April Blog Post

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had an amazing and relaxing spring break! I travelled to Amarillo, Texas to see my family and my best friend, Tori. She graduated from the University of Arkansas last year and has started her dietetic internship in August. I did absolutely no homework over spring break, and that was the best decision ever. By the time spring break was over, I was struggling trying to get motivation to finish out the rest of this semester, but I think I have finally found it, which is a good thing too. It seems as though everything imaginable is due at the end of this month, so it might explain why I have been so scatter brained lately.

On April 8th, many of us discovered whether we were matched in a Dietetic Internship or not. For those of you who matched with an internship, congratulations! I am excited for you as you start this new journey.  If you did not match, it is going to be okay. I would recommend talking to your advisor to figure out your next step. I know I am not much help, but I will be praying for you and everything is going to work out. I am blessed to say that I successfully matched with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.

The ArAND conference is coming up, and I can’t wait to see you guys there! I’ll be attending the awards ceremony on Thursday evening and the conference on Friday. If you are there, please stop by and say “hi”! I would love to meet you!
