White Horse

This is probably the first Taylor Swift song I heard on Grey’s Anatomy. Love the tune, background guitar arrangements as well as her voice 😉

Say you’re sorry, that face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
As I paced back and forth all this time
Cause I honestly believed in you

Holding on, the days dragged on
Stupid girl, I should have known
I should have known

I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairy tale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it’s too late for you and your white horse,
To come around

Baby I was naive, got lost in your eyes
Never really had a chance
My mistake, I didnt know to be in love
You had to fight to have the upper hand

I had so many dreams about you and me
Happy endings, now I know

I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairy tale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it’s too late for you and your white horse,
To come around

And there you are on your knees
Begging for forgiveness, begging for me
Just like I alwyas wanted but I’m so sorry

Cause, I’m not your princess, this ain’t a fairytale
I’m gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rearview mirror disappearing now

And it’s too late for you and your white horse
Now it’s too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now

Oh, whoa whoa whoa
Try and catch me now
Oh it’s too late to catch me now

~ White Horse, by Taylor Swift

Oxymoron

An oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines normally contradictory terms.

Here are a few examples..

Bittersweet

Pretty Ugly

Original Copy

Virtual Reality

Living Dead

Open Secret

Organized Mess

Controlled Chaos

Deafening Silence

Quiet Riot

Was watching a movie with my sis when one of the characters mentioned the word “oxymoron”. Decided to check out what it really meant since I though it was a type of moron. Something like super moron, uber moron or ultra moron. Ok, that was lame. Hah.

Here’s some pictures to illustrate the madness of my job…

Snippet 1

One day during one of my ICU calls, I went to the Redzone (Accident & Emergency Department) to see a head injury patient which was referred to me. It was written that he also had a clavicle fracture. When I checked out his Chest X-ray, I saw the darnest thing…

Obviously the fella couldn’t have swallowed the laryngoscope. Just wondering whether it was left above or below the patient when the X-ray was taken and how did the radiographer miss it when setting the cassette to shoot the film??

Snippet 2

This sort of things only happens when I am on call. Those in blue are the elective cases, and those in red are the emergencies. Just looking at the board is enough to make me feel tired…

Snippet 3

During on calls, whenever there’s a short break, i.e. the few minutes in between cases while waiting for the patient to arrive, one would usually grab the opportunity to lie down on the on-call room bed to catch a quick nap if possible. However, to my horror, this is what I saw stuck to the bed frame…

So I had to contend with resting on the chair…Sigh!

Paranoia

We’re all susceptible to it, the dread and anxiety of not knowing what’s coming. It’s pointless in the end, because all the worrying and the making of plans for things that could or could not happen, it only makes things worse. So walk your dog or take a nap. Just whatever you do, stop worrying. Because the only cure for paranoia is to be here, just as you are.

Grief

According to Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, when we’re dying or have suffered a catastrophic loss, we all move through five distinct stages of grief. We go into denial because the loss is so unthinkable we can’t imagine it’s true. We become angry with everyone, angry with survivors, angry with ourselves. Then we bargain. We beg. We plead. We offer everything we have, we offer our souls in exchange for just one more day. When the bargaining has failed and the anger is too hard to maintain, we fall into depression, despair, until finally we have to accept that we’ve done everything we can. We let go. We let go and move into acceptance.

~ Meredith, S06E01- Good Mourning

The irony…

“We crave what we can’t attain, but we disrespect what we can’t escape…”

Hmmm…why are human beings so contradictory?

Half empty

Don’t allow yourself to be consumed by life’s problems; be consumed with life’s joys.

I wish it was that easy. Perhaps I’m just a born pessimist. Or maybe it’s just a passing phase. It sucks, but for me right now, the cup just seems half empty on most days. It’s not that I don’t observe shittier things in life on a daily basis that outweighs all the crap in my life. Nevertheless, the cup still feels half empty.

I’m now finally taking some time off from work, life and all the crap in my life (hopefully). I hope that at the end of it, I will be less burnt out and perhaps the cup will be half full when I return…
