Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today I’m just going to do a post on Thanksgiving 2017. This should be pretty short. Thanksgiving 2017 First things first. I’m actually working on Thanksgiving so I won’t be having Thanksgiving Dinner with my family. With the way my schedule works, I always work on Thursdays unless I happen to take that particular 8 day shift off. However, because we all work on Thursdays, we have double staff, […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. This is going to be a short post on the culture of Medicine, especially the concept of “resilience“. So every year, a fresh group of bright-eyed 1st year medical students start medical school. The vast majority of them start the year with ambitions to be the best doctor they can be and for most of them I think there is a feeling of “I can’t believe I’m going to […]

Falling Off the Wagon
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays today. Today I’m going to do some introspection and talk about “Falling Off the Wagon“. So, you may recall a few months ago I did a post called “Trimming the Fat“. It was mostly based around cutting out extra stuff I didn’t need in order to keep my budget efficient. Additionally, it had the added benefit of allowing me to exercise my Value Cost Ratio more. I was able to stick […]

iPhone X
Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. It’s been awhile since I did my impressions of the iPhone X, back in mid September. Well, the pre-order happened and I managed to snag 2, one for my wife and one for me. And now, it’s time for Average Joe’s Final iPhone X Review. First things first: I don’t want people to think I can just blow $1150 on a phone (twice!) whenever I feel like it. This […]

How's the Match Going?
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. I just realized that I haven’t really dedicated any posts to the one thing weighing on the minds of US 4th year medical students everywhere… The Match. So today I’m going to ask everyone “How’s The Match Going?” How’s the Match Going? So it’s mid November now, the Match should already be in full swing. By now you’re gone on some interviews and are putting together your rank list. […]

My Little Ones
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. This post today isn’t necessarily related to Finance Fridays, however, I felt it was at least circumferentially related, as I’ll explain. Today we’re going to talk about “Starting a Family.” Starting a Family? Yea. So here’s the background story: I was talking to someone recently who just finished fellowship in neuroradiology. He moved back home where his family was and started a new job. Currently, he was just crashing at […]
