Writing is Hard! (But I Want to Get Better!)

In the past, the anticipation of the writing process had always kept me on edge. Due to my ADHD brain, I could not muster the attention to sit down and plan out out a piece. As the deadline for a writing assignment approached, my anxiety would increase and then eventually reach its climax the night…

A Profile of My Mother

In keeping with the theme of the month of honoring our Mothers, I decided to write a short profile of my Mom for today’s blog post. My Mother was born in the mid 1950s in a small coastal commune southwest of the capital of Haiti. She was the 3rd child in a group of 6…

My Dance With Religion

I come from a traditionally, Haitian-American, Roman-Catholic family. Sunday Mass, Holy Communion, and prayer before meals were regular staples of my life. I even went to Catholic school from K-8 and then went to an all boys Jesuit Catholic high school where the principles of Catholicism and Christianity were embedded throughout my formal education. And…

Learning to deal with my ADHD Brain

Hi All, During my second year of medical school, for reasons that I will divulge in a later post, I was officially diagnosed with ADHD (inattention subtype) after going through a series of neuropsychiatric testing by a clinical psychologist.  I think if someone were to chronicle my life, they would notice that the symptoms were…

A brief tour of sports and exercise throughout my life

During my early childhood, sports and physical exercise never played any real significance in my life. My father grew up as an intellectual and graduated with multiple undergraduate and graduate degrees from a university in  Canada. My mom never played a day of sports in her life. During the summer after my second grade, my…

Med School Graduation and Reflections

Hi All, Or really should I say hi to the 10-15 people who stumbled upon my blog within the last few months (I love every single one of you, hehe). It has been a while since I last wrote a post, and I understand that they were pretty depressing topics.  To shift to a more…

Reassessing my relationship goals

This has been a tough week. I feel like I put so much of my identity in my previous relationship, I’m having a tough time rediscovering myself and handling being single full-time. And honestly, I think being single is overrated. Although we have been technically broken up for about a year now, we still spent…

Learning to trust again…

Recently, I had a falling out with someone I loved and cared about deeply. And I fear that I can never reach the point that I can ever trust this particular person or reach a similar level of intimacy with anyone else again. To give you a brief history,  I met her as a 1st…

Hello World! (AGAIN)

After seven years of ignoring and then completely forgetting that this blog exists, I am back. I am no longer that self-perceived socially awkward 19 year old undergraduate boy trying to drum up the courage to meet new people at parties nor do I have aspirations to be more like my extroverted friends. I’ve learned…

Meeting People at Parties

As I woke up this morning from a night of generic college kid partying, two things came upon my mind. First, I had to finish off my leftover can of arnold palmer half and half ice tea and lemonade that I bought at gourmet heaven (or as we affectionally call it, g-hav) last night at…

Hello world!

Hello world! As my blog title indicates, I am a male Yale Student in the Class of 2013. As cheesy as this sounds, I created this blog in order to express myself to the world. I consider myself a very introverted person, so what better way to open myself up is to reveal all of my random…
