so the guy i'm subletting from has this bottle of honey and bourbon and it always looks so tempting when i'm starting to do my homework
i think i accidentally killed all my flatmates because no one else is here. the house is hollow and empty and i own it. i could technically sub-sub-let it and no one would know. that's kind of hilarious.
yesterday i went to the pool for the first time in what? five years? then i saw the fireworks at penn's landing. i hope i will always be amazed by fireworks. my friend says that they are amazing because they are rare and i forget what they're like every year so i guess i need to forget harder.
well my therapy chronicles came to an abrupt end when something happened to my therapist and he had to cancel. i think i killed him too.
i have a ukulele now. i know four chords. yes, those four chords.
also volunteering in hospitals entails seeing many people in partial undress. i was not aware of this. they should have put it as a warning. i work in the maternity ward and last friday i walked in on not one, not two, but three topless women. i do knock, okay. please warn me. one of them had the biggest boobs i have ever seen in my life ever including porn. it was actually kind of amazing. but still. and so. etc. and the other had a weird breast milk contraption attached to her. and that was strange. did you know that men can breastfeed? i have also seen a lot of bare a**. i think if criminals had to wear hospital gowns in prisons, it would be considered a kind of torture...
i brought out a woman. she was going home with her husband. her thighs were all bone and she had a mottled red purple mark up one arm. and i said, "are you going to see the fireworks at penn's landing?" cuz i am so good at small talk and she said, "no, but i saw the ones from the museum. from my hospital window."
and i said, "hey, so i guess it's not too bad being here?"
and she said, "but i like to hear the boom."
and for some reason i thought that was really poignant. maybe it was just the expression on her face. other than the maternity ward, the hospital is full of unhappy people. and it smells bad and the nurses will let your call bell ring for ages without giving a ******** and the food is pretty awful.
i am ready for my career in medicine.
