HAAIII GUYS! I haven’t written a blog post in so long 😦 . Today I’m writing a little one just to share what has been going on in my life and what is to come in the next month or so!

But now, I am so close to spring break! My girl Anne (@loveandscrubs_) tagged me to … More The Medical Tag; Q&A!
I just had two exams on Friday (thank the lord I passed both). I had an entire weekend to catch up on sleep, spend some much needed time with my boyfriend, watch TV, completely relax, and I even went to a baseball game. Today, I only had two lectures (one less than usual). Yet here … More Body, Mind, and Environment
I seem to be a pretty typical medical student. I have wanted to be a doctor for as long as I can remember. When I was little, I wasn’t grossed out by blood, I wasn’t afraid of shots and needles, and I loved science projects and puzzles. Growing up, I did good in school, loved science … More First is the Worst, Second is the Best
