Things I Heard in Medical School: Volume 20

As some of us finish off our last lab for Term 5 (I know half of y’all didn’t come — I’m judging you), I wanted to gift you all with the last installment of Things I Heard in Medical School! It was a fun run, this series. Here’s to hoping that clinical years has just as much nonsense as these 2.5 years of basic sciences did! So, until next time, did I catch you saying something ridiculous? Hope you enjoy!

Rocky Mountain Road Trip Part 1 – #brownfamdoesDenver

Last summer my parents and I visited Denver, Colorado for a Sleep Medicine meeting (yes, that is a thing) . While it was pretty dope (punny, I know) to walk around the city, we wanted to see the scenic aspect of this lovely state. So we booked a whole day bus tour and set off on our Rocky Mountain Adventure! All photos are unedited (#nofilter) and were taken on a Nikon D5200. Here’s part one of our trip — to see more photos from the trip, or of my photography in general, follow my photography Instagram!¬†Part two coming soon! Continue reading

An open letter to myself: Slow down and breathe.

I’m a second-year medical student at St. George’s University in Grenada. If you are also a medical student or in a similar, grueling field, you can probably relate.

If you know me, you know I hate crying and hate being weak. Well, today will be that exception. Today, I need to open up so I can move on. Feel free to share this post with anyone who needs a reality check or just needs some reassurance that this too shall pass. Continue reading
