balance is the key to life

August 15, 2010

Technically I’ve been in medical school for three weeks now. The first week started on July 26th was orientation. The week after that we spent a week shadowing physicians in the hospital. And this past week was our first actual week of class. This week was still pretty stress-free because it was an introduction to health and disease and what it means to be a physician.

For the past three weeks we have been constantly reminded of how important it is as medical students and future physicians to have balance in our lives. Basically, the faculty have been telling us to study A LOT, but don’t forget the fun stuff. Don’t forget to spend time with friends and family, exercise, and partake in the activities that you enjoy the most. Our last lecture on Friday once again emphasized balance and we were left with this fantastic image at the end of class:

My mom is great and she sent me a few little things I left at home in Dallas when I moved to Atlanta. But she also added a little something special in the box. I got this adorable David & Goliath tee. It’s a jersey tee and it is wonderfully comfortable. I had a little difficulty finding a place to buy it online, but here is a picture of the t-shirt:

Currently, David & Goliath does not have elephant tees on their website, but this a super cute past design:

Elephants Are People Too Tee, David & Goliath

I love that the shirt says “Elephants are people too”. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell everyone :)

Lastly, I was able to find this quite entertaining sticker on the website. It’s absolutely perfect and costs only $1.50.

Goodbye Kitty Elephant Sticker, $1.50, David & Goliath

Moral of the story: David & Goliath has some extra cute elephant items for purchase. Their stock changes a lot so be sure to check the website often for new elephant designs so you don’t miss anything! And even if you don’t find any elephant gear, David & Goliath has tons of delightful tees and other stuff for sale.
