Life In A Cheat Code

Yeah, yeah I know it’s Saturday. You probably weren’t expecting a post today but since I’m going back to camp tonight to start my third week there, there’s no telling when I’ll have time to type something up tomorrow. My schedule has been in a bit of disarray as of late with the SNMA conference […]

Stepping Back Into Step

Well I must say, I like being a fourth-year so far. Yeah I know it’s only been a week and all, but man has it been chill. It has actually been one of the most relaxing weeks I’ve had in a while. I mean, I did have to go through my Procedures OSCE (Objective Structured […]

Rude Awakening

You know, it’s hilarious just how pumped and bright-eyed I ALWAYS seem to be right after a break from school, only to be brutally reminded about what’s really good when I get slammed with work to do as soon as my first week back starts. And I’m not even necessarily talking about the work I […]

Never in a million years did I ever think that I would be reconsidering my “definite” decision of pursuing Ophthalmology as a career. I had been told numerous times that clinical rotations […]

Also, with March comes Step Study Block. As a matter of fact, the study block starts […]

Straight Grindin’

Alright I knew I would be hitting the ground running when I got back to school… BUT DAMN!!! *in my best Chris Tucker voice* I don’t think I’ve really been able to catch much of a break since getting back from Atlanta last Monday. I started class Tuesday morning with four lectures of Renal Pathology […]

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.ย ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ I don’t want the Obamas to have to leave the White House!! President Obama is the coolest & chillest […]

Growing Pains

Tell me why I went into this weekend TEN lectures behind in material. TEN LECTURES BEHIND. The sad part is, I was actively trying to keep up all last week. But between the SIXTEEN lengthy lectures given to us just last week, my threeย and-a-halfย hourย clinical skills class, my Clinical Practice Assessment Exam (CPX) where I had […]
