The dreaded Finals Week.
I’ve already drank a pot and half of coffee this morning!
Wish me luck!
The Story of a Future Registered Dietitian
I have news of the most excellent variety!
I received an e-mail from the Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo Dietetic Internship Director to set up a phone interview!
It was so funny, because I was out with all my nutrition girls last night celebrating our last day of MNT (Can you believe it?! We still have finals, but it definitely has not sunk in that the class which has basically been my.life. is now over. Anyways, back to the story…), and I was saying how anxious I was because I hadn’t received any e-mails for interview requests — two of the girls in my program already have (Cornell and Penn State – I know, I go to school with SMART girls.) — And then *ding,ding,ding!* The e-mail popped into my inbox at 1:05 am!
What a way to end an evening.
And might I say, I am amazed that the DI Directors are working these late hour for us lowly, newbie Interns. Makes you feel kind of special, huh?
I am on cloud nine this morning!
Maybe I am jumping the gun on this one, but this is kind of how I feel:
Now it come times to prep for the interview. Our advisers at RIT have given us an extremely thorough 2 page list of some example questions. Here are a few interesting ones from the list:
Whew! That’s a lot to think about it.
ALSO, I got matched for my Community Nutrition Rotation for this upcoming Spring quarter. I am going to be shadowing/observing/working for the RDs at On Nutrition, a private practice here in Rochester! Carol Plotkin is the owner and the NEDPG (Nutrition Entrepreneurs Dietetic Practice Group) Private Practice Specialty Chair, which is pretty darn cool. Plus, they have a blog, which is pretty perfect for me.
Well, time for me to get to studying. I have a busy and FUN weekend planned!
I have an overactive imagination.
I dream up these elaborate scenarios of how my life is going to play out.
[Life List, much?]
Usually these daydreams are so fantastically wonderful and I get terribly excited.
What can I say? I romanticize and fantasize and dramatize various situations. I go through life wearing some crazy-awesome rose-colored glasses.
Come on now, I did go to theater school.
And then when things don’t go as I planned, I get off balance. I lose my footing. The seams start to unravel a bit.
I wish I could just chill out and take life as it comes at me, but I’m afraid that I can be a bit of a control freak at times.
Yesterday was one of those days. Such.a.mess.
Nothing went my way. Morning to night.
And I ended the day feeling defeated, disappointed, and a bit ashamed of myself for sulking and being such a grouch.
I need to get a handle on the fact that I’m not the one in the driver seat all the time. And that is so hard for me.
I’m usually pretty good about getting over things – I’m certainly not one to let things fester. Get on with your life. Everything turns out in the end.
So how can I avoid [or at least deal with] these situations where my path takes an unexpected turn?
My plan? Breathe. Get my mind off what’s eating me up. And not take things so personally.
It’s out of my hands.
And remember, things always look better in the morning.
And they definitely do today.
Okay and GO!
Oh boy, I’ve done it. I’ve really cracked.
Yesterday’s post was entitled “Wacky-All-Over-the-Place-Wednesday.”
…Do you see the problem there.
I honestly thought it was Wednesday.
Until this morning when I realized today is Wednesday.
I think I may be tired. Either that or my brain cells are finally failing me.
At least I am staying right on track as far as my big assignments go.
In somewhat-related news, today is Ash Wednesday for all you Catholics out there. Have you decided what you will be giving up for Lent?
I’m going to H-E-double hockey sticks for that one.
See what I mean!?
If you think of something good, let me know!
I have a mish-mash of stuff/pictures that I haven’t gotten around to doing anything with, so instead of letting it disappear into the land of lost content, I’m just gonna combine it all for your viewing pleasure.
It was a BLAST! We all hope to do more events like this in the future. I love kids.
Can’t get enough of St. Vincent.
…and dancing around like a crazy person to shake off the stress of the last week of classes before finals!
Check out my YouTube for more of my favorites.
Oh and this funny find!
Fairly accurate, I’d say.
More stress relief.
After not touching it for over a year, I pulled out the ole’ violin and played for a few hours.
My fingers still hurt today…
Finishing up my group project for Food and Beverage Management.
Writing my final paper for HR.
Finishing up my Senior Project.
A pertinent question, Philosoraptor, as I do live in an apartment…
Whew. I’m exhausted!
