This year, my school started a Medical Humanities Journal Club. I remember when I was interviewing at another school that had the humanities as part of their curriculum and really like that. I suppose you can call me “artistic.” I’ve played the violin for 14 years and love the arts. I also enjoy writing – it is an outlet for me (and I express myself better on paper than I do in person most of the time). This is part of the reason why I started this blog.
Anyway, the journal club is taking submissions and I’ve decided to try to write something. I take a while to really crank out something good and with school I find it very difficult to get the chunk of time need to be inspired and write. I did, however write a poem during one of my classes (in which I was not paying attention).
There was also a writing workshop I went to today where I was able to write two more poems (one of which I will submit) and play around with some other ideas.
How do you express yourselves? And if you have anything you’ve written, drawn, taking pictures of, I’d love to see it!
