Final Rotation

Tomorrow will mark the first day of my final clinical rotation of medical school. As I’m sitting here typing this, I can’t help but feel a strong sense of awe and wonder about how far I’ve come in my medical education. After spending so much time regarding the end of my fourth-year as a time […]

The Waiting Game Begins…

Welp, there goes another week. It pretty much flew by just as fast as the previous week did, and I don’t know how to feel about that. I’m loving my time in fourth-year right now and as they always say, times flies when you’re having fun. I don’t really want the rest of this year […]

Time Is Of The Essence

Well, just like every other year, Daylight Savings got me all messed up this morning. It never seems to fail; I always know it’s coming up and I try to prepare myself for it but once the day finally arrives, I usually find myself mentally discombobulated as I begin to process the fact that I’ve […]

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 […]
