Life Flies By

Happy late Friday night! Well, I am FINISHED with my classes. I have finished high school. Eep!! I took my last final (Econ, bleh) yesterday *I had a window seat, and it was raining, and the curtain was open, and it was great* I think my finals went pretty well, but I will get all of my grades by next Wednesday.

I can’t even put into words how happy I am to be done with this part of my schooling career. Just…well…15 more years minimum. >4 years undergrad (at Albion College!), 4 years of med school, 5 years of general surgery residency, and 2 years of pediatric surgery fellowship< That’s my plan for now at least.

So here’s a picture from the beginning of finals week…


If I look exhausted…it’s because I was

And a picture from the end of finals…




This morning, I was super lazy and watched TV all morning before I had to venture out into the down pour to go volunteer at the hospital. But it’s okay because I haven’t done that (well at least guilt free) for awhile. Starting Monday, I have A LOT to do, at least it feels that way.

Let’s see…finish Albion placement tests, schedule out some blog posts and *hopefully* get some written, clean my room, organize all my school stuff from the last four years, clean out my clothes and see what I need to get, make a college supply list…

Okay, okay that’s not all happening on Monday, thank goodness. But I do feel like I need to get it all down on paper and really organize it in my mind to see what I need to get done this summer. I am also really excited to be able to workout consistently now that school is done. That should feel good.

Even though I have finished my classes, I have to wait until June 3rd to graduate. Oh! That brings a whole other list of things I have to work on: plan decorations for grad party, find dress for graduation, plan food for party, finish learning my piano pieces for my senior recital.

So yes, I will probably be just as busy if not more than when I was in school, but I love, love, love this kind of stuff so I am ready to get started!! Also, it has been raining almost nonstop for the last two days and is supposed to keep raining the entire weekend. IT’S PERFECT!!!

Also (final “also”, I promise), I wanted to say congratulations to my cousin who graduated from college today!! (Even though he doesn’t read this:D)

Have a safe weekend, friends <3

Just a quick update

Hello to everyone reading this:)

School has taken over my life once again.

It is a little bit crazy around here right now!

What were we doing...

What were we doing…


First day of school:)

I really enjoy my class schedule and professors this semester so even though it’s crazy, those are college classes for ya. And even though school is a big priority, I have been able to spend time with my counselor friends (who are another big priority) several weekends since school started. We have had great times hiking, eating food, playing Apples to Apples, and talking at various people’s homes.

It has been a fantastic senior year so far, in large part because of the time I get to spend with them. Camp people are special people<3

This coming weekend, I have the opportunity to visit my Ann Arbor friend on Friday. On Saturday we are going to a college visit together. After the visit we are driving down to Columbus for yet another camp party:) I think this is the most I have seen camp people outside of camp, ever. Pretty soon though we won’t see each other quite as much as life has a way of living. So we are taking every opportunity we can now.

I am still enjoying riding lessons and volunteering in the ER. I hope to start piano lessons again this week after summer break. I am also trying to spend as much time with family as I can. My school year life has begun–busy, stressful, exciting–and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Update on Life

Good morning. Its Friday! This week has seemed very long, and all of a sudden its Friday. I feel like I have a lot to catch you up on about my week. Sorry that I didn’t post yesterday. I also didn’t get a workout in. On Wednesdays, I don’t plan on working out, I think I said that somewhere else too.

Yesterday, I had full intentions of getting a half mile in and 25-50 air squats like the challenge says. But I couldn’t do it. We didn’t get home until about 5:30 and I had to leave again at 5:50 because I had flute choir.

That’s another thing from my week! I joined a flute choir that my grandma is apart of. It isn’t very big. We had maybe six people yesterday, but we were missing about 5. So 11 people…approximately. I have so much fun. I love playing with other people in different parts. If I mess up, I know that the others will still sound amazing. 😀 Ha, ha. One of the ladies brought these beautiful crocheted necklaces yesterday for all of us. I chose one that is purple and silver and white. At first, they look beaded. They are just gorgeous. I will try to get a picture in here tomorrow maybe. Last week was my first week. Most people start on the normal flute, a C flute. There are also Alto flutes and bass flutes. There are some others that are not as common. Last week, I got to play the bass flute. This week I got to play the alto flute. They are so much fun to play. I did enjoy playing the alto flute more than the bass flute, though. It is easier to hold and easier to get the high notes out.

On Wednesday,  I took my ACT compass test, the admission test to get into the College Credit Plus program. It changed from the PSEOP to the College Credit Plus. There are a few changes but they are pretty boring unless you are thinking of doing the program. So if you want more info, I would be happy to help. email me at I passed! I scored high enough to not take a reading class. I scored high enough to get into the higher level writing. I scored ‘eh’ on math. Basically, I am taking a math class 1st semester to get me up to college level math. I think. Then the next semester will be Algebra 2. I think. I will find out more in May when I have my guidance session.

Ok, enough of my boring life facts:) I will have a nice workout tonight, get some pictures of interesting things for you, and get back to you tomorrow!
