Possibly by Andrea Guerra.

This has been a tremendously difficult time for me. CaRMS has continued to be the top story of the week. There have been good news and bad news. Everyone is stressed and that is a bad environment to find yourself in. Whatever happens, I need to stay positive.

Here is some mood music to start the weekend. Over the next two days, my agenda includes: car maintenance, working on my presentation, and reviewing opioid prescribing.

Bike Song by Sleepy Dreamers.

So far, I have discovered that palliative medicine can be tremendously rewarding but also very emotionally exhausting. Some patients are at peace with their decisions of comfort care; others meet us in fear and denial. But universally, everyone shares a sense of regret over the opportunities lost, the little things missed, and the future memories that will never be.

Lost (Frank Ocean Cover) by Trails and Ways.

Three days after my exam, my mind still lingers on all of my mistakes. Now, half way through my first week on a new elective, I cannot afford to. I need to focus. I need to stay in this moment and not on what was or what could have been.

I Feel That Too by Jessie Baylin.

Today, I received a call from a close friend and classmate on rotation across the province. It was a unexpected but pleasant surprise. We took a moment to catch up with how our respective electives were going thus far. Of course, the conversation eventually turned to CaRMS and we shared a collective groan.

"This is like applying to medical school all over again…but ten times over."

"Yeah, I feel that way too."
