Twenty-something recent grad school graduate and young student affairs professional exploring life and embracing a quarter-life crisis in Chicago. After lots of time searching, I'm finally figuring out who I am, where I'm going, and how to get there. This is a visual representation of that journey: things that inspire me, things I love, and things that teach me something new. Join me. Curated by Katerina Beth.
More about me: Dancer. Pescetarian. Pretend Chef. Northwestern University Double Alumna (BA and MS). Lifelong Learner. Midwesterner through and through with a longing for both New England and the Pacific Northwest.
Lots of exciting things are happening in my life right now, which is a refreshing change.
I have a meeting with the advisor of the grad school program I was accepted to next Tuesday to go over registration options, as well as paid job/internship options that would help offset tuition. I’m still not 100% sure I’m going to start the program this fall, but this will help me decide.
I finally heard back from one of the many jobs I applied to, and I have a teleconference interview with a medical school next Friday for a job I applied to working with medical/health professions students in an administrative setting.
The local dance concert fundraiser I choreograph for opens tonight. My piece looks great, so I’m really excited about it (actually, all the pieces look great). I’m not in the show, so it’ll be nice just to sit back and watch and enjoy it without the stress of performing.
My cholesterol results came back yesterday worse than they’ve ever been…not sure how since I’ve been consciously trying to make changes, but once again I have a renewed dedication to eating well and exercising regularly. I did an advanced dancer’s pilates class yesterday for just 15 minutes and I’m sore but feel awesome.
I was a medical volunteer at the marathon today and it was an awesome experience. I saw the first male and female finisher cross the line, and helped a few injured runners. Not sure if I’ll do it again next year or not (it was a long day. I’ve been up since 3am and probably walked 15 miles during the day), but I’m glad I did it this year. And I got a sweet Nike jacket.
