I'm a few months into clinical rotations and getting used to wearing real people clothes to work each day. Long time readers remember that I used to share my work outfit every day back in my former marketing life (feels like a lifetime ago!). It was nice to be able to wear workout clothes to class for a few years, but I really do enjoy putting together cute outfits! Getting dressed for work is different now for a few reasons - there are more restrictions to clothing as a med student, both . . .
Have you heard enough about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet!? I am an expert online shopper. Or more online looker. It's my time wasting activity of choice :) And maybe you'll relate - there is nothing more frustrating then getting really excited about a sale, only to realize everything is still insanely expensive. Getting marked down to $400 is not helpful for me! So today I'm sharing some great stuff that's actually under $100 - a little more doable for my current budget. The . . .
Happy 4th everyone! I happily have the day off and I think we may try to get to a pool for most of the day, although I don't need any more sun after Florida this past weekend. Jake Owen is playing at Fair St. Louis tonight, so if we're in the mood we may brave the crowds. I hope you have some fun plans! There are some great sales today!! I'm sharing my current favs from each store, and had trouble limiting it to just this much!! Have to use all my willpower to not buy it all. Let me know . . .
Inpatient psychiatry is a really interesting place to start rotations. The patients have to be physically stable to be placed on the psych floor, so I haven't had to perform a physical exam. The psych version of a physical exam is called a mental status exam, which assesses a patient's cognition, thought process, insight, etc. The diagnoses we've seen include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, borderline personality disorder, and drug-induced psychosis. We just . . .
Hi from Indianapolis! My uncle recently had some major surgery (he's doing well), so my aunt, mom and I are up here to spend some time with him, but I get the bonus of seeing my best friend too! She's having a little meeting/Christmas gift exchange with the owners of the yoga studio she manages (If you're in Indy you MUST go to The Hot Room) so I'm sipping on a green juice and popping in for a quick block post. Outfits for holiday parties are so fun. I always wish I had more fancy . . .
How is everyone? Still full? Out shopping already? My family has never been into the Black Friday shopping. I'm not into early mornings and crazy crowds. But Cyber Monday? That I can get into. I do almost all of my shopping online. And luckily now it's pretty much just awesome sales all weekend, so no need to wait until Monday! I've gathered some of my current favorites for you guys, and I'll be eyeing the sales to see if there are some great steals! Teri put together a "sales" page on . . .
Hey, friends! Sorry to disappear for a little while. I tried to record a yoga video earlier in the week, but after two attempts it wasn't working so I gave up and decided to get back to studying. I'll try to record it again this weekend and share! We have a test almost every Friday for the next couple of months, so life is busy! It's going well though, and I love what I'm learning. This weekend I have some time to catch up on studying for boards, am teaching two yoga classes, and have . . .
Happy Friday!! How was your week?? Mine was pretty busy with events every night. That makes it fly by, but means I didn't have enough time to study! This weekend will be ALL about the studying - our respiratory final is next Friday. Last night I got to go to the Cardinals game with some friends. It might be the last game I see this season - the wild card race is looking kinda iffy for us! But it was an exciting walk-off win and a great night with friends. Here are my Friday Favorites . . .
Hi everyone! Long time no talk. I had a test this week, and yoga teacher training all last weekend meant time was at a premium. But I'm back, and ready to talk about Fall Clothes! A lot of the fall new arrivals came out last week, which means I spent too much time browsing and creating shopping bags that I'll never actually purchase. But it's nice to make wish lists and watch for sales, right? Right now I've got clinic clothes on my mind, since that's in my very near future. That means work . . .
Current Mood: hoping I can squeeze in a few beach days in Hilton Head before my summer is over! tank || dress || bikini || sandals || bag || sun hat || sunglasses || beach towel || pillow || chair || umbrella How did summer fly by so fast!? I had ALL these plans of things to get done and now suddenly I've only got a few weeks left before school starts again. I'm hoping I can push really hard on my work for the next two weeks and then use my final week for some (more - I've . . .
