I’m Finally a Medical Student!

1804 Views

Soooooo I’m a TERRIBLE blogger. Since my last post, things got a little A LOT bit crazy. In the past two and a half months, I traveled to China to visit my family, moved into my new apartment, underwent an extremely stressful Joint Commission review at my hospital, and started medical school. During orientation, I kept having this overwhelming feeling of “this is where I’m supposed to be.” I can’t really explain it, but it’s as if all of my…

Sunday Sentiments

One of the people I admire most in this world is my younger sister, Virginia. She is seriously one of the smartest, kindest, coolest human beings I know. She’s also my best friend. Someone whom I can have an entire conversation with without even speaking a word. Someone who always listens and never judges. Someone I can be 100% myself around without worrying what anyone will think of me (and trust me, I can get pretty W E I R D). She’s…

Life Lately

Life has been pretty chaotic lately. Andrew and I went to visit his parents in Florida a few weeks ago and I haven’t been able to get back into my routine ever since we came back to New York.

One of my favorite things about spring is the beautiful plants and flowers that begin to bloom (allergies, not so much). I can’t wait for the day I have my own outdoor space and can start a garden. For now, I’ll just have to stick to house plants. On Friday I took a…

Hitting the Slopes

Did I go snowboarding or did an 18-wheeler plow into me last night? Judging from the way I felt this morning, I’m not exactly sure. A bunch of my friends and I headed up to Warwick, NY yesterday for a night on the slopes (2 for 1 lift tickets after 5pm!). I’ve gone skiing a handful of times and took snowboarding lessons once in high school, so I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to snow sports. Skiing…

Decisions Decisions

I’m at a point in my life where every decision I’m faced with becomes this huge life-changing ordeal for me. I feel like every choice I make is going to affect the rest of my life and the consequences won’t be reversible. My Type A obsessive-compulsive-neurosis turns small decisions like figuring out what to do for dinner into life or death situations with repercussions that will affect my grandchildren. Should we go out to dinner or just go grocery shopping…
