How many people have to die  An unfair and unjust death  To have a reform Of the society we live in? These are  Mothers and fathers  Sons and daughters  That are victims of a terrible system That didn’t have to die. Blood has been spilled But nobody seems to care.  The pattern repeats itself  OverContinue reading “Recent Events”

Tell All Tuesday #7

Does anyone else ever feel like there is not enough time in the day to do all of the things a functioning human should do?  For example: you wake up, brush your teeth, wash your face, do skincare (can’t forget the sunscreen), take vitamins, make and eat breakfast/coffee, go to work for 8-9 hours, eatContinue reading “Tell All Tuesday #7”

Untouched

Sometimes I think about things— Things that will never be seen again. Like the beach. You will never see the exact identical beach  Ever again  The waves come and go  Washing and adjusting the sand  Creating new coastlines  With each swift sweep of the ocean Leaving things completely new  Fresh  Untouched. That is how I wishContinue reading “Untouched”

Tell All Tuesday #6

Why is it that people move to foreign countries and don’t bother the learn the official language? It is so annoying when we have patients that need a translator every time they come into the office. The appointment, that should take an hour, ends up taking two hours and your entire scheduled day of patientsContinue reading “Tell All Tuesday #6”

Fumes

Waking up tired  No matter how much I sleep Finishing the day exhausted  No matter how many hours I work The cycle is slowly eating away  At any motivation I have And the serotonin my body so graciously creates. Replenishing these things Feels like the most impossible task. Drained doesn’t seem to fully encompass TheContinue reading “Fumes”

Tell All Tuesday #5

Why does mental health have to be such a “bad” topic? Why am I bad, attention-seeking person when I speak about my mental health but I’m also weak if I don’t talk about it? Why is it appropriate to go behind someone’s back and say they’re lying about their mental health? I can’t tell youContinue reading “Tell All Tuesday #5”

Identity Crisis

How does one weave  Concepts  Of their past and present  Into one cohesive unit? This is the identity crisis  Of a first generation immigrant child. The need to maintain one’s home culture  While embracing the one we are born into  Sends young adults into a spiral. We have a choice  To assimilate completely  Or remainContinue reading “Identity Crisis”

I hate people that want “relationship energy” but don’t want the actual relationship. Some people are out here faking whole relationships, and act like they have a significant other but then drop them and claim they aren’t ready for a relationship yet. The kicker is that they then go and talk to someone else aContinue reading “Tell All Tuesday #4”

Timeline

The internal, mental timeline  That my anxiety has set for me  Never fails to make me feel behind. Behind in education Watching my peers get accepted  Into grad programs  Into research positions  Into dream jobs Reaching their future goals they always talked about  I am genuinely happy for them,  But that little voice in myContinue reading “Timeline”

Tell All Tuesday #3

You know what really makes me mad and honestly, sad? Why do I always have to be the one who makes an effort to keep a friendship going? This pandemic has made it so clear who wants to stay friends and who can’t be bothered unless you’re there physically in front of them. People whoContinue reading “Tell All Tuesday #3”
