Well as I live and breathe my boss handed me an expected promotion with unexpected twists today. I am really apprehensive about taking over the good once my friend moves on to a better opportunity but at least my financial woes will settle down. He's giving me a sizable raise which I sorely need to make other opportunities open up in my life. I just wonder if this is the right step towards medical school. I just wonder if this is the right step for me all the way around. It's obvious my current position would turn into a mundane boring job once the dust settled and any gains made would fizzle out. So moving on to a new mobile manager role ought to, at the very least, give me hope of something better. I am praying that's the case anyways.
I am due to see my doctor next Friday for my monthly weigh in. I am little nervous to go since I gained weight this month from stress and frankly poor stress management. I am trying to get back on track, which is going better, but I am really concerned about showing up as a dud come the 7th.
Dear Lord I need discipline. I really need to get back into the swing of my Mandarin lessons. I really want to be fluent in both Mandarin and Spanish before I apply to medical school. That will take a fair bit of studying on my part somewhere in between work and taking care of my mother. I am really not sure where to fit it in but that's probably because I am lazy. Truly lazy. If only there were a few more hours in the day or I didn't need to sleep. . .
