Coming off a post on relationships...let's talk about an amazing date night in NYC! My boyfriend told me a little before my birthday, on the phone when we were both frustrated that plans to see each other had gotten cancelled, that he wanted to take me to a broadway show for my birthday. He had wanted to wait and tell me in person, but decided over the phone would have to do. We both needed the pick me up since we were kinda down about not being together. He had to tell me because he . . .
Hey strangers! Between my internal medicine shelf exam last week and then a fun weekend away, I haven't checked in here in a while. The internal medicine exam was really hard, mostly because I didn't have as much time as I had wished. Each question required a lot of critical thinking, and I am not quick enough yet I guess! I gratefully was able to put it out of my head right away since I left almost immediately with my family to head to Notre Dame! Notre Dame We ran into the worst . . .
Forgive me while I ramble for a bit... What is it about the number 30? Every other year my birthday has been exciting, but suddenly I feel like I'm supposed to dread this one. I think turning 30 is an even bigger deal for me because I'm surrounded by younger classmates. And even though I attempt to combat it, I've definitely felt some of the society pressures leading up to my big 3-0. On a practical level, I feel like turning 30 means my clock is ticking. I'd love to have a family some . . .
Yesterday morning I gave a research presentation at my high school. My dean and I have been working with them for the past few months, and it's so fun to get to be back and see my old principal and teachers. It has been ten years!! Dress (old) - Similar | Cardigan | Flats - similar, similar | Necklace is White Plum | Dog not for sale ;) When I graduated from high school I was in the depths of my eating disorder. The teachers remember me that way -- as a very high achieving, perfectionist . . .
My blog is 6 years old today! That's so crazy to me. Is there anyone out there that has been around since the early days? Say hi!! The Early Days I started this blog fresh out of college. I had actually started a food blog once during my senior year of college but I didn't share it with anyone. Blogs don't work too well when you're too nervous to have anyone read them ;) I was 22 years old, starting my very first job as a product manager at a national shoe company, and was starving . . .
Happy birthday to me! A great gift was all of the advice you guys shared with me. I was surprised by how varying, practical, and yet contradictory the tips were! I love that they are from people both younger and older than 27, too. They are a great way to get me thinking a little deeper about my life and how I want to live it. Enjoy! You may feel like an adult, you may think you know who you are and what you stand for, but you are only just beginning. Be open and understand that . . .
