First few weeks of the job...

Monday, July 08, 2013

I feel like I should write an update. I mean I haven't wrote in nearly a month. But, I really don't have much to say.

I do like my job. It is fun to be the one in charge of marketing but thinking this is not my true passion. Exercise and fitness is my passion. More and more, I find missing about teaching others about health components of their body. I, also, find I need more of a physical job. I need to move around. And, I need to interact with LOTS of people. I enjoy my job but I sit all day and there is only a few people in the office. I need more! As you could probably see coming, I am considering Physical Therapy again. I am actually thinking of doing some observation hours of a physical therapist. It is required to get into any program and it would help me clarify if it is truly what **I** want to do with my future.

Besides my career path, I have met a few guys. In fact, I have gone on a couple dates with a web developer that works for the Mayo Clinic. He's dated a doctor before me. I'm no doctor, lol. I am just me. We will see how it goes. He seems nice and interested in me.

I do need to find girls to hang out. This means I got to start going to group exercise classes. It would be good for my personal and professional life. I am also thinking of asking the local Y about starting a 5K program. There are like no running groups around here but one. I am too slow for that one. They state on their website you need to have a 10 minute pace which I do not have. So, I will make my own group, haha! It would also help me get back on track with fitness. Slowly, I am getting there. Today was day four of working out together. Woot!

Much love goes to everyone on here! I know I haven't been on here much. It's hard when I do not have internet at home and Sparkpeople is just not smart phone friendly. emoticon

    Hard to meet people when you are working in a small office. Identify some other interests (books?) and perhaps meet people in other settings. Church groups, hiking groups etc. And I think a C25K program would be wonderful. My only contribution is to time it so that people can enter a local race and have a true feeling of success.

    Hoping you continue to seek and find clarity on where you should be in fulfilling your mission for all aspects of your worship and praise that includes the workplace. May you be a bright light of creativity, responsibility, and wisdom as you make new choices in the direction your life and career takes. I can appreciate the need for more people to interact with. In the meantime, continue to be the best person you can be. I'm confident that the right doors will open for you. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    Hi Savannah........
    I am so glad to hear that you like your job and are doing other things that will help you to stay active and to also meet other people.
    Observing someone in PT is a great idea in helping you decide if it is for you. My daughter-in-law is an Occupational Therapist and absolutely loves her job. About a year ago, she took an additional class that specialized in hand therapy. Shortly after she finished the course, a Dr. was hired (at the hospital where she works) who specializes in hand surgery and he sends his surgery patients to her for therapy.
    I am wishing you the emoticon . Please keep us informed re: what you decide to do.

    I struggle to find female friends - I work in a male dominated field and as much as I enjoy time with the guys at work, it's just not the same. Hopefully you find some people run with.

    Hope you find some gal pals! And hope you find a way to get more activity in your life. Good luck, sweetie, with the running.

    HUGS and smiles

    Do you have a running room around your area. They would have running groups of all paces.
