I was a freshman at UGA during the last Summer Olympics. I remember feeling excited, nervous, and free. I was living on my own, albeit with 4 floors of other 18-19 year old freshmen. I had the world at my feet. And I thought Ryan Lochte was the hunkiest dude on the face of the Earth.
Fast forward five years. I am now a jaded fifth-year senior. Just kidding, I’m not jaded. I do, however, find Lochte silly after seeing him in his grill (so 2004).
I am actually really excited for my classes this year. Yes, all of my old friends are done with school for the most part, but if there is anything I have learned during my four years in Athens, it’s that I actually can make friends easily. I’ve learned that I can beat Organic Chemistry and Anatomy, so bring it on Biochemistry! I’ve learned that the hospital is not the job arena for me as a dietitian after working at St. Mary’s in Athens this summer. I’ve also learned a lot about myself in the past year and I have a lot more confidence in myself than I did the first half of college.
Basically, I have had a busy year. Obviously I let this blog fall by the wayside, but now I’m ready to start writing again. I’m not sure how consistent I will be at first, but I’ve been taking pictures of recipes I’ve made over the past few weeks. I also don’t know if I’ll just talk about recipes. Maybe I’ll talk about dietetics-y type stuff, because there are a lot of bad nutrition info out there (for example, white potatoes are not bad for you, diabetics! Or anyone! Eat them!).
So, I apologize for the year hiatus, but I’m excited to be back.
