Graduation Brunch

Posted on Updated on

It’s been a while (aka a few days) since I commented on how crazy it is that I’m graduating my dietetic internship soon, but well—wow! Yesterday was our graduation brunch. One of the interns hosted at her beautiful home, and everybody brought something. IMG_1528

This is just a small representation of the awesomeness we enjoyed. IMG_1526

It was a wonderful afternoon full of reminiscing and plenty of laughing. It’s pretty amazing that this time last year, I had no idea I was about to meet such wonderful people. They’re a huge part of why I’ve been able to remain grateful even on the roughest of days. Don’t you kind of love how that works? I made a mental note to remember that next time I start worrying about the future—more important than the things we stress about, the Great Unknown also brings great things our way.

What are some of the great, unexpected things and people you’ve encountered?

    Congratulations on being so close!

    […] and an MS to finish (and oh yeah—a job to find), there’s still more work to be done, but as I was talking about the other day, the Great Unknown brings a lot of wonderful things with the […]
