How I Spent My Winter Vacation

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

Oh, hey there. Remember that time I had a blog and then ignored it for two and a half weeks? Whoops.What can I say? I finished my first semester of med school and promptly tried to forget the fact that I was a med student at all. It worked pretty well.

I would love to say that I accomplished a lot, but that would just be a lie. Here are all the things I did and didn't do during the break.

I didn't accomplish a single house task. No pictures were hung, no rooms were finished.
I did have the house cleaned though, and we're using the same cleaning lady as my family did when I was really little. She's kind of amazing.

I didn't bake all the things.
But I did bake a really great apple pie. And I roasted a turkey for the first time! We didn't have a turkey lacer, so we made do with this:

Yes, that turkey is held together with yarn and paperclips. 
I also got a haircut after my last exam, which I will admit was the first haircut I've had since the end of July.

I may be a sleep-deprived med student, but my hair looks GREAT.
I successfully bought and applied RED lipstick:

Sometimes you just have to put on lipgloss and pretend to be psyched, right?
I didn't work on the blanket that I've been knitting, but I did finally finish this mug sleeve. Only I can take a project that is supposed to need scrap yarn and turn it into a project that consumed an entire skein. However, I didn't mail the Secret Santa gift to which this mug cozy belonged by 12/15. It's being mailed tomorrow because I am a terrible human being.

Blocking the mug sleeve, pre-button application 
We didn't go crazy on New Year's Eve, but we did spend it eating amazing food and playing Cards Against Humanity with some of our favorite people:

This is what happens when you try and take a selfie with 6 people. Where am I even looking?
Other things I accomplished:

- Slept almost as much as my cats
- Ate way too much food (and most of it was Italian, oddly)
- Survived my inlaws
- Survived my mother
- Drove my brother to Newark to catch a flight to Israel
- Caught up with a lot of friends
- Binge-watched Orphan Black, True Detective, and House of Cards
- Listened and became obsessed with Serial

And now I'm trying to remember how to do this med school thing. Only 11 weeks until spring break...

  2. Thank you! It is Stila's All-Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiery. I'm OBSESSED with it, although it takes me forever to apply because if I'm not careful, it gets EVERYWHERE.


Leave me a note! I always reply and I love meeting other bloggers!
