Also, I read the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation of War and Peace the summer before medical school and have loved it ever since and re-read it twice. Which is to say, don’t worry: you’ll still have time to read.

I mostly read fiction by women. Among women who are writing now, I love Jennifer Egan, Donna Tartt, and Lorrie Moore. Also, don’t let the horrifying sexism of House of God get you down—medicine has a place ready for you.

introduced me to the concept of secondary resilience today. I finally have a word for the inspiration and strength I draw from the and asylum-seekers we care for. These kids teach me what great acts of love, strength and bravery are possible in a human life.

I had one where it was clearly just blood, and I had to move to get the CSF. Was left wondering if I should’ve withdrawn and tapped again—in a rural place where PCR is a send-out, so lack of certainty on cell counts could mean more days of drug for the kid.
