today’s study set up ☻ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I have a pretty busy week coming up with 2 exams and a quiz, so this weekend consists of mostly studying ✍🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ are you studying this weekend? what’s your week look like? let me know 👇🏼
I’ve been listening to slowed down versions of Billie Eilish’s songs today and can’t lie it hits differently👀
Unconventional ways to shadow: Because honestly you probably are busy, don’t have 5 doctors on speed dial, and aren’t sure what you’re even supposed to do! Shadowing a doctor is important because it can help give you some insight into the medical field and start networking with mentors. But you don’t “need” to shadow a lot. Anywhere from 40-80 hours is plenty to apply to medical school with especially if you have some diversity in the specialties you’ve shadowed and also have clinical experience. Nonetheless, where can you start finding shadowing opportunities 𝕖𝕤𝕡𝕖𝕔𝕚𝕒𝕝𝕝𝕪 if you don’t have connections, live in a rural area, or are otherwise limited. #1 place to start is with your own doctor. OBGYN, primary care doctor, or any doctor you have an appointment with. Ask in person, and explain that you’re a premedical student interested in shadowing. More often than not doctors are welcoming to student shadows. Sometimes their practice/job will have restrictions and that’s okay. Maybe ask a follow up if they have any colleagues who would be open to letting you shadow! #2 go to your premed friends. Other premeds have to shadow also and likely have contacts from the doctors they shadowed! This is a great way to find a physician who is open to shadows. You can also ask your school’s advisor or premed club as there are often lists of doctors to shadow. #3 consider a shadowing “block” of time. This may be harder to come by BUT it’s a great option for non-grad students or those who are limited in resources/time. If you can find a doctor or two who will allow you to spend a week or two with them you will have 𝕡𝕝𝕖𝕟𝕥𝕪 of hours for your application and it’s does not look bad to have a chunk of shadowing hours. It would be problematic if this were clinical experience or volunteering but shadowing is more of a thing for 𝕪𝕠𝕦, not to impress admissions committees. I still continue to shadow even as a medical student because it’s a good way to reconnect with what makes me happy and motivated! How have you found meaningful shadow experiences? ⬇️
What are y’all up to this lovely Saturday? - Starting off my weekend with readings for my MBoD & Women Writers courses! In MBoD, we’re studying cholesterol regulation and the SREBP/SCAP/INSIG interaction in the ER membrane. In WW, I’m starting “A Room on One’s Own” by Virginia Woolf, one of my favorite authors! To cap it off, my professor wants me to submit an essay on the book to a national competition (yikes ), so I’ll be pretty thorough with this reading and critical analysis. - Also… will I ever stop talking about cell signaling? Nope! - #studygram #study #studymotivation #notes #notetaking #medicine #premed #science #stem #studynotes #motivation #medblr #mildliner #whitelines
It’s CCA/sports week folks! Means funnnnnnn times ahead! It started off with a singing contest that was also the opening ceremony. We had performances by bands like @saaz_theband After that were a series of indoor competitions like art, calligraphy ( @borrowed_pencils won that shit second time in a row ). Clinics are clearly not the most exciting thing in my schedule anymore lol. We also had a students vs teachers debate. That was 🔥🔥. It was amazing to see students and teachers have a sophisticated dialogue on some serious serious issues! @dr .nazish was one of the speakers and made some good points that I agreed with. (Don’t tell @my peers but I voted for the teacher side in the end even though they didn’t win 😂 ). The debate was ‘university students should never criticise the institute on social media’. I agree. Not everyone on social media is concerned with the students and their issues some just show up for the entertainment. We had E sports and it was pretty funny to watch some gamers get excited in the library and start banging stuff when shit hit the fan 😂. We had a crime scene investigation too. The victim who was supposed to be dead eyed me 👀 😂😂. I’ve never had so much fun in uni before. I’m amazed. I’ve really treated this place like a... building. Just some place to study and get away from once I got the job done. This week it was more than that. There was activity, flair and most of all... positive vibes. Everywhere. Happiness. It’s everywhere at uni. Every corridor every hall. Best part and my most fav part has to be that all institutes and programs got together. I met kids from the dental school, pharmacy, physio therapy nursing etc. Interprofessional education is so important for people who will work in healthcare! Glad to be part of a uni that has all these programs under one roof! The lettered quote is inspired by a certain discovery I made. I’ve come to realise everyone in university has a past or story. In fact, people have a whole life outside uni you can’t guess at. Don’t judge someone till you walk a mile in their shoes- Id add that you walk that mile in their neighbourhood too. I wish someone would treat me the same too sometimes
