Have an epic spring break!

GuatemalaWanted to let y’all know that I am going on a bit of a hiatus for spring break! And I have no shame in saying that.

You know the struggle is real. Being a full-time student, earning money, AND trying to grow a passion project (one which you’re not quite sure of the outcome and that constantly makes you want to ‘change your mind’ or ‘figure yourself out’).

However, I treck on because of two things:

#1 – I finally feel like I’m not alone.

After discovering what the hell #bossbabe is, among other inspiring millenial chick movements, I finally feel like I’m not the only one with this seemingly impossible dream. Of living a life where… well, your business is your life. And your life is your business. Because you’re getting paid to be who you are and dive into your passions and what you do best.

#2 – I can be totally honest.

So, in my last clinical rotation, my preceptor told me about a podcast called The Fizzle where these guys just have honest conversations about being in online business. The keyword here is HONEST. If they didn’t know what they were doing, that was the point. That they were honest, they’d figure it out, and take you along for the ride.

 

So I unabashedly do the same. And ask, what will you be doing for spring break?

If you’re no longer in school, will you take a hiatus? How will you spend it?

I’m going to Guatemala for a medical mission trip. No, it’s not unusual to spend your spring break doing something awesome. There are thousands of other students who like an adventure and giving a helping hand during their breaks.

 

 

Get Enough Calcium without Dairy or Dairy Substitutes

calcium without dairycalcium without dairycalciumwithoutdairy_blogNow, I’m not a vegan, but I’ve been lactose intolerant (and just generally disgusted by cheese, yogurt, kefir, etc) my whole life. I couldn’t even drink milk-based baby formula (sorry, mom! On the bright side, breast is best :P). Sure, as a kid, I got away with eating my cereal and milk with most of my milk still left over in the bowl and a 3 ounce cup of ice cream once a week, but as I got older, dairy was just not a part of my life anymore.

Whatever your reason for avoiding dairy, it doesn’t exempt you from needing calcium. And it is possible to get calcium without dairy. A cup of collard greens has more absorbable calcium than a cup of milk. (more…)
