Did you know that smiling can make you happier? :) I hope you try that today regardless of what is going in your life. ✖️
Besides that, I’m very curious to know where and who my followers are. 🤔
Comment your country’s name and flag! I love culture, learning new things about it and find it beautiful that we have so much of it.

Happy Friday, everyone!
I want all of you to comment something nice or something that you like about yourself, go ahead, don’t be shy. ✖️
We are frequently too hard on ourselves, let this be a moment or a day where you can be free of that and see the beauty and value that you and each of us bring to the table. ✖️

AMBITION by Med á la Mode⠀
_______________________________________________________________⠀
What does it mean to be ambitious? ⠀
To me it means to invest in yourself, because when you do that you become a better person. ⠀
Us women have so much influence when we speak up & stand up for what we believe in & what we are worth. Women are still undervalued in society. ⠀
Respect yourself, empower yourself, because when you do then you won’t stay in relationships (work, personal, intimate, etc) that won’t work, you won’t stay in relationships that will make you feel less about yourself, because no one has a right to make you feel less about yourself. ⠀
Most importantly, if you are a woman who is ambitious, it’s important to find a partner that is just as ambitious. (Thankfully my s.o. is just as ambitious and driven). The partner you choose is very important because when he is ambitious and secure you can be whatever you choose to be. Whereas the way that society says to men that you have to support your family, you have to be better than your wife or girlfriend, that is part of the problem because you don’t really have to, it’s meant to be a partnership. Sometimes someone does better and sometimes it’s the other person and that is ok. As women it is our responsibility to instill in the men around us these ethics, to our sons, grandsons, that your wife and girlfriend is YOUR PARTNER. It’s not a competition just be the best you can be as a person and if you love her, show her and shower her with the utmost devotion. ♥️
To my generation, it’s our responsibility to instill this open, rational, compassionate and conscious way of thinking. ⠀

I was the female version of Sherlock Holmes today. 🧐
___________
It was chilly today, so I decided to pull out my trench coat and I was warm and comfy the entire day. The coat works as a makeshift dress, too. 💁🏻‍♀️ & as you can see I was getting my study on. 👩🏻‍⚕️📚
____________
Get ready for tomorrow lovelies & finish off with a bang! Gotta deserve that fun or relaxing weekend. 😉

✨ Take back Thursday! ✨
___________
Haven’t done these in a while!
This image that you see here was one of the happiest moments of my life, it’s a simple image and a simple accomplishment; when I was approved to be on the Delirium volunteer program at the San Jacinto Methodist Hospital, but the fact that I was getting closer to my goal made me bloom with delight and exuberance. ☺️✨ .
.
___________
Besides #tbt maybe the real reason is that I miss the hospital, it’s a unique longing that cannot be explained in writing. I’ll be going back to doing my volunteering rounds soon....... 👩🏻‍⚕️💉

The cold & flu may be dying down a bit since October and November, with its peak in December and February but it can last as late as May. Can you believe that? 😳

Being conscious of my body & making sure I give it good things, I thought I’d share with you my go-to Cold & Flu starter pack! 👩🏻‍⚕️🙌🏼

💧 Water is clean, essential and pure, drink it.💧
__________________________________________________
Today, after I was put under several torture devices, especially the intensive massage that my new chiropractor gave me to take out the knots all over my back and neck, I was left feeling more relieved for the first time since my accident.
All those knots were caused by the accident and the presence of lactic acid and as my chiropractor made it doubly clear, it was very important for me to drink lots of water (it’s not like I already don’t) but this advice seemed so urgent to my D.C. (I thought: Do most people not drink a lot of water?) If I don’t then I would be feeling the soreness the next day from the excruciating (but oh so helpful) massage that I was given today.

