Starting wars here alright guys here’s my grocery haul from Wegman’s today
I like to have a lot of snacks on hand so have some of these Chobani Flip pumpkin harvest crisp yogurt they’re really good
got some 1% milk fat cottage cheese
some applesauce pouch You guys know I love these
some avocados this i thought was really interesting it’s they’re called Kiwi berries they’re really small but when you cut it supposed to look like a Kiwi so I can’t wait to try these
some brie cheese Some cut watermelon
some of these baby potatoes and i think i’m going to roast them as a side
got a little salad pack that i’m going to eat with my chicken breast got a thing of lobster mac and cheese because they looked so good some of these cheese cubes
They’re like aged parmesan cheese they’re really good for snacking and then I picked up some of these bars that I can keep them in my white coat so I got the mediterra kale and pumpkin seeds and I thought it was interesting because it says its savory bar and most of the snack bars are like sweet tasting so I wanted to try this one Rx bar i like them alot i haven’t tried this flavor maple sea salt at least i don’t think i have tried them so i got one of these and i got this honey stinger honey waffle I’ve had these before they’re really good and i thought some of these rice pop cakes and these are the best like sort of mindless snacks because they’re like 15 calories per piece and one piece is like this whole thing so it’s like pretty big and I got some spicy shrimp crackers and some potato chips one thing I picked up on my way home from a Korean grocery store is this 불닭볶음면 (firey chicken stir fried noodles) they’re supposed to be like really spicy noodles from Korea people have been doing a spicy ramen challenges and I thought it might be fun to do one so
babe- do you want to try one? okay so we’ll try the spicy noodles for you guys ready?
Hi guys! so we’re doing the spicy noodle challenge I think the challenge is just to eat it we’ll see how spicy it is ok so what we do is we’re going to put in this spicy sauce in the middle the noodles are already cooked
spicy sauce and then we’re gonna put this flake thing on top and we’re gonna mix together actually can I have a fork instead of chopsticks? fork???
yeah
Aren’t you asian?
Come on, please Here’s a fork for you
Yours is not as well mixed as mine i need to do a better job mixing Ooh that looks spicy oh wow that is so spicy
does it burn? So spicy
Let’s see who can finish first I don’t know if I can finish this- So spicy! I think I’m gonna finish before you It’s really good i like it
It hurts it hurts my mouth
do you think you can finish it all? no let’s switch
oh no!
You wanna know the truth? only a little bit and I threw the rest over there oh my god I knew it!
you put like less than half yeah it barely put anything in it
oh my god no wonder it’s like white
You know what’s deceiving? when you first taste it, it’s sweet but then as it goes down it gets super hot you know I think the key is to finish as fast as we can ok guys so it’s a little late like ten o’clock i’m going to be doing a little bit of studying and heading to bed soon so I just want to talk about a quick thing that I’ve been doing for this rotation for the ob/gyn rotation we have have a list of topics that at any moment a resident or an attending could ask us to present any of the topics so at first i didn’t like it because it means i have to be prepared at all times to present at least one topic any day but I actually have found it to be a really useful study tool because what I’ll do is normally in the first week of rotation that’s when I kind of take things easy because I know like shelf-exams really far away so I just do my rotations and I don’t really do a ton of studying but because of this topic presentation requirement I’ve been doing a little bit of a review / studying every night so i’ll make a little note cards so this is preeclampsia one of the topics that i had to present
I made like a two notecards summary of preeclampsia what’s important like what are the requirements for the diagnosis and how you treat it, how you manage it and just making like a little summary card for them and I’ve been keeping up with me just in case somebody asks me to present i mean i think this little bit of like tiny tiny bites of studying has been like a very effective because actually what i’m doing is i’m studying for the shelf which is six weeks away but I’m doing it in tiny little chunks so it makes it much more manageable and I think this is a concept that you guys can apply to your i’m studying as well whether you’re studying medicine or not because when you have a really busy day can be easy to say I’m just gonna take it easy today and not study but if you do just like a little tiny topic and you master that topic then it’ll help you later on when you have to prepare for your exam so you’re not cramming in the end so lesson to be learned i’m going to do a little bit of studying every night so that number one prepare for my presentations that number two, i’ll be more prepared for my shelf later on and i have to rush or cram to prepare for it alright guys it’s getting pretty late and my hair’s looking crazy and just gonna do a quick thing before i go to bed i showed you guys this in instagram it’s like a knot tying practice kit so you can try tying knots here or here actually not sure what to do with this thing maybe you’re supposed to reach in and do something not sure I’m practicing mostly on these two rubber bands and this rope just makes it easier plus it it’s like different colors on each side so you can when you’re following along the guide from a book something like this I’m it’s much easier to tell which side is what so this is.. I’ll show you the book and I’ll link everything in the in the description box below so this is the book surgical knot and suturing techniques. I have some equipments here and I’m just gonna practice some knots before i go to bed ok guys final thing I do before going to bed i’m going to answer some snapchat questions that you guys sent in couple weeks ago i’m just going to do a few right now i’ll do the rest in either another vlog or I’ll make a separate video for it yeah that’ll be the last thing I do before going to bed