Reading Time📚 Most of the time I feel so overwhelmed while reading scientific papers😣 Most of the information, either I don't know or don't even understand 🙄😵 . . . #goals #medicine #pharmacy #pharmacology #medicalstudent #medlife #medblr #pharmacylife #clinicalresearch #clinicaltrials #researchlife #research #scientificresearch #scientist #science #study #studygram #positivevibesonly #enjoythelittlethings #focus #faith #havefaith #believeinyourself #inspiration #motivationalquotes #coffee #coffeeaddict #coffeelife

And just like that, my pre-clerkship years are basically over! Today was our last day of required class. Now all that's left is my final exam and Step 1! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel (there are more tunnels after that, but let's not think about that right now 😉 )
Yo. Long time no update? 🤔 I’ve started making little changes to my routine to get back to the old routine I loved following. I’ve started sleeping and waking up earlier and earlier until I can wake up at 5am. I’ve also been studying alone more, only because my schedule doesn’t quite line up with some of my friends and I never wanna leave the house (gas is expensive in Los Angeles and I don’t work🥴 ). Studying alone has proven to be effective time and time again in my past, so I started to do it the last 3 months. I’m also meal prepping the food I would prep before when I was 60lbs lighter. Wraps and salads and chicken. That’s it. I know life is dynamic and it isn’t always easy to follow your own schedule, but I’m going to be as consistent as I possibly can because I’m not going to lose a fight with time management 🤪👩🏻⚕️🩺😂 . #nursing #nursingschool #studentnurse #rn #bsn #study #studygram #medgram #medblr #studyblr #medicalstudent #medicalschool #yearofthenurse #studymotivation

ℝ𝕖𝕤𝕖𝕒𝕣𝕔𝕙 - Research is one of my absolute favorite things to do! I’m a very curious person, so trying to discover new things is right up my alley. - I started doing research the fall of my sophomore year (fall 2018 ) with a professor at my university. I do basic science research, looking at the protein Plk1 and how its associated proteins interact at the kinetochore-microtubule attachment site. I do a lotttt of microscopy, indirect immunofluorescence, flow cytometry and more! - Last summer (2019 ), after my sophomore year, I was lucky enough to participate in an REU program at the University of Maryland. There, I worked in a biochemistry lab, looking at how cell cycle checkpoint protein Rad9 impacted DNA binding affinity. I did a whole bunch of western blots, knockdowns and PCR. - Doing this much research has shown me how much I really love working in the lab, and it is the major reason why I’m pursuing an MD/PhD in the future! I love research and medicine, and I want to work at the intersection where the meet. - Do you guys do any research? If so, what? - #studygram #study #studymotivation #notes #notetaking #medicine #premed #science #stem #studynotes #motivation #medblr #research #mdphd
Niemiecki, zaczęłam się go uczyć mając 12 lat, nie ukrywam było to ciężkie, ponieważ w szkole nikt za nim szczególnie nie przepadał. Zaczęłam więc chodzić na kurs, cóż jak możecie się domyślić byłam tam najmłodsza. Nauka tego języka zawsze sprawiała mi wiele radości. Jedyne czego żałuję to tego, że gdy byłam w liceum na poziomie B2 a potem C1 nie odważyłam się zdać certyfikatu. Przez kilka lat studiów (poza pierwszym rokiem kiedy miałam na studiach medyczny język niemiecki ) nie miałam z nim kontaktu. Postanowiłam to zmienić. Podstaw nie zapomniałam. Odświeżanie okazało się nie takie trudne. Kochani języki obce bardzo się przydają, dlatego zachęcam Was do ich nauki : ) #deustch #medlife #studygrampolska #studygrampl #studying #study #deutschlehren #deutshalsfremdsprache #nicht #so #schwiereg #medicine #medicinestudentin #medblr #medblog #medicin #medycyna #futuredoctor #ärztinwerden #ärztin #l4l #naukawre

med student diaries: DON’T be like me and show up to your neuro rotation with a 512 HZ tuning fork attempting to test vibration and proprioception for a neuro exam. The attending will make fun of you and tell you to go to ENT with that. You need a 126 Hz. Yeah you’re welcome. why didn’t anyone tell me 🗣 also don’t be like me and show up with your coat inside out and be the laughing joke of your team for the rest of the day Who else makes the dumbest mistakes as a 3rd year????? brb let me go play hide and seek inside the MRI suite until the rotation is over 😭 Oh just me? Kay. Hahahahahaa neuro is going great y’all for those of you asking for updates from me.

