn't have asked for a nicer day.

Life This Week: John Walter Museum, Situation, & Cariwest

I noticed some yellow leaves on the elms in my neighbourhood this morning. Not impressed. It's only August. At least nature redeemed itself with the solar eclipse, which I've got to say was not exactly what I'd expected (only 70% here), but still very cool. The best thing really was how it brought everyone from nurses to patients to physicists out to the hospital parking lot to take a look. It was nice to share the experience (and viewing glasses -- only one person actually had them). Here are some other things I've appreciated lately:

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.
