future doctor

Ah, the infamous question that pops during small talk of all kinds because people just genuinely want to know what you’re doing in life because they are nosy they care.  Post-baccalaureate programs are essentially intense focused programs that gear their participants (usually those who have already acquired a bachelor’s) into or toward a certain field.

Mipsters, Blipsters, Hipsters


Ahhhh shooooooot. Here’s another one! We have hipsters. We have blipsters (black hipsters). Now, we have mipsters (Muslim hipsters)!

It has been received with mix reviews… Now, I […]

White Girls by Oh Lordy: A Parody to “Royals” by Lorde


First, check out this parody below I thought it was hilarious and ironic considering what these ladies are talking about are kind of what Lorde is speaking against/about in a way, but it is funny nonetheless and makes fun of what a ton of people in my newsfeed gush about and do. What’s even funnier […]

No pain no gain!

I find myself sharing the same stories, saying the same things, feeling the same things. Here were my favorites from this week in all their descriptive and mirroring […]

Your ___ does stink. So fix it!


So there is this ad.   Yes, this is a real product and apparently it has rave reviews just like it says: I want to be the wonderful lady that I am and say that I will never purchase this product because I don’t defecate, I glitter BUT….It is too tempting. Plus, the advertisement is […]

Friday Night Eats


Oh my gosh I am so excited! Today has been a chill day studying, doing some yoga and all of sudden I had a craving to cook. So, I promptly grabbed my bags and headed to Trader Joe’s, Ralph’s, and Whole Foods in that order! I live right by all three so why not take […]

My unintentional exploitation of ‘white privilege’


I honestly don’t know what to title this, but hey, my name is Ashley and I have benefited from ‘white privilege’ unbeknownst to me. This has been bugging me lately since the race button has been pushed repeatedly over the last few weeks which has gotten me to thinking about my life as a woman […]

“My Lipstick Story” What we all have experienced
