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?
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
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.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and therefore, I do not have class for the remainder of this week. I, personally, am going home to spend time with my parents. But, I do know many people who are staying at school. While it is a nice break from everything, I probably am going to study for parts of … Continue reading Thanksgiving is Tomorrow, What a Medical Student Will Be Doing
