Planning Ahead

I am so blessed. Today during the Academic Preview Day I helped host for prospective freshmen, I had the opportunity to meet and discuss my studies with Jose Gonzalez, an interdisciplinary Entrepreneurship and International Business professor at Belmont.

Are you gluten-free like me?

Oprah.com is now featuring a great article called Gluten-Free: Is it for me?, written by the daughter of the famed and beloved Dr. Oz.

I've done quite a bit of research on gluten, it's role in our diets, and the negative effects it can have for many people since I discovered my gluten intolerance about 8 months ago. This is by far one of the most readable, concise, and comprehensive articles that I've seen. "According to the Center for Celiac Disease at the University of Maryland, one in every 132 people in America has celiac disease, and nearly 15 times that number—up to 15 percent of the world's population, or one in seven people—have a non-celiac gluten intolerance" -- meaning that for most of us, one bagel won't be life threatening, but it may significantly affect our mood, weight, skin, digestion, frequency and intensity of headaches, stomachaches and sinus infections, and our overall quality of life.

Back to School, and an assortment of little blurbs

Fall break has come to an end, and I've been thrown back into the tumble-jumble of my real life. Most of my friends took off for the weekend, but I was just excited to have four open days to whip out some projects due in the coming few weeks!
Of course, today I realized that I wasn't as rested as I thought I was, and I hadn't actually gotten as much done as I was hoping too....but then again, life isn't all about sleeping and studying. I did get to spend a lot of time with my cousin Kelsey (who's a freshman at Belmont and lives just one floor above me!) and I spent almost an entire day just making fun posters, re-hanging my room decorations, and scheming about new programming for my residents (I'm an RA in a freshman dorm).

Hey Everybody!

I know I've been out of touch for a while.....coming up on 10 weeks without a new post...eek!
Let this just be a testimony to the grueling honors curriculum at Belmont.

So, while updating this blog is somewhat of an undertaking (that hopefully I'll undertake soon), I do have a slightly more whimsical blog that I update more often with quick little blurbs and mostly pictures.
