Up And Running: First Blog Post

February 20, 2018

Welcome! I’m excited to share this first writing piece. Tickle Me Thirty is finally up and running. Okay, it’s up jogging. Actually, it’s more like a brisk walk. đŸ˜‰ Now that I’ve graduated PA school and am in the midst of job searching, I can invest a little more time into something I’ve been trying to do for a while, but turns out studying medicine consumes your life and soul (in a good way) so it’s been on the back burner.

I thought that creating a blog was going to be fun and easy.

Fun? Absolutely, I’m kind of obsessed. Easy? HELL. NO. I thought I’d get onto a website and everything would be simple for me to place things where I’d like. It would look so pretty from the getgo and everything would just work. ::::start laughing cynically here::::

Instead, I was face to face with a “dashboard” that I thought only existed in cars. I was bombarded with widgets and plugins and thingamabobs. I thought CEOs were big deals, but in the blogger world I’m still trying to tackle what SEO is. Nonetheless, thanks to the current unemployment status, I’ve figured out enough to get it launched while I work out the quirks.

I’m excited to connect with other bloggers alike and exchange thoughts on adventure, studying medicine, life after turning the big 3-0, and who doesn’t like a blog that incorporates travel, hellloooo. During my medical training, I got advice from a doctor I worked with to take out an extra loan, (because I wouldn’t notice the difference with the piles of loans I accrued in school anyway) and backpack somewhere. He said, “You’re never going to have time off like this again.”

So after graduation, I packed my bags and headed to Asia for 19 days.

That might not seem long at all to experienced travelers. But have I mentioned I’ve been a broke student the past few years? I wish I could say I traveled all of Southeast Asia, but I decided to stick to one place to thoroughly explore it. Needless to say, I can’t wait to share my experience and tips from my solo trip to Bali.

If you’re reading this, you’re here from the beginning, so thanks for being my behind-the-scenes crew! I hope you find the progress of this startup blog either rewarding, helpful, or at least entertaining. If you’re interested in hearing more, or just want to say hi, please don’t be shy. I’d love to hear from you!

♥ Carlie