So, injured or not, take a swig of that ol’ H2O 😉

MEDICINE by Med á la Mode
_______________________________________________________________
Love getting these in the mail by IBP (Institute for Brain Potential)👩🏻‍⚕️♥️
___________
This is another invitation to a seminar where all health professionals come together and learn about medicine, health, nutrition, etc.
____________
&& it also counts as 6 hours CEU’s towards my Pharmacy Technician certification that I got back in 2016.
____________
Counting from the time I was a pharmacy technician in training, I would say I have 2 years of experience as a certified pharmacy technician & 1.5 as a trainee, I’ve been a health screener for almost a year and am certified in Type 2 Diabetes screening, optical, auricular and spinal screening, I’ve done & will still be volunteering at the hospital as a Delirium screener, where I performed a lot of patient education and speaking with families and patients about Delirium. .
.
.
• I’ve created my own school organization at my university to fulfill leadership criteria
• Have been a certified substitute teacher
• Created a small photography business from the bottom
.
. • & much more.....
____________
I could have gone the EMT, medical assistant or phlebotomist route, but I wanted to learn the medications, so when I take the pharmacology class, it would be a breeze. However, I’m going to be doing more things before my application, pretty soon......something different 😎 so I can be a well-rounded applicant. 🙏
____________
A question for all pre-meds & medical students, what job or volunteering did you do to stand out, fulfill clinical, medical or patient care requirements? 👩🏻‍⚕️♥️🏥

UPDATE by Med á la Mode ———————————————————————————- ❄️ Keep calm & let it snow, here in Texas ❄️ It was just warm yesterday & my heart skipped a beat when I received an emergency notice from the University of Houston, (I thought we were going to be nuked 😅 you can’t blame me, though, this week has also not been the best foot forward from our current U.S. President) now the temperature will be dropping in the mid 20s, universities have been cancelled from Katy, to Houston & surrounding places. How do I feel about this? Happy that it’s a silver lining after a tough week, I get to rest & prepare but am concerned about this erratic weather & the health of our planet. But let’s Mother Nature do what it does, to heal herself, She probably knows best than us. ❄️ #chicstemwoman #chicmedwoman #medalamode .

UPDATE by Med á la Mode blog ————————————————————————————
“It’s going tibia okay!” is what I’ve been telling myself these past few days since the accident & have been feeling restricted ever since then.
I don’t want to be whiny, but I’ve led such a very active lifestyle before the accident & have not been able to do much of the things that I love to do, like run, exercise, yoga, etc.....during this time I have not been able to move much, drive, bend my neck, headaches at the front & back of my head, I’ve been lying down a lot & shifting from the discomfort, I can’t sit for too long, am not able to sleep right, & the pain is mostly on the left side of my body. School starts Tuesday for me & it’s supposed to be my last year of undergrad. I’ve been having academice & work concerns & how I will manage mobility wise. My my pain & suffering are what have been infesting my thoughts during this time, all of which I am not at fault. I’ve been keeping positive by looking at all of the inspiring stories of all of my fellow medical community & their journey & know soon, I will too be there. 🏥
Thanks for being so inspiring, supporting & keeping up with my journey to the medical field. ♥️
I have an appointment with an attorney tomorrow to help my case, wish me luck everyone. 🌹🙏

Images of the crash will be in my IG story.
***** Update: The red car behind my Nissan was not the car that hit me, that is an emergency relief car that came after the incident to check my vitals, etc. The car that struck me is circled in red. .

UPDATE by MED á la MODE
————————————————————————————
It’s my last week to enjoy before I start the final year of my undergraduate, which begins next week. It’s been such a long journey, but I feel at ease that the time taken was and will not be in vain. All of my credentials and experience gathered over the years will apply towards what I’ve been working for and wanting all my life. .
.
A lot of great things happened over the holidays and I had anticipated a breezy beginning of the year....
.
.
Although 2018 started with me getting in an accident, 🤕and thankfully I am on my way to recovery, I see it all as a blessing. My body is whole, no bones were broken (maybe a muscle tear or sprain) but nothing that requires surgery, just musculoskeletal therapy, alignment and exercises to strengthen them again. .
.
.
On top of that, I owe nothing. .
.
.
I take this as a sign to rest and gather my energies for a successful school year. 🙏
