1. I have a bike again! I finally ordered a Specialized Allez Race, and it is perfect.


  2. I had a pretty great hiking partner, too! 
    More pictures to follow sometime later.


  3. I went hiking this weekend in East Tennessee. 


  4. What a fantastic, delicious surprise in the mail today!


    Valentine linzers via littlerunnergurl, and a thank you to Mimi!


  5. Hey.


  6. "Bunkering down" for finals. Meheh.


  7. Update from the last time that I took this informative quiz
    Find a more detailed explanations of the various possible outcomes here.


  8. My hair was too much, so I cut it off. 


  9. Self, currently


  10. chula replied to your quote: If your arms were tanner you would have fireman’s…

    Oooh what? Lemme see

    Ok, well I found a picture of me with a kitten from four years ago, back when I was a skinny little swimmer. So… Not what my arms would look like now, but much more important: what my arms would look like holding a kitten.


  11. I wish I still had my long hair. 

    (It’s pulled back here.)


  12. This is me saying that we should hang out. 


  13. Photo Booth nostalgia. There was once a time I had really long hair and a friend with a straightening iron. 


  14. Imagine all your grades are essentially dependent on roughly 4 tests per semester, no quizzes or homework grades. Now imagine that your classes happen so fast that you must take 3 such tests every single week. And that’s not to mention the all-or-nothing, pass/fail checkoffs. And if you make lower than a C in a single class, you fail out of the whole program. That is my life, along with 27 other very brave people. I have grown to love them rather dearly.

    This was at our last hospital orientation. We’re not the best at organizing pictures, but we’ll take care of you.

  15. I gave the inaugural injection for my nursing cohort. No worries, it was just normal saline.
