.. and if I have a few extra minutes while my while my planner supplies are out I’ll plan the next week as well. Nothing super concrete, just the basics like my work/call/study schedules and big events. I usually use an @erincondren sticker kit. The stickers are easily respositionable so I feel zero guilt laying them down in advance. When you’re busy, you plan when you can! I love how this turned out

Thought I'd end up in peds,
But it wasn't a match
Wrote some papers about heme,
Now I read and laugh
Even almost quit med school
And for Onc, I'm so thankful
Wish I could say, Thank you to med school.
'Cause that’s where it started
One taught me love
One taught me patience
🤕And one taught me pain
Now, I'm so amazing
I've learned and I've worked
But that's not what I see
So, look what I got
Look what you taught me
And for that, I say...️‍️ Thank u, next!
*** Nearly halfway done with hematology/oncology fellowship. Looking back at my training, it’s to fun to reflect on who I was and where I’ve come. The summer between my M1 and M2 year I strongly considered leaving medical school. I felt my strengths would be better suited in another industry. Then I shadowed an oncologist that summer and the rest was history. I matched at my #1 program pick for internal medicine residency the same year I found the planner community, and here we are today friends. I know this song is about relationships (or really, your inner resilience) shaping you. But for me, my career path has been the most defining part of my identity over my twenties. And I look back at all the stages, just like Ariana. Can you guess which caused me love, patience and pain?  #thankunext #thoughtsoncall #oncologyfellowshipchronicles #womeninmedicine

Not planner related, but... I love my job. I love getting to help create a support group for our young adult leukemia patients! Next week I’m meeting with our counterparts in pediatrics to get some inspiration for our adult group. It’s just something I wanted to do on a whim, but it makes me heart happy with joy to create this social support group! I have the best job ️️️️ #oncologyfellowshipchronicles #AYApatients #doitforthepatients #womeninmedicine

And so tomorrow starts the busiest work week I’ve had in two months including: 3 clinics, 2 presentations, one extra coverage shift, a new rotation, inpatient hospital consults, another block with overnight call (), meeting with my program director, research literature review & trying to squeeze in 3-4 morning workouts. But it ends with @mahngar1, so as long as I make it to Friday night, I’m golden. I hope there are enough hours in the week to through all of this *Holds breathe and dives back in.*

Oh how I wish I could turn the page back to this week ️. Had such a fun time with @mahngar1 and his family. They are so loving and laid back. I seriously have the best in-laws! And I feel so much love and protection over Baljit’s younger brothers. And it’s safe to safe to say I’m now the #FavoriteChild, huh Baljit?  #mahngarandwifeandfamily

No better time to work on your goals than the present . At the end of 2017 I was a sleep-deprived, hot mess barely surviving my first year of fellowship. I was not in the right space mentally to goal set. And then 2018 brought me back to life! Life is so much easier as a “senior” fellow. I’m kicking off the last month of 2018 with a BANG. More details this weekend. What are your goals for 2019? It’s never to early to work for a better tomorrow ️️️
