Five Things Friday 7.31.15


It’s so strange…I’m home for at least four years. With my family. In my city. For medical school!! How awesome is that!?

Clare - Moving From Louisville

(saying bye to my Louisville apt)

Yesterday I got a little emotional on the drive home. We had spent almost five hours packing the Uhaul so I was too busy to really think about what was happening, but once I was driving out of the city I started to cry. I got to see Brittany right before I left which was…necessary because she’s the best, and I actually called and talked to JC for the first time since the break up which was really nice. I am really, really sad to leave Louisville and my life there, but I’m silmultaneously so happy to be here and finally starting school.

I can’t wait to get my new apartment set up and show you guys!! I am all unloaded but need to unpack and organize. I have so many DIY aspirations¬†and I’m sure few of them will ever become a reality…but it’s nice to dream!

Okay, let’s recap my week!

Five Things Making Me Happy:

My new apartment! I really love it, and will love it even more once I get unpacked. My room has more space than I expected, my roommate is really sweet, and I can’t wait to get settled in.

Chatting with Meg more. She is just the sweetest, most genuine, thoughtful, and positive person. Everything she does comes from such a good place, and while we are different in many ways, she is such a good friend. And also she has a really cute Canadian accent. <3<3

Spending a few days with my parents. They’re fun. And now I get to see them whenever I want!!!

I ordered new bedding!!! My sweet employers (from the nanny job) got me a gift certificate to West Elm when I left since they knew I’d be eyeing some new bedding. I was SO EXCITED. I was sick of my pink and green flower explosion and can’t wait to get the more neutral soft duvet in the mail.

Ummm I just found out VIA FACEBOOK that one of my post-bac classmates from UVA is going to be at SLU med with me!! How we didn’t figure this out earlier I don’t know, but I’m so excited to know someone. Plus he rocks. So now I’m super happy.

  • Your turn! What’s making you happy this week?
