Melancholia and Epiphanies

Forgive my neglect of this wonderful oasis , I haven't exactly had the easiest past few weeks 😦  I had a "falling out" with a former high school friend of mine. I actually wouldn't term it a falling out .It was more like a wave of negative passive aggressive energy that I absorbed and took [...]

Native Optimism and Expectations 🌹

I am still trying to process the fact that in five days I will be sitting in a lecture hall. . . learning and using my brain matter constructively 😲😲😲 This "holiday" was incredibly short , thirty days , but much needed.  I spent most of it sleeping , watching movies , series , listening to [...]

Y’er a wizard Lily ⚡⚡

I am not of this muggle world. I am a wizard. Now if my letter from Hogwarts could find its way to me before I graduate from med school, that would be splendid  👌 I have successfully convinced my younger brethren to indulge in the epicness of the Harry Potter world . I employed passive aggressive tactics such [...]
