Tenacity of purpose.

I never liked physics, I found it difficult and was barely squeaking by, but I pushed on through and at the end of the semester my physics teacher gave me my final back and told me this, I have a tenacity of purpose. Beautiful words. Thank you, Mr. Burns. I will never forget it. I... Continue Reading →


Banana muffins (vegan)

I love shopping at Walmart when they stock up the discounted section. I scored myself two bags of snowpeas $1, two chayote squash (South Indian molagutal recipe for another day) and mint $1, two dragonfruit $1, 50% off coconut yogurt $2 and a huge bag of 10 very ripe bananas for ONE BUCK. That's right! My eyes... Continue Reading →

Had my first day of anesthesiology. Very fun! Many epidurals today, learned a lot! Wonderful teacher! Practice intubating with a manikin, looking forward to doing some real ones soon. Long day so all I wanted to do was come back and make something quick....and used this recipe and dumped everything into a pot! One pot.... Continue Reading →

I learn so much, not only about medicine, but also patient care that I hope to carry forward in my own medical career. Patients really appreciate: callbacks of labs/results that are negative too! It gives them a sense of relief.... Continue Reading →

This and that…

Random thoughts... I love the unsweetened coconut flakes I bought at Walmart. I am already starting to think about tomorrow morning's breakfast oatmeal....with some coconut! Right after work, I come home and relax with strawberry-banana-soy milk smoothies, three ingredients. So simple and so so good! Totally worth buying frozen strawberries. I have been watching Downton... Continue Reading →
