Most of you know that I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately.
And I just re-found an opportunity (I say re-found because I kind of found this department last year after I was done applying for grad school) that seems perfect for me. It’s a masters international (aka peace corps) in Recreation Resource Management which would guarentee a full tuition waiver.
experience abroad + a MS coursework in a beautiful state + a potential career in something like ecotourism
This is what I’ve been looking for.
Oh and admissions are rolling and there are no deadlines.
Emails will be sent this week.
Because I’ve been losing followers like crazy lately. But today I did the opposite of go to the gym. I had all of my gym stuff … but then I got sad after paying another doctor bill … so I bought some rosé wine and ate a marzipan chocolate. These unhealthy behaviors are making me really not like myself.
Tomorrow will be better. It will.
On the bright side, I think I fixed my computer and I’m seeing Kate Nash in concert tomorrow.
Burrito bowl: used to be one of my staples, but I haven’t made it in a long time. Bringing it back! Yummm!
Today was rough. I had a super long waiting time at the doctors office and currently have a sore arm from a tetanus booster. And last but not least …there has been lots of phone crying to insurance companies, doctors offices, and collections (for old hospital bills). It’s overwhelming and scary but at least I’m dealing with it now. They don’t teach this stuff in school … and I certainly didn’t learn anything from my parents (except maybe some of my irresponsible behaviors). Debt isn’t fair. I’ve never owned a single credit card, yet I’m drowning in it. So here’s making a plan. I’m just going to try my best to keep swimming instead of just treading water and ignoring the circling sharks. Yes that is a lame analogy, but it’s perfect.
I am going to be responsible. I will try to figure shit out. It involves lots of talking on the phone. I hate talking on the phone.
Good luck to me.Edit: First I must wait in the soul crushing waiting room at the doctors office … where appointments are consistently an hour late. Ugh
I bake when I’m stressed.

My week away was awesome. I loved the change of scenery 5 hours north. Days of hard physical labor (environmental restoration work) followed by nights of copious beer drinking in good company.
