Freshly Meal Service Review

Today I have the pleasure of reviewing Freshly, a chef-prepared gourmet meal service that is delivered right to your door. Many of you know how exhausting and time-consuming being a medical student is. 99% of the time, it feels like you barely have any time to eat, sleep, or breathe. I was pretty good about grocery shopping and cooking for myself all throughout my first year of medical school, but now that second year is upon me, I’ve definitely been slacking.…

One of the most exciting rites of passage in medical school is receiving your white coat. The white coat is a symbol of all the hard work that has led you to become a medical student as well as a symbol of the long road ahead to becoming a physician.

Maevn Uniforms EON Scrubs Review

When I first got accepted to medical school, one of the things I was most excited for was being able to wear scrubs. (So silly, but I’m sure many others can relate.)

If it’s more serious than that I can hit up one of the many urgent care clinics that seem to be on every other block. Worst case scenario, I call…

Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats

We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but how many of us actually eat breakfast every day? (And no, coffee doesn’t count.) Eating a substantial and healthy breakfast is especially important in medical school where we need to maintain our energy for studying. I love making overnight oats for a quick grab-and-go breakfast that will keep me full and focused through the morning. Here’s the recipe for the overnight oats I made last night to eat…

When Andrew and I moved into our apartment in July, I had a long list of DIY projects I wanted to tackle which included things like refinishing our wooden dressers, building a gallery wall for our office, and creating some DIY canvas art for our bedroom. Ambitious. School started in August and those tasks quickly landed at the bottom of my to-do list. It wasn’t until this past weekend that I finally found some time to tackle one of these…
