angiepants [one pocket at a time]

Hi, I'm a 23 year old Long Island raised lady who became a grown adult (aka: 6 years for undergrad and grad schooling) in Philly, home of squished pretzels and 'brotherly' love. I'm on the brink of finishing my degree in Physical Therapy and have traveled to the midwest for my final internship - a new, uncharted territory for me! I'm known to geek over anything anatomy or adaptive sports. You’ll find me stopping to pick flowers for my hair, living waist deep in my studies or spending the weekend cooking up a storm. My favorites are fruit, artsy things, wearing aprons and sprawling down on the ground instead of actual chairs. This is my place of inspirations, thoughts, and daily occurences. Enjoy.

This serves as Motivation for two more days of finals and practicals.
