Excited for the future... finally!

Saturday, December 01, 2012

In the last couple months, I know I have a Negative Nancy. But, in just TWO weeks, it will end.

I will be graduating which means my internship is also ending. I just figured out my hours and after tomorrow I will have a little under 60 hours to complete. I can for sure complete that by the 15th. I might aim to complete close to 35 hours next week and 25 hours the next week. The final week is going to be in-tense! I have to present in a final presentation on my internship and hand in a final report that I haven't exactly started. A challenge of mine is ending so I will wrap up things than. I will find out if I get an apartment that week. I really, REALLY want this apartments. It's $163/month plus utilities. That sure would take off alot of pressure in finding a full time job. I could work at the Y 3x a week, give plasma (~$200/month) and dog sit for my friend (~$100/month). It's not ideal but it could work!

And, I am really looking forward to having graduation to where I can get back to fitness and have a couple weeks to myself. I think eventually my new routine will be simple: MWF... kettlebells, T,TH, Sunday... run and Saturdays... fitness yoga. Oh! By the way, I have been thinking I need to start doing what others do and train in seasons. For me, it would be running during October-June than maybe biking (if I ever learn how to ride a bike!!) in the summer months. I have even been thinking I could take up skiing during the winter months. My boyfriend likes to snowboard so that is something we could do together. I've wanted to get into skiing for a few years now.

Tomorrow is a Jingle Bell Run with my running group which is my internship. They are all excited and even are dressing up. Honestly, I don't think I will be dressing up.. but will be bringing my camera in case my boss forgets hers. Maybe I will post pictures of it. For me, its my zillionth race. For them, it's there first! How exciting! Many of them have told me they wouldn't have done it without me. It's really awesome. I have gotten many compliments on Run For Life. It gets mentioned in Central Staff/Directors meetings. My boss's boss has even complimented me on it saying I have done a great job with it.

Okay! I need to get to bed! Or I will be oversleeping for their race! That would be terrible as ***I*** will have the race shirts and BIBS! Eek!

    You haven't been Negative Nancy. You've just had a lot going on. We all are in that place at some point.

    I'm just super happy to read that things are looking up!

    OH my dear, I am so glad to hear you see the light @ the end of the tunnel. That's got to be such a relief. Yes, it is going to be intense between now & then, but you can do it. I pray that the apartment works out for you. Things seem to be falling into place for you and that's wonderful. You have so much to offer, you'll find a job. But in the meantime, you definitely have good plans to get you through.

    HUGS sweetie. and it's almost completed!!

    Getting so close, I am so happy for you, you did it. Now, bring on the next chapter.

    Can't wait to see the pics. I have not done a race since the EC 1/2 and I kinda have started missing it. Have fun!!!

    Sounds like a very exciting time for you! I love snowboarding and miss it so much. I haven't been able to do it since leaving Wisconsin. Unfortunately Nebraska is lacking in the ski hill department :(
