Me, duh! I officially have completed my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics with a specialization in Health Promotion from Michigan State University’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Honors College with Honors.

Here are some pictures from the big day:

Visited my new school, NIU.

Speaking of NIU, there are still a lot of things to work out in the next couple of months and the next year (before my rotations begin), but I’m trying to make headway on my checklist.

I signed a lease for an apartment in DeKalb a couple of weeks ago right before my birthday (I’m 22 now, baby!). It’s not fancy, but I’ll be living with 3 women who I think I will get along with fine for the next year. All are focused, my age or older, and the location is perfect. I can literally see the football stadium (pictured above) from my building and the walk to my classes will be comparable to what I have been doing for the past 2 years at MSU.

In the fall, I will be taking Educational Statistics I, Research Methods, and Macronutrients. Is it weird that I’m most excited for my stats course because I miss doing math so much? I’m also hoping to get a Graduate Assistantship, but I’m not quite sure when I will find out about that one.

Since I graduated a month ago, I’ve mostly just been working more at the retirement home, working out, and trying to read and see friends more. I started following the LiveFit workouts (not the diet plan, I’m doing my own thing for that part) and am already done with Phase 1! I will be doing Tough Mudder Michigan in 3 weeks time, so I have also been doing one long run a week to keep my endurance up, but other than that I have not been running at all, choosing to focus on building strength. I know that I can finish the race and I’m not trying to finish in a certain time, this is just for fun and to be able to say that I did it. I am signed up to compete as part of a team, so hopefully that will help when the day of the race comes.

Well, I think that’s it for the most part for now. At least the major stuff.

What have I missed in YOUR life!?

What do you want to hear more about from me?
