Doctors that you Need as a Young Adult

Saturday, January 28, 2017

PCP: You need a PCP for yearly physicals and you can also go here or to a store like Walgreens for things such as flu shots.

Obgyn: Women need these doctors who specialize in the female reproductive system. They will check for cervical cancer and make sure things are normal with your reproductive system.


Any specialist you may need such as psychiatrist, dermatologist etc.

The majority of these professionals you need to see once a year, you should get a cleaning from the dentist twice a year and go to specialists as much as needed.

For my frequent readers I will be taking a break for blogging for a few months to focus on some other projects. You can keep in contact with me here or through my social media accounts.


My Normal Makeup Routine

Monday, January 16, 2017

For everyday I use these products:

I always start with a clean face and apply my Ambi even and clear facial lotion.
I apply Mac select cover up (concealer around my eyes) because I have dark circles. I don’t apply a full face of make up ever.

On my eyebrows I use a Revlon color stay eye liner pencil in brown. Even though my hair is black it isn’t jet black like it appears, the black is overpowering and brown is softer and looks more realistic. Also, because my brows are thin in some places I brush in Tinter brow gel by Anastasia.

I apply blush, which ranges in colors, but I use a basic CoverGirl pink most days and brush it on the cheek bone.

For mascara I use Cover girl Lash blast volume in Very Black. If I am going for bigger lashes I also apply Mac Zoom Fast Black Lash on top of the Cover girl.

This look is perfect to add a polished look for a normal day without going over board. 


Interview Questions

Monday, January 9, 2017

When you go to an interview and they ask if you have any questions YOU SHOULD!

First, it shows interest in the position especially when you ask questions that show you have done your research about the company and position. In a recent interview I asked how the restructuring in the organization would impact the department I was interviewing for.

Second, you need to make sure that this company is one you would like to work as a part of. At this point in my career I want to learn transferable skills and get experience so I ask about mentorship, if they do any activities to foster career development and if there is room for advancement in the department and what that looks like. Below are some additional questions that may be helpful during your next interview:

How does the company evaluate performance?

Is there anything about my application that concerns you?

What are the next steps in the interview process?

Ask about a typical day. Is there a typical day or is the day project based?


GRE Guide

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

I know that lots of people are interested in going to graduate school. Many programs accept the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) for admissions. Your entire application will include your transcripts, letters of recommendation, personal statement and other activities such as volunteering, organizations you are involved in and leadership positions. The GRE is also an important part of your application. It is a standard test all applicants must take.

What does it test?

Do not be afraid. The GRE tests:
  • verbal reasoning
  • quantitative reasoning
  • analytical writing
You can get more information about the test from the official website here. I suggest you read everything here before getting started with your studying. You will learn about specific topics as well as time constraints.

How I Studied

I studied over one summer using a Princeton Review GRE Book. I studied for maybe 3 hours a day and I took a day off each week because I was doing research. The most important thing is to stay consistent and get through the entire book. I took the tests that came with the book as well. In addition to this, there are many free resources out there. I suggest playing word games to help increase your vocabulary knowledge.

After taking the test you will get a range so no need to stress about how you did. With this preparation and making sure that I went over problem areas instead of focusing on what I do well with (which is the analytical portion), I got a good score and only took the test once. I got into many Public Health graduate school programs using this score including two that are ranked top 10 according to US News rankings.

Good luck with your future endeavors.
