Oh hey it’s 2013!

Oh hey! Remember me?? I used to blog a lot.

And then last semester happened.

It was a rough semester.

My toughest semester yet in terms of how difficult the classes were.  I had something to prove to myself and I proved it!

Look at these grades…  (I blacked out my student ID info. Can’t be too careful!)



4.0 baby!!  I feel a great sense of accomplishment for it but I’m not sure it was worth the sheer amount of time I spent studying. Every single day and night.  I had no time to go out with friends (if I still have any left after blowing them off all semester that is).  I also had to work to pay for tuition this semester because I didn’t get any financial aid.  So it was pretty much work study work study work study.  It was definitely a miserable exhausting semester and I really need to work on balance a bit more next semester.  But I did prove to myself that I could keep going even when I was ready to give up because it was something that was very important to me.


I do have to say that I found my passion this semester though.  I absolutely adored my Medical Nutrition Therapy class!  I knew I wanted to be a RD but it wasn’t until this semester that I knew 100% that I wanted to be a clinical RD. I love love love it!  I’m really excited about my internship (wherever/whenever that may be.  It’s still up in the air until April!) and my first real job as a RD. I can’t wait!!


More balance this year is my main goal.  I definitely need to work on my “all or nothing” mentality a bit more.  Less worrying about grades, more blogging, more cooking, and more friends.


Here’s to 2013! DCFB33FA1087C7ABE7ECAC74BDFF501E


  1. Welcome back, Sarah! Congrats on your 4.0 – and on finding your passion – what a huge accomplishment for 2012. Looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store for you! I’m reading the Starch Solution right now which talks in the intro about how Drs often overlook nutrition and receive very little training in it. In my opinion, RDs are the new Drs! 🙂

  2. WOOHOO!! Way to go, Sarah!!
