i need sleep bad.
You are reading the blog of a newly employed girl. That's right, I heard back from Hendrick yesterday. I got the job in pediatrics! Hooray! Now I can officially live in Abilene with Phyllis and Megan. (I'm sure I would have lived with them even if I didn't get the job, but this makes much more sense...)
My car died last night. Again. This time it was in the parking garage at Cooks. My dad came to my rescue, and we went and got it this morning and took it to this random place in Burleson to have them look at it. They located and fixed the problem in under one hour. Tell me, please, why the big fancy dealership I took it to multiple times in Abilene could never find the problem, yet this itty bitty place no one has ever heard of has no trouble? Seriously. And the best part? The people who actually fixed it charged me the same amount the dealership charged me to tell me there was nothing wrong with it. Lovely.
Good news: I am not a drug addict. This comforting information courtesy of the mandatory drug screening I had to undergo for my preceptorship. I know you are all relieved.
So I'm back in Arlington for the preceptorship. It starts Tuesday. I'm pretty excited about it. I could do without the having to be in Fort Worth at 6:30 in the morning, but what can you do?
This is him. Andrew Jackson. We will call him Jackson. Or, if we feel like confusing people, Jack, Jackie, Andrew, Andy, Drew, A.J., or Puppy. Or, if you're Megan's little brother, Old Hickory. Long story...
My car is still in the shop. I called today to check on things, and guess what? It starts for them. Figures. This whole situation is very frustrating. I'm almost ready to tell them to keep the car. I'll get a bike. Too bad that's not entirely practical. I just want my car to be fixed!! I want to be able to get in it, at any time I choose, and know that it will start. Is that so much to ask??
Oh man. Long day. Started off this morning with my last final ever!! Hooray for [almost] completing my college education!! Just got the preceptorship and state boards between me and real person-ness.
I am horrible with plants. That's all there is to it. Earlier this year, I bought this really cool plant that had spiraled leaves with red in them. It was the coolest looking plant ever, and I was determined to keep it alive. It has been sitting out on our balcony, dead, for about 6 months.
Lesson of the night: there is much to the so-called "college experience" that I have not experienced. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but at this point, I'm not really sure that it matters. What does matter is that I have awesome friends and we have a lot of fun. :)
So, in a sad, but not wholly unexpected turn of events, I now find myself single once again. I am surprising myself by being much more ok with this fact than I expected. Not that I don't miss him, or wish things could be different, but I know this is what is right. One thing I have learned through all the ups and downs of the past year and half or so is that God knows what He's doing. I believe that this is just as true now as ever. I cannot pretend to know what God has in store for me or for Ryan in the coming days, months, or years. But I am confident in the fact that as long as I keep trusting that He knows what's best for me, I will not be disappointed.
