I am both a night owl and a early bird. I enjoy the time to myself. This morning I got up at 6:30am to play basketball and I loved driving to the courts because it was so still and peaceful and the sun hadn't even peaked over the mountains yet. There was a full moon out sitting low on the horizon amidst a light blue sky. Beautiful. I couldn't help by smile. I also like staying up after my roommates have gone to bed because I have a few moments to myself to relax and then go to bed. Know what I mean? I treasure these small moments of my day.
The point of my title today came from a quote I heard yesterday. Funny story how I heard it....
I ordered the movie Stomp the Yard and have been anxiously checking my mail for days! Finally I got it yesterday, ripped it open, popped it in and settled in to watch some while eating some lunch. Well, I couldn't find the dang DVD remote, which actually turned out to be a good thing because otherwise I would have skipped over the previews and then missed this quote:
Cool huh? Read it one more time. Wow. Powerful don't you think?"If you want something you've never had before, you have to dosomething you've never done before."
And it's rather applicable now, as I suppose it will be for the rest of my life. You see, my friends in my dietetics program just found out who got accepted into the dietetics internship at our university and of course, because these girls have become some of my closest friends I feel emotionally involved. That being said, I'm indescribably excited and proud of the girls who got in. I also feel for the girls who were not accepted. In fact, it hurts because everyone that applied was completely qualified, but I guess that's reality. Still, it hurts. This led me to think of what's going to happen to me in April. What if I don't get an internship. Terrifying. Scary. What will I do? People keep telling me I will, but what if I don't? I have to be honest here: I might not get one. I might not. I might, but I might not. I know that whatever happens happens for a reason and I'm going to accept that, but not without feeling a little bit dismayed, scared, and sad, but that's expected right? I've worked hard, dang hard for 5 years and would be a bit discouraged if I don't get one.
But, I suppose that would be where I would have to do something I haven't ever done and completely diverge from my original plans and go from there. Whew. Deep breaths. Gosh, can April please come. I just want to know.
But on a more positive note, I broke my camera (I know, that's not exactly positive but....) and now I just have to get a new one. Darn! (sarcasm). I'm SO excited!!! My camera was wonderful. I loved it, but I was ready for a new one, something a bit more high-tech and modern and I'm stoked to get a new one. I do love these new gadgets. Hooray! Maybe if I don't get into my internship I'll go back to school for photography. Or maybe I'll go to culinary school and open up my own bakery. Hmmmm.....any name ideas for my bakery?
