20 Sentences to Describe My Time in Music City, USA


I’m back from a hiatus this week with some news! I’m officially all moved in and settled in Charleston, SC for a clinical rotation to complete my Master’s degree. I’m sad to be out of Nashville for the semester, but I think it will be a fantastic experience! Stay posted for new updates on life in Charleston over the next few months!

As I start the semester, I can’t help but look back on all the things that I did in Nashville since starting undergrad. But in the past few months, I’ve experienced a new side of the city and a new side of graduate school life.  So, as an experiment and a fun reflection activity, I’ve tried to sum up my semester in 20 sentences. I don’t think I can fully convey the themes of this semester, but I can sure try!
