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

Was that harsh? I’m writing this way past my bed time…. any-who… on with the commentary! Here is Volume 5 of Front Row Views! Did I call you out this week? Let me know!

Front Row Views: Volume 4

Even though I don’t sit very front and center anymore (don’t worry mom, I’m still near the front), I still manage to observe bizarre things all over the classroom. If you know me, my eyes are constantly rolling, wishing I could blurt out something rude and sarcastic, but alas, I must pay attention in lecture. Fear not — I have saved them for you in Volume 4 of Front Row Views! Continue reading
