Life goes on . . .

It is I , the owner of this seemingly abandoned blog 🙂 It has been two three months since my last post and the only explanation that I have to excuse my hiatus is simply . . . Life.😅 Medical School Update Yes , I'm still in medical school😅. To put my first semester into perspective and [...]

Ataraxia & Adulthood

I must have jinxed myself when I proclaimed February to be the best month of the year because shortly after that followed one of the most harrowing months that I have ever experienced ! March was , simply put, hellish. I was on my Internal Medicine rotation and looking back on it , I am not entirely [...]

Third Time’s A Charm !

Is it too early to crown a "best month of the year" ? February has exceeded my expectations thus far and it has not even reached its conclusion yet. Let me commence with a Lily Update because a great deal has occurred during this month 🙂 I have brand new spectacles and contacts . My vision had deteriorated since the last time I went to the optometrist [...]

New Me ?

The first week of the year is probably the most motivated one can be all year. One begins with incredible determination to achieve their goals and work tirelessly only to burn out by January the 6th because then they discover that REALISM is an integral component of being an "Optimistic Realist" .  My rude , incredibly rude, [...]

A Year In Review : 2016

The Internet has hailed it one of the worst years in existence and I have some compelling examples from my experience this year to substantiate that claim.  However , the tale of 2016 has not been entirely filled with deep melancholy , unending sadness and pain. Through the forest of despair , ephemeral rays of [...]

Early Clinical Rotations

It was both humbling and horrifying to see the miracle of life on display every 30 minutes of everyday for two weeks😱😨

The Adventures of TinderLily : Part 3

The Good , the Bad and horribly unsettling , not just ugly, guys you meet on Tinder 😝😅😘

The Adventures of TinderLily: Part 2

Tinder Match (TM): I actually don't like Harry Potter , LOTR , Game of Thrones and . . . Lily (walking out with the breadsticks) : Sorry I seem to have wasted my time here.

The Adventures of TinderLily : Part 1

Lily ( Looks into the distance): "It all started with a dare . . ." My friend who "loves me dearly" and knows me better than most thought it prudent to dare me to do something I had never done before knowing full well the extent of my ridiculous pride. She used her intimate and [...]

At Times Inexplicably Small

Current Rotation : Paediatrics Salutations !I thought I'd do a Lily Update  to catch you up, blog reader, with my awkward existence and what I have been making of it for the past month. As this is primarily a blog of feels , do prepare yourself for lots of those 😛 ❤ 🙂 On Hospital [...]

Looking for Lily 🔎

I offer my most humble apology to any individual who yearned for real answers for their very important and incredibly serious questions but were redirected to my blog of feels instead. Where in the world is Lily ?  I'm on my Obstetrics and Gynaecology rotation ! I'm doing cool things like delivering babies and assisting in [...]

Sutures and Resuscitations 😎

This past month has been the best month I've spent in medical school yet🙌 I have become completely enamored with surgery .I loved everything in surgery😍. I sometimes needed to whisper "Calm down Lily" when the excitement threatened to bubble over 🙈 ! I was really lucky to be placed with my clinical partner in a [...]

Everything and More !

Surgery is everything I expected it to be and more 🙂 ❤ . It's day 2 and I am already head over heels in love #surgeryisbae. My feet are killing me , I have walked at least 20 kilometers between today and yesterday  but I am still so happy and so excited ! My apologies [...]

My First Time . . . 😉

Kindly wrench your head from the gutter in which it is presently residing. If you were reading this in the hopes of unearthing cringe-worthy and embarrassing moments of adolescent discovery then I should let you know that this is not that type of post! 😜 My First Time: Clinic Edition💉 The first time I took a [...]

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 [...]
