Sophrosyne

I will be graduating as a full fledged veterinarian in four short days. The last four years have gone by both fast and slow, and now I am looking forward to a fresh new start! I decided to scrap my old blog and start a new one for a clean slate.

Sophrosyne is the name of my blog, and this blog will be a mix of bits and pieces of my daily life. What does sophrosyne mean? Sophrosyne is the ancient Greek concept of an ideal of excellence of character and soundness of mind, which when combined in one well-balanced individual leads to other qualities, such as temperance, moderation, prudence, and self-control.

The rest of my twenties will be focused on having a healthy mind that is characterized by self-control, balance, and awareness of who I am. The ideal of sophrosyne states that all of this will result in happiness. With that said, I felt that sophrosyne was a fitting title for my new blog.

I will leave my first blog post short and sweet. Please look forward to more posts and updates! I plan to travel to South Korea on May 17 until July 1, 2018, with a trip to Japan during that time. There will be many travel and food related posts to come!
