the weight of all things

"No matter where we are — far away in the mountains or downstairs in the cafeteria, swimming in the ocean or hiding in an automobile — I enjoy being together with you, and I miss you when we are not."

"I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing."

- Neil GaimanThe Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones (via feellng)

"No one had ever asked. And if they had. If they’d asked him how it felt. He’d say It’s like when you’re climbing a tree and the branch breaks off. You’re still holding on to the branch but you’re falling through"

if there is one thing med school has really taught me to appreciate it is the post-ten-hours-of-holding-it-in pee/poo.

wish i had done bladder control exercises in high school or something man

Things not usually spoken of…but very seriously true.

Especially if the hospital bathrooms are a bit manky.

Hence the importance of finding your secret bathroom. It’s like the room of requirement, guys. It’s been there all along in a fairly obvious place but no one has been using it and it’s wonderful. 

Haha, I can totally vouch for this. Each nurse has their own secret bathroom, which we all call “the office.” When it’s time, you simply tell your fellow nurse that you’re heading to the office, and not a word is spoken.