AmeriCorps- City Year⠀ ⠀ So after much requests, here's my experience with AmeriCorps City Year. ⠀ ⠀ City Year is one of the many federal AmeriCorps Program, located in many (I think 30? cities ) in the US, England and South Africa. Main goal is to assist students in an underserved school, mainly to eliminate the hardships that come with poor teacher-student ratio, societal concerns and low resources. You may serve with CY for half year, full year or multiple year(s ). ⠀ ⠀ I served with City Year in a US elementary school for a year, primarily at a 4th grade classroom. The city I served had prevalent substance abuse concerns in addition to poor resources. The students I met, the stories I heard and the lives I touched has a very special place in my heart; something words shall never be able to describe. ⠀ ⠀ "Ms. D, my dad told me that my mom died after eating olives in her room", said a student describing his mom's death due to OD. ⠀ "Ms. D, thank you for coming into our lives. I am one day going to be a doctor so that you can mentor me once again in the future." ⠀ ⠀ In addition to (possibly & hopefully ) changing students' lives, CY gave us plenty of opportunities to network with amazing leaders and do other volunteering activities. Some of my exciting memories include meeting mayors and governor(and his family ) of the state I served. ⠀ ⠀ If you are shopping for activities to do in your gap year(s ), I HIGHLY recommend City Year. They're located in many areas. DM for any questions. I am happy to help. #americorps #CityYear #makebetterhappen
Attended my first suture clinic last night and it was really cool to actually learn a medical procedure! I’m not gonna lie though, it was pretty difficult at first. I don’t know how surgeons can use their hands for hours 😅 If you guys ever have the opportunity to attend a suture clinic i highly recommend it! Often it feels like we’re so far away from being able to even do simple procedures like this, but going to the suture clinic reminded me of what I’ll be doing some day and really motivated me. • • • #premed #futuredoctor #student #college #collegelife #collegestudent #whitecoatambition #scrubs #medicine #premedlife #premedstudent #motivation #motivational #study #studying #studyspo #studymotivation #medblr #blogger #studyblr #confidence #womeninmedicine

What’s with the ‘medstagrams’ ~ When I started on Instagram I had no idea it would turn into the amazing community it is today! My first post on AbisAnatomy was during my MCAT studies when I decided to share a little bit about my journey and what I was going through. I kept the page on the very down-low until October 2018 when I was accepted to medical school. At that point, I decided to open up and talk more about my experiences with hopes of helping even one or two premeds. I had no idea how many of us are out there! ~ Dreaming. Sacrificing. Studying. Hoping. Doing. Learning. Succeeding. But here we all are and from that point forward this community was created one day at a time — and I’m really grateful it was. I remain strong with my original intentions from this page to mentor, connect, and inspire others and similarly be mentored and inspired by others. Sometimes I’m tempted to just post a quick photo with a meaningless caption to ‘make sure I’m posting enough.’ But that’s not why I came here and it’s not what I intend to do. So every post gets a meaningful thought out idea and it pushes me to both think AND create! How great is that! My goal remains to provide a safe place for students and healthcare professionals to grow, learn, engage, and connect. I hope you find that same meaning as I do! Having an ‘influencer’ page is rather strange in a way because I’m a totally average person who just happens to share my ideas with lots of people. But that’s the beauty of social media in my mind. Normal people with normal lives can meet other cool normal people far away from them and we never would have met otherwise! So, today I’m going to answer any and ALL questions you have about being an influencer or anything you’ve been wondering about. Feel free to ask about the business side of it, how it impacts my life on the daily, if it interferes with school, how many people know about it, etc. Ask anything you want in the comments and I’ll spill all the tea! Comment all your questions! ⬇️ . . . Happy Thursday and don’t forget to eat some plants today! 👩🏽⚕️🧬🥦
My student life hasn’t really been interesting lately😂 Here’s a quick sum up : I’ve been to Finland, which was awesome, I started my neurology rotation, which is interesting but not for me and I’m currently trying not to fall asleep on my desk😅 how was your day guys?😂 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #school #class #studygram #medschool #medstudent #medblr #student #students #instagood #classmates #studyspo #envywear #medicalstudent #work #homework #books #book #photooftheday #textbook #textbooks #studyblr #flatlay #aesthetic #lifestyle #university #college
