D4 – The New Normal

Last week, was our official start to the new school year 2020-2021. School is year round for us so as quick as the year ends (3rd week in April) , the new one starts back up. For my class, it’s our last year, the one year where you, finally and at last, know what to expect and what is expected of you, because traditionally your entire schedule is being in clinic 98% of the time. (We would have had 2 classes  that met for an hr once a week this entire semester.)  You pretty much know like the back of your hand,  the ins and out of clinic, bread and butter dental procedures, patient management and all things dental school related. Well obviously, things are looking a little Continue reading “D4 – The New Normal”

It was all good just a week ago. LOL.

No but really….

Anyways, this is my crew 17 strong in NOLA for my bachelorette party in January. It was everything I could have imagined and a billion times more. Filled with great food, great drinks, great people and great music.

And then literally a week ago – my Bridal Shower. It was such a beautiful and fulfilling experience. To be surrounded by my village, my closest friend circle, basically women from all backgrounds with all types of wisdom, knowledge and experience to support me with, I had such a great time. I’m so grateful to have experienced these two wedding celebrations since  the Wedding date is uncertain right now.

When I find myself getting down about how crazy things are now, and how much of an interruption this pandemic is causing as far as the wedding goes, I think back on the 2 events I was able to participate in and am reminded of how lucky I was to have that experience. Praying for better days!!

Dental school and life (wedding in April) has been a whirlwind since my last post in September. lol I ended Fall semester as a D3 fine… but not super satisfied with my production and work ethic in clinic in terms of completing test cases . My friend and I conspired against our next semester, declaring that we would get Continue reading “Yikes”

Back from BOARDS! (NBDE pt 1)

It’s been a minute. My apologies. I had quite the last couple of months, from nonstop studying for Finals in April to Boards which I took May 20, to just life in general (struggled passing a class, car got towed $$$$, fiancé moved in etc) Like I said LIFE. I’m almost traumatized from how much was going on but I’m so happy I made it Continue reading “Back from BOARDS! (NBDE pt 1)”

When people ask how finals are going

2 down, 8 to go!  Except those 8 are in a span of 4 days.😩 lol So unreal. Ironically this semester wasn’t as demanding as the past ones but these finals are coming in hot! lol Pray for me. 1 week away from being half a dentist (50% done with school)! And 8 days away from my hiatus to study for BOARDS! Pray for me x2 . 😇
