100 day studying challenge : 4/100
Listening to music after a heavy studying session is a fun way to recharge in my experience. Also- power naps <3

cd | night study 🌃 feels good to do this again!! Good night, tumblr.
Why do I let myself get excited about things. Of course it wasn’t actually going to happen.
My director opened a new position for a manger of my department. She is over all areas of case management this would be under her. A coworker said I should go for it. I didn’t think so but then my director asked if I saw the listing and also said I should think about it.
As I did I got into the idea of how I could use the job to improve my department. So I figured at least get more info and emailed her a few days later with some questions. Got no response.
This morning she was texting me about unrelated things so I asked if she’d gotten the email (she gets so many sometimes they get overlooked) and said no rush just didn’t want her to think I wasn’t interested. She said she got it but has been discussing with corporate hiring a non licensed person for the position instead.
I know that has nothing to do with me and everything to do with our for profit health care system but still makes me feel pretty worthless at the moment. Gonna be awesome when they hire someone with no healthcare knowledge and then expect me and my coworkers to train them.
Really wish shit like this would make me stop caring enough to do not go out of my way to do extra at work but I know it won’t. I can’t just let shit be half assed. At least not professionally.

i was incredibly productive from weekend to tuesday morning — and then my migraine hit and i’m now a bum. i see other med students in IG just kicking the life out of med and being stellar and here i am lying on bed just enjoying my ✨ potato moment ✨
It’s been so long since I posted my own photos! I finished my med school finals in November and am now a few months into my final year - my intern year. Currently on an anaesthesia elective!
me after studying for 5 seconds: that’s it. i— i can’t do this anymore
Today we drained an arachnoid cyst in the OR, and it was so beautiful. It’s like a swimming pool in the brain, and at the bottom we could see the internal carotid, the MCA, the optic nerve. Truly amazing.

just rambling here, but i thought i'd be ready for usmle step 2 by may, but for better or for worse i got an amboss membership and instead of doing uworld cards i finished amboss in like 2.5 months.
so the good news is that yeah i got through that question bank, but the bad news is that if i wanted to do 40 uworld questions a day 6 days a week i'd still need 12 weeks to get it done so... yeah that's not going to happen. i should be ready by the end of my internship, but i really wanted to have done more by now :(
oh well, alhamdulillah

Me: So, how's your rotation?
Him: It literally burned down.
Me: *remembering he's having a rotating at that hospital ward that just burned to the ground*
Me: Oh right...
Me: So... How is it?
*for the record, this one time, the fire wasn't in our hospital

This cute instagram filter is obviously not cute enough since you can see the giant pimple I've had for a week.

Coming home to nostalgia and childhood friends, entering a new year and trying to find beauty in small things.
A gentle reminder to all my fellow studyblrs❤️
cd | Do you play games? 👾 If not, what are your hobbies?
When I was young, I wasn’t really into games because I found them boring. I was more of a bookish kid — you’ll see me in a corner, reading, contented, not a care in the world. And that didn’t change even in college.
When I started medicine though, there is no time to read. Our “free time” is dedicated to doing endless manuals (w/c is really obsolete & useless imo). So I found a new hobby: playing games. Two years ago, it was mobile legends. Just last night, I downloaded a bunch of iPad games that does not require much thinking and so far, I am really enjoying Ragnarok!! It’s easy to play and cute!
There isn’t much to do this week so I’ll just finish all the manuals in microbio, watch the last episode of OBS, and play Ragnarok. 🥳🪄🗡
