"Your eyebrows are sisters, not twins."

The most comforting beauty advice I’ve ever been given. (via cinniie)

Same for all you beauties rocking that winged eyeliner. They don’t have to exactly match, pinkie swears.

Anonymous said: Dear Lady K, quick question. Your home page says you're 23 but your about me section says you're 24! I'm just concerned that you overlooking this detail might raise questions on your credibility. I'm a premed and follow your blog religiously. I need to know that you're credible.

I’m a human being and I make mistakes! 

There’s a ton of information on this blog! I don’t remember to update it all sometimes—especially since my birthday was just a couple weeks ago. 

Thanks for catching that, it should be fixed now. 

Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahah!!!!!!!

Did this anon really just question credibility over something that simple? Y’all need to take all of the seats.

Brb, gonna slip some gems in my about me in order to catch the credibility sleuths.

- Has sucessfully used her right to bear arms on multiple occasions. Unfortunately, the fur is excessively warm and the claws just get in the way of anything that isn’t spearing salmon. Stick to your human arms, folks, Constitution be damned.
- Benchpresses the Cabbage every night.
- The Cabbage is an animatronic cabbage from 1964 Disneyland who snuck onto the Tardis this one time and never made it back to the 60s. He’s great in bed.
- Has 11 toes
- Knows more than you about basically everything as long as everything is limited to subjects like tacos and winged eyeliner
- Minored in napping and Mean Girls references in college.
- Actually I’m a sentient hologram

Yesterday my team was on call 7am-7pm to admit new patients. It was really slow, we got like 3 new people by 3:30pm. They told me to leave. So I did. The call day I was on last week was similar.

Remember that scene in Harry Potter where Harry is dancing in a cloud of letters from Hogwarts? That is apparently what happened 5 minutes after I left, except with new admits and consults.

Could…. Could I be a white cloud?

can’t do path without histo :o

when they redid the curriculum last year, we started path and histo just a few months apart and nobody knew what the hell was going on. professor spent two weeks going “so you guys have seen this before, I’m sure” as he tried to explain slides.

wasn’t until we inadvertently came together as a class and confronted the poor guy about it that things got fixed.

It’s not a required course in places?

I’ve had the chance to talk to different medical student from different schools, both MD and DO, public and private schools, and all other parts of the spectrum.

These are based off things I was told! I haven’t started med school yet, so I can’t actually testify. But I figure with they went through it and had some good advice and things to say, hey why not?

This isn’t exactly as it’s gonna go down. You make your own experiences and will find your own way.

First year

  1. This is hardest you will have ever done. So far.
  2. Even though it seems like you have no time, you really do. Now is the time to go to social events and make friends.
  3. Take pictures with everyone at your white coat ceremony.
  4. Anatomy has three types of people on the first day; the people who are way too fascinated, the ones who cry because they are cutting open a dead person, and the people who throw up into the slop bucket.
  5. Always flip the body slowly and with precision. Unless you want a formaldehyde and fat shower.
  6. You might fail your first test. Cry a lot then get over it.

Anonymous said: Since your major was photography what classes did you take for med school did you just take the pre reqs like bio, Chem, orgo and physics? Or did you take any extra upper level bio classes?

Pretty much the only upper level premed class I took was physiology, which was SUPER helpful for the MCAT.

If I could do it over I would have taken biochemistry because I still struggle with that subject. I have heard that the microbiology and histology that you get in med school are pretty different from what you get in undergrad, and I was able to do just fine in those areas without having had prior exposure. That being said, I’m sure any prior exposure could be helpful!

Come on bb, you’re better than that.

EVERYONE can talk about pizza at least.

Normally I’m very capable of being human. On test weekends (like today)…. Not so much.

Hang in there lovely. YOU WILL CRUSH THIS TEST!!!!!

So I made lentils for the first time tonight and I got a little distracted while the water was simmering down and I kind of charred the bottom layer. Whatever, I was putting them in a saucy dish anyway so I just tossed in everything that would come off.

Then, when I was doing dishes the nonstick coating started coming off. And then my stomach started hurting a little…. I think I ate teflon with my burned lentils.

Really hoping someone buys us the ceramic cookware set we registered for because I am so over this Teflon life.

Scale of 1 to emergency room, how worried should I be about this?