𝐖𝐄'𝐑𝐄 𝐀𝐋𝐋 𝐅𝐑𝐀𝐔𝐃𝐒 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ many of us struggle to accept - let alone be proud of - ourselves for who we are and all we have accomplished, flaws and quirks included. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ too often, i find myself comparing my life to others, feeling that I don’t measure up. i go back and forth all the time wondering if i belong in my program and how i even got here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ enter: 𝚒𝚖𝚙𝚘𝚜𝚝𝚎𝚛 𝚜𝚢𝚗𝚍𝚛𝚘𝚖𝚎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ i didn’t graduate from the honors college at my school or graduate at the top of my class during undergrad. i didn’t do undergrad research. i don’t think i have some crazy talent that sets me apart from others in my cohort. sometimes (okay a lot of the time ) i feel like it was pure luck that i made it this far in my academic career. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ going to grad school comes with this undeniable pressure of achieving success, with the bar being set higher and higher each semester. ultimately this arbitrary bar that is being raised creates these feelings of imposter syndrome, causing me to wonder whether or not I really belong in graduate school and if I’m really ready for the challenges that lie ahead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ there are many days throughout the semester, and when i’m working on my thesis, that i wonder if i really am qualified to be here. i go through dark periods of self doubt when i see my friends relaxing and having fun while i’m at home struggling to get a project done or i’m up late studying because something in lecture didn’t make sense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ reminder: ᴡᴇ ᴀʟʟ ʙᴇʟᴏɴɢ ʜᴇʀᴇ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ imposter syndrome may not be a real diagnosis, but the pain and anxiety stems from feeling inadequate sits heavy on our shoulders. to be honest with ourselves is key and so is opening up. so here i am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ so to everyone who feels this all too familiar feeling, know that you are exactly where you are meant to be. that feeling may never go away, but maybe it will be helpful to know that so many of us feel it too 🤍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comment below if you’ve ever felt imposter syndrome! 🖐🏻
Let go of resentments. Harbouring negative feelings about others inhibits your own personal growth. Your heart and mind needs to offload emotional garbage you carry so it can have the space to grow- someone made a snide comment about you, said something hurtful, backstabbed you, disregarded you, made you feel insecure or was just down right rude for no reason, let it go. Let them be. The old me would’ve lost sleep over why a certain someone would go ahead and talk crap about me behind my back when I was genuinely nice to them. But the new me no longer cares. The kindness I extend to people is for my own sanity, no matter how badly I want to give them a piece of mind at times, I withhold the anger and respond in the nicest way possible. Because it saves me from countless debates I would have with myself later- why did I say that, what would she think, I shouldn’t have hurt her, I should’ve been the bigger person and let go. So that’s what I do. I know some might disagree but I for once have never felt good about arguments and confrontations. So I’ve stopped taking things to heart, in one ear and out the other. Distance yourself from people who only talk about other people, or their appearances. It’s beyond your time and age to entertain conversations that are no way helping you grow. And it works out so wonderfully that I wish I had a way to explain. I like to live my life in harmony and go to bed each night fully aware that there is no one in the world hurting right now or losing sleep over something I said or did. Few minutes of patience, a moment of silence can save you from a lot of trash talk you end up spewing when you’re angry or hurt or just off your emotional chart. We talk about making this world a better place, it can’t just happen. You have to work for it, so start with yourself. Don’t just preach kindness, practice it. In what you do, in what you say, in how you talk to people and how you treat them. You’ll feel lighter, less drama, and see how good you feel in your skin when you just stop caring about everything people say. You let your part of the good out there in the universe and you’ll see how it reciprocates back.
