Can I just say that my mind is going a million different directions this week? It's because I have only one more week before I officially start graduate school. I have three different orientations that start this Friday, so really, it's like I'm starting in a few days.
I can't believe it.
Two years ago this fall, I had just made the decision to pursue graduate work in nutrition, and started taking my first prerequisite classes: an intro to nutrition class and a remedial general chemistry class. From there it was more gen chem, and biology, and organic chem, and anatomy/physiology, and biochemistry, and microbiology. And then there was the GRE test and the whole application process...and now here I am. Wow. I'm excited and a little nervous. Mostly excited. (The photo above is not a photo of me, but it pretty much captures how I'm feeling right now.)
I'm still doing a full-court press to get healthy meals in the freezer and my pantry stocked and my warm weather and cold weather wardrobes swapped out. I still need to cook a few more batches of muffins and stews to freeze, and I won't have time to do much garden cleanup (or house clean up) once classes start, so I need to give the ol' homestead a good once over.
OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS I'M FINALLY GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL! I'M GOING TO BE A NUTRITIONIST AND A REGISTERED DIETITIAN!
And thank you for reading my giddy ramblings. You're the best.
