Happy Friday everyone!!
This past week has been study central, but also a lot of fun! Living with awesome roommates just makes every day a little brighter. Even when I have to be studying, I get little breaks for laughter and walks and puppy cuddles.
I have a Respiratory exam this morning, then I’m hopping in the car with my brother and his friend to drive up to Notre Dame! I used to go up to so many football games when I worked a regular schedule, but now that I’m in school I usually can only make one each year. I am SO excited!!
Here are my favorites this Friday!
I’ve been drinking hot coffee each morning, but recently I’ve been putting it in the fridge and drinking it cold! I love iced coffee so I don’t know why I didn’t make it at home earlier. Bonus points: less stains on my teeth. All the coffee is finally taking a toll on them! Any favorite teeth whitening systems to recommend?
Be As You Are by Mike Posner
This song is so beautiful and also has such a great message. It’s on some of my yoga playlists but I listen to it at home all the time too.
Teaching my first official yoga class!
I subbed for my studio owner’s Slow Power class Wednesday morning and it was so fun!! It was so strange to be the only one there, unlock the doors, and check everyone in, but it went so well. I went through my own practice for an hour beforehand which was a great way to warm up and get my mind in the yoga-game. I’m getting more and more comfortable with each class I teach and got great feedback from the students. I’m on the schedule next Thursday and Friday nights for any locals!
Skinny Coconut Oil has new skincare products!
I have tried Skinny Coconut Oil’s regular coconut oil for cooking before, but was so excited when they sent me some of their new skincare line! Using coconut oil is so trendy right now, so I was excited to see what the fuss was about. I love using it as moisturizer and make up remover — it’s gotten one of my dry patches to go away in just two days! I even tried oil pulling again this morning, which went a little bit better than int he past because theirs is slightly minty which makes the process a lot more pleasant.

Only problem with using coconut oil on my body? The dogs LOVE it!! I guess it’s not a problem — I just get a lot more kisses:)
Seattle in November!
We got approval from school for all three of the current OSR reps to attend the national AAMC conference in Seattle this November and I can’t wait!! I’ve never been to Seattle – any must-dos in my spare time? We are also submitting a poster to present, so fingers crossed that it gets accepted. It’s on the drastic drops in depression and anxiety rates of second year students that SLUSOM saw last year after some new initiatives. I’m always so proud of my school and the work it does to keep students healthy.
Notre Dame this weekend!
It somehow worked out that the one weekend that worked with my schedule happened to be the same weekend tons of my friends are going up, too! I’ll get to see some college roommates and other friends, including Lauren (remember her from Dallas!?), my little brother that lives in Minneapolis, and even the kids I nannied in Louisville!! They are a Michigan State family, so it’ll be a rivalry, but I just cannot wait to squeeze those little cuties. GO IRISH!
Alright, that’s it for today. Have a great weekend!!
