End of the Road

I haven’t updated this blog in ages; almost an entire year has passed since I have sat down to write anything personal. The main reason for this is that I quit my postbac program. Quitting the program was a decision I made after having my sweet baby because I wasn’t comfortable with the caregiver I […]

Pregnant & Premed: The Third Trimester

My due date is coming up in just about two weeks which means our world will be turned upside down! We’re probably not ready, but we’re definitely getting excited. I’ve been quite fortunate to have an uneventful pregnancy thus far. Here is how my third trimester went. Physically As the semester progressed I slowly became […]

The Struggle Continues

Just when I thought I got into the groove of studying and doing amazingly well in my postbac I got hit by a double whammy of extreme fatigue from the third trimester and moving during exam week. I suppose that of the 12 types of procrastinators you could say that I am “the napper.” Also […]

Poblano Chicken Curry

I have finally found a few cooking blogs that feature routinely delicious Indian dishes. Last week, I was inspired to make this Andhra Pepper Chicken recipe only to arrive at the store and find absolutely no suitably spicy peppers in the grocery store. Desperation lead to innovation and I tweaked Mareena’s recipe to make my […]

Second Chance

                                            The postbac started about a month and a half ago now, which feels like a long time ago and not that long ago at the same time. I started a study group at […]

The First Week

I started my postbac program on August 23rd! So far I’ve had a relatively smooth journey. Class has been surprisingly manageable. After screwing up undergrad I’m taking steps to make sure I don’t make mistakes this time. I’ve said it many times before, but this postbac is my last hope at medical school. Doing a […]

Pregnant & Premed: The Second Trimester

The pregnancy is passing very quickly which means school is going to start and the baby will be here soon! Physically: Although I’ve only gained 2-3 pounds, I haven’t been able to fit into my pants since the beginning of the second trimester. I did go out and buy a pant size larger which was […]

18 days

I cannot believe that in a little more than two weeks I will take my first graduate-level science class. I am sure if I wasn’t heading into a postbac program to remediate poor academic performance I would be feeling more optimistic and excited. But then again I have a smart friend who is starting medical […]
