thankful thoughts (day 330)

I think the biggest thing I am thankful is that I’m not in the same place I was a year ago.

I’m thankful for all the little things that make me smile on a daily basis. I’m thankful that I met such a solid group of people four months ago, who let me be my crazy self. Thankful for old friends who stay with me and work around my crazy schedule without complaint. I am thankful for my sister, who lets me panic before every exam, and always tells me that I can do it, and for my parents, who are too good to me.

I am lucky. Happy tofurkey day.

what does arizona have that california doesn’t (day 307)

my favorite place in the world is that house at the end of the cul de sac, in spring valley, in the little dustbowl of over-populated las vegas. that house will still be there  after these three months are up, but it may not mean home anymore, and that is incredibly sad. but it will be okay, because i have some of the happiest memories there. in response to me saying i wanted to cry, b said “why? we already live in separate states” YEAH BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT. it was nice having someone at home base in NV.

“You can’t leave New York, you’re the Chrysler building!”

here’s to new adventures, i guess.

the rest of my day? four hours of lecture, four hours of OMM, getting caught in the rain on the walk home, leftover tortellini for dinner, and now catching up on another four (why is everything in fours?) hours of lecture… YAY.

good start to november… (day 305)


Is it officially fall? The changing leaves say yes, but the weather says otherwise.

I started my favorite month in the hospital! I’m fine, just needed staples in my knee after taking a particularly nasty fall yesterday. I was not brave, but to be fair, I got stapled without any numbing. It’s so inconvenient and I just hang my head and laugh at the ridiculousness of this situation. I can’t bend my knee, and this makes A LOT of basic daily things very difficult.

Also, I want to feel bad that this “daily” blog has only seen one post per month (per month!) for the past few months. I don’t really feel bad though. Honestly, my life is nothing but studying, and I just haven’t had the time. But I want to make a concerted effort to attempt to document things better. I’ll do my best, but this is a very busy month, with exams every week until Thanksgiving.

I am going to spend my evening icing my leg. Rabbit rabbit, and happy November.

happy 6 (day 302)

LOL just kidding.

Today I went to school early, sat through biochem, had lunch outside on this beautiful sunny day, went to get my first aid book bound, and have been going over lectures for the past three hours.

Having a day like this sounds monotonous and boring, but it’s a dream come true.

We officially finished anatomy on Monday. I am missing it already- half day of lectures + lab is definitely preferred over 6+ lectures a day.

There’s not much else going on… H&P SP on Monday… and basically studying all weekend. That’s all I got for now.

day 272

Hey remember that time I started medical school and completely forgot about this ol’ blog?


I have this weird disconnect where I wake up some mornings and still think I live in Las Vegas… But life is good. Constantly stressful, but good.

More updates later, promise.
