medblrs as characters in Supernatural! :) — Asked by irandommomentsdevida

md-admissions:

I. Love. This. Question. Because I think medicine is like Supernatural. Seriously.

I’m about to miss a TON of my favorite people (I apologize!!) but I’m going to do my best. 

cranquis: Bobby Singer. In the medblr universe he is our fount of knowledge and humor. He reassures, jokes, keeps it real. Also, I imagine he, like Bobby, would probably say this regarding some of his more…colorful patients: image

baffledinbrooklyn: It was HARD deciding this one! But I’m going with Chuck Shurley. Like Bobby, he’s someone whose looking at the big picture that we medblrs will often visit for information. Chuck is endearing because he, like baffled, makes an effort to emphasize that he’s a normal person with a far-from-normal (leaning more towards amazing) job. image

wayfaringmd: Ellen Harvelle. Down-to-earth, capable, no-nonsense. Her tumblr is like the Roadhouse, a critical pitstop for the roaming medblr in search of knowledge or a good chuckle. When I need advice or a tune-up, I always listen to her. :) image

imaresident: Sheriff Jody Mills. From her posts, she always strikes me as the person who has a level-head even when nothing around her makes sense or is going bonkers. I’d want her as my senior resident. image

medicalstate: Sam Winchester. He’s smart, well-spoken, thoughtful. But EVERYONE can tell that Tom is a beast on the wards. He is undoubtedly nailing it right now in his intern year! I also imagine that he gives good hugs.image

descantforhope: Mary Winchester. descant brings her nurturing, positive energy to the medblr community. A gorgeous, wonderful mom who also kicks butt, academically, personally, and in all other areas of life.image

aspiringdoctors: Charlie Bradbury. The geek-chic sister everyone wished they had who loves LoTR and is a proud nerd. Won’t hesitate to defend what’s important and right. Also, both are on top of their fashion game. image

mynotes4usmle: Tessa the Reaper. Lovely, wise, and an unexpected guide. While in Supernatural, Tessa is a surprising guide and ally to Dean, Renata is a parallel for me and many others in a world where some would rather hoard their test tips and knowledge than empower others(I’m looking at you, SDN). She’s someone you want in your corner! image

ladykaymd: Linda Tran. Whip-smart, capable, loving, a fearless champion. When you think you know everything about her and how badass she is, she surprises you and reminds you that she is exactly what you thought: a medical goddess in the making. Everyone wants to be her. This is fact. image

Imagine, instead of Crowley, anti-vaxxers, misogynists, and the patriarchy as ladykay slaps them hard with knowledge.

ermedicine: Balthazar. Because you have to be committed, smart, and a healthy dose of sassy to survive a hectic ER. I imagine ermedicine slinging awesome lines like this during his shifts: image

beyondtheoath: Kevin Tran. Thoughtful and gifted with a natural ease in a profession that is pretty much all about the unnatural. image

hartmd: Castiel. It’s something about the writing style. Analytical and meticulous but ringing with a lot of heart.  image

ninjatengu:  Garth. He balances crazy medlife with a fulfilling life beyond it. Sports! Friends! Food! Yummy drinks! And he’s got a refreshing, unique take on medlife, much like Garth. image

modernathena90: Jo Harvelle. Spunky and fearless. image

irandommomentsdevida: I wanted to say Gabriel, but…you gotta be Becky. Minus that creepy episode with the love potion. I deny it’s existence. Because Becky is enthusiastic, unapologetic for her passions, and always genuine. She’s fun and reminds us all that yes, the Supernatural/med world is often scary and serious, but it can be a lot of fun too!

 image

kyidyl: Krissy Chambers. Hunter/medblr in training, but already showing some serious badass potential.

 image

thenotquitedoctor: the Impala, stalwart and true! You can always rely on TNQD. 

thebiopsyIf we have a Bobby, medblrs must have a Crowley. A fan favorite, funny, and he’s the man with the skills and knowledge you need when you’re in a bind (podcast, med school consults via social media). I imagine you to have excellent sartorial style as well :D image

How do you think I did? ;)

Supernatural Medicine.

Recently, I referred to a post where the Crafty Premed had listed me as part of the crash course through the medical tumblr, or medblr community. I was really humbled by that. 

Today, I am once again very flattered for being mentioned in another list, this time by MD Admissions. I am not a follower of the show but you are far too kind in terms of the description. That would be really something if I could go beast mode on the ward. Thanks again!

