Hello dear friends! I looked at the date of my last post, and was literally flabbergasted. How have almost two months flown by since I last posted? Wow.
Thinking through the last two months, I’ve mostly been absent from this space because I’ve been so busy living. As I’ve mentioned, this past winter in Seattle was incredibly rough on me – in fact, I went to happy hour with a friend who I hadn’t seen in a few months, and she told me that I’m a completely different person this summer compared to last winter. Good to know I’m back to normal now 😉
If I’m not outside this summer, I’m filling my schedule to the brim with social activities and gatherings. And as exhausting as it can be to have no down time, this summer really has brought so much joy, freedom, laughter, and excitement into my life again. Whether it’s the sun, or the people I’m surrounding myself with, it’s been an incredible few months. Also can I just say: three more weeks. THREE more weeks until I’m Lauren Rice, MPH and eligible to sit for the RD exam.
IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE, I’D TELL YOU…
check out preserve and gather, and order their homemade yogurt w/fig granola
we have a stray cat roaming the neighborhood, who also happened to end up in our house by mistake. i named him tigger, and as much as my roommate likes to remind me that we can’t keep him, she also bought him a catnip plant (which clearly indicates that she secretly loves him)
i graduate in 3 weeks. THREE WEEKS. And 8 of my family members will be attending the ceremony
floating on south lake union, with my paddle board, is my favorite way to spend Seattle summers
i’ve fallen in love with running again, and plan to run another half marathon in the next few months!
my goals after I graduate: take guitar lessons, take a pottery class, and go on a solo international trip
i’ve been trying to learn the dance to thriller – but thus far, my efforts are futile
heartbreak, and immense joy, can and do coexist
i dream about owning a fluffy white pomeranian or chihuahua named ‘killer’. you never know…he/she may end up on my instagram one day
i leave for diabetes summer camp for an entire week! i need a camp counselor name…right now, the winner is ‘sprout’
Let’s have a virtual coffee date:
- Have you ever done a solo trip?
- What is your favorite song to jam out to in the car right now?
- What is your future pet’s name?
