The other day Theodora posted about getting back to her old blogging roots. Back in the day (5 lonnnng years ago), blogging was basically just life-casting. I wrote about what I did and what I ate each day. Some bloggers still do that, but in general it's fallen of style. Blogs are much more topical now, with focused posts instead of random daily life. Plus, I'm not a huge fan of sharing my every move because then the comparison and judgment starts. BUT recently since I've been bogged down . . .
I am in a total state of blog paralysis. I have so many things I want to write about that I just haven't written about any! Total bummer. I miss this space! Instead of focusing on one of the specific things I have in mind to write about, I'm just going to catch you all up on life a little bit. I need to clear out the junk so I can start writing again! At the moment I am lying on my bed trying to get through some emails from the past few weeks. I am a bit under the weather, but I picked . . .
I had a talk with a friend yesterday about priorities. He said mine appear to be very clear based on my actions. In his words..."Your family, learning cool medical stuff, passing your classes, staying healthy/yoga/eating right, and your wellness committee." I'd say that's pretty accurate, but he definitely left out my friendships and social time. He also left out tons of other things I want to be my priorities, including writing well on this blog, harp, some research opportunities etc. . . .
Oh hi, remember me? It's been two weeks since I last blogged. The longest time in my nearly six years. Whoops. I had a neuro test last Friday that just consumed me, then this past weekend I had a friend visiting and also was dealing with another friend's health issues and I was just not on my game. My friend just left town today and I'm trying to catch up with my life, get back into the swing of school, etc. You know when you need a weekend from your weekend? Yeah, that. (with my . . .
I am exhausted!! Anyone else? All of us? Some of my meetings ran long this past weekend, which cut into my study time, which means I didn't get as much done as I needed to and now I'm playing catch up all week. I'm actually not going to class this week, which isn't normally my style. Instead I'm choosing to go through the recordings of the lectures really slowly so I have time to look things up and make sure I get it fully before moving on. Neurology is intense!! Lots of looking at slices . . .
Want to know something awful? I didn't really think I'd hang out with many people in my medical school class. I had this terrible attitude going into it that I would be so much (5 years, gasp!) older than everyone, we wouldn't get along, and I'd just be sort of a loner that studied and get my work done. (Look! Friends!) I had heard while interviewing that most medical students don't go to class (this is a lie FYI. I'm sure it varies school to school, but I'd say it's 50/50 at SLU) so I, . . .
I feel like I have to start by saying this is NOT an April Fools joke! I actually woke up to a text message from a friend saying he was going to meet with his real estate agent to put an offer on a condo, and I got so excited! Literally got fooled THE MOMENT I woke up! I'm so bad at April Fools. Anyway, TGIF over here! We started Neurology this week and I have a lot to review this weekend. I knew Neurology would be an intense course, and it has proved true in just the first week. There is . . .
A few nights ago I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep. I was reminded recently that my big break up with my ex was almost exactly a year ago. To be honest, I don't even know what the date of the break up was. I know it was a Tuesday and I know it was the end of March, so I guess it's easy enough to figure out. A friend of mine is struggling with a break up right now, too. She's hurting and wishes it didn't have to be this way. She alternates between feeling free and relieved, and then . . .
I've got another round of screen shots for you! I think seeing what I take pictures of is a good insight to what I find inspiring or hilarious. Here are the previous posts: Screen Shots Round One || Screen Shots Round Two I just learned what "netflix and chill" really meant about a month ago.... haha:) <3 medicine jokes <3 Sent this to a fashionista friend. Sent this to a friend that was worried about a test! Yoga is magic. Sounds ideal. Meg posts are . . .
Did you all have a good weekend? I had such a great little break from school. I got lots of cleaning done (threw stuff away, YAY), spent time with friends, practiced my harp, got in a couple of workouts, watched Breaking Bad, and hung out with the fam. Just what I needed to feel refreshed going into Neurology today. Okay, time to tackle more limiting beliefs! I'm glad I've committed to doing these because they help keep the lessons from You Are A Badass fresh. Today I'll focus on my future . . .
