I've got my two hardest exams this weekend. One over 6 chapters of Anatomy & Physiology and the other over 9 labs. For some strange reason they decided to make these into two tests and torture us twice instead of getting it all over with at once.
One day - Two points of view
I almost forgot that I even had a blog. Since I got back from Colorado life has been full of all sorts of new things. As soon as I landed I pretty much had to hit the ground running to get last minute things together for school - books and stuff for lab and things like that.
When I lived in the country of Sweden as a child my Swedish teacher used to say to us in particularly wet, cold, or snowy days that there was no bad weather - only bad clothes.
10,000ft elevation is NO joke. And even though I was in Denver for the weekend I have still be feeling pretty winded and headachey. I highly recommend buying yourself some squished oxygen - aka those mini tanks of compressed air that you can sip on while you acclimate. It's like $15 a can, but it's honestly helped temper some of the panic I have felt over not being able to breathe well.

Whenever I travel, I try my hardest to meet up with friends as I journey to my final destination.

I'm standing out on the sidewalk with a backpack on my back, suitcase by my side, and an icy cold kombucha in my hand. It's 8:30am. Let's do this thing.
You haven't lived until you've jogged out into the snow at 29 degrees in your bare feet and swimsuit to take part in an afternoon jacuzzi soak while basking in the glow of the rocky mountains. My little sister and I had a girl's day so we built a puzzle, listened to music, soaked in … Continue reading Unsteady Uproot – “To ski or not to ski” (Wednesday, January 8th)
Never have I ever... spent a Christmas all by myself before. Last year I went from having family AND a boyfriend to spend the holidays with to this year being stuck in Texas and being totally, completely alone.
