Life Lately // April & May

Time sure flies fast!  May is my last full month of classes, to be followed by a week of finals in June and a few precious months of summer.  Since I haven't been posting around this little space too much, I thought I'd share a few snippets of how I spent April.

April was spent like every month these days, studying and not nearly enough.  Luckily spring days mean I get to enjoy the sunlight longer as well as all the beautiful blooms outside.  I feel like I've said this before, but I can't help it.  This seriously is the best part about spring!  It's even better, when someone special sends you a bunch to keep inside ;-)

Since February I've been volunteering as a health coach, and one of the nice things about the program is that the participants get fresh fruit and veggies to take home.  Last week there was a lot of leftover from a healthy eating food demonstration, so I got to take home some brussel sprouts and mushrooms.  Believe it or not, it was my first time trying both.  I roasted them up with all the other vegetables I had in the fridge, and they were delicious!

My online shopping continues.  I don't get out to the malls much at all these days, so I try to take advantage of online sales whenever I can.  Here's a few winner's from my last haul, and a beautiful floral blouse that I can't decide whether or not to keep.  The fit is a bit large in my normal size, but I love how the print just pops.

One of the things I'm looking forward with my summer break is the chance to do some non-medical reading.  If I don't get around to finishing this book, it will certainly make it's way to my list of summer reading.

Academically, April continued to be pretty challenging, but at least I can say my last standardized patient of the school year is behind me.  It wasn't flawless; however, I generally do pretty well on them regardless of my feelings afterwards.  Either way I have a finals and a group presentation to prepare for, so there's no time to dwell.  Medical school will teach you that.  Do what you can and move on.

And the sweetest little jar.  I've been wanting to get a Frenchie for quite some time.  It may not be breathing, but it still brings a bit of joy minus all the care and maintenance!

If I disappear again it's only because of finals, but I'm excited for lots more time for blogging this summer and sharing all my little trips and projects along the way!  Be sure to follow me on Instagram for bits of my life and style in between posts!  And thanks for reading and following along!

Have a great week!


  1. I would kill for a summer break but it sounDs like you deserve it. Only a few more weeks and you will be done with a year of medical school!

  2. I've really been wanting to read Love Does. Let me know what you think when you finish it!
