I am just a 30 something, midwest girl, navigating the world while dating a medical student…edit – while engaged to a medical student – 2nd edit – while married to a doctor.
A little bit more about me. I am just your average 30 something young professional, trying to have a good time whenever possible and acting as cool as a total geek of a girl can. I have a degree in Accounting and Finance and recently finished my MBA. Some of my favorite things to do include eating hipster food, making beer with Dr. B, outdoor activities – including gardening, bicycling and loving on my goofy pup Henry.
A little bit more about “us”: I have been in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend (edit fiance, 2nd edit husband), Dr. B, for over eight years. We met in undergrad and started dating my senior year of college (he is one year older) after going on a date for my sorority formal. Dr. B decided to go to medical school shortly after we started dating. I decided to buy a house and work a job 250 odd miles away (wasn’t my fault – I got my job first). He is currently in his third year of being a “real” doctor – first year he did his research fellowship and now we are working on a 5 year residency. This is our story together – finally physically together after 7 years of long distance!
I’ve embarked on this blogging journey to gain support and vent my frustrations about dating a future doctor, edit ACTUAL DOCTOR, long distance both physical and spiritual, and well…anything else that comes to mind.
