‎"When one is thirsty one quenches one's thirst by drinking, not by reading books which treat of this condition." Jean Pierre de Caussade

I am an avid reader, especially of non-fiction, but I must admit that I often feel so frustrated with those, including myself, who are reading for answers... yet seem afraid to put forth the knowledge they acquire that would help resolve the problem. Why do we look for answers but stop there? Why do we not then solve the problem?

Furthermore, why would we even be looking for answers that we already have? If you know that you are thirsty, drink some water. If you know that you need five minutes of complete silence before you start your day turn off  your phone when you wake up.

Yet, here I am reading my 76th book on gratitude...

Tomorrow I'm moving into my first apartment.. my first home away from my parents. And right now, I have no plan for my future. I know this is supposed to be stressful, but I'm really excited about heading into the unknown! As Douglas Adams wrote, "Whatever happens, happens."

Hey all,

I just put together a quick poll for Google+ users and I'd appreciate you taking a moment to answer the questions.

I'll publish the results after a day or so.

Please reshare so we can get as many responses as possible.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, the article only briefly mentions the other half of the problem. Yes, physicians are sometimes too quick to push treatment before they know what's going on, but this process is facilitated by the demand that patients often put on the doctor to do something immediately. Sure, it can be scary knowing something is wrong, but having no idea what it could be. But if both patients and doctors take a deep breath before diving in to diagnosis, maybe they will hear what the body has to say.
So much of medicine is about "doing something," but in some cases doing nothing may be the best course of action.

Yes! That's what I spent my MHS time studying-- the dr/pt relationship is the most important part of medicine. I really believe if that relationship is nurtured and maintained, the cost of healthcare would drop dramatically.... and other problems would disappear.

Only slightly related: are you enjoying med school?

Such a sweet idea. It seems like I've heard of others doing this, maybe with pictures or something. My dad doesn't keep friends long enough (haha!), but maybe I can do this for my mom one day...

So I tried a cooking experiment today. My Roomie and I are sort of obsessed with Pillsbury Savoring "Spinach Things," as they are affectionately known. But everyone knows everything tastes better when it's home made. Right? So I found a pretty close recipe (attached), or so I thought. But something is wrong with it. The mixture itself was really good. I think I just didn't like the bread. It sort of seemed doughy in the middle (but if I had cooked it longer, it would have burned!) and Roomie said the bread sort of made it "bland." I'm gonna keep trying (mainly because I bought so much spinach), and next time, I'll try taking pictures :)
Baking is a wonderful thing. I just love to do it. You get all the wonderful smells that spread throughout the house while something is baking. None of that fried smells you get from frying, say......

Why does Wiki not allow photo galleries? I read the policy, but I still feel pretty unsatisfied. I usually go to Google Images after reading a wiki article, so it seems like we should be able to combine two steps here.
With that being said, however, there is an option to put pics at "the commons," and there is a link to that at the bottom of the page, when applicable. So photo junkies, breathe easy.
