Boards and 4th of July

Boards and 4th of July

Last Wednesday, I took my first Board exam! I find out my score in a few weeks.

Most people are dreading the wait, but I am pretty happy not to have to think about it for a while!

A few of my friends and I drove down to Columbus and took the test, then our husbands/ boyfriends met us for some Fourth of July Festivities.

If you know me, you know that I am the most patriotic person EVER. I always cry when I hear the national anthem, and I am basically just obsessed with America. So, the fourth is one of my favorite holidays!

We were so excited to be done with that dang test!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!

Less than three weeks until boards!
  • This week I started using an old school alarm clock! I had no idea how much of a difference it would make for getting out of bed in the morning. I tend to get caught up scrolling on social media in the morning, but now I don’t keep my cell phone in my room, so I gotta get up!
  • My favorite instagram of the week is The Pod! I love seeing podiatrists from around the world.
  • This playlist is such a good summer vibe…
  • I listened to this podcast on my morning walk yesterday… horrible idea. It is so good, but terrifying!!! My walk turned into a sprint home 😂🏃🏼‍♀️. Despite my fears, I still highly recommend.
  • Whenever I take a practice exam, I right down any questions I have and then go back and answer them after the test. I have been using these notebooks, and I love them. Perfect size, and super cute!

I feel like summer has finally arrived in Ohio! So we had some fun this weekend.

Friday night we went to the Indians game, and we won. Woohoo!

On Saturday I went out to dinner for a girls’ night with my classmates.

Sunday we did a (much needed) deep clean of the the apartment. I have never been an organized person by nature, and neither is Andrew, so the house gets messy really fast. It feels so refreshing, so hopefully it lasts!

  • I’ve been having one of those weeks where I am SO tired! So this coffee has been getting me through.
  • We are going to an Indians game tonight, Might have to pick up this cutie for the game.
  • Fun Fact: Podiatry students get a pro discount with several shoe companies, including Brooks and Asics. So, I’ve been eyeballing these shoes for a while. Running and walking outside are keeping me sane during boards studying!
  • This article on productivity really put things into perspective.
  • If you’re interested in medicine, health, or just a positive attitude: this lady is killing it in all three categories. Her instagram is so motivating!
One of those days…

One of those days…

Monday started off with a bang! Literally. I blew a tire on the interstate 🤦🏼‍♀️

So yesterday and today have been spent ordering tires, driving around on a “donut” spare (which had a max speed of 50 mph), and wasting precious study time!

Not ideal when boards are a month away.

I also ordered by new tires from Costco. So, while I was waiting, I probably consumed 9847589047562398742 calories.

Here’s to tomorrow, and getting S$%* DONE!


PS- Get your tires checked regularly.

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend

Last weekend we flew out to Colorado to celebrate my brother’s high school graduation and my cousin’s baby shower!

It was so special being home with my family, even if it was only for a couple of days.

The whole gang! My brother and cousin both graduated with honors!
The sweet mama to be ❤️

Now, we are back in Ohio, and back to studying!

Spring Study Breaks

Spring Study Breaks

It’s finally starting to feel like spring here in Ohio!!

All my study breaks have been soaking up the sunshine, before I start studying for finals. (They start next week, pray I survive!)

Strolling’ around the city after a yoga class with a classmate.

The cutest brewery downtown ❤️
Their nachos were soooo yummy!
Jogging around the neighborhood

Alright back to studying…
