I cannot begin to say how thrilled I was to receive a notification a few days ago that “Lynnie Lifestyle” is officially a month old!



This makes me so happy, because in such a short time, I’ve come to find something that I love doing.

I started this blog as a new outlet for myself. I was going through a lot of personal stuff that was making life slightly challenging. It is safe to say the I have been experiencing a whirlwind of emotions and honestly typing out my feelings helped. I used to blog in the golden days and found myself re-inspired to begin my own personal lifestyle blog where I could write about anything and everything.

I appreciate the support I have gotten thus far from friends, family, and my new followers. I hope to grow as a writer, blogger, and strong independent woman. I am still a newbie to this, but I hope to learn the tricks of the trade and better myself.

In the meantime, I hope you continue to stick around and check back every now and again. I adore all of the support!

Much love,

And it is frustrating. But again, I have to remind myself that I did choose a 6.5  year doctoral program. That I chose a profession that I dearly love already and it is only a matter of time before I start my adventure as a ‘real adult’.

We all deserve a little time away…

I am super new to this blogging thing, like two weeks new. But let’s sum up my last month shall we? I was going through some personal things, I finished my ten weeks at my (absolute favorite) clinical rotation, and the stress and anxiety about the impending doom, er, I mean post-grad life later this winter is beginning to loom on the horizon.

Advice to the college freshman.

It is has been six (six!) long years since I found myself crying as I walked back to my residence hall at the end of freshmen move in day at college because my parents were leaving. Continue reading “Advice to the college freshman.”
