Beatriz & me at Cardiff Castle
It’s been a really long time since I’ve updated, but I’m slowly getting around to keeping the gallery up to date. This quarter has kind of been really hectic, but fun nevertheless. Additionally, I’ve finally finished uploading all of the pictures from my summer abroad. Getting to the last photo was definitely bittersweet. I still can’t believe it’s over & that it’s been 3 months since I was there. Coincidentally, the last picture taken was of a lake with gloomy weather & rain pouring. Reflective of how I felt upon returning to California? I’d say so. Just kidding, that’s pretty over dramatic. But really, … can I be back there already?? Since I’m in a rush, I don’t exactly have time to post up some of my favorites from each album, so a list of the new gallery updates will have to do for now!
Hope everyone in the States had a wonderful & tasty Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful for my family, especially my parents for always being so supportive, & my friends who have become my family. Since my mom likes to read my blogs, I’d like to take the time to thank her for being the most beautiful, wonderful, amazing, & gregarious mother in the world. Thanks for always spoiling me with your love, delicious food, & support, even when I don’t deserve it. You are the reason I got into UCLA & dad is the reason I’m ambitious. My love, respect, & admiration for the both of you is immeasurable. When I was asked to write a piece for Miso for Life about love, my immediate thought was to write on the love you have for one another & for your children. No other pair of people have influenced my life so greatly & I thank you every day, constantly, for giving me so many opportunities to succeed. I look forward to the day in which I can repay you for all you’ve done for me. Mom, I’m not giving up on medical school just because some science classes are tough. It’s going to take a lot more than that to derail my goal. Love you!
