Someday is Today

After spending hours trimming my wardrobe for an upcoming move, I pulled into my parents’ driveway at four o’ clock in the morning (night shift probs). Due to a constantly messed up sleep schedule, I decided to try my luck in my parents’ DVR. Man, I hit the jackpot. In 2004 A Cinderella Story was […]

Smoky Mountains National Park

Last week I moved to Georgia, and lucky for me, my wonderful parents came down and helped me get situated. Naturally, the day after moving, we all thought it was a great idea to pack up and head to the closest national park. It was myself, my Dad, my Mom, and my Harper (5 year […]

Grenadian Hospital Visits

Term 5, is a unique term. After the first five weeks, there are no more SGU written exams, and the majority of your grades come from BSCE and CBSE, which are both standardized NBME tests. This is also the only term, where SGU takes its students to the hospitals for “clinicals.” Term 5 students go […]

Weekend Trip to Carriacou

After finishing up our last SGU written test in February, a group of us (and many more groups) decided to head to Carriacou to stay the night. With the help of my friend Zena, we all bought our ferry tickets beforehand. I definitely recommend doing that, because the line on the morning we left (Saturday) […]

Term 5 Medical School @ SGU

In the past, Term 5 used to consist of pharmacology and pathophysiology with separate tests, as well as CBSE and BSCE. We were the first term to start covering pharm in term 4, so our term 5 was going to be different. In the first 5 weeks, we covered the remaining micro, pathology, and pharm, […]

Term 4 Medical School @ SGU

The dreaded term 4. The weed out term. The most intense/hardest term. Heading into term four, I felt super intimidated. I had only heard horror stories, about the workload, labs, material, professors, exams, etc. All any upper termer could say was that it was the most difficult term. We had just finished term three and […]

Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park

From Banff National Park, we headed to Wyoming to Yellowstone National Park. If you ask google maps how far away Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park are, it will tell you they are a short 10 minute drive apart. This is true only if you are at South entrance, which is close to the North […]

Banff National Park — Waterton National Park

After camping at Glacier National Park for two days, we headed north to Canada for the first time!! We had allotted for two days at Canada, and if I got to go there again, I am easily going to spend 10-14 days there. Banff is probably Canada’s most well-known national park. However, they also have […]

Term 3 — SGU Medical School

Term 3 lasts 6 weeks and requires you to either stay six weeks later (if you start your first term in January) or start six weeks earlier (if you start your first term in August). I started in August of 2017, so we started July 2nd, six weeks before term one, two, and five would […]

Term 2 — Medical School at SGU

After 3-4 weeks of winter break, term 2 started up with full speed ahead. Personally, I didn’t think term two was going to be as hard as term one, because I knew what to expect and I knew I could do this. With that being said, it was definitely harder for me. I told myself […]

Levera National Park – Leatherback Turtles and Welcome Stone

About halfway through my second semester of medicine, a group of term two students and myself, took a much needed break from studying to go to Levera National Park in Grenada. St. Georges University was about two hours from Levera National Park! My taxi driver and friend, Ray, took us to the other end of […]
