It's been 6 months...



    Apparently it's been 6 months since I've posted on here and I can't believe it. Like wow, where did the time go. To be fair, I haven't done a whole lot of reading and have had zero motivation to write, so this blog just faded into oblivion. But I'm back! Life has calmed down a bit so I thought I would give you all an update.

    I finished my post-bacc program and am now OFFICIALLY A PHD STUDENT!!! I honestly didn't think it was going to happen because life kept throwing me curveballs, but I did it. My Biomedical Sciences PhD program starts in July, so for a few weeks I have a break before diving straight back into school.

    I have my own apartment now which I'm super happy about. My living situation with my roommates (who I thought were my friends but really aren't anymore) was getting toxic so I went ahead and made the leap to get my own place once our lease ended. I have a 2 bedroom place with a balcony that I absolutely adore. I'll have to give y'all a tour sometime because I really love how my bookshelves are set up.

    After years of trying I finally have a therapist. I was officially diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and OCD, so I knew it was time to get serious help. She's helped me so much in the 5 months I've been seeing her and I'm just so proud of myself for finally getting help.

    So yeah, that's been my life so far. I might make a wrap-up post of what I've read so far this year, which is about 30 books I think, which honestly isn't as bad as I thought it would be. As I mentioned earlier, I have a bit of free time, so I should have more time to read and blog, but we shall see. I've actually been making friends and socializing recently as people in my lab have been vaccinated so for once in a long time I have a pretty good social life.
