28 more hours and the lies women tell

One more day on Surgery -- I am so excited. For most people it's two more days, but since i am on call tomorrow, i am post call Wednesday and i get to leave after grand rounds which ends at 8am. I am SO happy to be done with this rotation. Bad enough as the service i am on this month is, it was made worse by my partner. E remain small make i hate that boy and there have been moments when i have actually hated him. I have no desire to have certain kinds of interactions with people.

A lot of people are so FAKE. They dislike/don't care for each other but you can hardly tell because they have mastered the art of smiling in your face and talking shit behind your back. I get an F in that regard. I am working on it but i don't know if i want to be like that, ever. It disgusts me. Such a malignant environment. 28hrs then you can stick a fork in it cos i'm done.

Switching gears to happy things. My sister just got promoted and she is now a senior chief petty officer (E8) in the navy. I told her i'm going to brag about her. Here i am bragging. I am very proud of her and she is one of my coolest sisters. I have shared her picture on this blog before when i asked you guys to guess her age. The next and highest rank (pay grade) is an E9. They already call her Chief, and now she will be called Senior Chief. I guess i should have joined the military, somebody needs to be calling me Chief.

Little side story. I have one brother and he is the last born, he also has a twin sister and let's just say i have  plenty sisters :). When my mother was giving birth to girls, one of my paternal uncles said that she was just giving birth to prostitutes. I am very proud of my mother that none of her girls turned out to be prostitutes and she managed to raise a son who is not spoiled rotten because he is the only boy. She did good.

I am going HOME on Friday. Something to look forward to. I's happy. Years ago if i said home, i would be referring to Nigeria. Not anymore. It was such a silent transition. There are mornings when i am marching (literally,cos it's never a leisurely stroll when you are trying not to be late) to the hospital, there's this cool early morning breeze that takes me back to Nigeria. It's always mixed with a certain nostalgia and sadness. It will be 11yrs this year. Time flies.

Was i the only one who saw that Rick Ross landed in the "beautiful country of Africa"? An involuntary gasp escaped me when i saw that. This is 2013! Whew lord! *Taking deep breaths and raising fist to heaven in supplication*

I'm too hungry to continue and blogging takes too much of my precious timeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

You guys need to check this guy out. He is FUNNY. I am a fan! I think he is giving foxy P a run for his money. lol. But they are a different kind of funny. I really think this guy is talented and i had a good time watching his videos yesterday since i couldn't study.


  1. If you joined the military (navy) as a doctor, you'd be a commissioned officer, starting at Ensign (but most probably lieutenant, since you've been through a boatload of school). :D
