I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that my mom is coming to live with me. Yes, I'm 23 years old, and yes, I can take care of myself, but I don't care! Things will be a lot better with her around. It's always nice to have someone around to comfort you when life gets rough...and in medical school, I have many such moments. I just hope that she'll enjoy living in Miami. I personally love my school and the weather, but that's about it. There's not all that much to do here unless you love beaches and the night life. I'm more of a cultural events type of person, who loves musical and dance performances. So naturally I'm already starting to miss San Francisco. I swear, if I can help it, I'm going to settle down in the Bay Area eventually.

Hey guys! Nothing depressing to report like last time. Actually, overall things are going great. School has gotten a lot more intestesting a little less stressful, my research project is finally starting, I'm keeping up with my two favorite TV Shows (American Idol and Miley Jab Hum Tum)...and basically just enjoying life. And of course...my mom is visiting me in March, so I'm excited about that. I hope I don't jinx it by saying so, but I am as content as can be right now. :) I feel like there's so much to be grateful for and so much to look forward to.

So overall, med school is going well...but there have been a few moments where I have questioned my career choice. Maybe I just need to stop being so emotional. Anyway, I have an interesting experience to share with whoever is willing to read it...

I helped organize a huge health fair last weekend that went quite smoothly overall. There was one upsetting experience which only involved me. I was taking vitals (blood pressure, pulse, height, weight, etc) at the fair and my very first patient started yelling at me. He refused to sit down, said I pumped the bp cuff too high (even though I didn't) and said he wanted someone else to take his bp because I was taking too long. He ACTUALLY made me cry! I had to leave the room to calm down. Fortunately some friends were there and they consoled me saying that he was just being a jerk. I eventually returned to the vitals room and continued working. All of my other patients were nice, so I regained my self-esteem and realized that it really wasn't my fault. Although I'm still a little traumatized form the experience, I think it was beneficial in a way because I'm probably going to have an occasional patient like that in the future. I better get used to it before I actually become a doctor...It does irritate me though that he thought it was okay for him to behave that way when we are providing him with a free service.

For any of you guys who want to be doctors, you'll have to be prepared for things like this. Not all patients are grateful for the service doctors provide them.

As you all know, earlier today Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States! I celebrated by skipping all my classes and relaxing at home. His inauguration speech was very good! Considering what a great orator he is, that was expected. I really hope that he accomplishes the goals that he has set out for himself, and that he is able to keep the Democratic Party united.

Nothing new to report on the personal front. Just keeping up with school and staying busy. I watched Ghajini over Winter Break, which I enjoyed thoroughly, but thought it was too filmi to be considered a great movie. Last Friday, I finally saw Slumdog Millionaire and absolutely loved it! Hope it takes home several Oscars...

LOTS of creations today!

That was the best Thanksgiving break ever!!! I drove up to Orlando with two of my classmates, then joined my cousins at the Swan and Dophin resort...We went to Magic Kingdom on Thursday and Animal Kingdom on Friday. Both were super fun! Then on Saturday, I went to my cousin's place...I hadn't seen her in ten years! She has three kids and I really enjoyed hanging out with them. Can't wait to go visit them again...

Five new signatures under the cut!

Not much to say right now, except that I think I may have selected my specialty! I've gotten comments from several friends in the past that I'm patient and good with kids....and recently a classmate of mine said that same thing. So I'm thinking...why not pediatrics? I do love children and would love to make them feel better when their sick. I know I was always saying that I wanted to devote my life to cancer, and I haven't given up on that. So, I guess to be precise, I'm considering going into Pediatric Oncology. Let's see if I still say the same thing two years from now.

Seven new sets under the cut!

Hey guys! Wow, I was gone for a long time...I can barely believe that I've been in med school for three months! There's just so much to do that time flies by. Before I know it, I'll probably be graduating and heading off to a residency program.

The first two months were, for the lack of a better term, completely and utterly insane! The Human Structure module including Gross Anatomy was the most stressful eight weeks of my life. The day before the final exam, I spent the entire day in the anatomy lab, examining cadavers and inhaling that carcinogen called formaldehyde. In the end it paid off, and I did reasonable well in the module. I thought the second module (Genetics and Biochemistry) would be much easier, but it proved to be quite challenging as well. I took the final exam this morning. Looking forward to starting fresh once again.

Okay, enough about school...Tuesday of this week was a historical day and probably one of the most significant of our lifetimes. After a long and close battle, Barack Obama emerged victorious as the newest President-Elect of the United States! This was exactly what I was hoping for, so I'm ecstatic. It's about time someone brings change to this country. And in recognition of Senator Obama's accomplishment, my new LJ layout features him and his adorable family. Hope you all like it!

Lots of creations over the past few months, but I don't have time to post them all. I will be uploading them to my website gallery soon. By next week, I should have a new layout for my website, and all creations uploaded. As for now, I'll just share some creations I made this afternoon, after my exam.  A lot of the textures I used are by misstarlight.

Everything is free for use!

OH MY GOD! I can hardly believe it, but I am starting medical school tomorrow...In only 12 hours, I will wake up and get ready for my VERY FIRST day of classes. I'm soooo excited!!! The day is finally here. You know, until Friday when I actually formally registered, I couldn't get the irrational fear out of my mind that something would go wrong. That maybe one of my transcripts didn't arrive on time or that my financial aid wouldn't get processed. But now I am finally at ease and confident that I am in fact now a medical student.

We had orientation on Thursday and Friday which was totally exhausting! Imagine, sitting in one seat for seven hours a day while the med school deans just talk on and on about the curriculum, school policies, resources, ethics, expectations, etc, etc. Of course, it was very useful and interesting at times, but definitely tiring as well. Saturday was more of a fun day...It was organized by academic societies and called "Game Day". We were sorted (somewhat Harry Potter style) into one of 12 societies and we competed in some outdoor activities against each other. My society called Courvoiser (named after a French liver surgeon, but apparently also the name of an alcoholic beverage) did very well, getting first in one competition and second in another. Hope we'll maintain the spirit and competitiveness in the future.

So now for creations. I've been busy with requests lately, so didn't get a chance to make much. You can find three new sets under the cut. More coming up whenever I have time.

Hi everyone! Sorry for the long gap between entries. I was busy preparing for my big move, and YES, I am now in Miami, one of the most beautiful cities in the world! I LOVE every single thing about it. I'm still working on furnishing my new apartment, though I'm almost done. Guess what! I'm lving by myself in a one bedroom! Can you believe it?! All alone! It's a bit lonely at times and occasionally scary at night, but I'm getting used to it. Fortunately I have a car, so I can go out and explore whenever I feel upto it. It's a brand new slate grey 2009 Toyota Corolla, and I'm completely in love with it! Will post pictures of the car and apartment soon.

As far as medical school goes, I still have a lot of preparation to do. I haven't really purchased any supplies yet, but I've heard that the one thing we'll definitely need from the start is a stethoscope. I'll probably buy one online within the next few days. Besides that, I guess just books and stationary. It can't be too different from undergrad, right?

Okay, enough talk about academics...let's move on to creations! First of all, as you can see, I've finally updated my layout. The new leayout features Amrita Rao, looking absolutely stunning in red. I've worked hard on it, so please leave your comments and let me know what you think.

You can find seven of my newest sets under the cut. I've made a lot more in the past couple months, but it'll take me way to long to post them all. If you want to check them out, please visit my gallery here.

P.S. I watched Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na a while back, and I highly recommend it. It's not a great film by any definition, but you'll be entertained. Imran Khan was wonderful as a newcomer, but it was Genelia D'Souza who stole the show with her bubbly presence.
