I am an orthopedic surgeon. I put people back together when they are broken... Get them running, throwing or doing whatever they want again. It is a very important part of my life and it is an honor to play that role in a patient's life. It is obviously a demanding job and there were certainly many sacrifices that I made along the way. But now I'm at a point where life is not as chaotic as it once was. I'm looking for someone to share and make a story with.
I love way more than I hate. Here are the partial lists that describe me: (this is a living list that evolves over time...)
THINGS I LOVE: calvin and hobbes (yup, thats right. i put it first), medical school, sportcenter, thursday nights, advertisements for alcoholic beverages, steak, vegas baby, sunday morning with nothing to do, the glenohumeral, radiocapitellar, and ulnohumeral joints, mischief, the unexpected realization that something you're about to do is going to be really fun, big waves, thursday nights, OJ, big dogs, medium sized dogs, massages, kinetic bodies, washingtonpost.com, a banging post-op xray, a smile from across the room, the words "not possible," baths, my 97 pathfinder (pour out some liquor), my top rated playlist, apres-ski, the dougie, breakfast, wheat thins, being right, winter: open car windows full heater, nyc, sleep, banksy art, beats, thanksgiving, A.F.T. reductions, tosh.0, thanksgiving, handing off the pager, stopping for sunset, stopping for the sunrise too, porsche, competition, fish tanks, awkward silences, bad language, sharks, joe gibbs, lazy sundays, thunderstorms, pigtails, a round table with the boys two drinks into the night, BET, USA, cell phones, **raspberries**, DC, having my inadequacies exposed, 9pm, excess, 2am stunts, free speech, the concept of gun racks, remembering my dreams, taking the red pill, the view from the top of the mountain, 90,000 people cheering for the same thing, a phone call from a long lost friend, jon stewart, milk and oreos, warm sand between the toes, the sound your club makes when you hit a nice drive, the scalpel, holding an edge across the mountain, london, laughing, getting better, free speech, hot tubs in the snow, my kindle, take-off and landing, having time to get lost, having to concede a point in a discussion (usually means i just learned something), being on the green in regulation, putting my feet up, not getting caught, scars, 6th gear, the first kiss, jokes, mom and dad, teaching, clearly no one actually reads this far, reasonable doubt (the album), things that are unnecessary, *that* first day of summer, and especially the skirts it brings out, defenestration (look it up if you don't know it!), the number 2 (to make it right), dragons.
THINGS I HATE: car commericials (save joe isuzu), lists (get it??), ignorance, or even worse, obstinance in the face of overwhelming evidence (please see: creationism), boredom, medical school, one ski still at the top of the mountain, elevators (becasue they induce laziness), inexcusably bad grammar, venous bleeding, lying, 4:30am unless it comes after 2am, finding the matching sock, documentation, political finance, forgetting your work ID, studying for more than 4 hours at a time, pop-up ads, the principle of treadmills, traffic (grrrr), getting sick, having to sleep, censorship, yappy dogs, limitations, deadlines, the pager, people who wear hats in church or shoes in a mosque, alarm clocks, platiunum fronts (thats a lie, i actually love), paperwork, having a contact come out, dead tree branches through my leg and 6 months of not walking, rounding, toothpick skinny girls, people who write "haha" at their own joke or ever use the the word "thanx"
