Merry Christmas!!

Hello again and a very happy holidays to you, whatever you happen to celebrate!

With Christmas comes another set of covers by yours truly (not quite the originals but, hey, girl’s gotta have dreams), this year the set’s called Gyroscope.  What with all the twists and turns in 3rd year, it’s been difficult to keep balanced.

I’ve got them all here for your viewing pleasure – enjoy!

What I’m listening to

So here’s a smashing idea.

Instead of me racking my brain, trying to mould some beautiful analogy of the medical school experience out of the limited wordsmith-skillz I possess, why don’t we just chat?

Just us girls.

(And dudes.)

After all, most days of the week I’m at least partly reliant on the sound pumping through my ear buds to help lift my spirits or calm my scattered thoughts.  Music has become rather important in my day-to-day functioning, especially when I just need to feel something more intense than what my sleep-deprived brain is otherwise capable of.

So what the hell.  Let’s have a look at my (moderately contemptible) top 10 songs to fight burnout:

NEW SONG! Gen Surg Can’t Hold Us

Yo yo yo.

(Yeah, apparently I’m a rapper or something.  That’s an appropriate greeting, ja?)

So we were asked to do an assignment for general surgery – could be anything from a reflection on our experiences to an approach to acute abdominal pain to a guide to two-handed suture ties.

Of course, I did none of those.

I made a music video.  A parody of Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us” (because his music rocks everything).  And after about 20 hours’ worth of work, here is the result.  Enjoy!

New Christmas album up on YouTube!

Hey y’all.  So the Christmas holidays are not yet completed, so my get-up-and-go-write-a-blog-entry has not yet returned.  Instead, imma link you all to my new album (I use that term in the loosiest way possible).  Plus it’s a great excuse to plug art in medicine – just because I’m going to be a doctor someday doesn’t mean I have to give up music and being a diva.

I’m only putting up 3 of the 6 tracks this year because A) I’m lazy, B) it takes forever to upload in 1080p, and C) they’re more depressing than the 3 I uploaded.  So TADA:

Carol of the Bells:  This one goes out to my girls, yo.  More specifically, the 3 wonderful ladies who are largely responsible for the overwhelming success of the Winter Concert this year.

Lucky:  After years and years of begging, pleading, and otherwise embarassing myself, my little bro finally agreed to sing a duet with me.  Jason Mraz?  Colbie Callait?  Eat your heart out.

Over the Rainbow:  I’ve done this one a couple of times, most recently at World AIDS Day, but I figured I should record it properly this year with my super lame microphone.

Thanks for listening!

New Cover – “I See the Light” from Tangled

Quick blurb – over Christmas break, I recorded another cover disc, including this one from Tangled.  To be clear, YES, I did it because I saw it a trizillion times (oh yeah, beat that, Mr. Gazillion), and YES I’m stoked it got an Oscar nod.  Even if it did lose to Randy Newman.  Like always.

Anyway, enjoy!  If you are liking, check out my channel:
