Case in point: I just spilled nutritional yeast on my keyboard.

This, obviously, necessitates having nutritional yeast on hand to spill. If you’re raising an eyebrow over the word, I don’t blame you—it’s legitimately weird. It’s also tasty and full of nutrients like B12 and protein. A few years ago, I’d never even heard of the stuff, but now I use it all the time. It’s especially good sprinkled on soup. IMG_1124

(And yes, I put hummus on bagels.)

I also have a way of spilling turmeric on people’s counters. My own kitchen counter is an orange mess unto itself.

Another thing I never thought I’d say: “Sure, I’ll bring a massaged kale salad for Christmas.”

Oh, and I’ve been eating a lot of tilapia lately. Oh, hospital cafeteria food. Actually, I shouldn’t complain—one can do worse than fish and veggies for lunch. I just think “tilapia” is a funny word.

Can you tell it’s been an exhausting week? That said, I’m loving staff relief. I’m almost sad that this is pretty much my last clinical rotation. For now, I’m just happy to go with the flow, keep doing what I’m doing, and feeling the feelings. I’m also learning a lot and also getting a sense of how far I’ve come since I started this internship. Yesterday, for example, I had to write a tube feed order, and it was just like, “Meh, tube feed—no big deal.” It seems like yesterday I was dreading the first time I’d ever have to calculate one!

What are some things you never thought you’d say?
