Like good times with good friends. So nice to catch up with Akin today :) it’s been at least 4 years! Grateful for every moment I get to spend with good friends :)
First time playing this year it seems…I am feeling pretty spent after 3 non-stop hours with only a few water breaks between matches…pretty sure we played 5 matches (2 games each)! I’ve really missed having badminton in my life. Thankful for having been brought up with this on the weekends. Excited for round two on Sunday and getting reunited with my own college teammates!
Thankful for having a good group of friends from college :) to be specific, my team. I’m so excited one of my good friends from college, my very first baking buddy, is moving back to the Bay so I can see her more!!
Funny how things have a way of working out. I never thought doing Asthma Awareness Director in school would do so much for me. It gave me one of the best mentors and inspirational role models ever, who helped write the best letters of recommendation that helped me get a residency, which then gave me the confidence to do a residency project on asthma medications. And the big pain in the butt project that I thought I was spending pointless hours on has now been almost the ticket to my first real job as a licensed healthcare practitioner. Amazing how the pieces end up fitting together in the end, right? :) #alwaysthankful
Thankful for a job after residency! :)
Working with psych patients has again made me realize that I am so fortunate to have been blessed with a good family and an amazing support system, as well as the opportunities to achieve my dreams because of the education my parents afforded me. Thankful for a normal life :)
Today I learned some interesting non-violent crisis self-defense techniques. It makes you realize how vulnerable we can really be. I’m glad work provides training like this so we can deal with our patients in a way that doesn’t hurt anyone.
First weekend since 2013 began that I actually feel like I’m not drowning anymore. I’m far from done with my project but at least I finally have all my data collected and now I can just analyze it! Very excited about that part…things are finally starting to come together. Deep breath Jas. You will survive! Thankful for the company I had all those nights and weekends during my chart review hours after work. Thankful for my daddy always having meals ready for me when I needed a sustenance break before hitting the charts again. Thankful for being alive still!
Thankful I still have some pretty awesome bay area friends around :) sometimes I forget what a social life is…can’t wait to get it back in a few months. Just gotta power through and then see where the winds will take me!
I came to really appreciate the fact that who you know is really important to any aspect of life and especially career. Just one word, and someone could change your fate forever. From a guaranteed in to a guaranteed nothing…it very well could happen if the right person says the right things. Witnessed it in action and I will never take relationships for granted again. You want to be on people’s good sides for sure!
