I’ve been on a blogging frenzy recently and thought it’ll be nice to share a little more about myself. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to blog my ideas and experiences and wanted to give some background of who I am by sharing 20 facts about myself.
Today I have a run-down of my favorite spots/foods in Japan from my trip 2 years ago! During this time, I got to taste the most wonderful food, visit amazing places and created new memories with my family.
Japan is definitely one of the most beautiful and unique places that I’ve visited and I highly recommend for anyone to go if they have the opportunity. The Japanese culture is very inviting and all the people are so kind and sweet. Never have I been treated with so much respect and kindness until I’ve visited here!
I hope all is well. Life has been moving so quickly, and it’s just crazy to think that it’s already May. I’ve been working as a Medical Scribe for the past two months now at a Pediatric office, and I wanted to share my experience with those who are considering to become a scribe, etc. But first off, what even is a scribe? A scribe relieves practitioners of secretarial duties by allowing them to focus directly on clinical care. Scribes are limited to documentation duties for the practitioner. Therefore, it is a great way to understand the clinical care process and documentation.
Classic Workflow Selfie!
Example of a “SOAP” note, which stands for: Subjective, Objective, Assessment and Plan.
I knew that I wanted to be a scribe because it would provide me the opportunity to gain healthcare experience and learn medical terminology. Also, getting paid at the same time! I wanted to share my initial impressions of the position to those who are looking for further healthcare opportunities. So without further ado, let’s get started!Continue reading “My first time Medical Scribing.”
Today I wanted to share my Clinical Medicine experience in Peru from June-July of 2016 with Vive Peru. This was my first time ever traveling out of the country without family, and practicing medicine as well so I was eager to explore and learn about the different healthcare system outside of the U.S. In addition, global health is very important to me because within today’s society it’s crucial to understand the processes of health, illness and healing across the globe.
I just officially finished my finals for this fall semester and I’m super content of how everything worked out. I’m so grateful to have had such amazing professors who actually care about their students and teaching! Which can be a difficult thing to find sometimes.
Anyways, a couple of weeks ago on Black Friday, I saw that Women’s Best was having a 50% off sale on all of their sports nutrition items so I decided to snag a couple of things to test and review for y’all! Women’s Best products have been consuming the social media world from Instagram fitness models and influencers so I thought that this was a perfect time to try out these products myself and to put them to the test.
The weather has been so AMAZING lately in Arizona and it’s officially feeling like fall/winter now. I have yet to get over the fact that Thanksgiving is in a couple of days and that the fall semester of school is already ending. For some of you this may be a scary or exciting thing! However, I had a good friend who messaged me earlier and asked if I could write a “study tip/guide” blog to help with the stress of the semester. So of course, I had to say yes and began right away on this post because it couldn’t have been more of a perfect time! (Also, because I just had a physics exam today so I’m treating myself to some blog time! Yay!!)
First things first, I wanted to mention that it’s taken me a good solid two years of my undergraduate career to get the hang of studying and finding out whats best for me. I’ve tried various studying methods and this is what I’ve found out what provides me with the most success. So take my advice as you please 🙂
Don’t get distracted! Put away all technology and block specific sites/apps if you need to. Phones can be a HUGE distraction so it’s important that you put it out of sight. (If it’s outta sight, it’s outta mind)
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and I apologize for the tardiness of this blog post! University has been consuming my life and I’m just learning how to balance out blogging at the same time. During this break, I’ve been listening to great podcasts within the Lifestyle section on Spotify and the word “gratitude” has been brought up numerous of times throughout different podcasts. I’ve always heard people talk about how it’s important to wake up each morning and give your thanks and gratitude before stepping out of bed, however; it’s been a difficult process for me because I never implemented a plan for myself. So, after listening to Jim Kwik’s message on The Ultimate Health Podcast, I decided to take some notes and begin a 30 Day Gratitude Challenge. I highly recommend listening to this podcast after you’re done reading this post. (157: Jim Kwik – The Key To A Better Memory)
Yesterday was my significant other’s birthday and to celebrate, I surprised him with tickets to the Arizona State Fair! It’s been awhile since we got out of our study caves and had a little date night so the fair was a perfect choice. After a long week of exams this outing was much-needed and deserved! We both love going on rides and exploring around so nonetheless, we had a great time at the fair yesterday. In addition, we also had a deep-fried banana split (yum!) and a turkey leg for that extra protein. (I was the one who decided on the banana split, of course). Although the Arizona State Fair is a fun place, I wanted to share how you can budget the fair and save $$$ since it can become expensive really quickly! So without further ado, let’s get started…Continue reading “Good Times on a Budget!”
About a week ago I went to Chicago for fall break and although I was there for only 3 days, I immediately fell in love with the city life. I did almost every touristy thing you can imagine while visiting Chicago and I made my very own Chicago Bucket-List for y’all! Additionally, this was my first time taking a trip with Barrett the Honors College and I’m extremely grateful to have explored this city with my colleagues. So without further ado, let’s get started into this list! 🙂
