Hump daaaaaaaaaaaay. Let’s chat (and caffeinate).
If we were having coffee today, we’d probably be at Starbucks, because that’s basically my office now that I work from home 100% here in Orange County (I’m in Newport Beach). As in, they know my order and ask me if I’m getting my “usual.” (<– Should I be proud or embarrassed?)
And I’d start out by likely ranting that I failed (literally) one of my two quizzes last night in Anatomy… stupid muscles, why must you all look alike? Instead of drinking my 19th soy misto for the week, I should be studying facial muscles and skull bones, because I have a big test tomorrow and another on Tuesday. BUT, guess what? I love, love, looooooooooove taking this class and being back in school (even if it’s just one class after work right now). I know, I keep telling you that, but it’s true! As cliche as this may sound, being in this class the past couple of months has helped remind me that I AM smart, and capable of learning and understanding new things (sometimes we forget that, you know?). As someone who loves running and just being active, I also find it super interesting. Aka I’m sort of excited I now know what each ends of the clavicle are called, and the names of the different features of the femur.
This is a whole new sorta nerd coming atcha now.
If we were at coffee, I’d also tell you that I’m trying my hardest to transport to a state of zen at work. Like an out of the body/”rise above it” outlook so that I stop getting lost in the nitty gritty annoyances and frustrations of my day job, and the negative effect it’s had on my concept of my skill level and value as a professional lady. Raise your hand if you can relate.
I’d tell you I’m struggling to find a time balance lately, with classwork and real (aka paid) work and blogging and working out and sleeping. I need to devote some time to just getting a new and improved schedule set so that I don’t feel like a sleep deprived zombie who’s always rushing around. I don’t mind having to fit in studying, but I need to establish some balance again, and prioritize.
OH! I would also tell you I’m starting a Paleo Whole 30 on April 6th (aka the first Monday of April/day after Easter), along with my friend Kirby. Anyone else want to join us? This is not my first go round at a Whole 30, and I’ll be sharing a post soon about prepping for it and the reason why I’m doing it…. but essentially I need a kick in the booty to get back onto the clean eating train. I’ve been consistently working out since the SD Half, but my eating has been a bit……. all over the place. March has been the month of eating all the bread. Oops?
I’d probably end our coffee date by sharing that I’m going down to San Diego this weekend to see friends, and I’m on the hunt for a good podcast to listen to on my drive now that Serial is over. Suggestions?
Ummmmm, and now I’d probably tell you I have to go back to work, and earn that paycheck!
If we were at coffee, what would you want to share??
