I've been living life

I have missed my blog oh so much.  But I've been living life. I'm not sorry, but I do miss writing, miss you guys and all your sweet comments!  How does everyone balance it all?

I've had a busy past two weeks.  Of course I will catch you all up!  But something happened during these past two weeks that hit me pretty hard... not one, but TWO really bad test grades.

Sad panda
I'm used to being an A student and barely having to study to achieve said A.  Go ahead, hate me now.  But it's not the case in grad school.  Grad school is kicking my ass!  So I needed a major wake-up call.  I had to figure out what was more important to me RIGHT NOW.  What is my current goal?

Well duh.  I moved across multiple states when I was accepted into an elite graduate program.  I'm in Indiana for graduate school.  I am here to PASS.  I am here to make good grades.  I am here to SUCCEED.  So it was time to get my priorities straight and start focusing harder on my main goal. 

So I've been living life.  In the IUPUI med school library.  I didn't say I was living an exciting life, did I?  I had fall break last week and was able to go home to Alabama and visit family and friends and this week has been the new Jenny!  And I'm pretty damn proud of myself. 

The view in the School of Medicine library isn't half bad
But I've got to find a balance.  A balance between what is important to me (grad school) and what I actually enjoy doing (exploring this new city and blogging).  I'm sure it will take me some time to get it perfect. 

Until then, I know for a fact I will continue to study my ass off, walking my dogs as much as I can, and I will be eating lots of ramen noodles.

double lead works miracles on these two
ramen with a poached egg... not too shabby

Are you in school?  How do you find your balance?