As many of you know, I’ve been dealing with the aftermath of a flood for the past couple of months. One of the things I really wanted to focus on was making my room my happy place, even if it is temporary until I go to residency. I’ve been thinking a lot about what kind of color schemes and themes I wanted to decorate my new space.⠀ ⠀ I’m so incredibly lucky to have an artist as one of my best friends and knew that I NEEDED to have one of her pieces featured in my new room. All I mentioned was that I wanted a purple and black geode and boy, did she deliver! So now I present to you the most beautiful piece of art I think I have ever seen!! I honestly cannot even begin to describe all the details of this masterpiece and the photos really don’t do it justice!!⠀ ⠀ Soolmoz has been one of my best friends since high school and we have gone through so much together. She has been there for me through this crazy journey from music to medicine and I have seen her flourish into an amazing and incredible artist (though she was always amazing…so just more amazing ❤️ ). A few years ago she took to Instagram with her talent and has been killing it ever since!!⠀ ⠀ You can find her unbelievable talent with make-up at @soolmuaz ⠀ ⠀ She also has an account her mixed media arts at @soolyart ⠀ ⠀ I feel like it goes without saying, as she is an actual personal friend of mine, but I am not being paid to promote her or her work and I bought the piece with my own money. I just love her a lot and I think everyone should be exposed to this kind of talent!! If anyone has been in the market for some custom art that is absolutely stunning, please do yourself a favor and check her out!! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #supportsmallbusinesses #localartist #geodeart #purpleandblack #study #studygram #studyblr #studyaccount #studyinspo #studyspo #studyinspiration #medicine #medlife #medicalschool #doctor #physician #deskspo #motivation #medinspiration #medblr #medstudies #studysmarternotharder #selfcare
Happy hump day! 🐪 Another week in endocrinology has come and gone, as I have a day off tomorrow and a day of bedside ultrasounds on Friday. I’m learning a lot about diabetes, but also Cushing syndrome (too much cortisol - or stress hormone ) pituitary adenomas (benign tumours in your brain that can secrete hormones ), hyperparathyroidism (too much PTH - a hormone secreted by your parathyroids in your neck - which can lead to too much calcium in your blood ), and much more! • How is your week going?
In my last week of urology teaching and then I’m off to placement 🥴
Why did I choose MD? Ultimately there are so many ways to get the training to work in the field of medicine. Since many students out there may be looking for ways to decide what path is right for them, I’ll tell you why I chose mine. The three main ways to be a diagnostician & clinician (provider who diagnoses and provides treatment ) in the US are: 1. Doctor M.D. or D.O. 2. Physician Assistant P.A. 3. Nurse Practitioner N.P. Each of these routes require different entry tests, different lengths of schooling, and different scopes of training. But at the end of the day all three meet with patients, help diagnose their conditions, and work with them to provide medications/lifestyle adjustments/and an improvement in wellbeing. Becoming a doctor requires a 4 year bachelors degree, 4 year medical degree, residency, and optional fellowships to specialize. Why did I choose this route? For me, it boiled down to a few things. 1. I honestly didn’t want a shorter path because if there is information out there I want it. When it comes to seeing my patients I want to say I’ve spent 15 years learning everything I can to save you and I know it still won’t be perfect but I want to know as much as I can. 2. I admire the autonomy of doctors. I can one day decide to work for a hospital, a private practice, a research team, etc. Having an MD gives a lot of flexibility for where I can work and I won’t have to work under the license of someone else. 3. I value innovation. Currently, physicians are in the best position to be involved in research and novel discovery as well as clinical care and this is something I hope to continue in my career. 4. Having a leader personality, I want to continue being a leader in the healthcare team. This is something I value and admire about physicians. Not all doctors have the same personality of course but watching them comfort patients, answer their worries, and guide the conversations is extraordinary to me. There are also numerous benefits to choosing the PA or NP route: cost, length of training, less risk, switching specialties, etc. Choosing which path is right for YOU boils down to what YOU value most! Why did you chose your path? 💕
🇬🇧I spent four weeks in the neurosurgery department so here’s my feedback! This rotation itself wasn’t quite fruitful in the sense that I didn’t learn a lot of new things, Well I did see some signs that I have only read about in books so far like the Romberg sign, Charles bell sign and the cerebellar syndrome. But this rotation and also the fact that I was studying neurology along the way helped in a way: it showed me how interesting the field of neurology is, I really like the clinical reasoning and how at the end everything makes sense, it feels like a puzzle really ! (Hey, @zoeblofeld ❣️ ). And I am seriously starting to consider neurology as a specialty for later ! Neuro surgery though is OFF the list ! Don’t get me wrong it’s interesting, it’s amazing and all that but I don’t see myself spending hours on hours on hours in the OR. Nope not for me ! (Ps: pictured here the new series made by @sketchymedical for those of you preparing step 2 ! ) Q: in which speciality are you rotation right now ? 🇫🇷J'ai passé quatre semaines au service de neurochirurgie alors voici mon feedback! Ce stage en lui-même n'a pas été très formateur dans le sens où je n'ai pas appris beaucoup de nouvelles choses, bon j'ai eu la chance de voir des signes qui jusque là étaient que des notions abstraites pour moi, comme le signe de Romberg, le signe de Charles Bell et un syndrome cérébelleux. Mais le stage et aussi le fait que je faisais mes cours de neuro en même temps ont aidé d'une certaine manière: cela m’a montré à quel point le domaine de la neurologie est intéressant, j'aime vraiment le raisonnement clinique et comment à la fin tout a du sens, cela ressemble vraiment à un puzzle !Et je commence sérieusement à considérer la neurologie comme une spécialité pour plus tard! Neuro chir est cependant HORS de la liste! C’est intéressant, c'est incroyable et tout ça, mais ne me vois pas passer des heures sur des heures au bloc. Non, pas pour moi! Q: vous êtes dans quel stage en ce moment ?
IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS In terms of medical help and treatment, I do very little as a PCT. Despite this, I can feel the difference I make in my patients’ hospital experience ———————————— Yesterday I received a “kudos” from a patient, meaning that my care for a patient was significant enough that they wrote my name down for excellent work! I didn’t do much for her, honestly. She was a fairly independent patient. Perhaps it was the conversations I had, the empathy I showed, and the fact that I did everything in my power to keep her comfortable. I asked her questions on how she was feeling and if there was anything I could do for her. ———————————— This morning, I took the time to look through a patient’s belongings to find his denture glue so that he could eat. He was so relieved when I found it, since nobody bothered helping him find it yesterday and as a result he couldn’t eat! He told me that he felt like I was the only person trying to help him. And all I did was take 2 minutes to look for it. ———————————— I know patients would rather be anywhere else than the hospital. I know that they’re worried for their health. I know that they feel enclosed and trapped in their hospital beds, especially the ones who used to have bodies that could move freely but now hold them back from even being able to feed themselves. That is why I try to provide human interactions and understand patients from their perspective. . When was a time you were recognized for something small? ———————————— #womeninmedicine #stem #premed #premedblogger #premed #premedstudent #premedlife #premedmotivation #studymotivation #studygram #womeninstem #pct #nurse #nursing #medblr #studyblr
The one thing that I’ve changed drastically about myself in the last two years is to be appreciative and grateful for what I have and to stop obsessing over what I want. I can not always rely on situations to work out in my favour, even after giving it my best shot. And being human, I’m bound to face failures and disappointments in the hands of my ambitions. There is no way I can ALWAYS get what I want. Sometimes you can either have this or that, and it usually leaves you regretting the things you couldn’t have instead of focusing on what you actually did get. If you’re working on personal growth- you’re trying to make time for yourself, be more mindful of every thing you do in a way that brings you alive - you’ll somehow be lagging behind in work and you end up feeling guilty about it. Stop that right away. Optimism is a practise. It’s not something you inherit, neither it’s an attribute that you just acquire. It’s a habit, a practise, a daily effort on your part to work on. To choose over. To prioritise. You have to make peace with where you are, what you have and what you’re doing. That’s the first step. You can’t truly be happy with anything at all if you keep pining over what you want NEXT. Be happy now. Be grateful now. Things will come, you’ll hit the milestones but if you don’t learn to take everything in it’s stride and still be at peace with the journey, you’ll never truly be at peace. Because if you haven’t figured it out, happiness is not something you have, it’s something you are.

Твои мечты уходят вслед за потерянной секундой, как и идеи. Ты постоянно медлишь, откладываешь всё на завтра, с уверенностью в том, что это завтра, наконец-таки, наступит. Но нет. В тебе, как и во всех людях, заканчивается этот пыл, такая наивная страсть к чему-либо, что ты даже не пытаешься браться за другое.

