Christel Wekon-Kemeni, (1/8) M.D.

  Aye….guess what?   I JUST SPRINTED THRU THE FINISH LINE!!! MY FIRST SEMESTER OF MEDICAL SCHOOL IS OVER!!!       The morning of July 27th almost feels like a lifetime ago…but at the same time, it’s incredible that we’re already in the middle of December. I really had to pause for a minute and […]

Final Hurdle!

One More Week!! You would think with the three examinations I had last week and with the never-ending supply of information being force-fed to us throughout these past couple of weeks that I would be crawling and gasping for air while hopelessly searching for the finish line…but I’m honestly not. As a matter of fact, […]

I’m Still Sprinting.

I don’t think I like having exams on Mondays. Actually, I know for damn sure I don’t like having Monday exams. But alas, we have our first Biochemistry exam tomorrow…and guess what Biochemistry topics are going to be on the exam? Go ahead, take your best shot. I insist. Enzymes? Yeah. Bioenergetics? Yep. Keep going, there’s […]

Three Week Sprint

I hope that you had a phenomenal Thanksgiving break! I can’t complain about my (unofficially extended) break at all. These past 11 days have been very refreshing for me. Getting out of Winston-Salem to see friends and family in Miami and Virginia was revitalizing, to say the least.  One of the highlights of my trip […]

Final Push!

TEN MORE DAYS. That’s what’s separating me from now and freedom. Well, freedom from anatomy. Biochemistry is right around the corner but we won’t talk about that right now. Just ten days. Granted, I gotta take two different tests in this ten-day span but at this point I don’t even care. I’ve finally developed a study […]

Still Chugging Along

Shoutout to this extra hour we got today! Because of this extra hour, I was able to get through this past Friday’s lecture, get my laundry done, cook my lasagna, write this post, and STILL have time to continue studying tonight. And the best part is, I woke up at noon! 😏 One thing that always annoyed me about […]

Where Has The Time Gone???

Bruhhhh my little brother turns 19 tomorrow…😳😧😰 Where has the time gone?? I still distinctively remember when I was 19, living out my sophomore year of college without a care in the world. Okayyy I cared a little. Had to keep up my GPA to keep my scholarship…and to make sure I became a doctor…but still, […]
