Cryptocurrency Volatility
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. The last few weeks we’ve talked about Gambling and Bitcoin and stuff. Today I’m going to a short post about Cryptocurrency Volatility. In my previous posts I highlighted that cryptocurrency is at its core, the highest stakes of gambling. By buying cryptocurrency you are part of a group trying to assign value to something that currently has an unknown value and nothing to back it. Now, I’ve also explained […]

What is Medical School like?
Hi everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again. We’re going to switch gears and do some reflection on where I’ve come from, meaning my medical school years. I think a lot of undergrad (and even high school) pre-meds think about this question: “What is Medical School like?” **Apologies, this didn’t post like it was scheduled to for some reason. The answer to this question is complex. You will hear many, many different answers to this question. However, […]

The Long Bet
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays. Today, I’m doing a short detour from my Let’s Gamble posts.

What is Torticollis? 1
Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays and this post is probably a little late. However, I wanted to take today to talk about something that is not uncommon, but is probably not well understood by the general public.

Torticollis has a variety of other names like “crick […]

Pocket Aces
Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays and I was all set to continue my “Let’s Gamble” segment in regards to Cryptocurrency. However, I ran into some problems, and so I’ll take some time here to discuss them today in my post “No Bitcoin for Hawaii”. So after some deliberation, I decided I was going to buy $1000 worth of cryptocurrency and then just let it sit for 20 years and just watch how it did. I thought […]
