As I sit (or lay, lol) here studying my brains out, questioning my intellectuality, terrified of exam day, & sometimes wishing it was my match day a few weeks ago, it hit me; this struggle is not something that I HAVE to go through, it’s something I GET to go through. All of us studying for boards (or MCAT for my premeds) are so LUCKY to get this opportunity. Look how far we have already come! The stress, anxiety, insecurity, frustration scarcely mixed with a few victories here and there are all part of this process and we must take a step back to realize how much of a privilege it is to get to take boards. We graduated high school, graduated college, survived first year med school, and basically completed 2nd year to get to this point. Yes, it’s probably the worst part of our education, but even our worst part is a privilege. So if UWorld is killing your self esteem and you are stressed out of your mind, just take a moment to be proud of how far you’ve come already & how lucky you are to be at this point. You GET to take this exam to follow your dreams. How many people can say that? Now go do tons of practice questions, study your heart out, and get ready to kill this exam. Yours truly, May 💙. #step1#level1#yougotthis#youarenotalone
I’ve been in the midst of one of the worst reading/bookstagram slumps I’ve ever had. Basically haven’t picked up a book in the past two/three weeks, and haven’t posted here in about as long, BUT I think I’m finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I stopped by my local Barnes & Noble and uh did a lil shopping... I think I’m gonna start with NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA since I’ve been feeling like I need something light and breezy to get me back into the swing of things. ▫️ Books from my haul: 🔹 NEXT YEAR IN HAVANA by Chanel Cleeton 🔹 MILKMAN by Anna Burns 🔹 THE BOLD WORLD: A MEMOIR OF FAMILY AND TRANSFORMATION by Jodie Patterson 🔹 SISSY: A COMING-OF-GENDER STORY by Jacob Tobia 🔹 REAL QUEER AMERICA: LGBT STORIES FROM RED STATES by Samantha Allen 🔹 QUEENIE by Candice Corty-Williams ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #bitchisback#readingslump#bookhaul#barnesandnoble#newbooks#diversebooks#readmorewomen#bookstagrammer#imback#reading#readersofinstagram#amreading#womenofcolor#diversevoices#thestruggle
What to eat for breakfast has become a point of disagreement in our home. I want them to eat healthy and have stuff like oatmeal and eggs. They always want sugary cold cereal. So we were forced to come up with a schedule of what we eat on certain days to avoid starting off the morning with the constant complaining. Here is a shot of "Weggsnesday." My Dad actually coined the term and it was his tradition to make eggs for us mid-week when we were growing up. Who knows how long the routine will stick with these two but I'm committed to enjoying one less argument in the morning for the time being. #momlife#thestruggle
Perspective means everything. Everything is FOR you. Every pain, woe, disaster, and disappointment can be leveraged to grow and expand. I am using the passing of my perfect, amazing dog to strip away a layer of excuses, my favorite being I can’t make money while depressed. And yet, I can and am. I launched a class for newbie business gals. I love on my horse and man even more. Struggle is an opportunity to prioritize and focus on quality. Hugs and encouragement to you if you are going through it. Use it to make your life extraordinary. #keepgoing#thestruggle#dreams#rainbowbridge#entrepreneurs#grit
When your social media homies become your reality homies. -- We’ve talked about medicine, life, and lifting a bunch on social media. But it was awesome to finally meet up with someone from this community I’ve been blessed to be part of. It reminded me the value of trading stories, sharing experiences, and being able to relate to each other’s struggle. -- If you aren’t already, go follow my dude @christian_alexvnder and wish him the best through his bored prep (see what I did there 😉). -- We’re thinking of planning an OC meet up, anyone interested?

Wow guys this is crazy!! I’ve been struggling with adult acne for a while now. As a teenager I use to get zits mostly along my hair line and the side of my nose and then that stopped and it all came back after having kids and now get them on my cheeks. 😩😩😩😩 Please tell me I’m not the only one!! . At the beginning of the year I started working on being consistent with my skin regimen and what a difference!!!. I still get breakouts but I feel like I have a better handle on it. I’ve recently added 100% pure Argan oil to my regimen, so I’m excited to see if that helps. . Yes my skin issues make me a little uncomfortable but I am confident that it’s going to continue to get better because I’m doing my part and I’m working on it everyday. . . . . #adultacne#beforeandafter#herbalifeskin#herbalifeclearify#thestruggle#allnatural#nakedface#journeytoclearskin

STORY TIME: Last semester, I had music. I made two mistakes last semester with that. The first one was not joining band, but last month I joined(thank god). The second was not thinking more about what would happen if I dated my ex boyfriend, now best guy friend, who we’re gonna call Joe. So, a friend of mine who were gonna call Jen, really like talking before class. Jen also REALLY liked grabbing a mallets, sometimes both, and hitting the vibes or xylophone, even tho she’s on trombone. One day, she was using the hard mallets on the xylophone, and I was like okay, whatever, she always does this. THEN SHE HITS THE VIBES WITH THE HARD MALLETS VERY AGGRESSIVELY. I don’t think I’ve ever been so triggered in my life, and I’ve only been playing mallets, or percussion in general, since September(that’s another story time). Joe was there, so he stopped Jen, and I took the mallets. I don’t remember is she came into my section again😂😂 Kinda happy Joe is was there, even tho he plays clarinet in band and class. He looks scarier then he really is, and Jen doesn’t really know him that well. • • QOTD: What’s the most triggering thing anyone has said and/or done with your instrument? -mallets.in.choir • • • • #bandmemes#relatable#bandkids#thestruggle#clarinets#clarinetmemes#musickids#onlybandkidsgetit#clarinetstruggles#music#marchingband#instrumentmemes#trumpet#percussion#percussionmemes#malletspercussion#malletpercussionmemes#malletpercussionstruggles#doitfortheband#choir#choirmemes
