Anonymous asked: What are your top 5 favorite pre-med/medicine-related blogs you follow?


Oh man. I love this question, but it’s gonna be SUPER hard. Okay. These are in no particular order.

  • viniology - Okay, I have to put my future husband first. Vinny was one of the very first medblr blogs that I followed and VERY quickly became my tumblr crush. Now we’re planning our wedding.
  • ladykaymd - I think we can all agree that Kay is awesome. Her advice is always great, she’s a gifted writer, and she’s super sassy. Plus she loves Doctor Who.
  • wayfaringmd - another one of the very first medblrs that I found. Great stories, great advice, great sense of humor.
  • pre-med-timelord - look at that URL. What whovian could ignore that URL!? I’ve been reflagging a lot from this person lately. Their content is spot on. 
  • scarlet-karma - I reblog a decent amount from this blog too! AND they almost always like or reblog my posts. I see you. You are one of those people that I wave at but don’t talk to on my dash.

Honorable Mentions

  • eclipperton - This guy rocks. He replies to my posts and is funny and I am just fond of him.
  • pleasedotheneedful - Another guy that rocks. I like his no-nonsense attitude. 

(lol all of these people are gonna see this and be like “wtf she doesn’t follow me” but I promise I do it’s just that this is a side blog so it doesn’t show up)


Thanks MM. I think I lost you in the name change, but I’ve corrected that.

medicalmysterytour asked: Did you apply to miller at miami? I think i saw a username the same as your blog title on the SDN thread for the school, just curious!

I knew it wasn’t long before the evil SDN hive-mind claimed my identity as its own!


I hate to admit that I did have an SDN account for awhile as a pre-med, but my username was not eclipperton. And I won’t say whether or not I applied to Miami…

Ohhh you meant “nobody better call me Doogie Houser.” Still no. And that is actually inspired by a different novel, non-fiction this time. In Sheri Fink’s 5 Days at Memorial, two investigators refer to one of the doctors at the flooded hospital as Doogie Houser because he’s young looking. That would piss me off.
