This past month has been full of events that, in isolation, were unconcerning. But in combination with each other, they have raised the titular query of this list. YOU TELL ME.
  1. I'm on a surgical rotation -- fish out of water!
    7b9ae4bf 2963 4bf0 983b d1e85509ea62
    This past month, I've been acting as the pediatric consultant to the general surgery team (you know, making sure they don't give babies doses of morphine meant for adults). I'm the only non-surgeon on the team and by definition out of my element.
  2. There is a crazy handsome visiting medical student from England on my team.
    7e22cc7e b255 41c7 a878 908afbc73dd0
    He says things like "tip top" and "jolly," has a thick accent, and, often, a man bun. And his name is Angus. (And oh man please don't judge me too hard for my creeper pictures, but @sam needed to see how good looking he is)
  3. Angus' eventual career plan is to do Doctors Without Borders.
    E958bbd5 5052 4474 96b0 92def41db771
    He is the only person I know who has ever said this outside a rom-com (in fact, @jmacvt21's list about rom-com heroine jobs is what inspired me to make this list) . He is leaving to go to Mozambique, a comically far away place that is challenging to get to.
  4. I need a date to an upcoming wedding.
    Dfb49fa1 0517 44c7 90a5 ba1175db53c2
    If ONLY Angus could be convinced to stay.
  5. I straight up walked in on colleagues talking about me (not nicely).

    See point about fish out of water above. #hijinx!
  6. There was a very dramatic incident at work involving an evaluation that was supposed to be anonymous and most definitely was not.

    Within 10 minutes of submitting, I was called into the program director's office. #hijinx!
  7. An engagement announcement made me the only ex of my major ex-boyfriend's to not be married or on the way there.
    Cb641fa7 1ffb 45ea 9787 603ae1926971
    Bonus: this was ALSO a pregnancy announcement.
  8. I got asked to be in ANOTHER wedding.
    28f615b5 d222 4591 bad1 2a7c4792ea3b
    I mean, it's an honor and I'm happy to do it, but you know.
  9. Pretty much every one of my friends is involved in some kind of life-altering relationship evolution with their significant other.
    618684bb bf29 40c0 98b3 0a666c468075
    An affair, a divorce, an engagement, a baby, moving in together, marriage, best friends with their ex, resisting a serious relationship. The whole gamut.
  10. I gave my ex advice on his new girlfriend, for whom he is doing exactly what he wouldn't do for me, which was the reason we broke up.
    C11c1da4 e2a9 4d0f 9548 029e1988380c
    Because before we dated, we were best friends -- a tale that is a rom-com in itself (bonus points if you pick up on the double parallel of the attached photo).
  11. It was my birthday.
    3b096346 ab32 463e aca7 514ba4f3455b
    Everyone knows important things happen on your birthday.
  12. I keep waking up and it's the same damn day all over again.
    89b722b4 31cb 454d bf6d 7a3750854f23
    At least it feels that way.
  13. Someone made a bet to sleep with me.
    1b26a115 2efd 4ab0 9e45 9f3003cf5435
    Jkjkjkjk I should be so lucky.
