It's Fall After All
It's hard to be believe how quickly September flew by. Everyone told me fourth year would go by in a flash, but I never could have imagined that I would find myself two months into the semester this fast. It feels like yesterday that I was coming back from Connecticut after August break. This has been a tough semester. Clinical exams are always looming. Boards are complete but I am still waiting for my results. I scored an externship at Yale for a week which is exciting and super scary. I even have two GPR interviews coming up in the next few months.
One of the ways I love to de-stress and focus on something other than school is reading blogs. My favorites are the College Prepster, Gal Mets Glam and What Courtney Wore. These women have inspired me in every way- from what to wear to where to eat, how to organize my life and what new products to try. It is important for women to be able to share their thoughts and ideas with each other and I think blogging has given us a way to connect with and learn from each other.
I also am a serious Pinterest addict. I love finding recipes and testing them out in my kitchen. I have been trying to incorporate some Paleo meals into my life and this has been a great source of ideas. I have been buying organic chicken and grass-fed beef from Trader Joe's. I wish we had a Whole Foods closer, but I am thinking a trek out to Pasadena will be in the cards for the weekend so I can stock up on the non-perishable items that I need to make some Paleo desserts to keep my sweet tooth satisfied.
When I was younger I had a book called Freddy the Leaf which I am sure you can guess was about a leaf. He changes color and falls from the the tree. It was kind of a sad story, but it was also really beautiful. While spring is the time of rebirth, fall also feels like a new beginning to me. I am excited so wee what changes in my life come with the changing of the leaves.
