Just because . . . Advertisements


I was flooded with an insane amount of good news recently.  Friends, this entry is for you. Med School Win! I received a phone call on Friday from L, my best friend since High School.  Awesome news!  She was accepted into UCSF med school.  I, in the middle of crossing the street at this point, […]


Woken up by a phone call (not so perfect, actually, I suppose).  But it was my mother, who was astonished that, for the first time in months, I was still asleep after 10:00 AM.  I was also pleasantly surprised. I slowly crept around my room, quietly stretching out and becoming human again.  My door swung […]


Coffee coffee coffee. What’s better than taking a coffee with a good friend on a chill San Francisco morning?  Taking the coffee at a place like Mavelous (maveloussf.com). I’ve passed Mavelous countless times since it opened in 2010.  With it’s elegant yet chic decor, it’s a place that I always wanted to venture into, but […]


I’m a simple girl, really.  Give me a slice of panforte from Tartine and a steaming hot, rich espresso, and I am content.  Christmas morning was quiet.  Simple.  Delicious.

Happiness!

For the first time in recent history, my stress levels have dropped below critical, and I can begin breathing again! In other words, I have finally completed the Bar.  It was a horrible three days, but they were spent among nearly 2000 friends and fellow exam takers, and we all made it through together. Congratulations […]


Got this fortune in my cookie on Saturday.  I might need to frame it and hang it up in my room somewhere to keep me going. I wonder how accurate it is– one of my current plans is to marry a multi-millionaire (or was it billionaire?).   😀  I wonder . . .  If you are […]


[Photo: me driving back from DC with brother Jon and friends Derick and James, photo by Derick] This has been something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time.  Every since last summer, I really wanted to go on a trek across our nation’s capital and take copious pictures.  It would, I thought, be […]
