LIFE LATELY: This past week was a pretty long week. In addition to a bunch of work and things on my plate, I also had lots on my mind. I tend to dwell on things internally and basically drive myself crazy over situations that are over and done with. However this week I’ve been really conscious of my thoughts and what I allowed my brain to dwell on. Instead of ruminating over people or situations, I decided to pray for the situation/ the person instead. Nothing too long or crazy… just a quick 1-2 lines asking for peace for a situation or just something… View Post

  So if you guys read regularly you would have seen my post on how I organize myself in medical school and in that post you would’ve seen a sneak peek at this week’s planner layout. For those of you who looked closely (or were being extra nosey) you would’ve noticed that I was supposed to have a post up on how to get into medical school with a low GPA and MCAT. If this is something you need help with, before you do anything else, please read this interview by Shan from Chronicles of A Rising Doctor. Honestly, when I read this, I was… View Post

  I have been searching EVERYWHERE for a quality bag to hold my items in for my clinical rotations. I used to have the Longchamp Le Pliage tote in deep red.

As you… View Post

LIFE LATELY: Sooo obviously I’m a day late with this. I was going to stay up last night to get this post out but I was exhausted and decided that I was gonna prioritize sleep & I don’t regret that decision one bit. Anyways, the reason I’m so tired is because this past week was so fun! One of my dearest friends from college, Alex, was in town for a conference and she stayed with me for the week. Her weekdays were pretty jam packed with conference events so we didn’t get to really frolic and play until this weekend. Overall, this week was a… View Post

Blogging has been so rewarding for me, especially in the past couple of months. I think what I enjoy the most are the conversations that happen behind the scenes. There are a few of you who have become like virtual friends and a bunch more who I have engaged with via emails and DMs. While I’ve always received questions in my inbox, I’m noticing that the number is steadily increasing, and I’m starting to get the same questions asked over and over again. Because of this, I decided that I’m going to start creating posts for some of my frequently asked questions. This way I… View Post
