Stethoscope dreams + Parisian glamour
Bonjour! The name is, Stacy Annette Gonzalez. Welcome to my blog, Med à la Mode. Here you will find the musings of a PreMed student, writing to keep the inner forces in harmonious balance. I started this blog to document my journey through my PreMed studies and medical school, to share with you my thoughts, experiences and challenges as I brave this path, all the while empowering women. You don’t have to be a prodigy to be a doctor; you will find that hard work and passion is all it takes. And heart, lot’s of it….you can’t forget to take that with you. Time will pass no matter what you decide to do, “time will pass no matter what you decide to do,” remember that. You might as well do it while you are alive. My hope is that this blog will inspire you and guide you to your chosen mission in this world, whatever that may be.
Aside from medicine, and my other passions, a particular one is photography. It has helped me get through PreMed and allowed me to share and involve different people in my art work. By sharing the eternalized moments I capture of people, places and nature, I hope to contribute to the culture and lifestyle that our world has cultivated. There is endless amounts of knowledge tucked away in a photograph; “A picture tells a thousand words,” is a quote I stand by. One picture can show you love, grief, happiness, anger, as well as the beauty of our world and the intricate and creative mind that is behind it. A photograph is an artifact that you can go back to time and again like a favorite film; gently leaning you back into those times, smells, feelings and memories.
Lastly, I’m a Oeonophile: an individual who enjoys wines. Learning & tasting wines is a favourite guilty pleasure of mine. Wine carries an abundance of history in a sip and is very cultural custom that is unifying. It is also a powerful liquid tonic, with the potential to add a lot to the vitality of your life in terms of health. So, voila! Here I play the face of the creator to guide & inspire– to make becoming a doctor, taking beautiful images, making a difference while enjoying a fine bottle of wine in a frock or camisole. Follow me on my greatest adventure!
