Music Monday

Hey folks!

Sorry, this is a little early. I doubt I'll have time tomorrow. It's no secret that I miss Peter, and this song pretty accurately describes how I feel going into a season of working long hours and running across the country to apply for interviews.

Life's not bad overall. I'm surprised by how well the acting internship is going- I'm actually enjoying working with this group of residents, seeing patients, and getting a peek into what the next 3 years of my life will be like. But I've said it many times before- it feels like life is on hold while he's not here. The walk in the farmer's market is half as fun, the lazy nights on the couch only half-enjoyed, the meals with friends only half as sweet. 

Half of my heart's not here, but in Delaware. It only makes me more eager to move forward. To graduate, and get a new job, a new home, in  a new town- together, with him. 

Anyways, how was your weekend? Anyone see any good movies lately? I've been itching to get back to the movie theatre. I don't think I've seen a movie since the second installment of the Hobbit came out!



Music Monday {on Tuesday!}

Hey folks,

I apologize for the radio silence, between volunteering at Camp Boggy Creek for kids with cancer and finding my place on the inpatient team at my new sub-internship, things have been busy. But it's all been in a good way. I love falling asleep exhausted and knowing I've tried my best, learned as much as a could, or spent my little free time making someone else's life better. Call it sadism; I love going to bed knowing I'm exhausted from a day of hard work taking care of patients and being part of the medical team. Strong words for someone who loves very few things more than sleep, I know. I guess I've found my niche :)

Anyways, here's one of many songs I downloaded recently. I listen to it driving to work at 5 in the morning, long before the sun's up, and feel weirdly content, with both myself and with the world.

I don't know what this new phase is I'm going through, but I kind of like it. :)

Have a blessed week.

Music Monday- The Waiting {it's the hardest part}

Monday, September 15, 2014

Well, today is Monday.
And not just any Monday-
It's the day ERAS applications go out.

I'm sure the majority of you {if there is a you- and if not, I don't blame you, I'm terrible at this whole blog-on-the-reg thing,} are probably raising your eyebrows right now. My bad. Basically today's the day I send out my application for residency programs and desperately hope they email me back saying, "yes! we want you! come interview here!!" This may be a slight dramatization, but that's how I'm feeling right about now. I've flung myself on paper at 80 different programs. We're just gonna have to see where I stick.

It's exciting, because it means I'm one step closer to knowing where Peter and I will start our lives together. It's terrifying because it means I'll know if all the years hard work I've put in during my adult life have meant something. My hands are shaking. My chest feels funny. My thoughts are racing a mile a minute. It's thrilling and it's wonderful and it's awful.

I was driving to the hospital, feeling all these feelings, when this song came on the radio. Music, your timing never fails to be impeccable.

I know it's been a music monday song before, but oh well. It's just too fitting for today.

Oh, Hi There

Monday, September 8, 2014

Sorry about the blog absence folks- I kind of got busy last week, between the wedding and EM shifts. On the plus side, this is a great rotation- I love the action, the variety, and the just plain weirdness {example: 1/3 of my last shift involved talking with a friendly Baker Act about how she was going to ask out her therapist.}

Anyways. We had a really fun weekend, between brainstorming some great wedding dance songs and getting my tires replaced {ok, the adjective 'fun' is kind of a stretch for that one} but I'm already going through Peter withdrawals. We haven't had time for a proper date night since we got back from Massachusetts- I have this bad habit of falling asleep on him while we're on skype. Oh well...

Here's a sample of the songs we're hoping to get people pumped up at the wedding. What can I say, I'm a sucker for rock n' roll ;-)

Have a great week!
