Always so happy to spend time with my bestie @jreedknowswuddup ! ❤ EKK! Make sure to check out this lady's feed and see all the killer work she's been making at @iusceramics during her #postbac ! ❤😍❤ #clayladiez#mimosas#nombombs#claybae
And just like that, we’re finished. It seems like years ago that school was beginning, that I was watching the eclipse amongst physicists and astronomers and feeling so out of place and yet so at home. It feels like years ago in the best possible way, like I’m doing the thing that I was always meant to do, like this was 30 years in the making and now I’m here and everything is right. That’s the thing about medicine—everything you learned in your past life, all the soft skills you acquired, all the ways of thinking and understanding and approaching the world, will be used. It’s true for healing paths of all kinds. We were made to help one another, as artists or musicians or nurses or midwifes or cooks or nannies or teachers or . . . This is my path to helping—yours may be different, but this is our world and we’re all in it together. ✨ • 📷: @kestrelshop
This week (/ month / what day is it?!) has been such a blur. Finals require a new level of concentration—I feel like we’ve been testing forever, for weeks and weeks without a break, even though it’s only been ten days. Yesterday (on a Saturday!) was number 4/5 and tomorrow is the last one. Meanwhile T has been holding down the fort, making sure I have ample cookies and clean clothes and tea. 🙏🏻 •
One more. Just one more. And then I exchange these books for MCAT studies and wedding plans! ✨ • 📷: @the.bullet.journey
Our first official snow today and I learned THE COOLEST THING ABOUT SNOW OMG IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. @radiolab tells it better, so jump over there if you don’t want a spoiler. Here’s my rather non-scientific explanation. ✨ •
First, know that water isn’t great at freezing all by itself. It needs another substance (a dust particle or microbe or larger thing) to get it in freeze formation. That’s why flash freezing happens. ❄️ •
Now, there are these little bacteria that live in plants. When it’s winter and they’re hungry, they spit up a protein that makes water get into this freeze formation. The frozen water cuts the plant open so that the bacteria can eat the insides. 🌿 •
All of a sudden, a winter wind picks up. It sweeps the bacteria into the air, high up into the atmosphere. This is a problem—it wants to get down, but it’s too light to fall on its own so it’s stuck in the clouds. 🌬 •
What does it do? It spits the same protein out and causes the water around it to freeze and fall to the earth. And THAT IS SNOW. THAT IS SNOW. Bacteria spit vehicles falling to the ground. Each flake (probably) has a bacteria inside it. WHAT?! 🌨 •
The entire human race: “let’s use snow as a metaphor for absolute purity!” Science: “nah, that’s just bacteria spit cars.” WHAT?! #scienceisawesome 🔬 📷: @ansusan_
Thank you to the wonderful students of Cohorts 11 & G, who gathered to celebrate their great accomplishments in the program over the past 1-2 years. We are incredibly lucky and proud that they have done so as members of our community.

Bugs! Come see some pots I made. They’re installed on the first floor lobby of the Visual Arts Complex.
Our Christmas tree stands naked in the corner as it has for ten days and counting. Perhaps it gets lights tomorrow—perhaps. This is life now, filled to the brim with goodness and joy in any season, decked halls or no. ✨ 📷: @catesthill

“The enormity of the moral mission of medicine lent my early days of med school a severe gravity. The first day, before we got to the cadavers, was CPR training, my second time doing it. The first time, back in college, had been farcical, unserious, everyone laughing: the terribly acted videos and limbless plastic mannequins couldn’t have been more artificial. But now the lurking possibility that we would have to employ these skills animated everything. As I repeatedly slammed my palm into the chest of a tiny plastic child, I couldn’t help but hear, along with my fellow students’ jokes, real ribs cracking.” — Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air ✨ •
I’ve been CPR certified a handful of times, but today felt real. Today felt like people were dying in front of us, and if we failed to administer compressions 2.4 inches deep at 100-120 per minute we would let them. Today felt like someday we’ll be doctors and we’ll save patients and we’ll lose patients and every single thing we learn might make all the difference someday. But the simulation lab instructor was also playing “Staying Alive” on his phone... and so the whole thing felt very much like that scene from The Office 🙈
