WHAT TO WEAR UNDER WHITE COAT #1. This was what I wore on Monday (8/27) for my first patient interview: bright peppy colours as a final salute to the (hopefully soon) last days of blistering summer. These sessions are videotaped so we can watch and reflect on what we did and how to improve, so I'm determined to wear extra fresh outfits to distract myself from the anxiety I get from watching myself on tape (I HATE hearing my own voice in these things ... hence not having branched out to Youtube). Keeping it simple and having a base colour of white for my top allows it to blend into my white coat better while introducing pops of fuchsia and green and yellow. I like the straight-cut sheath shape of this tank and decided without much deliberation at H&M, as it's one of my favourite showcased pieces of theirs this summer. The back has a tiny slit that's buttoned, so it's classy with a bit of interesting detail. It was a nice grey semi-rainy day so I was able to photograph outside with the colours un-distorted and vibrant.

The days are flying by in med school. In the past three days, I interacted with my first patient (who praised me for my empathic personality yay!), got a taste of anatomy lab with hands-on exploration, and learned how to draw blood, put in an EKG, test for blood glucose, give shots, etc. Lectures are never-ending inside class and out, and the work multiplies like a drug-resistant strain of bacteria. But I am always finding new fun things to do, like ZUMBA classes with friends, grabbing high class bubble tea, watching horror flicks when the biochem pathways become too serious. Tomorrow I am camping out early for the grand opening of the H&M in Polaris, hoping to get that $300 gift card. This Labor Day weekend, JJ is coming to visit and we're going to hit up Cedar Point for the best roller coasters in the country! If I can describe my life right now in a word, it's "intense." Dressing up every day helps me squeeze the word "fantabulous" in there too.

And as a final treat, here is my unsightly self in scrubs for anatomy lab. The reality of medical student-fashion blogger life.

Do you love yellow?
I noticed that your toenails are painted 'sunshine yellow'.
How cute. :)

And I like how you can look good in yellow. I can't. *sad*

I'm in love with that skirt, I need to get one like that!

Also so much respect for taking that with a tripod yourself! I got as far as my garden, I'm too afraid to go stand on the street :P
