I always say that everyone has a different style of learning. For example, some people would swear that sketchy is the key to success. Personally, I’m not a fan of sketchy. I just find the illustrations too….well not connecting? I’m just not a fan of the illustrations and they don’t stick with me. Again, I … Continue reading My New Favorite Study Aid: “Bacterionomicon”
You know it's funny. When I started this blog, it was just a space to record some fun stuff I was trying out. Then it became more medical school centered. I mean, school is a huge part of my current life, so I guess that change was only natural. However, I actually didn't like it! … Continue reading Why the name change?
Last week was my deload week. In other words, the weight and frequency dropped a fair amount to allow my body to rest and fully recover. To be completely honest, I have never heard of such a week before I started my program, but it was fantastic. Of course, it was a little weird not … Continue reading Deload Week is Over
Let the water strike my head. With its warm soothing touch, I find myself in pause. A hug of something nurturing, like the hug from a loved one. For those few minutes, there's rest. Neither fear nor stress. Just a breath. The grounding sense of the present, and not the drowning pool of worries. I … Continue reading I Find Myself In The Shower.

It's something alright, realizing that you are going to be late if you don't run but trying to run with sore legs. In terms of major movements that I care about in terms of weight, I … Continue reading First Week of April 2019
I remember a year ago, I was concerned about many things. Some of which I still am, and some of which just seem silly now. One question I had before starting school was whether I would actually find myself with time to do things not related to school. I wondered this because I am a … Continue reading What Do I Do for Fun?
I think the title says the gist of what I am saying. I've been off this platform for a long time. A good part of that was time, mainly trying to figure out my way of studying, even more, to make it more efficient. However, another part of that is because I simply became a … Continue reading I disappeared again
Waking at 6am is now late for me.... I finally had the opportunity to sleep in, but my brain won't let me. Guess, back to the grind.
As far as I am aware of, at least most medical schools have it so that your first semester would consist of the basic science courses. In other words, it is second semester when you start going more into a system based system, studying the illnesses and drugs for that system. Since they are differently … Continue reading Medical School: second semester vs first semester
Classes are back in session. The best part of second semester first year is no more anatomy labs. While some people enjoy them, I am not the hugest fan for multiple of reasons. But that’s for another time. I will say I am a bit sad to return to the grind after relaxing and experiencing … Continue reading What now? Me getting Organized.
