I'm going to make a point of blogging as often as I can now.
Slackery is not what I want to demonstrate lately, I want to be productive. I feel like I need to put more effort into a lot of things. Schoolwork, blogging, friendships, finances, you name it. I know I've got things moderately under control, but I know I could do better, so that's what I'm aiming for. Nothing unrealistic, just pushing my potential a little, perhaps a nudge.
I spent the majority of today driving aimlessly around Albany, haha. Well technically I was riding, Jenna was driving, but it was an unforgettable experience nevertheless. You see.. Jenna's not exactly a whiz with directions. And we got disoriented somewhere along the way, trying to get to this big mall. We drove around completely lost, passing the same landmarks over & over again. I found it a bit amusing. Eventually we got fed up, so we went to Julie's sister's house, the same place I spent New Years at. Julie knew the way to there, and her sister, Kratia, gave us some solid directions for the shopping center. Jenna was distressed and upset from getting lost so much, and city traffic is awful, so Julie took over driving, so I hopped in the back seat with Amanda. Guess what--- we got lost again :P. Once we got Kratia on the cellphone to guide us though, we made it to our destination.
Shopping was nice :), it's such a change from our minescule single story mall, with only a few good stores. This mall had an array of cool places to go, but we were on a time limit. I was happy to atleast have bought a couple of things. This mall has escalators! I'm sure most of you think I sound extremely hickish saying that :P, but it's true. I was excited.
I bought these metallic purpley dress pants at Forever 21, because I'm seriously thinking about that New Visions program, and you're supposed to look professional for it. I figure I'll wear them to the information meeting. If that doesn't go as planned, or I change my mind, I can always use a pair of nice pants, they were only $24.00. That's also where I got the eco-friendly owl tote :).
I can't believe it's Friday already. I don't feel like going back to school :/. It's exhausting, I'm sick of it. The same classes nearly every day, doing the same things. Tedius, tedius stuff. That's why I'm thinking of NV. If I'm accepted into that, I'd be doing different things depending on the day. Some days are spent in the 'classroom', taking courses on anatomy, physiology, health careers, honors english, and goverment/economics. The other days are spent attending varying clinical sites, learning different things. Plus I'd get to drive myself places. It just seems like a heap of independence and preparation for college that I won't come close to getting at my school. Sure, I'd still have to spend part of my day there, at my school, taking my extra classes I need. But I think a switch-up like this would be refreshing. Honestly I'd like having to dress professionally too ;). I never have an excuse to otherwise, haha. My parents support me on this, so I guess it's just up to me to decide for certain that this is what I want to do. Any insight, words of wisdom? :P
Okay, so I'm going to tell you all a little story about my trip to the doctor's. After undergoing the pre-exam things with the nurse (weighing in, height checking, eye chart, audio testing), I sat in my gown in a little room with hot air balloon wallpaper, waiting for a doctor by the name of "Deedee". I've never met the woman before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. After awhile, this little old lady come bustling through the door with more energy than I think she knows what to do with :P. I have nothing against old people, I find them sweet and full of wisdom in most cases, or just plain funny. I'll admit though, having a senior citizen examine you is a bit peculiar. When I told her about my frequent stomachaches, she blamed it on not enough fruits/vegetables. I feel like I have a decent amount of them, but I guess I'll up the quota, just to see if she's right :P. I'm kind of thinking it's more than that... But hey, she's the doctor I suppose. It was really strange having her ask me personal questions too.. haha. I won't elaborate on that, but as you'd presume, it was a little awkward. I wouldn't discuss such matters with my own grandmother, so yes, it was weird. She was a nice little lady, but I'm pleased that I'm set for the year as far as physicals go.
Super cool vests in Tj Maxx, hahah. No, we didn't buy them :P.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
