About This Blog and Me

The morning after my last day of training to be a pediatrician found me on the other side of the world smack dab in the middle of a tiny island in the Pacific – Saipan. This is a blog about my life now.

For some basics about Saipan see this post and the next four that follow. If you want to know about how Saipan and the Northern Marianas Islands is associated with the United States, visit this page.

Update: As of June 2013, I moved away from Saipan to do some extra medical training in San Francisco and then I returned in August 2014. This blog will continue to follow my journey.

     Why “gratitudeactually”? I watched the movie “Love Actually” and the movie starts out with the line: Love Actually ..(pause).. is all around.

There are a lot of things that are all around that we don’t see on a daily basis. Sometimes it takes a long wait at an airport waiting area watching joyful, tearful, love-filled reunions to remember that love actually is all around. I think for me it might take this blog to remember that gratitude actually is something I believe in on a daily basis.
