It’s hard to believe it’s September already. Time for a good old fashioned life update!
Well, here it is: I’m going to grad school. Again. I’m trying to be all calm, cool and collected, but the truth is I’m freaking out a little!
There are textbooks to pick up, Facebook groups to join and a new fall wardrobe to buy (ok, I added that part in. But aren’t collegiate blazers and equestrian boots half the fun of campus life?)
When I graduated from my nutrition masters in 2009, I never thought I’d set foot again in a classroom. I remember that “done and done, time to get a job!” feeling. Since then I’ve worked two different jobs at the same company, starting out as a scientific researcher and eventually transitioning into marketing. Now I’m getting some “this is amazing, where do we go from here?” vibes.
I decided to do an MBA to make the most of my career and learn the ins ‘n’ outs of business. It’ll be part-time (two classes per semester, including summers) so that I can still work my full-time job, which means I won’t graduate for another three years.
What will this mean for this blog? Not a whole lot will change, I hope. I’ll probably have to scale back my posting frequency, but I’ll still show up. I love cooking and sharing healthy meal ideas with you and I couldn’t imagine not doing that. So! Just thought I’d share that little tidbit about my life with you.
Now, back to the food! In the spirit of the back-to-school season, I bring you a list of my favourite healthy snacks for school or work. Everyone needs a little pick-me-up now and then, so why not make it a nutritious one?
