    Creating Your Online Planner

    Out of all the tried-and-true methods of movement planner that I have used throughout my pre-med years, the online planner has withstood the test of time. I used to be a fan of paper planners, but with integrated software between my laptop and my phone, it just became too easy to forget about my paper planner. For this blog, I will provide tips to boost your online planner! Throughout college, I would often hear my role models say, “If it’s not on my calendar, it’s not going to happen.” Now that I am a graduate student, I understand the need to maximize every second. By scheduling tasks and events in…

    Get Involved In Research

    @Medical Redhead at UT South Western interviewing a physician scientist in Radiation Oncology. @MedicalRedhead with her senior design capstone thesis poster over silicon carbide. @MedicalRedhead taking water samples in Puerto Williams, Chile. It is never too early or too late to start research. From high school to a senior in college, you can be involved in research! I knew of multiple highschoolers who luckily lived close enough to a university to be able to work with faculty. Their science fair projects definitely blew ours out of the water. Are you a junior or senior in college? If you have the time after upperclassman coursework, you can still be involved in…

    Oh No! I Have A Wedding on My Exam Day!

    I was engaged in November 2017 to Mr. Redhead. I was ecstatic to marry him because he has been the greatest support system I could have ever hoped for as I finished my undergraduate career. At the time, I had accepted a full-time offer to work as a chemical engineer for an aerospace company. I would work for some time until I felt prepared enough to apply to medical school. It seemed like all the checkboxes of being an adult were getting checked off. But it all changed when the post bacc attacked… (Shoutout to my Avatar the Last Airbender fans!) My little checklist of “adulting” accomplishments suddenly did not…

    The featured photo was from the middle of my junior year when I declared pre-medical studies. These scrubs were given to me by one of my most cherished undergraduate organizations. It’s hard to believe this photo was taken two years ago. It’s hard to believe that I am finally at the point in this journey where I will be applying to medical school in one month. But here I am. I survived the pre-med journey. As I like to say, I did the thing. After earning a scribe job, working 1500+ hours, paying off tuition for an additional 27 credit hours, shadowing four physicians, and prioritizing my extracurricular activities, I…
