I had a lot to say about today, but now it’s clear – like, blogging at 1 am on a school night clear – that I’ll have to keep it quick. It’s funny how the longest days have the shortest posts!
I slept through yoga (boo!) but also got to then sleep in a bit (yay!) because I had the morning at home. Our clinical experiences this semester are divided up into three sections, two are in the hospitals and the final rotation is community, i.e. basically almost everything an RD does outside of the hospital. I’m in community first. During this rotation we have site placements some days and “free time” other days to work on a very long list of community-oriented assignments. Among other things, we have to complete a case study on creating a wellness program and pick a nutrition topic on which to generate a variety of informational media. Long story short, one of the required mediums is a bulletin board in the Dietetics’ building hallway. Today I worked on the case study and the bulletin board.
But first I ate breakfast.
3 servings (I was finishing the box) of Cinnamon Pecan Special K with Blue Diamond Coconut/Almond Milk and chopped plum and nectarine.
It was a hungry morning; before I left the house I also ate a handful of honey roasted peanuts,
The last Reuben Stuffed Turkey Burger on the last onion roll with 1000 island dressing.
At 11:30 I walked to meet a friend and we spent the next 7 straight hours at school working on the case study. It is now complete. Phew!
We did take a quick break in the afternoon for sushi.
My veggie sushi was pretty bland without wasabi (I swear it was in every package except the one I picked up!) but you couldn’t beat the price.
We spent the rest of the evening running around between three stores to find the supplies for our bulletin boards. Why, oh why doesn’t Buffalo have a teacher supply store?!
My friend dropped me off just before 9pm and I trudged (my heavy laptop was still in my bag) down Elmwood to buy Adam a candy bar as a reward for his long day. Oh yeah, he still wasn’t home.
I trudged back home, completed another assignment, and finally Adam called at 11pm to tell me that he was home but he had contact dermatitis from the scrub soap and we needed to go to the pharmacy. Yay.
When we did finally get home we had to go right back out so the dog could take a very late, much-needed walk. Sidenote – All the people without dogs and husbands were out partying because it’s Thursday and I joked with the dog about how he was out on the town. I told him he was ….. wait for it ….. a dogutante. <– I’m hysterically funny and also maybe a little punch-drunk with tiredness.
During our ridiculous walk I purchased a Subway sandwich which I ate while I completed yet another assignment and wrote this post.
6-inch turkey with lettuce, tomato, green pepper, red onion, pickles, cucumber, and a tiny bit of creamy chipotle sauce.
Post’s done, time for bed!
