A bit about me

Just so you know with whom you are dealing with, I will tell you a few things about me. This way, you will feel like you have some idea of what to expect on this blog. Whether this "feeling" is in any way "justified," well, you'll just have to see for yourself.

Right now, I'm in my first year of law school at the University of Michigan. I came here after earning an MD from the University of Colorado School of Medicine, rather than immediately signing up for a residency in emergency medicine. I might do a residency yet--it all depends on how clinical training will fit in with my long-range life goals, which remain hazy around the edges. For the moment I'm focusing on my classes, this blog, and the upcoming releases of The Two Towers Extended Edition DVD and the Return of the King in theaters (not necessarily in that order).

My interests are many. Rather than try to list them here, I invite you to read this blog in a regular and repetitive fashion, and learn something from the entries that you find. I will try to spice them up with dorky references to Harry Potter, Buffy, and the Silmarillion. Any critique of medical, legal, or political practices is enhanced with juicy allusions to the high points of our pop culture.
