A Year Ago

In a few days, it’ll be a year since I graduated from a place I have come to call my second home ūüíô — a place where I met¬†amazing people, learned from world-class professors, and finally solidified my career ambitions. Since wearing that cap and gown, listening to the inspiring speakers at my commencement, and…

Tradition

Throwback to my¬†daily routine of walking to class every morning at 8 a.m. // Some¬†of the (many) things I’ve missed since graduation are¬†going to class, taking notes, absorbing¬†an insane amount of information at a fast pace, and organizing¬†meetings and study dates with friends at coffee shops. With two months left¬†of my gap year before medical…

Skyscrapers

Exploring the world has long been on my bucket list, an item that has been slowly climbing its way up to the top as I scroll through beautiful images of cities, star-filled skies, and rooftops online. Recently, I’ve been fortunate to travel a little bit throughout the country — I took this photo in downtown…

Adventure

“New Year, New Me” — a phrase that has infiltrated social media¬†and millennials’ conversations alike. From the Yellowstone trip our family made a few years back, this¬†photo is my favorite. Every time I look at it, I can’t help but feel optimistic, refreshed, and reflective. There are so many unknowns in life and we can’t…

La La Land

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to visit a friend in Miami for a day — one that we filled with Cuban food, ice cream, catching up, and walking through the Wynwood District (a.k.a. the hipster/artsy part of Miami). While we were looking for an affordable lunch spot, we passed a plant shop…

Brass Bridges

Walking through Crescent River Park in New Orleans, I was surprised at the stark contrast between the serene riverside and the music-filled, lively streets of the French Quarter. After spending some time absorbing the happenings of Royal and Bourbon Street, the calm area beyond this bridge was much appreciated.

Pier

The week of¬†my graduation, some friends and I went to the Outer Banks. We had a lot planned for the three days we were there, but we decided to take one (very sunny) morning to walk on the beach. It took about an hour just to walk a few miles back and forth on the…

From the Met

  In November, my sister¬†was determined to show me as much of New York City as she could in the three days that she was off from work. We roamed around Manhattan, absorbing the fast-paced life and assortment of coffee and restaurant¬†options. One of those days was dedicated to The Metropolitan Museum of Art (better…
