Spring has Sprung!

Friday, March 21, 2014

I was so happy to finally finish Winter term! I am officially on Spring break, but I still have to do some research relevant to my senior project. I can't believe I have about 85 days until I graduate! I started a count-down in my planner around the beginning of the term, so it's kind of neat to see the days go by and cross it off.

One thing I am finding I have more time for now is to write my resume, and start applying for work. I know that these processes can sometimes take months, so it would be really nice to have an interview lined up even in May or early June. Ideally (which it never works out this way) I'd have a job lined up about a week or two after I graduate. There are so many jobs available that I qualify for-thankfully now that I'll have a BA, my chances of qualifying go up too!

I keep thinking that I am competing with everyone else who just has a high school diploma or "some college", but then I remember-I'll have a full on 4-year degree! It's really exciting!
I know that I won't be making "bank", but it's certainly a hell of a lot better than if I didn't go to college at all.

One thing that I've noticed is that the application process is so long! There's a lot involved in writing out my history and all that stuff. It's really a lot of work just to find work!

As far as the wheat free thing goes, today is day 4 of not eating any wheat. I've still eaten some starches like potatoes and corn, but I haven't had anything with wheat in it.
I was kind of upset yesterday because my juicer broke. I was trying to juice some beets (they're good for the gallbladder) and the juice got mixed in with the pulp in the pulp catcher. I guess that means I'll just have to buy a better one-I'm thinking the Jack LaLanne power juicer. That's the one I originally wanted, but I didn't have that much money...I guess you get what you pay for. I barely had it for a year.

Anyway, I feel better, and will continue this lifestyle. The hardest part is figuring out what to eat but there's a lot of options.

    Exciting that you're on your way to applying for jobs.

    What a great accomplishment--you're graduating and moving forward.

    Sorry to hear your juicer broke. The Jack Lalanne one is sold at Costco for around $90. It is a good investment.

    Keep up the great work!
