Whew. What a title, right?!
I made this cake for my old Roomz and another good friend from law school after they reminded me that it had been a really long time since they had eaten anything “Kate baked.” So, like, maybe I went overboard trying to impress them is what I’m trying to say…
Isn’t it weird how things happen like that, though? You spend three years seeing a person every day and sharing fridge space and borrowing eggs and telling each other to “PLEASE EAT SOME OF THOSE COOKIES SO I DON’T EAT THREE DOZEN BY MYSELF.” And then, one day, you stop doing that. And suddenly, it’s been six months since your old Roomz has eaten anything you’ve baked.
Ugh, change. Amirite?!
So, I’m on my OB/Gyn rotation right now. On the OB part with the babies. And the thing is that OB’s work a lot. Like…a lot.
The main problem with this is not the loss of sleeping hours, although that is sort of a sad thing. The main problem is that when you get up really early and your day is really long, you’ve created these extra meal times. Continue reading
Wanna know something rad?
Monday night, I wanted to see my best friend Hannah. So… we just
called (who are we kidding? texted) each other and made plans to see each other. She came over, brought The Weatherman, and we all hate-watched The Bachelorette over one-too-many cocktails. (JK. Never too many cocktails).
I tell you what. This whole Living in the Same City as Your Best Friend thing is the best.
1. No one has sent me my business cards with “Hannah Lust, 1/2M.D.” yet. I thought they were supposed to come in the mail? Is there someone I can speak to about this?
2. Last night the Weatherman (yes, I’m outing him) and I watched the Bachelorette premier(e?) with some friends. I know people watch this as a real thing, but…I just…I can’t be serious about it. The awkwardness was hurting my teeth. One guy was wearing a suit of armor. Also, that girl gets to drive a Bentley! This is not real life. Obvs, because it’s TV. I maaaaaay have to watch next week.

Oh, man. Last week, you guys.
Forgive our extended absence. It was hard to muster much of a positive attitude with all the crazy happening in the world. Joking about our complete inability to act like adults felt a bit inappropriate.
But! The week ended with a little bit of closure and with some good old fashioned heroics (of the law enforcement as well as normal people type). And now we’ve found some extra brain space to bring you some goodness!
By that I mean, this is Kate. Putting off studying for finals.
A few days ago we had the first Perfect Spring Day of the year in Austin.
The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot. The wind was blowing, but not too hard. Just the Perfect Spring Day.
Perfect Springs Days fill me with a rush of gratitude. So here are some things I am just super thankful for lately:
This past weekend, our school trusted that we med students could handle a very rare, treasured 3-day weekend.
Instead of my usual pinterest-filled, sleep-until-you-drag-me-out-of-bed, clean-all-the-things post-test weekend…I hopped on a sunrise plane to New Orleans to visit my dad.
New Orleans is up there. Paris, Switz, the Florida gulf coast, and New Orleans top the favorite places and home-away-from-home lists.
Out of proximity, I find myself in New Orleans more often than any of the other places, and every trip manages to fit in the perfect balance of old favorites and new finds. Continue reading
