Springing On Forward

Do you know how nice it is to finally be able to study outside again? It’s glorious. I can go over PowerPoint slides while enjoying a nice, slightly brisk breeze that works to cool me from the radiant rays of the sun. I can listen to birds chirp some jokes to each other and watch the […]

Back To The Grind

Annnnnd just like that, spring break is over. Time to get back to the grind. I may feel refreshed and prepared to start this new block of material waiting ahead for me, but that doesn’t mean that I want to start. I wouldn’t be mad if we were handed another week off from school, but […]

City Boy in a Country World

Hey. Guess what? IT’S SPRING BREAK BYYOTCHHH!!! And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Okay it actually maybe would have been a bit better if it came a week later, which means it would have then lined up with the spring break of most universities that I know of…but no complaints here. I’ll […]

Two Blocks Down!

I can breathe. In this past week, I managed to get through a 100-question test based on everything I’ve learned in the past few weeks as well as a cumulative 166-question test based on everything I’ve learned since Anatomy ended back in November. That’s 266 questions homie. Best part is, only three days separated these […]

Well, it’s one of those weeks again. I have two tests coming up: one on Tuesday that covers Viruses, Fungi, Autoimmunity, Hypersensitivity & Parasites and a cumulative final on Friday that covers everything from Biochemistry to what I just finished learning now. So that means everything I’ve learned since I finished Anatomy back in November. […]

Growth, Control & Breaking Stereotypes.

February is already looking like its going to fly by very quick. But then again, when has time not flown by since I started medical school back in late July? It’s damn near impossible to fathom how fast I’m approaching my second year of medical school…almost nerve-wracking. I don’t feel that much different from when I […]

Ready For February.

I hope y’all had a great weekend! I know I did 😁. I ended up spending it with a special person, who also came with me dressed hella nice to Wake’s medical school prom. By the way, the prom was a good time, and the open wine bar was a fabulous (and dangerous 😳) addition. So with […]

Working Smarter > Working Harder

I woke up to snow this morning. I literally haven’t seen snow fall since high school…it was a pretty neat scene. But then my amazement quickly spiraled into horror when I remembered I had to walk my friend’s dog. Try to imagine my face when I took my first step outside in those freezing white flurries. […]

Knowledge is Power.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned since starting medical school back in July, it’s that it really has a way of humbling you. I knew when I started med school that I didn’t know much about medicine and that I would have a lot to learn…but looking back now, it’s scary to see how very little […]