  1. Where's your desk and chair from in the living area. Also where's your MacBook stand from. U.K. Shops Preferably xxxxx

  2. The cup is for knots which you slide down when tied, like that you can also reach difficult structures. It's called half-hitch โ˜บ๏ธ Love your vids, I wait all week for it and you motivate me when vet.med studies are giving me a hard time ๐Ÿ’ชโค๏ธ

  6. Cool.. You can vlog when being medical student. Wish i can doing like that too when im still be medical student.. Maybe i can start now when i work.. Thanks for inspiring me.. Love ur vlog๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

  7. Please upload a video on how you made those study cards. When I try using study cards I end up writing too much extra information x

  8. "Closer" is my favorite movie too! Of all the movies out there, it's such an interesting/rare favorite to choose. Do you remember what about it stood out to you the most?

  9. Could you perhaps continue to put the current time for when you're switching between tasks? Your vlogs are so motivating for my studying! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Even though I'm not a medical student (nursing student) your tips on apps and note taking techniques are awesome! Wish I would have known this in the beginning!

  11. omg, Wegmans! It fed me through medschool (now I miss it). Enjoy OBGYN! It was my least favorite rotation in third year. But then everyone likes different things. I just hope the OB culture at your institution isn't so malignant.

  12. love your blog, hopefully after i finished my medschool i can go to us for residency ๐Ÿ™‚ anw I'm now going to medschool in Bali, if you visit Bali again let me know, ill be your tour guide *for free lol

  13. Do medical students make money? How do you pay rent? I'm not trying to be nosy. I'm curious because it seems as though you don't have time for working a job. and I happened to be eating kimchi noodles when I watched this lol

  14. Videos are informative and relaxing. I plan to go to Med-school but I been in the military for four and half years and also have a TBI so its going to be a bit of a challenge. But it shall get done ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. hey! I ve been watching your blog for a while and you are so cute! I like the way you share our live and the fact that you are so organised! I wish to go to Med School , I'm 11th grade and I m already preparing.The problem is I m a little bit unorganised and you motivate and help me very much! When I ll get in the first year I wish I 'd study medicine the way you do, and find a balance.Thank you for sharing your experiences with us ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’โค๐Ÿ’™

  16. Hey, M2 here. So our school is doing this thing where you take Step as a random "block" during 3rd year. I want to prioritize internal and family med. I want to do really well on step but I also equally want to do well on the shelves, what is your opinion of taking step before or after those rotations?

    Also, what do you think about the speculation that taking a rotation near the end where everyone else in the country has had time to adjust to studying and shelf averages will be higher?

  17. Hi Jamie, I'm a medical student from Turkey and I really like your videos. I wanted to share my opinion about the glass that you dont know how to use( 11:10) (I suppose that) You must put your hand in this glass and try to tie a knot by your one hand to improve your hand-talent. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

  18. Which med school r u going?? Also I love all ur videos keep doing… It always keeps me motivated… ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  19. I just discovered your channel and subscribed one third way down the video ! You're editing and videos are amazing, thank you for sharing.

  20. I love your videos! thank you so much for taking the time to vlog! I'm a first year student at Smith College. These videos really help me to understand what life in medical school is like!

  21. I cant wait to get into medical school in roughly 4 months wish me luck ecrone nd jamie I luv your videos keep up the goodwork

  22. What do you use to make the flashcards ? – I mean the material for the cards ? Please drop a link if possible !

  23. Hi as a high school student how do I start studying medicine? What books should I read? What field do I focus on? I love your videos thanks!

  24. Do you usually use a tracker (pen) when reading? I do and I have an issue of thinking I am the only one using a tracker and that I am weird. LOl

  25. its sooo cute as soon as she said "babe do you wanna try it" he was like "okay" thats cute jdjdjdjjdjfnfhjdjdngh๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

  26. I think I'm you fan #1 now. I'm getting ready to go med school or just actually college for now. How did your first year of college job looked like? and what are some Items you would recommend your younger self, if you were a freshmen in college to must have?

  27. This is random and I hope you read this, but what would you recommend would be the most valuable thing a premed student could do to appeal to med schools. (Basically, do you think volunteering, research, or shadowing is the most important experience to obtain)?

  28. I'm a sophomore and want to be an Obgyn and I'm doing research to know what to expect and decide if the right career for me

  29. So you are asian, but did you come to USA to study or you was born in US?
    I really want to study medicine and live in the USA, but everyone tells me that it's impossible because it's another high school system and it's too expensieve.

  30. I saw the link you posted about your planner but they have different ones. Which specific one is yours? Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ˜

  31. I'm interested in being an obgyn. Since it takes so long, during college can you work anywhere after getting a degree (not a doctor yet) but as a nurse or something. Since college is expensive ๐Ÿ˜‚
