No, I don't mind not getting a holiday

A little background of what I do for a living...

I am a Radiation Oncology Medical Physicist and as a short description of what I do, the machine we use in my center is called a linear accelerator which emit electronically generated radiation. As a physicist, I create treatment plans for cancer patients based on the prescription and constraints given by the Radiation Oncologist.

So anyway, I was hanging out and trying to blow off some steam with my coworkers at the reception area when a patient who has just finished their treatment for the day looked at me. She smiled with worry in her eyes and asked if I was the physicist. I told her I was. The next thing she told me brought me to tears.

Hello World

This is the first of many... I hope. This will be a personal blog wherein I share my thoughts and experiences as a functioning adult in the real world.
