Irreplaceable Moments

It wasn’t too long ago that I wrote about my experiences in starting the graduate nursing residency program at my place of hire, yet now I stand nearing the end of my training period; with my hospital orientation on track for me working on my own around Thanksgiving of this year, I’m being worked to the bone with some of the most complex cases that they can muster. The idea of being independent is thrilling, if not a little scary. … Continue reading

Secure in Our Travels Together

Near the start of my second semester at medical school, I began writing a post discussing the way I regarded some of my friends, namely some who I had the opportunity to bond with throughout my time at undergrad. Amidst the trials associated with medical school and the new friends I had made there, I still persisted in thinking about my college friends from time — a testament to the impact of these ties on my life.

A Different Sort of Spring Break

Since medical school is so time consuming, even the shortest holidays make it feel as if one hasn’t been at school for a while.

I suppose that’s also my personality under normal circumstances. I quietly reflect and pick apart my feelings, exposing underlying feelings that give me a better understanding about the … Continue reading

It has certainly been an interesting summer for me, despite it being one of the busiest that I have ever had. Now that my undergraduate senior year has started, I actually have more free time than I had in the summer and am able to sit down and write about how I met another one of my online friends for the first time in real life. As with my meet up with Balance, I feel that this meeting will be … Continue reading

Invisible Friends

It fascinates me to no end how technology these days lets us make friends and stay in touch with people who cross our paths online. I remember that when I was younger, kids in my grade level had a hard time staying in touch because email was not widespread among us and platforms such as Facebook did not exist yet. Partly due to the amount of times I had to move in my middle school years, I have come to … Continue reading
