This floral top!

Its only after I saw the picture below that I realized how I royally mispaired (if that’s even a word) my floral top and the ankle pant.


May be I should have worn regular length pants?

May be I should have worn heels?

More accessories?

Can some fashion savvy soul help me out here?

Floral top: Ann Taylor || Ankle pant: Banana Republic || Flats: Walmart (Oh yes! lol)




This white skirt!

This floral white skirt from Ann Taylor is a big experiment on my end because I am always scared of wearing white pants or skirts. This is my first one EVER! (That’s right!)

I decided to pair it with a black top (and a green one later) but I am not sure if it does justice to the outfit. Please scroll below and give me some suggestions as to how I can pair it/wear it better.






Just some stats: I’m 5.4 i height and 94 lbs.






Hanging in..

Has time stopped or rrea…ll…y slowed down?

It’s so hard for me to believe that it has only been two months since I started my residency. I was having this discussion with my co-worker and we agreed that it feels like we have been here for over 6 months or something! Since joining the program we have been given 3 assignments so far (that contain N number of modules that we have no time to complete) and we also answered a 8 hours long in-training exam that we were so not prepared for!

Being the master procrastinator that I am is not helping at all while I am under this huge pile of To-Do list. And although I am happy that I have been able to get myself to exercise every other week and eat healthy, every now and then I find myself holding a Pepsi can (not even diet Pepsi) or a delicious cheesy piece of pizza. Temptations!

My goal for the month is to be more organized while surviving over 80 hours/week inpatient rotations. I do have a schedule in place but the mystery is – Will. I. Be. Able. To. Stick. To. It!




Lonely nights

It has finally hit me. In this moment. Right here – I am homesick.

I miss my sugarplum, my family, my friends. Over one month in the ICU seeing people take their last breath, seeing some slowing succumb, seeing some get so close to the end and make it through to see another day – I am already waiting for the 3 years of my medical residency to end.

Isn’t it human nature to not be happy with what you have, to always want something more, something better? I have to remind myself how much I have struggled to get this far. I hope things get better for me with time.


The NRMP Gamble


Away I have been for I had to detach,
I was taken hostage by the “residency match”.
Been a while since I came here to ramble
as NRMP played my life’s ultimate gamble.

I rechecked and reviewed, re-upload and refresh.
did I do this right? Or make a mess!?
Oh the fear, the days weren’t sunny,
as I spent thousands on application money.

Then it’s interview season – I am braved,
My resume is long and my LORs waived.
With holes in my shoes and a MTB in my shelf,
Practice and practice…”so..tell me about yourself”

The travel halts, we hold our breath,
12th of March is now what we dread.
I wait exhausted, almost crashed,
Until lo and behold! “Congratulations! You have matched!”

Behind are the struggles, its time for celebration,
Mid-June, they said, we begin orientation.
We pack our bags, may be brush up some basic,
and like the last journey, hope this too will be EPIC! (pun intended)

The Sacred Place

“ [A sacred place] is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen…”
