I won’t have much time to post today and into this weekend! I took an early weekend and went to Tulsa for lots of exciting things.
Such as getting a new car! Well, seriously shopping for one anyway. I’ll update about my choices and decisions when I get there.
Also I have to go up to my future medical school (eek!) and do a few things for financial aid. And, I’ve been questioning my white coat choice size. So I need to go up there and try them on again before the deadline. (I picked a smaller one because it looked better on.) The lady in the bookstore was rushing everyone and pressuring people to go a size up for better range of movement so that you can bend and easily wear layers under it. But I don’t know what to do. It’s such a hard decision. The next size up almost swallows me and the sleeved were too long. What should I do?!
An update on my medical school scholarship dilemma: I got a letter in the mails saying I was not selected to receive the endowment to practice in a rural setting. So, that decided for me I guess. I guess it came across that I wasn’t really fully committed to it yet and they determined it was not the right fit. Probably do the best anyway, now I get to decide exactly what it is I want to do without signing any binding contracts! So, I’m happy with how it’s working out.
And last but not least, I have a needtobreathe concert to attend but not til Friday night! Thats right, my boys are in my very own city and it’s pretty much illegal for me to miss that sort of thing.
A quick recommendation for all you dry skin people out there like me: CERAVE!
This stuff is amazing. I’ve been using it for years but it’s a really thick lotion so I don’t use it that much, but I need to start again.
I’ve been sunburned 5 times since February. (Seriously what special breed of white girl gets sunburned in February!?)
And the winter left my skin super dry-it’s always a little dry anyway.
Usually I can get by with just putting some in scented body lotion on my face before bed but lately my nose has been pink and irritated, my cheeks have flaky dry skin and my forehead looks like leather. So I got my tub of CERAVE out and put some on the last couple days and my face is sooo much better.
They sell it at drug stores and it seems expensive ($12 for the tub) but this jar has lasted me at least a year. I put it on my legs, elbows, stomach, back, whenever I get really dry and itchy and it makes me soft and soothed. I was actually originally told to get it by my dermatologist when I had itchy legs from keratosis but every single other lotion made me even itchier. I’ve since found out that I’m allergic to fragrances in lotion and I grew out of the keratosis but I still love my CERAVE. Try it if you need it!
