Finding Balance with Residency Your Spouse and Kids

March 1, 2016

I’m graduating in June of 2016, never again to traverse the halls of Johns Hopkins as an orthopaedic resident. When I entered medical school at Loma Linda University I never imagined that I would be in my current position. As you have read, much has occurred in the interim but over the years I observed […]

Potty-Training

January 4, 2015

It’s a new year and what looms on the horizon for my family is my 2 year old son starting pre-K in August. Now that may seem very far off for you, but when you have a stubborn 2 year old who doesn’t want to be potty trained, and being potty trained is a requirement […]

The Tea Party can Destroy the best of them

October 13, 2013

Gifted hands with an unbelievably ungifted mouth. I don’t even think Palin could have made a statement so unintelligent. One day he is going to wake up and realize that the tea party and Fox news really don’t speak for most of moderate Americans. My respect is gone.

Trayvon Martin..My Son?

April 5, 2012

Above is an ultrasound of my next child, a boy! The excitement I have felt about this new addition to my family is somewhat hampered by the knowledge that I am “unfortunately” having a black boy. When I first saw the story about Trayvon Martin, the very first thing that entered my mind was that […]

Surprises Surprises

June 16, 2010

You know when my wife started to have nausea and vomiting you would think that two medical students would be able to figure it out, lol. But I guess when you are the patient you don’t think as clearly. So yeah, I will be celebrating Fathers Day this year :-).

Yeah Sis

March 12, 2009

My sister just got a letter offering her acceptance to the University of Maryland School of Law!!! She was so sure that she had no chance of getting in there but she did! Love you sis and congrats!

Yes We Can

November 4, 2008

Took time out of my test week (which I’ll up date you on later) to vote. I hope all of you cast your vote for whoever you support. As for me…my ballot has already been cast:

Happy Anniversary!

July 8, 2008

So yeah, as of today I have been married for 1 year! Time really flies when you are having fun (and when you are in medical school too). We both praise God for bringing us this far in our marriage and with His help we hope to reach many more milestones.
So what did we do […]

If its good enough for a pig, its good enough for me

April 16, 2008

Took this picture while waiting in line at a chipotle restaurant. Got me thinking that I need to be fed like that pig was being fed, rather than eating the pig. Best to just cut out the middle man :).

New Site!!!

February 1, 2008

As you can see, I’ve moved up in the world :). If stuff is not completely updated yet, please understand. I’ll try to update all the broken links as time goes on. Test week is next week, so I can’t touch on too much. But I will leave you with a video that gives you […]

New Clothes

April 8, 2007

My mommy bought me clothes!!! LOl. When my mom and my grandmother team up to buy me clothes, only good things can come out of it. Clothes are usually the last thing I spend my money on which is why I was fretting about the business casual attire for the SBAS conference. But my folks […]

Women and Changing Their Last Name

January 18, 2007

Women and Changing Their Last Name Call me old fashioned, call me a chauvinist, but it is so very hard for me to understand why most women don’t change their name when they get married. Now I understand a couple of things:
1) Some women, especially those already set in their careers, like medicine, don’t […]

The Life of a Pre-Med Student: The Black Guy Perspective

December 21, 2006

The Life of a Pre-Med Student: The Black Guy Perspective You know…a lot of people have their different views and perspectives of affirmative action and whether it still works; or even whether it is still needed. I believe that it is a tad hard really to form opinions about the subject when you are […]

Personalized plates (stupid?)

June 30, 2006

Research at Hopkins is actually going great. If I had had such a great and interesting time doing research before, I actually might have considered pursuing an PhD, but its too late for that now. I’ve already started filling out 2 secondaries from George Washington and Howard University. The others haven’t contacted me yet. […]

Mission Trip Journal

July 15, 2005

BACKGROUND
Hey everyone. This is just a little background information in case you just started reading my diaries. Last summer I went on a mission trip (for 6 weeks) to Zambia, Africa with the National Association for the Prevention of Starvation (NAPS). It’s a mission group that is based in my Biology department. Whenever we can […]

Taking the future parents-in-law out

June 2, 2005

Last night I had dinner with Brittany’s parents. The purpose of the dinner was to ask their permission to marry her. I was pretty nervous at first, but it went pretty well. They inquired as to how I was going to support her. And I tried to explain to them the whole medical school loan […]

This past week in New York was pretty fun

May 19, 2005

This past week in New York was pretty fun. While my grandparents visited the people they came up there to visit, I got one of my cousins to take me to the different med schools in New York that I was interested in. I didn’t get to see a whole lot, but I was able […]

Well, I’m in Maryland now and I’m happy to be home

May 14, 2005

Well, I’m in Maryland now and I’m happy to be home. I got a $138 speeding ticket in Tennessee on the way up. The cop clocked me going 87 mph in a 70 mph area, but I know I was going at least 92 mph. I was going to point out his error but I […]

Ah, yes, the wonderful serenity that comes with being on summer break.

May 4, 2005

Ah, yes, the wonderful serenity that comes with being on summer break. For the past week, I haven’t had to wake up to an alarm clock. Summer break is the best!!! So, what have I been doing thus far? The answer to that is a pretty good amount. Even though school ended last Friday, […]

April 3, 2005

I had an absolutely wonderful weekend. I went to a retreat where my friends and I who do mission work together trained the freshman on what they should look out for and everything. I really enjoyed it, and it allowed me to have time to clear my mind, and get my connection back with God. […]

March 2, 2005

I’m on spring break right now, and I’m LOVIN IT!!! Is it possible to get senioritis as a sophomore? Lol, I hope that that isn’t what is happening to me.
Anyway, I left Alabama last Friday for Maryland. It was a long, grueling 11 hour drive but we made it home safely. We were doing […]
