Happy New Year!

Whoa, it's been awhile since I've posted in blog.  Way too long.  I say it every time...I will get better.  Is it bad to say it on the 1st of the year?  I feel like I'm really holding myself accountable if I use it as  New Year's resolution.  But, if I don't say it I can't make it happen.

I have ideas for my blog too.  I posted a picture on Instagram awhile back of me meal prepping one day and I got a lot of interest in that post.  It gave me ideas for my blog so I think I'll explain the process of meal prepping, post recipes, etc. as part of it.  That sounds like a fun project for me.  If only med school will allow me the extra time.

How is school might you ask?  It's going great!  I just finished another HARD quarter.  Last year 30% of the class did not pass this quarter and welp, I did!  For that I am truly thankful.  I worked my butt off, but hard work truly pays off.  There is still room for improvement, but for this past quarter I did everything I could to keep on swimming...

How's my health you might ask?  Better than ever.  In September I got the good news that I was STILl in remission.  Now that it's 2015 it will mark my 5 year anniversary of being in remission.  I won't hear those glorious words again until August, but until then I'll keep this huge smile on my face.

How were my holidays?  Wait, they are over?  They FLEW by, but then again time is flying by.  How did it get to be 2015?  We were reflecting back last night with family and friends and thinking that was 15 years ago we were worried about Y2K.  The world was going to end.  It's crazy to think how long ago that was.  I graduated from high school 19 years ago?  What??  This doesn't seem right.  I still feel like a kid at times.  Now look at me, 36, cancer survivor and soon to be doctor.  I wouldn't change it for the world.

I am thankful for all of you that never give up on me.  I am thankful for my health that continues to improve.   I am ready to see what 2015 has in store for me.  I have an inkling it's going to be a really good year.

Cheer and Happy New Year!

Love, Erin
