Sunye bebe, isn’t it San Fran.? not San Jose? It’s oki you’re still AWESOME. Nobody even noticed it.
Nope, San Jose is right. San Francisco Bay Area, but Mountain View is part of Silicon Valley, the unofficial capital of which is San Jose.
they always call it san francisco when they really mean mountain view but idk “what up mountain view!!” isn’t as fun to say as “what up san francisco/san jose”
but o i didn’t even know that mt view is in san jose the more u know i guess
LOL true. Mountain View is actually not in San Jose, my b if I implied that—they’re both part of the Silicon Valley. San Jose just happens to be the ‘capital’ of Silicon Valley, but MV and SJ are totes separate cities. Like you said, easier to say you’re from San Jose or SF because otherwise it’d be like “where??”
In a revelation that’s surprising to pretty much no one, University of Pennsylvania and Temple University ranked #1 and #2 on a list that ranks the “Most Dangerous Colleges to Go To.” Check out these staggering statistics:
Murders: UPenn had four, Temple had one.
Forcible Rapes: UPenn had 27, Temple had 34.
Robberies: Upenn had 176, Temple had 192
Aggravated assaults: UPenn had 40, Temple had 97
Burglaries: UPenn had 117, Temple had 747
Car thefts: UPenn had 28, Temple had 56
Arsons: UPenn had 0, Temple had 1
Amazingly, despite being outnumbered by Temple on almost every category, UPenn ranked more dangerous than Temple due to the fact that fewer people attend the college. There is an added element of danger about going to college in the city, but both UPenn and Temple are fine universities, and I doubt this list means anything or comes as any kind of surprise to anybody who attends there, or who has attended there…because they’re actually in the city. Unlike, say, Villanova, which ranked number 1 on a list that ranked consumption of caviar. Or not. But you get the idea. Nova sucks.
Penn is hella safe. Like you wouldn’t believe. There’s never short of 3-4 public safety officers on the same block and there are always people pouring out of one building to another at any time of night. I don’t really go west of 45th or so but yeah Penn, the most dangerous? No way. Plus HUP is like right there. If you’re at death’s door there’s no better place in the tri-state area to be than HUP. Also, the absolute lack of places like USC (esp given recent headlines), Rutgers Camden, Yale, etc = bogus list.
The person who graduates from medical school is often not the person who graduates from residency and starts practice as an attending. Those years in between are grueling and can be soul-sucking. Physicians are humans too–all the things patients want we want too. I want to have time to sit and talk with you. Sometimes I just can’t. I want to be a good doctor, a good surgeon. I want you to get better.
When I go home and things don’t go well, I am upset, and lash out at my friends and family, and I cry too. And on a selfish level, yes I want to be respected. I have not spent a single holiday in 7 years with my family, I spent them working. I have missed weddings and funerals. I haven’t taken a vacation in years because I can’t afford it. I live in a tiny apartment, and drive a 12 year old car with tape on the bumper. So when I am immediately confronted by a family or patient that I don’t care, or read these articles that say I only did this to get rich I, over time, get more and more dismayed and disgruntled. Why the #$%^ did I do this to my life if all my patients think is I’m a money-hungry dirtbag? I took anthropology in undergrad, and it doesn’t help me deal with these frustrations any better.
But I do it because I like it. Because it’s challenging. And because I want to help people–when things go right, there is no better job in the world (and that has NOTHING to do with my salary). I like that I have job security, even though reimbursement has dropped 20%, which means at least a 20% pay cut when I finish training. If I wanted to be rich, I’d have gone to business school.
I gotta stop reading the news. Or at least gotta stop reading the comments section underneath news articles. I really don’t know why I do this to myself. Some people aren’t just stupid—they’re downright cruel and inhumane. Depressing and simultaneously infuriating.
On May 9, 2012, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Dong Kim participated in helping educate the public on brain tumors with an inside look into the OR during brain surgery. Dr. Kim is the director of the Mischer Neuroscience Institute at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, TX. A UCSF medical school graduate, he trained in general surgery at Harvard and neurosurgery at UCSF.
In enneagram theory, you have one type for how you relate to the world (either 8, 9, or 1), one type for how you think (5, 6, 7) and one type for how you see yourself (2, 3, 4.) Your tri-type contains one number from each of these triads. They are listed in the order of how strongly they present in your personality.
Your core type (your strongest type) is Type 3 with a 2 wing: Type Three individuals are self-assured, confident, and driven for success. Type Threes have a great deal of energy that propels them to excel at their chosen field, and this is why the type is often called The Achiever. Although Threes may not always like it, they’re often looked up to. Type Threes, more than any other type, are the most likely to be a workaholic. When in a state of growth, Threes become more cooperative and trusting of others, like a Type Six. When stressed, Threes become withdrawn like a Type Nine. You are a Type Three with a Two wing, which means that your driven nature combines with a desire to help people. You often come off as charming and outgoing as a result.
Your second type (your next strongest type) is Type 5 with a 4 wing: Type Five individuals are cerebral, intelligent, and complex. Type Five is often called the Investigator type, because they are constantly trying to learn more about the world. To a Five, knowledge is power, and knowing more about the world around them makes the world a safer place. It’s common for a Five to withdraw into their own thoughts and ruminate on intricate ideas and concepts. Type Fives, when they are in a growth state, become self-confident and authoritative like a Type Eight. When they are stressed, Type Fives become scattered like an unhealthy Type Seven. You are a Type Five with a Four wing, which means that the cerebral nature of Type Five combines with the creative nature of a Type Four. For this reason, you are likely to challenge established ideas with new and fresh concepts.
Your third type (the least-used of the three) is Type 9 with a 8 wing: Nines are receptive, easygoing, and loveable. Out of all the types in the Enneagram, they have a special ability to get along with others. For this reason, they’re often skilled mediators, resolving conflicts both within themselves and among others. Nines value peace, especially inner peace, very highly. When in a state of growth, Nines become energetic and driven like Type Threes. When stressed, Nines become anxious like an unhealthy Type Six. You are a Type Nine with an Eight wing, which means that the harmonious traits of the Nine merge with the aggressive traits of the Eight. Inner peace is your goal, but if something is challenging that peace, your Eight wing means that you’ll stand up and deal with the situation assertively and decisively.
Some words that describe you: relaxed, peaceful, harmonious, ambitious, driven, adaptable, energetic, intelligent, cerebral, questioning.
I haven’t complained about the East Coast in a while so….to begin with: house/apartment hunting is THAT much harder because everything is so freaking old. Like I’ve NEVER had allergies before coming over here but there’s so much dust and mold in the buildings I’ve legit cried/drowned in my own mucosal secretions on several apt showings. Adding to the oldness, I’ve never had to think about mice (yes they indeed do not exist on the West Coast :3333 jk I’ve just never seen one in a house ever) or cockroaches before and now it’s like every where I look at I have to be hypervigilant. Cockroaches meh but mice??? Oh hale no
What’s with the weather? How can it be raining yet hot at the same time? I think I bitched about this last summer already but it’s seriously so uncomfortably muggy. And then you hear a thunderclap and less than 10 seconds later it’s pouring down rain. grrr
You know what else I don’t appreciate? Those Dolan comics. So unfunny.
At least the Celtics won tonight! Also the Sixers. Congrats too I guess lol I’m such a bad Philadelphian.
I guess I should see The Avengers at some point, huh….
Love frappuccino happy hour. idec about the added calories tbh
Signs of burn out. For legit the first time in the 18 years I’ve been in school thus far, I’m starting to feel it.
On a different note…..wow, god, MCA. No one raps like you guys anymore and now no one ever will. Too young. RIP.
