Father’s Day, A Water Park & A Dinner Date

Late last week, I asked my dad what he wanted to do on Sunday for Father’s Day, and he replied: “Go paddle boarding again!” Sweeeeet. Clearly I was on board! Matt was out of town for the weekend on an epic guy’s weekend camping/canoeing trip, so it was just me and my dad this time. We had a blast and after about an hour of paddle boarding, Continue Reading …

Running Rock Creek Park & Free Yoga

Good morning! We had a stunning weekend weather-wise here in DC — a very nice reprieve after the past week of unbearable steaminess! I celebrated on Saturday morning by going for a run. :) My running buddy Sokphal and I decided to mix things up and go running in Rock Creek Park! I’d never run in Rock Creek before — it was pretty! Continue Reading …

New Packed Lunches & Dinner Prep

Good morning! I’ve settled in to a new busy routine here in DC. I have to get up at 5:30 a.m. every day to get ready, eat breakfast, publish my blog/catch up on emails and make it to my internship by 7 a.m., but that means I’m home around 4 or so, which is nice. I’ve been using my time in the late afternoons before exercising and dinner and Continue Reading …

DC by Foot & An Epic Picnic

Morning, friends! I’ve been having a wonderful weekend so far. The weather yesterday was stunning! Finally the humidity let up. As you guys know, while in Chapel Hill I was going to Franklin Street Yoga regularly (at least once per week, sometimes twice). Since moving back to DC a month ago I’ve only done yoga once, and boy does my body Continue Reading …

New Apartment Tour & A Run

Good morning, friends! It’s official — Matt and I are 100% unpacked and set up in our new apartment here in the DC area. Hooray! It’s so nice to have that done. Want the tour? :) We went from a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom in NC to a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom here in DC so we were a little worried about everything fitting, but between donating a lot Continue Reading …

Goodbye, Biochem!

Guess what, friends? Today I have my very last exam of graduate school! Woohoo!!! Our biochem final exam is at noon. We had a review session at school yesterday, after which my classmate Maria and I stayed for a bit more studying, although we weren’t feeling very motivated. All of us are feeling rather wiped out at this point and tired of school, Continue Reading …

One Last Chapel Hill Bike Ride

Good morning! Matt and I had a wonderful last weekend here in Chapel Hill. If you’re just tuning in — I’m finishing up the coursework portion of my Masters of Public Health in Nutrition here at UNC-Chapel Hill (our last final exam is tomorrow — biochem!) and Matt and I are moving back up to DC on Thursday! I’ll be doing summer and fall Continue Reading …

Crunch Time

Morning! I’m in the midst of crunch time over here trying to finish up all our end of semester assignments. Yesterday I forced myself to focus and spent a solid 7 hours straight working on these module worksheets we have due today — they are prep for our clinical internship. I broke for lunch around 11, but unfortunately my laptop stayed with Continue Reading …