Today, this blog reached the 50,000 mark. I wanted to take a moment to thank every follower who has continued to read and to support this blog over the years. I have not had a chance to invest myself fully in writing thoughtful posts over the past few weeks due to the impending deadline for my residency application. I really appreciate the support and overwhelmingly positive feedback during this time. 
Once everything settles down, I will try to resume my posting as previous. Until then, I apologize for the delays and downtime. Thank you all again for your readership, your amazing energy, and your incredible support.
Sincerely,Tom of the Medical State of Mind

Medical State of Mind Turns Three.
It feels like almost yesterday that I was celebrating the second birthday for the Medical State of Mind. The days sure have flown by at a blazing pace! Here now near the end of my third year, I would like to address you, the reader, and thank you for joining me through this past year.
It has been a year unlike any other I have ever had. There have been tremendous struggles along the way. I have had great moments of success and even greater moments of failure. It has been a year where I have learned about myself, about life, and about death. 
Through all of this, I have tried to document my journey as best as I can, between the bites of food and the moments between books. Through all of this, you have continued to read, to ask, and to comment on my journey. You have been there every step of the way. 
I thank you all very much for that.
If you are willing to come this far, I hope you are willing to come a little further. There is still one last leg to this journey. I hope you are all ready to join me for another year of reflections, stories, and commentaries on the life of a medical student.
Thank you all very much for your continued readership.

To the readers and followers,
Third year is slowly drawing to a close. It has been an incredible year filled with excitement and hardship, with joy and sorrow, with life and death. It has been a year filled with challenging days and busy nights. It has been a year that has time and time again made me reconsider and reaffirm my decision to pursue medicine. 
Through all of this and the scattered, speckled entries of this blog, you have continued to follow, to read, and to comment. 
Today I reach another milestone, one that I would never have thought possible when I first began writing this blog. 
Over these last few months, it has been a pleasure to be able to share this journey with all of you. From my first reader to the last, thank you all for your continued support and readership. You have continued to be a source of inspiration and one that has helped me to reflect on and to marvel at what medicine and humanity can achieve.

To the Readers,

This blog has always been an outlet for me. It offers me a moment of clarity to gather myself and my thoughts. Though I do my best to check the emotions at the door and keep what I write honest but professional, feelings are not a breed to be tamed.

Thank you very much to those of you who offered words of support in light of my recent post. I am very grateful for your kindness in this difficult time. A lot of issues are coming to a head, from exams and rotations, to career and family planning. It is a strange place to be in this journey.

This, I am sure, will pass. 

Thanks again to everyone for your continued support and patience. I look forward to sharing more stories as circumstances allow. 

Sincerely,
Tom of the Medical State of Mind

My Most Sincere Gratitude

To the readers,

Thank you so much for being a part of this intimate and very happy moment with both of us. I would like to also thank you all for your support and encouragement of Tom’s Tumblr.  

As much as Tom’s Medical State of Mind might have inspired your dreams and aspirations, your words have had a similar if not bigger impact on Tom and I thank every one of you for being there for him on his journey and ours together.

Last but not least, I wish all of you a happy new year and the very best for everyone. :)

Sincerely,
"His Fiancée" 

Connected. 
Medicine is no walk in the park. Though I have made my best efforts to keep this blog updated as regularly as the last two years, it has been a challenge to match the original pace I had set for myself.
Despite this however, you, the followers and readers of this blog have continued to visit, ask questions, and leave comments. Your participation and readership have continued to drive this blog forward. For that, you have my gratitude and thanks.
As 2012 draws to a close, I want to ask everyone what you would like to see different for the upcoming year. Your feedback and suggestions are much appreciated.
Thank you again for your continued support.

Celebrating Two Years of Writing.
Today is the second birthday for the Medical State of Mind. We have come so far and have so much further to go! Luckily, we are half way through this journey and only two years remain before I graduate. I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the continued support and readership. 
While this blog’s description may say that it is about my personal journey through medical school and beyond, what it does not say is that it is a shared journey. It is a shared journey with people, with readers, with you. 
The journey within may be influenced by my training, but my journey without has been influenced by this community. You have asked me questions that challenged me, that forced me to look inwards, and made me better understand myself. You have inspired me to dream, to hope, to feel. You have willed this blog to succeed, something I could never have done without you.
Thank you for joining me on this journey of medicine.

20,000 Milestone.
It took a year and a half for this blog to reach 10,000; it only took six months to reach 20,000. To everyone who has made it possible, thank you for your readership and your dedication. Since I have already given my thanks very recently, I will not go on ad nauseum.
For the 10,000 milestone, I had made a video (which unfortunately I had to take down). I will think of something special to do for this milestone over the weekend. You can also leave your ideas down in the comments below. 
Thanks again for all of your support and until next time, take care.
