Friday March  28
... the first mile of my run which was about a 9 minute pace 
Saturday March 29
...being alone and happy by myself at hidden grounds after a bunch of shitty morning feels
(...also running into Amanda at hidden grounds)
(...also, being social with new people at Kittys party despite my weird mood)
Sunday March 30
... reading this blog at work today and realizing that its okay to date and fail and continue to try and find my partner in this world, and that I shouldn't judge myself for trying to do so.

I don't know if I will continue to do this every week, but I really liked reflecting on each day and picking out a few moments that were special to me. Maybe each week I'll do a different sort of reflection list. It seems like a great way to grow, and an awesome thing to look back on.

Hand written tidbits

I went to Starbucks after class today. I sat there with my coffee, scribbling in my planner - figuring out what I would study and when for my next exam, and also making plans for things I am excited for this week. But then I ran out of things to plan. And I still had about half a cup of coffee left, and so much more to say, but no computer and a phone that only had 4% left. So I decided to write. And it felt really good. And I wanted to put it here so that I can look back at it one day, and remember these feels. Here it is:

The Little Things

Today is kind of a meh day. But here are some things I am excited for

1) To be done with work
2) To go home and finish my burrito. And perhaps also eat some chicken pot pie
3) To spend the rest of the night in my bed, studying, but still in bed
4) To see my roomie after like, over a week
5) That my exam tomorrow is at 8:30, and then I have no worries till April 8th
I never got to post this, but I did eat my burrito, and chicken pot pie. And I am currently studying in bed. And its lovely.

I want to do more posts like this. Things that make me happy. Things I am grateful for. Things that I am looking forward too. Heres some things I am excited about for tomorrow:

1) Coffee and a shower super early in the morning
2) Being done with my exam by 9:50
3) A trip to starbucks before work
4) The gym after work
5) Going to barnes and noble to treat myself to a new book - books are way better than boys, am I right?
6) Chillaxing at home for the rest of the evening!

Tomorrow will be a good day. Because I have control of how tomorrow turns out. And I am choosing to make it a good day. And thats a preeetty cool thing.

Sprinnnng, it came upon us

Even though I use this blog way less often than I used to, I really love having it to look back on. Its so fun to read through old posts! Definitely keeps me inspired to keep blogging more. Here is a list for my future self of what I have been up to lately!

1) Its spring break, but it definitely does not feel like spring. I went to the mall yesterday and bought lots of spring clothes, but that is about the most springy thing that has happened this break. I have been working at the bakery, chillaxing with my brother and watching TV. I've also painted my nails TWICE in the 5 days I have been home. Now that I have a hang of how to paint my nails without getting nail polish all over my fingers, its something I actually kind of enjoy. I am a little disappointed I forgot my running shoes at my house in NB, but that just makes me even more excited to go for a run when I get back home!

2) I have been talking to this human (Michelle, when you read this don't kill me. I haven't told you because I have been trying to figure out where this relation is going before I shared this information with you) and I just don't freaking know what to do about it. Hes very very busy, and doesn't really seem to be making the time to hang out with me. The few times that we did see each other, we both agreed that it was really nice. But I've explained to him how I've talked to boys before who are all about texting and not chilling, and how I don't really like that. And yet that seems to be what this is becoming. I don't know what to do really. I don't know where this is going, and I don't know his feelings on it, and I don't know if I am really even getting anything out of this. I just really wish that I could see him to talk about all of this jazz, but he gets home from work and coaching at like 8, and then he goes for a run and by the end of that he's so exhausted that he basically just passes out.

3) I just finished up my peds rotation and now I am in the beginning of my medserg rotation. I have to say, I freaking loved peds and I definitely do not feel the same about medserg. Also, my medserg instructor suuuuuuucks. But my clinical now has been condensed into one 12 hour day rather than two 6 hour days, and thats nice. That means I get a day off!! Plus, I really love the people in my group for this rotation, so its really fun to get to spend so much time with them and drag them around to help me take care of crazy old peeps.

4) I think I always get this feeling when I have a little extra time on my hands. I just really wish I was doing a bit more. Which is absolutely nuts to say because when I am at school, between class and work and studying and trying to hangout with people, I cannot imagine having anything else on my plate. I just really wish I had a goal that I was working towards. Studying takes up so much of time time, but after school I will have nothing to show for all the information in my noggin. I want a creative project to be working on. I really wanna freaking learn how to play the piano. I was working on it over winter break, and I should get back to it now that I have some spring break time. And no surprise, I want some running goals to work on as well.

Merp. Well, I guess thats it for now.
