Is this thing on? 🙂 Hi, to whoever might have stumbled upon this blog of mine! I’ve been following a number of healthy lifestyle blogs for years and years and only recently began to consider starting one of my own!
A little about me: I’m a 23 year old microbiologist working and living in Columbus, Ohio! Go Buckeyes! I was born and raised in a small town in North Carolina but moved to Ohio to attend the best damn school in the land, THE Ohio State University. I majored in human nutrition and after graduating in 2012, I decided to work full-time while I went back to school part-time to pursue my dream of becoming a registered dietitian.
After taking a few prerequisite courses, I finally started my didactic program in dietetics through the University of Northern Colorado (online) this past August and so far I’m loving it! I’ve only taken one course through the program, and we just wrapped up our finals week on Wednesday, but my professor was great and I really enjoyed the material of the class!
This blog is going to be a culmination of all the things in my life that I have a passion for: nutrition, cooking, fitness, as well as documenting my journey to becoming a registered dietitian. The last part is the main reason why I decided to create this blog, as I felt there was a lack of bloggers out there currently going through dietetics school and I know that I hope my posts about school can help other dietetics students out when it comes time to take the GRE, apply for dietetic internships (so nervous about getting matched!), and maybe I can offer some helpful tips to fellow students!
With the holidays coming up, I’m going to be a bit busy over the next couple of weeks getting my presents together and traveling home for Christmas, but hopefully I will have a REAL post (this one doesn’t count!) soon.
