winter break wishlist

I’m flying home tomorrow! (Assuming that my flight doesn’t get delayed, anyway.) This wishlist is actually more of a “Things I’d Like To Get Done While I’m Home” sort of deal. I make them for pretty much every break I have and rarely ever get through half the list, but…it doesn’t hurt to be ambitious!

School-Related (because we all know a “break” during med school is just more time to finally catch up)

  • Finish gunner training every morning either on ellipticals or while hula hooping
  • 30-50 board questions every day
  • Study a section of Step Up every day
  • Study a section of Pathoma every day

People I Need To See

  • Family (includes Ninja :'( )
  • 6F & co.
  • Dave
  • Whitney/Becca
  • Sylvia/Mekala/Kaitlin/Elyse
  • People at TG


  • Train with Sam every day!
  • Pole classes at TG!
  • BJJ classes at KOA
  • 2-3 classes at South Bay Circus Arts
  • Strength-training of some sort (playground/body weight workouts)
  • Cut to 117 lbs (talllll order because it’s holidays/I’ll be surrounded by food/I’ve been eating like crap for the past 1.5 months and have no idea how much I even weigh at this point, but…potential competition in February!?)
  • Climb Mission Peak at least twice
  • Re-learn Liszt’s Un Sospiro
  • Come up with a piano part for Jerrod Niemann’s Only God Could Love You More, I Fight Dragons’ With You + also practice Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive
  • Learn the drum part for Muse’s Supermassive Black Hole

Food (yes, there needs to be a whole section for this)

  • Sushi
  • Viet sandwich + pho
  • Thai food
  • Korean BBQ
  • Carne asada fries
  • Burrito from La Vic’s
  • In N Out
  • A billion homemade meals with Jun (and everyone we invite over so we don’t turn into whales)
