Chantelle's 5 Random Facts

21 August 2013

1. I am such a homebody. Reading a book, watching a movie while drinking tea, catching up on my fave blogs, painting my nails, studying... all things I adore doing, and involve a general level of quiet in the house.

2. Until I was 15, I bounced between medicine and forensic science as my future career. The latter was taking the lead until I found out I would have to specialize in one area, and do it for the rest of my life - mostly alone in a lab. I don't like labs (unless it's anatomy!), and I really wanted a job where I communicated with many people. There's so much gratification in making others feel better physically and/or emotionally. (I want my work life the exact opposite of my private life. Loud and boisterous!)

3. I love dancing! I did ballet ballet for over 10 years, and hip hop for 6 years. I really miss it now that I'm entrenched in medical school, but I still get a great fix watching beautiful dancers on youtube. I can't wait until my life and schedule settle to a point where I can get back on a regular dance schedule.

4. I make this super awesome tea that fellow ladies and gents with a sweet tooth love. Since I don't drink coffee, this deceiving thing is what's usually in my mug. Heehee! [I know I have to start drinking coffee soon, since M3's say it's the only way to survive rotations. Womp!] --> Sugar Fairy Tea: Hot water, tea of choice (best with green tea, english breakfast tea, or orange pekoe), sugar/honey (I prefer brown sugar), and french vanilla creamer (powder form)! That damn thing is amazing, and it makes my tea heavenly! It's not healthy, so I only have it a few times a week. I'm sure a bunch of you do this vanilla powder trick, I'm not reinventing the wheel here!

5. Since I moved to Chicago, I've bought the September issue of Vogue to mark the years I'm away from home. I incorporate the magazines into my decor, and will be saving this particular stack for myself & future offspring/young family members to flip through decades from now. I'm pretty sure they'll have a good laugh!
Prepping and studying away for my new quarter!
