So my posts are few and far between, I’ve been busy, it happens.
There’s been a LOT of changes going on around this place, and it’s a relief.
1. I’ve started yoga and juicing. It’s been a fun week trying out my new juicer. (More pics to come!)
2. I’ve been working on coping techniques to relax and take in the moments. (Something I’ve forgotten how to do). Reading a new book: “The Mindful Way Through Depression.” Interesting.
3. Due to the fact that the California educational system is screwed up, and the fact that I can’t get a bio class to save my life, I’ve decided to take a different route with interior design. Finally, something I absolutely love. It’s going to be a semester of poster board and exact-o knives. (Also, I’m re-taking a few online classes to up my grades to make my transcripts look a little better.) I’m not changing my major, just taking a little break to up my registration status.
I’m a little frustrated that I can’t just jump in and complete the 30 units I need for my R.N. It seems that the bio class track is a so messy, you need one class to get to the other to get to the next, and that class has three other prereqs, all of which are full. It feels like a process that goes around and around, and when you think you’re done, you’re not. And then there’s the 6-year wait list. Sitting on my hands, and thus, taking interior design,
Anyway, I promised pics of the past month (yikes!), so here it is, Washington pictures and all.
Washington 2013 Photos:
I know a lot of the photos are scenery, but Kurt’s (awesome) sister let me walk around the neighborhood with her new DSLR (*drool*) and take my artsy-fartsy pictures. The last one was one our last night there, we were all in the brush, playing laser tag at night, which was so much fun!
We also played a lot of board games, which ended in this kind of madness:
Overall, it was a very low-key trip, but just what I needed to get away from the stress of work. (Hey, it’s picked back up, almost too much, though!) I loved being around Kurt’s family, and it really gave me time to sit back and reflect.
So other things that went on this month:
Snow below 3,000 feet! (Wow!)
More hospital antics.
And putting more miles on the Disneyland Passes.
So that’s been my month of February. I’m looking forward to a successful March. I’m hoping to get back into shape in a way I like, eating healthy, and learning to meditate.
I’ve kind of fallen out of step with my faith last semester. There’s no excuse for it, just things were at a low point and it was hard to find solace in God. (Especially when that should have been the first place I should look). I’m starting to pray more and read more. It’s been a difficult journey and I’m hoping it will take a positive turn.
Now, time for sleep, I’ll be back!
