Zaha Hadid is like my most favorite Architect. Granted, i dont know many, but I love her work. Its contemporary and spectacular. I would love to actually see some her work in person.

Follow the link for more of her work, including the pool she designed for London Olympics in 2012

Beginning of the End

Tomorrow marks my first official day of my last year of medical school. I start with my acting internship at Washington Hospital Center. Its a performance elective, so basically, I have to be on top of my game the whole month. But all of that is not what I am anxious about, because perform is what I do. I’m anxious about how real everything is becoming. This is it, Im going to the big leagues.

This weekend was GREAT. I had a very restful and funny saturday. I got to hang out with some friends I haven’t seen in a while. I had lunch outside at a great mexican restaurant, I got more spanish steak [i know, i need to stop, but i think its my new vice]. I also found a nice bakery and had some AMAZING cake. Lucky for me, all of this stuff is real close to my homeboy’s house, so I will be visiting them frequently in the coming year.

Today was a good day, I got some studying in [not enough but, meh] I also saw my aunt. I always like catching up with people and I love me some good ole’ fashion encouragement. I guess all in all, its been a pretty appropriate way to officially start the beginning of the end. I know the next few months are going to be a whirlwind and I gotta take these little joys and keep them in mind for the rough times to come.

peace and love


In case you didnt know…

Junot Diaz is one of my favorite Modern writers.  I’ve talked about him before a few times on my blog. Well I found a Time: Origins piece on him from a few years back and it just confirmed that this dude is awesome. He loves one of my personal favorite films, the little known gem, Raising Victor Vargas. This dude is making big moves and interview after interview I can only respect him and his work more and more. He’s coming to DC sept 16th and he’ll be at NYU on Nov 11  [while I’ll be in the bronx]. I will be making one of those appearances



I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.

One of my favorite cartoons as a kid. I still find myself singing this song sometimes lol

enjoy… and good night

hoy = today

So today was a very good day.

I got through my departmental letter interview very easy. We chopped it up and kept it moving.

I also got my schedule finalized for 4th year. Well, this first semester atleast. And I have finally submitted my application to Einstein. My month in the Bronx is just at my finger tips.

Everything is working out so nicely. I even got an email from the program director at Hopkins-Bayview program saying that she wants to meet with the Internal Medicine group to discuss her program because they are interested in Howard Students. [I like the sound of that lol]

So with all this stuff coming into place and working out the way it has, all i can say is that I am just grateful. The good days sometime seem few and far between, but when a good one comes it makes you forget about the other stuff.

Dang, I really outdid myself yesterday. I did it so well, that I had to do it again today lol.

I made up a new recipe. I made a honey peach glazed tilapia fillet. I usually dont like cooking with tilapia but it worked perfectly. I dont know where my inspiration came from, but it was SO dang good. I also made a basil pepper rice to go along with the protein.
