Christel Wekon-Kemeni, (3/8) M.D.

Winter Break is Here!!! And you already know what that means… I’m three semesters deep into my MD program!!! After next semester, I’ll be halfway done with medical school! Isn’t that insane? And soon after next semester, I’ll be starting my clinical rotations in the hospital! I can hardly believe it. The closer I get […]

The Joy of Resilience

It’s been about a week since we started the Renal block, and I believe it’s safe to say that the physiology of the kidneys is complex as hell. I’ve been hammering away at it all week and I still am far from comfortable with how the kidneys work…and we have an exam on the physiology […]

The Five-Day Block.

Good God. Last week was a lot. Buuut I finished the Derm block thooo!! Having a week-long block was an intriguing, yet annoying experience that I would never want to have to go through again. I was literally studying at all times, even having to sacrifice an hour or three of sleep in order to […]

Eye of the Hurricane

Thanksgiving break was very much needed man. Especially after those two monster exams last Monday and Tuesday. Being at home stress-free with family and friends while enjoying an almost endless supply of free homemade food has simply been fantastic. I had to have gained about five pounds or so this weekend…I just haven’t stopped eating […]

Keep Ya Head Up

So I’m STILL not over the results of the election. To tell the truth, there’s a very high chance I’ll never be over what happened less than two weeks ago. The aftermath has been even worse with Trump picking extreme people for his cabinet who could completely halt and reverse the progress that we’ve made […]

Sickening Reality

I’ve come to realize that thereΒ aren’t many things in this world that faze me. Sure, I get surprised here and there, but I take the surprises with stride and usually maintain control of myself and my emotions. Very few times have I been left physically and emotionally stunned about anything. What happened last Tuesday night […]

The Power of Discussions

That extra hour of sleep was very, very clutch. But this also means that it’s going to get darker earlier, which is annoying. Winter is officially coming. And you know what else is coming? ELECTION DAY. 😭😭😭😭😭 I don’t want the Obamas to have to leave the White House!! President Obama is the coolest & chillest […]

Fulfilling Opportunities

Okay first things first. I saw Presidential-Nominee Hillary Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama on Thursday! It was awesome getting to see them, especially since I learned that they were going to be in Winston only a few days prior to the event. As you can see, the rallyΒ was stupid packed…I barely got into the […]

City Boy Back In A Country World

As you can see from the title of this post, I was back in the good ol’ town of Lenoir, NC this past week. Unlike last time though, spring break isn’t starting…instead, I’m starting my Gastrointestinal block tomorrow. Le sigh. It’s okay though, this is the last block to get through before Thanksgiving break! And […]

Sessions.

Well, this past week has been quite an interesting one. From attending a session based on the perspectives of respiratory patients, where I learned that my course director was Dr. Maya Angelou’s doctor for about 20 years, to meeting Dr. John Carlos (the Olympian who raised his fist in the 1968 Olympics after receiving the […]