Head pounding, eyes sore and hands shaking. I stare at my notes, no different to when I was staring at them 30 minutes ago. My brain is a confused murky fog and nothing seems to sink in. I try reading again from the top. My heart sinks as I glance at the number of deadlines piling up, the lack of ticks on my to-do list and realising I'm days, weeks, no, months behind where I should be. Short panicked gasps and my head is in my hands, tears threatening to spill. Mother walks into the room to check on me. A soothing palm on my back, she whispers softly that there's no point in pushing myself if I'm not feeling well. I shake my head resolutely, determined to get through. She leaves me to it, knowing I inherited my stubbornness from her. She comes back a couple of minutes later with a cup of tea and a bowl of fruits, only to find my head resting against my notes and me in a deep slumber. I wake up slowly, a blanket around my shoulders, pen in hand and glasses askew. My cold cup of tea and my bowl of fruits stand before me and I'm tempted to cry again. I pull myself away from my desk and give my mother a hug. She tells me "Too much of something is bad for you. Trust yourself and trust your body to tell you when things are going wrong." It's a lot more common now for students to speak up about the struggles they face, and it's great. This was a little snippet of my own story, to raise awareness that although we all look like we're studying hard 24/7, it's rarely the case as we struggle behind the scene. Whether it's mental health or chronic illness, some of us are a little stubborn and forge ahead to attain "perfection". After all, if "xyz can do it, so can I! I must get perfect grades!". That sort of mentality brings more harm than good, as I've learnt the hard way. Trust your body's instinct if it needs a day off and don't push yourself to the extremes. Love yourself, your health and your mental wellbeing. Enjoy studying, but learn that you need a break too from time to time. - smallmedicc
Spending this lazy Sunday reviewing amino acids and their structures. Can’t wait for when I’ll be able to dedicate my time to solely prepping for the MCAT and not having to split my time between studying for the RD exam and this. . . Fun fact: half of the RD exam topics are covered on the MCAT so it’s like a two for one right?! . . Pumpkin spice iced coffee: serving of your favorite iced coffee (I used @starbucks unsweetened dark roast ), 2 tbsp pumpkin purée, cinnamon + pumpkin spice + honey. Blend together with a few ice cubes and enjoy ☕️ #thepremed_rd . . . . . . . . . . #mcatprep #mcat #mcatstudying #mcatmotivation #premed #premedlife #premedstudent #premedmotivation #premedicalstudent #premedical #premedicine #premedprobs #premedproblems #medlife #medschool #medstudent #medstudentlife #futurephysician #womeninmedicine #medicalschool #medicalstudent #rd2be #dieteticintern #dieteticinternship #registereddietitian #studyblr #studygram #medblr #studynotes
Mood : 😷🤧🍵 🛌 J’ai grave fait la maligne en pensant que, j’allais passer entre les mailles du filet et ne pas tomber malade ... et le karma a frappé 🤧 Mon plus gros conseil si vous êtes dans le même état de moi, c’est de ne pas trop forcer et prendre le temps de se reposer 🛌 même si vous avez BEAUCOUP de retard. Pourquoi ? Parce que ça risque de traîner, vous allez accumuler la fatigue et mettre du temps à vous remettre sur pied... Du coup j’ai passé toute la journée avec mon thé au miel 🍯 mon paquet de mouchoir, mes Dolipranes et ce CHAT TOUT CHOUPINOUPINET 🐱 [Q] quels sont vos astuces pour travailler en étant malade ? . . . . . . . . . #paces #premedstudent #medstudentslife #catsoﬁnstagram #studygram #studygramcommunity #medblr #studynotes #notestagram #medstudentslife #catsoftheday #ifsi #studynotes
Done with the first rotation of third year! Had the ward test today. It went well! It’s been pretty decent till now. Histories, opds, surgeries etc. Have to say I think this was one of the relatively calmer wards. I think the real storm is coming. That too very very soon. Stay tuned for crazier ward stories and cases! To tell you the truth I am a little scared about the next rotation. It’s known to be harrowing and the physicians in this field have one of the highest rates of burnouts. And we may be going into a shortage in the future too. It is also a speciality I do not like at all 😭😭😭 Any guesses? Here’s another hint:🚺 . . . . #studymotivation #studyaesthetics #studyinspiration #docsofinsta #medwithff #studyblr #studyblrsquad #studyblog #medgram #medblr #medgramsquad #medstudyblr #medstudy #medstudentlife #medgirl #womeninmedicine #medico #medschoollife #medschoolproblems #medschoolbound #bujomonthly #bujoinspo #bujolovers #bujoaddicts #pakistanibulletjournal #studygrampakistan #studygramcommpak
