I decided to do another iPhone series! All these pictures in this post are taken on my newly fixed (’cause I kind of cracked the screen earlier while playing Pokemon Go…) iPhone 6! As much as I love my camera, it can’t seem to beat the convenience and ease of the very capable iPhone camera!
This summer, I decided that I, a Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major, would give into her love of pretty things and intern with an inspiring and talented florist. What about flowers is not captivating? Their smells (I’m happy to announce that my new favorite smell comes from the Patience Garden Rose if anyone felt like buying me flowers or somethin’), their soft touch, their unique coloring, their all encompassing representations of love, celebration, or a mere thoughtful gesture. I was so honored that my new boss, Allie from Bloomwell & Co, decided to give me a shot and allow me to volunteer for her. She’s so bubbly, funny, and inspiring that it makes me feel so shy to be around her! I’ll warm up though! So many moments in my life did I just wish I could drop this medical field stuff and go into something creative. Somewhere deep in my heart, I’m questioning pharmacy school, I’m questioning not taking advantage of the freedom (no family obligations, career obligations, etc. ) I have while I’m only 22.
Allie asked me twice why I wanted to intern for her, and honestly I didn’t have a good answer, because I totally emailed her on a whim and I’ve never done anything like this at all! I want to explore, to taste, for the first time, a part of the life part of me wishes I could live. Running your own company at 23, that’s crazy! I’m really excited to continue to learn from her. Eek! She’s so sweet, she even gave me a little bouquet she made in a mason jar below! I was so surprised and so happy!!
Also, having traveled back and forth between Davis and San Francisco all summer, I’ve found my new favorite coffee shop: Reveille Coffee. I’ve been going to the location in SOMA. It’s beautiful, huge windows that provide natural lighting, minimalistic, and has the most DELICIOUS matcha lattes! I’ve been going there to study (free wifi only on weekdays though).
