Hey guys, it’s Whatever Wednesdays, but I’ve been having some problems with my WP-Admin. Something changed between yesterday and today so that I can’t access the full WP-Admin dashboard.

Should Metal Roofs be the Standard? #illumedati



Hey everyone… it’s Medicine Mondays. I hope everyone had a Happy Easter weekend. It’s kind of ironic, that I’m posting late about “Why Does Medicine Move So Slowly?” I was supposed to post more about The House Buying Itch, but I wasn’t able to talk to my colleagues about their experiences with buying houses as residents. Rather than push out an unfinished post, I decided to switch gears, with plan to return to The House […]