Some of you guessed correctly in the last post. Yep my current rotation is now gynaecology! This is one of those big gun rotations. There’s work, there’s classes, tutorials and even a submission at the end with a ward test! It’s been 4 days and they’ve been.... interesting to say the least. I even had one evening shift. That’s a story for another time 😂. Today we had a sort of tutorial on history presenting. Before it started my friends and I decided to take history of a patient in the ward. She was so sweet! And was happy to answer any and every questions. The funny part is we didn’t have any. Haven’t exactly learnt gynae/obs histories properly so we literally learnt FROM HER! Even specific medical terminology in the local language. Put it all in the back of my head. The thing about this ward is we MUST use a language or vocabulary the patient is COMFORTABLE with. I can’t straight up ask her how her sex life is. Chances are I’m gonna severely offend a patient. I have to be very careful and use vague terms. That’s another amazing thing. All women get what you’re asking! It’s like secret girl code! Not gonna lie I was SUPER scared of this clinic and I really dreaded it but the more time I spend here the more it feels as if.... maybe... could this be? Ah well. I still got all of surgery medicine and paeds left to do. . . . #usmlestep1 #bujoweeklylayout #studymotivation #studyaesthetics #studyinspiration #studysthetics #studyblr #studyblrsquad #studyblog #medgram #medblr #medgramsquad #medstudyblr #medstudy #medstudentlife #medgirl #womeninmedicine #medico #medschoollife #medschoolproblems #medschoolbound #bujomonthly #bujoinspo #bujolovers #bujoaddicts #bujodoodles #studygrampakistan #studygramcommpak

When you see this picture does it make you feel nauseas? Then you should keep reading because this post is for you! Just finished my gynaecology rotation today. And I wanna talk a little about something very close to me: Femininity. [Disclaimer] I associate it with the colour pink. My favourite colour is purple. But my soul is pink. Pink stands for resilience the kind I saw in women who birthed 7 babies endured a hysterectomy and multiple surgeries. Pink stands for headstrong like my patient who had 5 miscarriages and went on without the slightest hint of depression or bereavement and was happy to be on her 8th month with no complications after rectifying her fertility issues. Pink stands for carefree like my patient who had just given birth to a baby girl and hadn’t a care in the world and kept chatting away on her phone or the junior doctors or nurses. Pink stands for iron will like my mom and countless other classmates of hers who became consultants in various medical fields. Pink stood for compassion like me, I help others against my better instincts when I know I won’t be repaid and it’ll hurt me later. Pink represents femininity and that is a huge part about being a woman (not full as many women aren’t typically feminine and that’s okay ). I didn’t like pink growing up. We chose other colours didn’t we? To not seem girly? Misogyny was internalised before we knew what misogyny meant. Pink was a steady rock ready to welcome me back when I turned 18 and realised I couldn’t stay away from who I am anymore. God made me a woman and I am grateful for his gift. It is the biggest blessing ever. Seems like a post fit for 8th March but it’s never too late to be happy with who you are. . PS I know not everyone likes pink but I want you all to despise the colour for the right reasons! And you don’t have to be girly but know WHY you don’t like it, if it looks down on girly women then it’s an issue. Otherwise you do you. And to the men who love pink- you too are welcome! And anyone who is non binary or not cis it goes without saying of course you’re welcome! . . #studymotivation #studyaesthetics #studyinspiration #studysthetics #studyblr #pinklove #femininity
Hello ! Vous êtes plusieurs à avoir réclamé un post « bullet journal » alors en voici ! Vous connaissez le calendex ? J’en ai déjà parlé ici, mais le post commence à dater et donc un petit update s’impose ! En effet je n’utilise pas mon bujo comme agenda (j’utilise mon iPhone pour ça ) et donc je ne l’ouvre pas tous les jours pour planifier ma vie. Mais j’aime dedans avoir une vue d’ensemble de mon année, de ce que j’ai fait, de ce qui est prévu à moyen terme. J’utilise donc un calendex sur 6 mois, qui permet de noter les rendez vous, les examens, les sorties etc ! C’est super sympa, ça va assez vite à faire à force, et c’est parti pour 6 mois ! J’ai un petit code couleur sur le haut, et pour le coup c’est assez visuel ! Est ce que ça vous convainc d’essayer ? PS: Saurez vous démasquer l’énorme erreur sur cette photo? ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #medecine #paceslife #anatomy #studygramcommunity #notetaking #nurselife #medecinelife #medicalstudent #externat #anatomydrawing #medblr #studentlife #bujofr #bulletjournalfr #bujoinspo #calendex
Spending the next week in Charlotte until I head off to one last summer program for medical students. Any guesses for which state I’ll be going to? 👀 • I also wanted to share this phone case by @rotationcases that helped me out a lot. There are so many details to remember with psychiatry, but having this at the tip of my fingers (literally 😂 ) was such a valuable resource! Check out their website for other specialty specific iPhone cases for your clinical rotations. Use the code fro20off for 💰 off your purchase! #ad
Are you taking the necessary steps to reach your goals? Or do you set your goals but never get any closer? This week I set my goal to working out as often as possible. I set it and made it happen. I moved around my schedule to ensure I was carving out time for the gym. Knowing it would be tough to wake up early and work out alone, I made sure my friends kept me accountable. I even built a workout plan, so that when I went to the gym I had a routine to automatically default to. It’s easy to set goals. But are you actually working to make them happen? What steps are you taking to get closer to your goals?
