blogging errday

This month I will be participating (or at least trying to participate) in Jenni's Blog Every Day in May. I usually don't know really what to write about anyway, and talking about what kind of shoes I would like to buy is kind of boring I'm sure, so it'll be a good opportunity to have a topic to talk about every day. Today's topic is the story of our life in 250 words or less, so buckle up kids. Here's what's gone down in the last 25 years:

I was born in Germany, and because the USA seemed a lot more glamorous to my recently MD-ed father, we moved to Wisconsin when I was five. After moving around several times, we arrived in the “town” (read: village) my parents still live in today. Twelve years of school involved constantly battling being known as the German doctor’s daughter, spending summers on a vineyard, living in Germany for a year, finding true friends, driving a giant teal ’57 Chevy Bel-Air, life-guarding, finding love, losing love to “friends”,  cashiering at Wal-Mart, sneaking out, getting caught, and getting into my dream college.

Finally I got to leave my small honky tonk town and move to the big city. I got into an extracurricular that changed my whole life. Struggled with what I wanted to study, and after random classes settled on science because I thought I wanted to be dentist. Eventually decided on medicine when I realized teeth are boring. Worked as a camp counselor and got to re-live childhood. Met a boy on the back of a bus, fell in love, moved in together, and adopted two pups. Became friends with the greatest group of girls. Traveled all over the country for band. And then eventually graduated, which was a huge mistake.

Started working, started losing my friends to fun cities all over the world, supported Chris through his medical school education. Visited Australia and New Zealand, got to hug a koala. Cried when my medical school plans didn’t work out as planned. Started a blog. Cried again when I finally got into school. 

And in less than 7 weeks I get to start a new chapter in the story of my life #soexcitedtoquitmyjob
