Thoughts on Birthdays…

Hey everyone,

I hope September has been treating you well… or decently.

I just wanted to hop on to talk about something that, around this time of year, is inevitable. My birthday. My birthday is coming up and all I really want is to stay home all day in my bed. But… that’s not going to happen because I’ve got a full day of class and even a mock exam. Alas, that’s not what I want to talk about… Continue reading


I’m at a loss for words…

Have you ever had someone look at you and tell you that you would not be capable of doing something? Well… I’m sure it’s happened to me before but today’s event just left me at a loss for words. Emotionally – not so lost there. Some people are so rude and there’s never an indication or justification for something like that. What was said to me today completely ruined a perfectly decent day and seven hours later, I’m still seething over it.

Dental School Tales: First Patient Experience

Hi everyone!

I’m back! It’s only been two days since my last post, so I’m sure many of you are surprised to see/hear/read from me again so soon! Haha

I’m sitting here in my apartment alone and was reflecting back on my day, as I do, and realized that the events of the day lent themselves perfectly into a blog post. Today marked my first day seeing a patient in the school clinical setting!! Ahh! Super exciting! Let me tell you how it went!

An Amateur Reviews: Crazy Rich Asians

Welcome back, friends! I’ll write a post later about my intentions with this blog, but right now, I just want to touch on a HOT TOPIC right now that is taking the Asian-American community (and other communities, let’s be real here) by storm: CRAZY RICH ASIANS!!

I just had the opportunity (read: felt well enough after surgery) to go see Crazy Rich Asians, finally, and it was SO worth the wait. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty here and get reviewing!

*Reading ahead may result in spoilers, so if you don’t want to spoil any part of the movie for yourself, I would suggest not reading anymore!*

Life can be messy…

Hi everyone!

Well… three months later I find myself back on here, writing to you all again. Things have been crazy these past three months and a lot has changed. And, I find myself revisiting change, once again. I would apologize for being so MIA, but sometimes there is absolutely no way of knowing what is going to happen. The best intentions can sometimes go awry.

Anyway, here’s a quick recap of what has happened in the past three months:

When we last spoke, it was May 27th, 2018. I talked about being an outgoing, social introvert. Since then, I’ve had plenty drama happen in my life driving me to spend little time in my own apartment, thereby, not having a safe space away from school; I went through finals and midterms, you know, the normal school things; had what would usually be a three-hour flight become a whole 12+ hour travel day along with lost luggage; a realization that “me time” is more than just being by myself in my little corner; and I had surgery. No worries, I’ll break all of this down, simply to get it off my chest and catch you all up, such that moving forward, I’ll keep you up-to-date on most things in my life.

I’m an introvert, I swear…

Everyone is obsessed with their Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or MBTI, and rightfully so. Now, I don’t know everything there is to know about MBTI, but I do have an interest in it – it gives the user a way to look within and see how they perceive and process the world around them and make decisions. People’s personalities are always so interesting to me and it is so much fun to observe and try to figure out what a person is, personality-wise.  Continue reading

Terra Bella – My First Rural Dental Experience: A Reflection

Hello everyone,

I know that I’m pretty bad at keeping up with the blog, but sometimes the motivation isn’t there or life gets really busy or it feels like there is nothing to write about. Anyway… I’m here to talk about an amazing experience that I had this past weekend, albeit quite busy with everything else going on. Continue reading
