Life Update

As I sit in this adorable coffee shop in Lexington, KY, avoiding all the things I really need to do and the rain (oh the rain!), I thought I would finally give everyone a life update. It’s been awhile and I’m actually quite sad because blogging has been the one thing I really do 100% for enjoyment. Well let’s see… I graduated! WHOOP! Finally I may actually be considered an adult (though I don’t feel like one and am not sure when I will, thoughts?) I have moved back to Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati and am so happy to be back in my hometown once again. Unfortunately, I was not accepted into Medical School this cycle and while this has immensely disappointed me, I am not discouraged! I am currently volunteering in the hospital and have applied for research positions! If anyone is out there who has been in the situation I would love to hear your experience! I have come to find out that taking a gap year is far from unusual and is actually more common then getting in the first round! I am definitely going to blog about my journey to give encouragement to those who may be in my position or who are in the process of applying to med-school now!

Now for some fun. I went to Hilton Head Island for the FIRST time. For all you east coasters I know this is a SHOCK, everyone seems to go there, right? At least everyone in my area does. Anyway I loved it and it was such a beautiful vacation spot. I know we are going there next year and I would love some suggestions for restaurants etc. from you lovely people! Here are some photos of our day trip to Savannah:

Lexington Blues


IMG_6714I was fortunate enough to go on a mid-week dinner date with boo. He was so adventurous and took me downtown to a little hole in the wall with the BEST macaroni. I love discovering new places to eat and hang out! Lime Stone Blue had a collection of different mimosas to try and I had to get the Rose with Lemonade! So refreshing! And then what’s dinner without dessert? We hit up the new Crank and Boom location in the warehouse district and devoured some Bourbon and Honey ice-cream. Talk about yum. If at anytime you are in the Lexington area you must stop in both these places! If not for the awesome food and drink then for the artsy photo-ops! 🙂
