MPFL: Week 13

MPFL week 13 (March 11 - 17) Despite my best efforts, I just could not kick this little bug. My temperature kept jumping between 99 and 100 and I sounded like a chain smoker. My diet consisted of soup, toast and cough drops. I felt like I got hit by a train. Again, I had … Continue reading MPFL: Week 13

MPFL: Week 12

Week 12 (March 4- 10) The final days of Iowa living had finally come! While it’s a little bittersweet to leave my family after being reunited for so long, I was ready to take ahold of my own life and have the opportunity to pursue my goals again. Now that I knew I was getting … Continue reading MPFL: Week 12

MPFL: Week 10

Week 10 (Feb 19 - 25) Since I started PT (literally the day after I had my surgery), I’ve gone three times a week. As I’m approaching the end of my time at home *hopefully*, we’ve been trying to get a care plan in place for when I return to LA. This raises a while … Continue reading MPFL: Week 10

New Years Rez must: ClassPass

As many of you may know, I get bored with things extremely easily. I think that's pretty evident in all aspects of my life from my career path all the way down to what I eat on a daily basis (also probably why I'm still single, Grandma). No surprise here, but that also carries over … Continue reading New Years Rez must: ClassPass

Year two

I'm not sure how this is physically possible, but after what have been the most lightening speed 365 days of my entire life, I've officially lived in Los Angeles for a year. How? Feels like just yesterday I was loading up my Kia Sorento to the brim to start on the 27 hour journey to … Continue reading Year two

City of goodbyes

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A LONGER, SAPPIER VERSION OF MY INSTAGRAM FAREWELL TO KELLY. And, for those of you who skimmed past my ridiculously long Instagram caption the other day (I really don't blame you because as I said, it was ridiculously long and reading is hard), I said goodbye for now to one of … Continue reading City of goodbyes

Weekend getaways & why they are 1000% necessary

It's May. That means it's about to be one year since I walked in the commencement ceremony at Iowa. Wtf. As I sit here typing this, in what might quite possibly be the polar opposite of where I would have typed this a year ago, I can't help but feel incredibly blessed and proud that I made … Continue reading Weekend getaways & why they are 1000% necessary

I moved to LA & now I like yoga

Ugh and I hate myself for sipping a matcha latte while I write this. When I think about the top 5 ways to make fun of an Iowan I would say corn, cows, farms, beer and probably......corn.....again. My top 5 stereotype slams to Californians are quite the opposite: vegan, non-GMO, gluten free, kale and yoga. Don't … Continue reading I moved to LA & now I like yoga

I’m only doing this so my mom doesn’t yell at me

How many times have I resurrected this blog by now? At least three or four I think. But hey, guess what. I'm doing it again! This blog is like a fricken cat, man. It has 9 lives and I think by now I'm running low on how many times I can start this back up … Continue reading I’m only doing this so my mom doesn’t yell at me
