Time to shine at Penn.

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of things. I went to New York, I went to DC, I finished my half marathon, and I wrapped up my bible study class. Campus is emptying out for the summer (I see parents loading up their kids’ dorm rooms every day now!). Things are definitely winding down as my first year at Penn is coming to an end.

One month to go!

Some pictures from the Time to Shine celebration:

Train and John Legend performed some rockin’ music against the backdrop of Philadelphia downtown. We grabbed some free foods, sat down in the grass, and enjoyed the beautiful weekend.

Why didn’t anyone tell me how beautiful Philadelphia is? Especially in the spring. Flowers, the sky, cobblestone streets. When I have time to look around and actually take in the scene (situational awareness haha) I fall in love with this city all over again.


  1. penn seems like it ended up being a great fit for you!! remember when you were still deciding where to go? can't believe it's been a whole year and you're almost done with first year! congrats :)

    1. I know! Time has flown by so quickly. I remembered you saying you wanted to break 2 hours at the Houston Half in 2013. That seemed so far away and now it's already come and gone.

  2. Yesle ,Your blog is great. I was just randomly researching about dentists in NYC and found your blog. Great effort you are putting up here.
    Respect and best wishes from a dentist in Gilbert. Keep sharing great stuff.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Dr. Nimri! :) It's like an online journal for me to constantly remind myself how lucky I am to be in dental school.
