Flip a Switch
So many of my habits seem to be ephemeral… here today, gone tomorrow. This blog sometimes seems like one of them, but I like that I have it despite its irregularity.
Can’t possibly fill in everything from the past two weeks, so I’ll summarize. School is mostly frustrating and stressful, but I really like the hand-on experiences I’m getting to do in my Med/Surg clinicals. My social life is erratic, but more alive than you’d expect considering that I’m so busy with school. Last weekend, I had scheduled work but they cancelled me, so I got to go to a Phi Mu social event that I had not expected to attend, which was really fun!
I’m feeling really great right now! Got an early start, but after my clinical day, I took advantage of the great weather. Not only did I run 5 miles (in my new Saucony shoes) but I took a dip in the pool afterwards. One of those rare days that I could do both in the afternoon. Then after a quick clean-up and dinner, I took Bonnie to the park. It was so beautiful today!
This weekend I finally made it out to spend time with James at his new place. The drive is unfortunate in length but pretty nonetheless. We had an awesome time…took the dogs for a walk on the beach Saturday and then on a nature trail Sunday. He’s still exploring the area, so we did a lot of scenic driving.
Also, Friday was exciting because I got to see Steve! Met up with him and a couple others at Plaza for lots of delicious food, and he and I ended up having a great talk afterwards. Then I got up early Saturday for The Color Run! Carrie and I finished together, and I was so proud of her. She’s a future runner – I just know it 🙂
That’s as far back as I can go without getting muddled. All I know for sure is that this month (so far) has been a roller coaster of feelings and experiences.
