Ugh this question. The Gram stain and purple made me thing Staph aureus, but it also mentions "budding" and "elliptical" (SA is a coccus). Additionally, SA is not a common UTI infection while Candida is.

Annoying because of the Gram stain and purple descriptor.

From quora: "when decolourizer is added, the crystal violet taken up by yeast cells is retained." https://www.quora.com/Why-does-a-yeast-cell-give-Gram-positive-reaction

melanoma  Also we can recognize Staph aureus for the beta hemolysis in a blood agar +1
