A Refreshing Drink

My sister, brother-in-law, and I tried out some (really photogenic) Thai iced tea at a local fusion Asian restaurant in our hometown pre-quarantine times. It’s hard to find a Thai iced tea that has the perfect blend of flavors without being overwhelmingly sweet or powdery. This one did the trick! Next task on my to-do…

A Year Later

It’s been a little more than a year since my last post on this blog, but with a new year comes new resolutions! I’ve been trying to share more of my photography on Instagram (which markets itself as a quicker and more spontaneous alternative to blogging but I’m not really sure how true that is…)…

Study Essentials

Essentials for medical school: a planner, coffee or tea, my iPad pro (and not featured: Apple Pencil), and my handy-dandy MacBook Pro! I can’t imagine getting through half of my first year without these things within arm’s reach at all times.

In the Shadows

Took this photo as the sun was setting a few weeks ago in St. Petersburg, FL. Something about the way these buildings – almost complete opposites – stood next to each other caught my eye. Happy Sunday! x CTM CTM Instagram


Wishing you all a very happy, healthy, and incredible New Year! Happy 2018 🙂
