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
