Happy Tuesday everyone! It's been so rainy and cloudy in Dallas, I could really go for a rooftop cucumber refresher to remind me of sunnier summer days. Although I suppose I can't complain that it's been less than 80º this past week! Tune in tomorrow for #WhereIWishIWasWednesday to find out this perfect summer spot!
Happy Friday! I woke up thinking it was Saturday already, but gotta get through this night call first 👎🏻 Did y’all catch my Moroccan guide featuring our stay at @virginlimitededition #KasbahTamadot ? It was truly a dream - we can’t wait to check out their other resorts all over the world ✈️
I know I’m not the only one, but I love taking photos of doors when I travel. Every city has unique features to their entrances - whether it’s the color scheme, the door frame, or just the combinations of metals and woods. This city isn’t any different! I kid you not, a large portion of this city’s photo albums involves doors 🤷🏻♀️ Check in tomorrow to see where you can find this one 😉🏠
How’s this view for a #MotivationMonday ? I’m trying to wind down after a hectic call and post-call these last two days and this photo brings back so many pleasant memories.
If you haven’t already heard my spiel, I started this Instagram to reflect on the incredible opportunities I’ve had to travel and see the world. I realize not many have the privilege to leave the country or even their own city, so I remind myself daily to be humble and use my experiences to provide better care for my patients. Many physicians can become jaded over time - and it’s understandable given the short time constraints with patients and long hours they’ve had to put in through the years. Though I can’t make any guarantees, I’ve made a promise to myself to try and stay grounded through it all, to see from my patients’ point of views, and let that guide the best care possible! •••••
Tune in Wednesday for this #WhereIWishIWasWednesday location!
Anyone heading to Los Angeles anytime soon? Check out my highlights reel for some of my favorite things to do and eat 😋 I travel to LA often as my fiancé lives in the area for his current job. Counting down the days until long distance is a thing of the past! And no, this isn’t my Porsche...but it is my future father-in-law’s 😉 we borrowed it for the day to *zoom* around LA in style 😎💁🏻♀️
First overnight call tonight - who’s ready to stay up with me? 🙅🏻♀️
For this week’s #WhereIWishIWasWednesday , I’ll be covering a few trips’ worth of tips as it’s a city my heart will always reside (hint: check out the street signs 😉). Stay tuned!
Back from a weekend venue shopping to start my second month of Internal Medicine! We saw so many beautiful venues, it’s going to be difficult choosing between them all 😫 What are some of your venue must-haves?
Celebrating a break between my two Internal Medicine rotations by going on a wedding venue adventure! I’m so fortunate that my fiancé and mom know what I like, and they booked all the venue tours for tomorrow 😉 what’s your wedding style?
I can’t believe I’m already halfway done with my Internal Medicine rotation. In these four short weeks, my patients have taught me so much more than I ever could’ve imagined. Aside from their complex medical diseases, many of these patients face social hardships and barriers that further complicate their medical journey - so much so that I find myself worrying about them even after I leave the hospital. A big part of medicine is work-life balance, and this rotation has definitely made it harder to leave work at work. •
I was on call yesterday and didn’t get a chance to post the #WhereIWishIWasWednesday preview, so here it is! Stay tuned for a surprise adventure this weekend! 🗺
Happy Friday! Did y’all catch my #WhereIWishIWasWednesday Oahu recap on my stories? It’s a long one, but it captures three trips’ worth of highlights! We’ve only visited Oahu because we refuse to stay anywhere other than the @disneyaulani Resort. My family loves vacationing with Disney, whether it’s visiting the parks, exploring a resort, or adventuring on their cruise line! From the attention to details, incredible service, and variety of experiences for all ages, I cannot recommend a vacation with the pros more. What are your favorite Disney vacation stories??
Only 3 more 14-hour call days left before I move sites for Internal Medicine! Can you tell I’m counting down the days...? But I suppose being inside for 14 hours is better than trying to combat the 100°+ weather here in Dallas ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #TexasSummers 🔥🔥🔥
Continuing the #WhereIWishIWasWednesday with a hint: you can catch a glimpse of this week’s featured island in theaters 🌴🦖🍿
Since my traveling is limited to my IM and Surgery schedules, I’ll be starting a new series called #WhereIWishIWasWednesday to reflect on past travels and hopefully provide good food or sightseeing tips! If there’s a place you need a recommendation or you’d like to see featured, let me know ☺️ We’ll be starting with this location - come back Wednesday to find out where this is 🗺
I wish I were back in the clouds instead of prepping for another 14-hour call day tomorrow 😭 All travels are on a little standstill as I navigate my Internal Medicine and then Surgery rotations these next four months. There may be a surprise here and there 😉 but otherwise, I’ll be living vicariously through past photos!
Giving y’all a different ~perspective~ of that classic skyline! I’m back from the adventure in New York, and started my Internal Medicine rotation today! I’m ready to start the quintessential “rite of passage” for all medical students and put my STEP studying to good use. Check in for more IM updates 😝
For this view, make a trek to Le Bain at The Standard. There’s an indoor bar with a pool, or you can head to the rooftop for some fun in the sun! ☀️🥂 hope y’all had a great Monday!
Happy Wednesday y’all! Heading to the big 🍎 apple this weekend to celebrate my little sis turning TWENTY FUN! 🥂 We have a few reservations made, but I want to know what your favorite places for cute insta-worthy snacks and treats?? 🍭 Gotta make that last trip of the summer worth it! 😋
If you saw on my stories, I visited my fiancé in Tehachapi, California for an annual party: Junetoberfest! I’ve got one last trip planned this weekend before I start my Internal Medicine rotation next week 😱 •
This photo is from our helicopter ride over the Great Barrier Reef (still reminiscing over that trip if you can’t tell 😂). Check out the link in my bio to see the full highlight reel!
I’m still in recovery mode from this weekend in Vegas aka give me all of the coffee to survive this morning’s early start in anesthesiology! Starbucks originated in Seattle, but contrary to popular opinion, I found some great and bold flavors in other parts of the farmers market 😜 sorry bucks! 👋🏻
Hope y’all are having a happy Monday, and that you’ve gotten enough coffee to survive your day! 👊🏻
