1. I loved this post so much! That’s so great to hear that you are loving your job. I love marketing but I sometimes wish I had gone into a field that directly helps people. I think that’s one of the downsides to choosing your career at 18 years old. Going into college I had different interests and a different vision for my life than I do now at 28. College should start at 25 years old :) lol

    1. I completely agree with you! I did not even realize I wanted to be an RD until after I finished grad school. I don’t think high school and college put enough emphasis on how to go about choosing your career path.

    1. Thanks! Congrats on your upcoming anniversary as well :) I agree that it’s a great gig, especially because there are so many avenues you can go in your career.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, the curriculum for getting your RD is very science-based. Thinking about organic chemistry still makes me cringe a little bit :)

  2. Sam!

    Your blog is my very favorite to read! I’ve been a silent fan for MONTHS now. My story is kindof similar to yours in that I considered nursing school (actually, got accepted after degree #1 and declined acceptance a whole two months before starting). And now I’m on the road to becoming an RD after being declared in remission from Crohn’s! Hooray for new years and new beginnings :). Thank you for being so encouraging and entertaining, and congrats to you on your one year anniversary of being a super RD!!

    1. Stacey- wow, thank you so much for the sweet comment! It sounds like we have a lot in common :) Congratulations on being in remission from Crohn’s. That is amazing and I am so happy for you!! Best wishes to you for a fantastic 2015!
