LIFE CHART #4: I tend to be a Sport Spice type of gal. Dressing up with heels, finger nails done, and makeup has never been my style. When necessary, I do it. My style is more sporty casual where I can wear jeans, Converse, and a cute shirt with a little makeup – that’s me. Recently, I thought I might joojoo it up and dress in what I thought would be grown up clothes along with hair styles. Thanks to the cultural expo at the Fort Worth Buddhist Center I got to work it out faster than I thought.
Then, today, I was speaking with a friend as we lamented having to revamp our attire for clinicals and academic residency. I do not mind the change, it seems to come with this phase of my life, but I’m not totally giving up my Chucks.
“Grown up” doesn’t have to mean “stuffy.”
