Congratulations! If you’ve made your way to this page, welcome to absolute living! 🙂
I started this blog to share my “wisdom” on all things lifestyle: recipes, health and beauty tips, fitness routines, and much more! The whole point of this blog is for me to gain and explore my “wisdom” so I can share it with all of you! I have no structure or plan for absolute living, and I hope that is what will keep all you readers coming back for more, the element of surprise!
I thought it would be a good idea to post some introductions and random facts about myself before I jump into the deep dark waters of “5 ways to keep your skin from breaking out this Summer!” posts!
So without further adieu…
My name is Karen, and I’m a 20-year-old west coast Canadian girl! I am starting my third year of University studying Human Kinetics..
Probably about two thirds of you right now: “Right, Karen.. Like I’m going to know what those words mean..”
Human Kinetics literally translates to the study of human movement. I’ve studied subjects as broad as human anatomy and physiology to as specific as energy metabolism, or simply put how your body creates energy from the foods you eat. Which coincides awesomely with my huge interest in macronutrient breakdown in food. So basically, it’s a very intense, sciencey subject that I couldn’t be more in love with.
I have 2 years left of my degree, and after that, I aim to get a Masters Degree in Physiotherapy and ultimately specialize in treating athletes! So two things about me right off the bat you’ve probably figured out: I love fitness and I love school. I’ve been playing sports (mainly soccer and field hockey) non-stop since I was 5 years old, and therefore have encountered countless injuries. My passion is to put those experiences I have towards helping young athletes come back quicker and stronger.
When I’m not away at school, I live at home with my mom, step-dad, and my two ragdoll cats. I have an older brother who lives in the suburbs with his boyfriend, and I spend the majority of my time with my childhood friends, my boyfriend, or working. For the month of June, I am working at our family-owned grocery store. We just opened a new location and it has been all hands on deck, but for the rest of the Summer I will be working as a camp counsellor for soccer day camps!
School takes up a majority of my life since it is so important to me at this point in time. Now that the year is finished, I felt a little empty inside. My brain needed to be challenged again, and so I created absolute living! I hope you guys enjoy and decide to go on this journey with me, I’m so excited for all the ideas I have!
