    I was thinking he was trying to play GTA in real life. Except after the wasted screen it's under the blade of a medical examiner then 6 feet under. No reset button in real life bruddah.

    I guess he never heard the adage, better to be judged by twelve, than to be carried by six.

    Chainsmokers was sick.

    The Lobby Bar @ The Modern is sick.
    So is having a table @ Addiction. Bonus points when you know the off-duty HPD checking IDs to get in (I doubt he remembered who I was though)

    Watching the Poseidon Adventure. It is really difficult to see Leslie Nielsen in a serious role after his rebirth as a comedy actor.

    OMG what a fukn end/beginning of the year!

    - Mom's car get flooded from last week's big rain. Apparently, the sunroof drain was plugged causing gallons of water to seep into the car. Needs new fuse box, carpet...
    - Water leak from upstairs on the 28th. Condo finally finds out the cause today.
    - I had work scheduled at my condo to repair water damage from a Halloween leak. Bathroom was gutted the other day. They tell me there's a leak in the bathroom wall. Yup, that's from the upstairs leak.
    - Condo has another company come in for the remediation work. They have to rip apart my kitchen, and now, the rest of the bathroom.
    - New tenant supposed to move in on the 15th. Don't think that is gonna happen.

    2 year old ACDelco OEM water pump is shitting the bed suddenly with a noticeable squealing noise. The original pump lasted 14 years so I'm a bit mad of having to replace the part soon. At least it's a GM LS engine and not some turd timing belt driven water pump.

    Anyone know CPAs that know how to deal with cryptocurrency related capital gains? Financial advisors that can help me plan out and secure my future?
    What about getting my feet wet in owning real estate for them steady returns?

    If cryptocurrency blows the lid off and goes full mainstream in 2018 like I expect it to, I'm strongly considering graduating from med school and not doing a residency.

    So are you going into the medical field to legit "help" people or for the potential of making a good chunk of money?

    If it's just for the money then I can see the thought of a "gamble" to make a lot of money....hmmmm

    I like the convenience store "crappacino" for some reason. Went to the Hele store by me and the machine was spewing out the powder all over the place. Told one of the workers about it and they said the spout came of, and refilled the container. There was a lot of the powder on top of a ledge of the machine and she wipes it into the tub. Didn't drink that one. lol

    (In short) Legitimately I got into medicine because it's the intersection of my interests, desires, and ambition. I couldn't see any other career satisfying me. "Pay it forward"
    Money and prestige is a motivating factor for medicine. It would be ignorant to claim it isn't. There's a reason why most US MD applicants say they want to be a primary care doctor but 4 years later they go on to match into specialties and leave the primary care roles for foreign graduates.

    Being at home over Christmas break made me realize that I'm doing it for my parents. They busted their asses to give me the world. I want the money to give THEM the world in return, sooner rather than later.

    Was looking at potential investment properties back in HNL. I don't think the Kakaako condos would be very good or profitable... too expensive, oversaturated market, tough to find someone to occupy year-round.
