My best friend came and accomplished everything she set out to. She was was here for me through my surgery Monday when I couldn't do ANYTHING for myself, so I'm super proud and excited to be well enough to come show her love! Miss Black UofL pageant 2nd runner up! #haitianprincess #bestfran #missblackuofl
When the first thing they ask you at 5:00 AM is "Do you have a living will?" 😱....it's TOO early, my eyes are a nice hue of "stop sign red", the baggage under my eyes can comfortably accommodate a 7 day vacation, and my belly button is touching my back!!! 😫 Blood pressure is up, weight is down....welcome to the OTHER side of medicine! All smiles though! πŸ™ŒπŸΎ #fighter #beastmode
In all honesty, I'm ready for this ordeal to be over, but I think today is the first time I've truly come to terms with it. I'm so blessed to have people in my life like Nino to remind me to count it ALL joy. Side note: Surgeries are billed on a "per paper towel usage" basis...so bring your own paper towels πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
In honor of Pi Day, I whipped up this beauty. It's a sweet and creamy Daniel Fast friendly Vegan Sugar free Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake (that was a lot πŸ˜‚). I am a TRUE foodie and I love all things sugary and fattening and this cheesecake will literally make you rethink your entire carnivorous life. ....😱But How Sway?!?! A true scientist can find a way around ANY "off-limit" ingredient. But I got y'all!!!! I'll be posting the recipe for this and my cashew ricotta cheese lasagna on my blog (link in the bio) after my exam Friday 😫 😫

Guess who studied until 1:00 AM and came home to make a Daniel Fast Friendly Vegan "Cashew Ricotta Cheese" Lasagna! The recipe will be up on my blog soon #beautyandthemd (link in my bio). She has the soul of a southern belle, brain of a doctor, heart of gold, spirit of the lord, and hands of Cassius (lol)....she will not be stopped. I just know she better go to sleep soon because it IS exam week. 😫 #vegan #veganrecipes #danielfast #lasagna #medstudent #mealprep
This is what weekly grocery shopping looks like on a 46 day Daniel fast! I know it it doesn't look like much but trust, I make magic happen in the kitchen πŸ˜‰everything on sale and the manager is showing me love! Also, my standardized (mock) patient is here. I'm in here like " Mmmmhmmm Karen Duffy, what you in here getting? You know I just counseled you on diet and fitness Wednesday" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I'm TOO silly
MD, is that you?
TIME: The Kalief Browder Story. This 6 part documentary must be seen. If you thought the "justice system" was working (I'm not sure how you could)...if you agree with Rudy Giuliani (now an adviser to the White House) or Trump in stop and frisk...watch this. Stop and frisk has obviously fooled some of you into thinking it's a means to keep you safer but it is truly a new Jim Crow. What does it solve? They're locking our people up in maximum security prisons like Rikers Island, setting bails that they KNOW we can't afford so these lawfully innocent people are sitting in hell for years and many of them dying. There's so much I want to say about this but you seriously need to watch it for yourself....but please, as you're watching this in disgust at the justice system and how it has failed young Kalief who is no longer with us, remember that these things are happening this very moment. This story is not the exception, this is the RULE. #kaliefbrowder #rikersisland #rudygiuliani #corruptsystem #stopandfrisk #theprogram #jayz
Knowing Illinois drivers, I'm sure they adjusted (read bumped/pushed) my car a few times to fit into this parking spot. How do you expect me to get out with a car behind me?! Learn your place and get in where you fit in...and this was NOT it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
I will restore to you the wasted years. I will give you back the years your sin stole from you. Joel 2:25 True happiness! #46DayFast #Day9 #itrustyoulord #takemeback
HOOOOLLLY! It's my PAPA's birthday! We've been down since the summer of 91 and he is hands down the funniest/craziest person I know! I know he's out here somewhere turning all the way up! πŸ˜‚β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ
A stranger stopped me to ask why I had a tattoo on my forehead today, and although I was SO tempted to say THUG LIFE, I had to tell him about Ash Wednesday. Today, we begin the season of lent, which marks 46 days of prayer and fasting before the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Today, I have committed to a season of sacrifice and am fasting from all of the THINGS that I love/ the THINGS that have control over me. This season will be trying, as I've committed to some drastic changes.... but I'm reminded that if I am faithful over a few things, God will make me ruler over many! Don't take it personal if I hit you with the Matthew 25:12 πŸ™ŒπŸΎ
