Hi Everyone! It’s certainly been a while since I’ve written; you could say I took a Summer hiatus. But no more! I realize it’s time to get my head back in the game and stay focused on this journey of mine. So much has happened since my last post in May. Realizing this was my last “real” summer – after all MS1 summer is spent on research and every other summer after that is nonexistent – I was determined to make the most of it.
In June I traveled to Puerto Rico. Absolutely amazing time! It was a gift to myself on gaining a med school acceptance as well as a celebration for my significant other who took (and passed!) his USMLE Step 1 board exam for med school.
July rolled around and like the previous 2 years, I competed in another Spartan Race. This was my 3rd Spartan Race and my 2nd time at this course – still however, it felt more physically and mentally challenging than any race I had ever done. Finishing was certainly an accomplishment! It took me 2 hours and 36 minutes of pain, sweat, moments of discouragement, fun, and finally VICTORY. At this point, I’m ready to call this a tradition. Looking forward to my 4th Spartan Race, hopefully next year!
Also in July, was a friend’s wedding and my 3rd wedding of the summer – side note: there has been more weddings and engagements this year than I’ve ever seen, I’m convinced there’s something in the water LOL. The wedding was in Florida, so it was cool to check out the state for the first time (although it rained most of the time we were there).
Finally, the month ended with a bang when I made that 8 hour drive/ move to good ole Ohio.
I enjoyed my summer, definitely made the most of it, now it’s time to get back in the grind. It’s funny, crazy, slightly frustrating, but no matter what season you’re in, where you are in your journey, there’s always going to be some obstacles.
I already had a curveball tossed my way since I’ve moved, but God is crazy faithful and so clutch for always having my back 😀
I’m very excited to share about the awesomeness that is OSU (Go Buckeyes!), my program and more. The journey continues!
