My 3rd Year

My 3rd Year

On My Mind 3

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated about being in Medical School, so I figured, I might as well. I’m currently in my “3rd year” right now. Last we chatted up, I was bummed that I didn’t pass my COMP exam. Wow, that’s been a hot minute! Since then, I’ve switched schools, took the Step 1 exam and didn’t pass, unfortunately. I had to do a prep course in Michigan and… Read more »

Is It Wrong That I Don’t Cry?!

Is It Wrong That I Don’t Cry?!

On My Mind 16

I was talking to my mother recently about things I can’t even remember and we stumbled across the fact that I literally can’t remember the last time I cried. I’ve never been a sensitive person, often choosing to hold it all in or never even having the urge to cry, even while growing up. That’s not to say I’ve never cried before in my life, but when I was consciously… Read more »

Blog Related, On My Mind 2

You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit…absent lately on the blog. Remember waaaayyyy back in July/August when I talked about a blog hiatus and going off-grid to study for my BIG ASS BOARD EXAM?! Well, turns out, I can’t go off-grid… Yes, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have noticed me here and there. I truly am an addict. Sigh… BUT I did remain… Read more »

I’m Quitting the Internet!

I’m Quitting the Internet!

On My Mind 7

Yes, you heard that right folks! Since my USMLE Step 1 exam is about a month away, it’s Crunch Time, baby! Sigh, which means I need to cut out all distractions, for real this time. Considering how I’ve been around the block a few times when it comes to testing, I know, deep down, what exactly is holding me back, I just don’t like to admit it. But this is… Read more »

Is It Worth It?!

Is It Worth It?!

On My Mind 12

You know that feeling of insignificance where you wonder if people even hear you? If people overlook what you say in favor of other, more important people? Do you even make a difference? What is the point in doing all this work if no one even cares what you have to say? I’ve been doing this blog thing for a few years now and it hasn’t gotten to where I… Read more »

I’m Officially On a Book-Buying Ban!

Books, On My Mind 6

You heard that right! As of this moment, at least until the end of the year, I cannot/will not buy any more books! Why, you ask?! Well, for one thing, my TBR pile is GINORMOUS! I will update this post with a picture (probably on Wednesday) of all the physical books I still need to read, not to mention the ton I have on my kindle. Seriously, it’s getting out… Read more »

Happy 27th Birthday to ME!

Happy 27th Birthday to ME!

On My Mind 6

Well, the day has finally come. I’m officially 27 years old. Doesn’t it suck that birthdays don’t really make you feel any different, especially when you’re older?! Sure when you were a kid you’d get all excited and happy, you’d get a TON of presents and your friends and family would shower you with birthday wishes, cards, balloons, and that oh-so-special birthday cake. Nowadays, it’s all about the Facebook “Happy… Read more »

Happy 5 Year Anniversary to US!

Happy 5 Year Anniversary to US!

Marriage, On My Mind 1

Wow! 5 years. Such a blip in the grand scheme of things, but it’s still a milestone. Something worth celebrating and rejoicing over. Sadly, Hubbi and I are celebrating without each other once again. It sucks I have to be at school, again, while Hubbi stays home working & with the kids. We’ll be reminiscing and smiling at each other over Skype, if the WiFi behaves and we can get… Read more »

Michigan Does Not Like Me

Michigan Does Not Like Me

On My Mind 0

DON’T drive from Pennsylvania to Michigan because something like this might happen to your car: I’m in Michigan. For school. And considering that I wanted to bring a ton of stuff with me and the hours didn’t SEEM so bad, I decided to drive here. Well, let me tell you I was not so lucky. I barely made it out of Philly when a stupid rock hit my windshield! FML!!!… Read more »

Why Is It SO Hard for Me to Make Friends?!

Why Is It SO Hard for Me to Make Friends?!

On My Mind 6

So I’m currently in MI taking a review program for the USMLE Step 1 so this place is totally new to me. The drive was okay, although I did manage to get a speeding ticket, FML, and some stupid rock made a small crack in my windshield, double FML; but otherwise I got here safe and sound. I’ve been adjusting for the past couple of days and started class yesterday…. Read more »
