Student Gift Basket

1 comment
So for all of you that don't know, my fiance is a 2nd year in medical school. At the end of your 2nd year, you must pass Step 1 of the Boards to move on to your clinical year. I absolutely dread it. The MCAT was enough to make me want to pull my hair out. But anyways, he began studying a couple weeks ago and will take it April 19th.  In an attempt to be a good fiance and motivator, I decided to make a study gift basket.  I thought I'd share my ideas since they could be used for any devoted student. :)

I tried to keep it relatively healthy with the vitamin waters and granola bars, since he will be sitting at a desk for days on end. But, you have to have some unhealthy his favorite candy! And we all know studying can be mentally draining, so I tossed in some headache medicine. It's necessary. I threw everything into a cheap plastic basket that I attempted to decorate the front of.

And being who I am, I felt the need to add a little cheesiness. So I made "coupons." One was for a coffee date, one for a running date, one for a neck massage and one for help cleaning (and by cleaning I mean, like, taking the trash out.)

Some other ideas I thought of after the fact were:
Coffee (he has a ton coffee), a stress ball, notecards, highlighters, postits, B12 pills for energy, and notebook/folders.

I don't expect to see him much these next few weeks. Ha.

Happy Thursday!

Spring Break

No comments
Sorry for being MIA the past few weeks

Last week was my Spring Break and the week before that was the week of my Pulmonary final (really just a pretty terrible week in general). Needless to say, the blog got pushed to the bottom of the priority list again. I spent my break in South Carolina with my grandparents and sister. My sweet, tough ol' grandpa was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer the same week as my final and my sister and I decided that Spring Break was a perfect opportunity to visit them and try to help keep them optimistic.

My 23rd birthday was also during the break and we celebrated with a baked spaghetti dinner and the most delicious cake! By the end of the week, the three of us girls had eaten all but, like, three pieces. I should really go run.

I got pretty birthday flowers, too!

The last day of my break was spent taking engagement pictures (finally)! That day also marked one year since our engagement. Coincidence? Overall, the week was great and I am so fortunate for the time I got to spend with my family. I'm officially back into full swing and preparing for major studying this module: Gastrointestinal (better known as GI). Mmm. Yay digestion.

Oh, and I promise to have craft post real soon!
