Wow! Just like that folks, it’s 2019! Happy New Year! Per usual, so many things happened in 2018; good and bad alike! The beautiful thing about it is that regardless, we are persevered and here we are in 2019 ready to start anew! I’m sure most of you noticed, I didn’t write very many blog posts last year. Because I am human, I got busy, made excuses, and got discouraged. The truth of it all is this, as much as I love sharing my life and unmatched charm with you all, I feel so much guilt and am pulled in so many different ways that it easiest way to cope is to prioritize what is stressing me out the most: veterinary school. Don’t get me wrong, I love learning and being a scholar is my jam but being stuck in a classroom with the same people for up to 8 hours 5 days a week in a small classroom with not enough desk space, poor temperature control, and mice can REALLY but a damper on your desire to do anything you really care about. Nevertheless, I have ONE more semester stuck in a classroom before I start 52 weeks of clinicals, which is equally scary and exciting! So cheers to THAT!
I’m sure most of you noticed, while I wasn’t posting blogs as much, I was still engaging with my lovely internet friends on Facebook and Instagram and without doubt I will continue to do that! I’ve also decided to add in a new form of social media that will force me to be even more candid and real, as if that’s even possible! We’re taking our talents to YouTube! SO if you haven’t already, you should go subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbSBmhKgvtesxmR7PHYskeQ/featured because I’ll be posting on there soon too!
SO! What DID happen in 2018? Well, you guys missed out on a TON of emotional parenting challenges because parenting is an ever-changing maze to never be conquered, but you should revel in each small victory. And I do! While lots of things HAVE changed, here’s what remains the same. I am still awesome. We know this. Lariah still takes gymnastics. We’re still breastfeeding and using cloth, but we’ve switched to cloth training pants since we are POTTY TRAINING. ? We still go to Nashville and Memphis to visit family. I’m still in vet school. Daddy works at the same job. We’re still working on being better people and better parents!
