I hadn’t totally forgotten but I guess I’ve been neglectful and not updating. I had all sorts of stuff planned to put up here but that clearly didn’t happen. I’d like to get back into writing though, and have a record of this part of my life (which is wonderful and exciting but also difficult and confusing).
Anyway, here’s a brief summary of what I’ve been up to since June 2011 (dang it has been awhile, sorry to anybody who this was the only way they could follow what I was doing…which I don’t think is anybody…)
- I graduated from Purdue! I’ve got a nifty biochemistry degree saying that I know how to do science…
- Took some classes in food policy, got hooked, presented in DC about ways to get people to buy and eat more fruits and vegetables. Look out for updates on this topic in the future-I LOVE to talk about it and I think I bore a lot of my friends when I yammer on about food/agriculture issues.
- Made a pretty research poster and presented my data at the poster symposium! (This was a process, there might be some design-focused stuff here soon, as I tend to like to talk about everything although I am by no means an expert at anything).
- Spent a summer loafing about in California, looking for a job, and writing trivia questions to fill my time.
Aaaaaaand the big one…I started law school! It’s been wonderful and amazing and terrible and impossible and just about everything else at one point or another, but hands down I would do it all again in a heartbeat. I finally found a place where I feel I really belong, I’m doing what I love, and I’m surrounded by some of the best friends a girl could want (not that my friends from not-law-school aren’t wonderful, I still love you all I promise!! I just honestly don’t think I could have gotten through my first semester without the amazing people I met).
Right now I’m on spring break, which means I’m out visiting the boy-toy and he’s at work all day while I’m doing the job search/working on homework/watching game of thrones and downton abbey so I plan on writing some more in detail about a couple of things (law related mostly, because I am a huge nerd).
