Introducing… Well, Me


I’m happy to finally be able to say, I did it! I took that first step, and published a blog.  Since the beginning of college, I’ve had people telling me I should start a blog, but until now I didn’t feel like the time was right.  I kept feeling like I didn’t have enough content, or that there are already so many blogs out there.  But I decided to take the leap anyway, and here I am!

My name is Sarah Young.  I’ve done arts and crafts (literally) for as long as I can remember.  My mom put in my in art camp around age 6, and I continued to draw and paint through high school.  Beginning in junior high, I added website design and using the Adobe suite to my repertoire.  By high school, I became interested in photography and began working in a portrait studio at the young age of 16, despite the fact that normally you had to be 18 to photograph clients.  Ultimately I decided I wanted to go into fashion– and what better place than Parsons.  I had my hopes high, and was lucky enough to be accepted.

While I thought Parsons, and fashion, were my dream, I soon realized that maybe my junior high Project Runway fantasy wasn’t going to become a realty.  I found myself desperate for intellectual stimulation.  Despite staying up all night working on a project for school, I would then find myself reading books and trying to cram knowledge into my exhausted brain.  Ultimately, it wasn’t fulfilling.  I decided that perhaps arts and crafts were better left as a hobby, rather than a career.

I ended up transferring to the University of Texas.  When I graduated from high school (a year early, at the age of 17), I never thought I would end up going to the statey-ist of state schools in the state.  Somehow I ended up there, and was surprised at how much I loved it, despite my reservations.  I not only reconnected with my now boyfriend of five years, but I found my path to what I hope will be a lifelong career: medicine.

After four years of undergrad and the grueling process of applying to medical school, I had arrived.  I had gotten into my dream school, Baylor College of Medicine.  I loved and hated every minute of the first six months, but unfortunately my health deteriorated with the stresses of school.  The medical problems I had ignored and put off finally caught up with me, and I was forced to take a year off.

And that’s where I am today, taking time off from medical school in order to get well.  In the mean time, I’m enjoying re-kindling my creative side and exploring what things might have been like if I had stuck it out at Parsons.  Not to mention finally getting around to those things I’ve been putting off, like starting a blog.

But now onto things this blog is actually about, rather than me.  This is the schedule I plan to stick to for now.  When I return to school it may change, but hopefully only for the better!

Schedule:

Monday {Literature & Pop Culture — Reviews of books, movies, TV shows, music, and other pop culture}

Wednesday {Organization & Inspiration — Somedays this might be a DIY organization project, other days it might just be about an inspirational quote.  Other days it might be a DIY organization project that is also inspirational!}

Friday {Crafts & DIY — These will be my pride-and-joy tutorials on a variety of crafts and DIY projects for the home.}

I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences with all of you!

Sincerely,

The Creative Physician

  1. Welcome to the world of blogging. I am betting you will like it here. You meet the best people.
    Find some blogs that post things you are interested in and link up to hops. It will introduce you to the right “others” and keep you motivated.
    There are endless crafty link ups daily (choose a few to start) and a good number of book review hops too.
    I am sure there are fashion blog link ups and I know people would love to hear how you are learning to deal with burnout and getting healthy.

    Nice to meet you!
