As interview season slows down (at least for most specialties), it’s time to start putting together your rank list and deciding on where you want to do your next few years of training! It’s exciting but also a bit nerve-wracking … Continue reading Choosing a residency program
I’m back from vacation feeling better than ever! You know how sometimes you take a vacation, and by the time it’s over, you feel like you need a vacation from the vacation?? Not this time. Me and my girls did … Continue reading 4th year Vacay Recap
Happy Easter! It’s true that in the 4th year of medical school, you have more free time than you’ll probably ever have again in your medical career, until you retire. And what better to do with all this time than … Continue reading Traveling Season
This weekend, 3 of my friends and I took a small girls trip to Chicago in celebration of my pal Stacy’s birthday. The best part of it was paying for all my flights with rewards points. And of course getting … Continue reading Girls Trip to Chicago and VLOG!
*Long post, lots of updates!* The past two weeks have actually been pretty busy despite not being on clinical rotations. I’m actually very thankful that I don’t have clinical rotations going on because it’s been nice having the flexibility to … Continue reading Post-Match Adulting

Turns out I’m ending 4th year on a more somber note than I expected.

It’s officially the end of my vacation block and time for me to start doing real work again. I have 2 more rotations to complete before the end of my duties as a medical student! Tomorrow begins my Ambulatory Medicine clerkship, which will be made of smaller rotations through various Internal Medicine clinics such as Pulmonology, Rheumatology, Nephrology, etc. I’ve definitely enjoyed my time off, but I’m ready to get back into the workflow again because the sooner I start, the sooner I finish, and your girl is ready to be DONE! I guess I’m also looking forward to the … Continue reading Last Stretch!
So, this will probably be the last you hear of me for 2018 because I’m traveling to Nigeria in 2 days and will be there for the rest of the year. Unfortunately, this is also going to be a short … Continue reading Going, going, gone!
