I noticed that I had been trying and failing so hard at trying to keep this updated, with my last post published in September and covering stuff that occurred in February...so at this point I'm just going to give up and start fresh!
It is now March 2018. What has happened since last year? I'll summarize with the one greatest thing that happened each month.
Went snowy camping in Yosemite and it was the best. Nearly empty park. This has triggered my lust for traveling anywhere during the off-season.
Hosted a paper-flower making demo with my bff "S" at Macy's Union Square! It was packed, it was my first time hosting, and it was a blast.
Some friends got married, I coordinated the wedding with S, and it was FLAWLESS. Since then, we've started It's Handled, our new baby. Hire us for day-of wedding coordinating/decor/DIY whatever you want!
Went to Montana with my parents and it is literally one of my top favoritest most beautifulest places traveled, of all time.
Did a lot in July. Went to LA, got a tattoo with my other bff "J", went to Portland, hosted my cousin Mo from Philly, did a lot of touristy SF things.
Went to LA again for Hans Zimmer in concert, but best of all, I started nursing school! Also, became a vegan.
Nothing particularly exciting. Here's me flipping off some friends who got to go to Chicago for a wedding while I did a lot of studying.
My other bff "K" threw a Harry Potter themed Halloween party, which was the best thing ever.
After 8 years of dating, my dad and bf have finally bonded...over motorcycles. Also, bf and I spent Thanksgiving in a paid room in downtown SF due to my work obligations, and it was actually quite enjoyable.
Successfully finished my first semester of nursing school with A's and B's! Spent a relaxing holiday in Roseville, drank a lot, slept a lot, went to my first hockey game, and completed motorcycle safety training!
Went to Utah with bf and a friend, also during off-season, which I HIGHLY recommend. Got my M1, started my 2nd semester of nursing school.
School has been particularly challenging. I did get to spend one Saturday getting drunk at brunch and going bowling with some classmates, which was really fun. It's rare that our schedules align besides the fact that my clinical group from semester 1 has stayed so close! <3
Now it's March 2018. It's not over yet, but this week marks the beginning of finals week! My program splits into two parts and I got 9 weeks of OB, then 9 weeks of Peds. I'm just about done with my OB rotation, then I get started with a week of Peds before going on Spring Break! Can't wait for break. I've just been grinding so hard and can't wait to do nothing.
