The reinvention of the HMP3 guru

I have been thinking for some time that I would like to continue writing - however everytime I sit down and put my fingers on the keyboard nothing comes. This is baffling to me because of the sheer volume of thoughts that run through my head every day - especially regarding the choice of what I want to do with the rest of my life and of course the general mental processing of the things I see and do every day as a 3rd year medical student.

So why is it that I have such trouble communicating lately? After giving it some thought, I think that perhaps it is time for a change (no political pun intended) in the way I communicate and perhaps even to whom I'm communicating. I have always told people that I feel like I morph into a new person every three years or so. Of course this is probably true - we all grow and change as we interact, sometimes not so harmoniously, with our environment. I am a different person than I was when I wrote the bulk of these entries. You are a different person than you were when you first read them.

The best way that I can serve others who may want to continue, or begin, reading this blog, is to be myself. And to be myself in an open forum, to be able to send my often tortured thoughts out into the oblivion of the internet, is probably the best favor I could do for myself as well.

Please don't get me wrong here, when I say tortured I don't necessarily mean that in a bad way. But I do have some complicated thoughts about complicated matters as we all do.

So here is my plan. I am going to rename and relaunch this blog as soon as I can. I will archive all of the old posts so that they will still be available. Then I am going to write again, because I have something to say. Actually, a lot of somethings. Until then - enjoy the new year - can you believe it's 2009 already?

Meanwhile, here are a couple of things to think about:

Best news - I finally kicked the habit on October 20th, 2008

Good news - the view from my cruise ship stateroom on Christmas day

Good news - i am getting married this year to the amazing person next to me in this pic

Bad news - What the f*** is wrong with this picture?
