“He knew that I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else. He knew that it is, by love’s definition, impossible to love two people.”—Everything is Illuminated
i swear leo, every single film you make me feel for you right from the beginning, and every single film you make my heart break for you at the end. in your latest two films you’ve added the ability to made me leave questioning reality- only increasing how heartbroken for you i am at the end of the film….i cant TAKE THIS kind of torture any more.

I crave two hours in the rink to myself, just two hours; time enough to feel myself fade away into my sport, my art. I want to feel my body and my soul work as one- without the self destructive nagging of my conscience. I crave two hours of uninterrupted peace, two hours of self worth, two hours to both lose myself and find myself. I crave two hours of perfection.
i had the rare pleasure of working with a physician who actually supported my hopes of bridging the gap between the medical model and the public health model. when i told him that i was only entertaining the possibility of a medical degree over a PhD he encouraged me to carry on with my MPH and to follow up with an MD to have the best possible chance of accomplishing my goals. he pestered me about it everyday, asking like clockwork each morning with his starbucks coffee in hand if i had made a decision yet. he actually discussed some of my passions with me, and told me the ways I could apply them in endocrinology clinical practice. we discussed research and the benefit of a medical approach in terms of acquiring the funding and access we seek for all studies. and at the end of the week he asked for my email and gave me his phone number and told me to contact him about anything, even if i ever wanted a job in his new practice.
it was so refreshing to find a physician who has not been worn down by the red tape of practicing medicine, who did not find himself superior because he is experienced in the field and i am not, and who thoroughly enjoyed the work he does to the point he encourages others to pursue the field.
it was just enough to put medicine back in the top 3 of my post MPH plans, and for that i am so thankful.
