My name is Julie and I created this blog as a place to feature my creative outlets…errr, in fact, I created it as a way of motivating myself to continue to pursue these creative outlets!
The first thing you should know about me is that I’m a full-time medical student. This means that technically I have zero time for things like DIY projects, decorating my home, or baking yummy things (or blogging for that matter). But these are the things that I love to do and keep me happy, and so I’m making it a priority to continue to do these things even while I’m in school. And I’ll post about them so you can see what I’ve been up to…when I’m not doing 24 hour call shifts or studying for exams, that is.
Oh and another important thing about me. I recently became a very happily married lady, so be sure to check out my wedding posts for some DIY projects I did to keep the costs of our wedding down.
Finally, because my husband and I live on one income (his) while I finish medical school, one of my key goals is to limit how much student debt we accumulate over the next few years. I’ve recently started to read up on personal finance (thanks for all the tips, PF bloggers!) and have been trying to embrace a frugally-minded lifestyle. So I’ll also be posting about things we do to save money and keep ourselves organized during this busy time.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this blog gives you some ideas on how you can achieve some work-life balance in your own lives.
