Hey there people. It's Hump Day. And all I've got for you are some random thoughts.
I really like the word blurb...and I really feel like blurbing today. So here goes.
...I have days when I just feel too stagnant. Too comfortable with life and where I am at the moment. So naturally, my brain gets going. I start plotting and planning--trying to figure out the best next step for me. And I realized that now is just as good a time as any...I'm attempting to start the daunting process of applying to grad school. Getting my Nurse Practitioner's license--yikes. Just the thought of it makes me tremble.
...The genius (sarcasm...) idea of going back to school entails me taking the GRE. Bring on the vocabulary words, verbal reasoning, and quantitative problems--oh joy! I just love a good right triangle. So far I've learned words such as panegyrical and apogee (a.k.a. words that no one know.) It makes feel productive and a bit stupid all at the same time.
...And I figured, while I'm putting forth a little productive effort, I may as well take the jump and sign up for a 5K. I'm desperately needing some inspiration and motivation to get this butt back into shape. Eeek, a 5K. My first one. (And now I'm kinda kicking myself in the pants for signing up for it like it was no big deal...) What have I done to prepare, you ask? Oh, nothing. Someone please send a sister some encouragement. This task is already making me shake in my running shoes. (Side note: to use Couch to 5K or no? Any tips from you runners?)
...I'm currently typing to you from my brand spanking new MacBook Pro...a surprise Christmas present from mi madre and padre. I was absolutely ecstatic, to say the least. But now, I sort of feel like my grandmother trying to navigate herself through Facebook--clueless. Surely there's some Mac for Dummies book, right? I hope it doesn't take me forever to catch onto how to use this beauty--because I'm slightly obsessed with it, even if I only know how to get to the Internet. Baby steps.
...I've diagnosed myself with Post-Christmas Depression Disorder, more commonly known as PCDD. Symptoms noted are episodes of tears in front of the dwindling Christmas decor, prolonged sleeping to avoid the lack of holiday spirit, and excess eating of leftover Christmas sweets. I've yet to find a remedy, but I'll be sure to let you know if any breakthroughs in my condition are made.
...We just got our work schedules today for the next 6 weeks, and let me just tell you--it's about a bajillion times better than this past one. Granted, it was the holidays AND I was off for Christmas, both those 3 nights on back to back are making me a zombie nurse and a MIA friend/daughter/sister/girlfriend. Hence the lack of blogging... I almost did a backflip behind the nurse's station (& good thing I was at the hospital because I would've needed the ER after a stunt such as that.) I even have 8 days off in A ROW towards the end of February...amazing, right? Everything is looking good from my eyes at the moment.
...and last but not least, I won't spill my heart out about Christmas, because of course, it was absolutely perfect. But I will show you a few pictures to compensate for all the words this post has had. Christmas is my bff. Already counting down the days until my favorite season comes around again...
Happy Wednesday, y'all. It's my bedtime...one more night at work and then twoooo off!
Hope your Wednesdays are wonderful!
