Hi there! I’m Sarah.
While I have written my own blog before I needed a new space. A change. A site that I felt could provide me with room for growth. This is it, The Pursuit of an Outlier.
First off, as to why I refer to myself as an outlier…. Well it’s actually quite simple – I’ve never really fit in, no matter the part of my life. I was always the odd kid out on the playground, the student who just got a long with everyone but was never in a close-knit group, the girl who choose to not go to parties or to partake in other typical teenage activities for that matter, the college student who has since stayed on that same path. It’s my nature. I’m an introvert and quite honestly I love it. Also, I love statistics and we all know outlier refers to a value far from others in a data set…
I’m also a pre-medical student. I love coffee and almond butter equally. I think lifting heavy weights is fun, as are copious amount of double unders. Yoga is a go-to. I’m a supporter of eating disorder recovery. I’m extremely stubborn but I will always listen to the other side of a point. I competed in jump rope at a young age. I’m a fan of piercings, and I have 7. I work as a barista and a cashier when I’m not in school. I mainly just enjoy pushing my limits.
Now if the above proves sufficient evidence for my inability to focus let us move on…
I’m writing this blog as a place to share my story. My personal account of a trial with many errors but also successes. Experience with college, being a science major with plans to become a doctor. The story of how growing up as a competitive athlete comes into play with both mental and physical health and how that competitiveness never leaves. I want to inspire others to believe in themselves even during the darkest of times. I want for people to go after what they want, no matter how much of a challenge may present itself… for that is what makes it fun.
Life is one big adventure and I hope that you can resonate with that statement and join me on this wonderful ride.
