Update on Life 4/9/16

I decided to do a mini update on certain parts of my life I don’t share as personally with you all. Things have been really up and down, good moods, bad moods, body positive, and shitty days as well. But I wouldn’t be human if I had the “perfect” life. So here we go:

College:

I’m doing very well academically, I am now apart of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and made the Dean’s List! I currently am taking Chemistry plus a weekly lab, Psychology, World History, Theatre and an online Medical Terminology class. May not seem like much, but the work does pile on if you don’t manage your time wisely. I am doing my best to keep my GPA up to increase my chances of getting into a very competitive dietetic internship after I graduate. I’m hoping to get a job this summer working in a nursing home or hospital to build my experience.

Friends:

I am not the biggest social butterfly out there. That doesn’t mean I don’t like hanging out with people, just not every night like majority of the people here. I prefer having a few close friends as opposed to a large group, it just feels more personal and I like having those special people that really understand me. I also have a hard time finding people that like the same things I do, but I still have 3 more years to meet so many different people. I am really close now with my roommate, Michaela, and we are even rooming together next year!

 
Dating:

Nope.

Family:

I miss them so much. I find myself getting homesick a lot and wanting to sleep in my own bed and wake up being home. I have a very close relationship to my parents, especially my mom who has always been the shoulder to cry on. But I know I am growing up and time away is sometimes MUCH NEEDED. I do like to see my dad at least once a week because he drives to work near my college (we only live 45 mins away). I also am in desperate need of some lovin from my puppy and kitteh 😦 (I’m home for the weekend so my life is complete) 

Recovery:

I think I have mentioned this a few times but I am moving past that phase of “recovery” and moving onto LIFE. I don’t define myself as “a recovery solider” or “someone that had an eating disorder”. Do you still call yourself a fetus? I sure hope not, because sorry to break it to you but you are outta the womb and you just gotta blossom. I am Emily. I will create who I am today and for the rest of my life. Healthy, happy, strong, and using what I know to help others do the same 😉

Fitness:

Still lifting. Still little cardio. I currently lift either 3-5 days a week with maybe 1-2 days of cardio like HIIT for 15 minutes or some elliptical work. To be honest, I only do cardio if I’m feeling it. I personally find going for a long walk much more enjoyable for me. And hey, everyone is different! I’m maintaining my weight doing what I do and I am cool with dat. My focus is improving the weight I lift and getting a bit stronger. Yeah, some days I wish I looked a certain way or had a certain body type… but you can’t wish for curly hair if you were born with straight right? GENETICS YO. Sorry, I’m using a lot of hella good metaphors.  

Random Things:

My body is adapting to getting up at the crack of dawn, so bye bye sleeping in on the weekends!

I accidentally wrote “Committee of Pubic Safety” on my history exam instead of PUBLIC. I still made an A  😀

Literally could not sleep when I saw the season finale of The Walking Dead.

My nut butter stash is strangely low so please comment some of your favorites!!!!

If you are still reading… I love you ❤

I want to move to Arizona (or somewhere out west) when I graduate because I love the warm and sunny climate. Any one live out there and can offer me some advice if you like it or not??

    Keep working hard for that internship! From one dietetic student to another, I know exactly how challenging and intensive the coursework can be. I thought I had no chance in the world at an internship, but hard work pays off. Good luck girl!

    I’ve lived in Portland my whole life and absolutely love it. It’s got a little bit of everything; my house is ten minutes away from the city and an hour away from the beach AND the mountain! You can make anything a day trip, which is awesome. Also, there’s tons of cool places to hike and explore nearby…basically, I love it. There’s something for everyone 🙂
