I love getting organized. I get some sort of sick kicks out of it.
That is why I am so excited to have inherited with my new desk in the residents’ room a white board. With some delightfully colored whiteboard markers (dollar store for the win!), I managed to create my very own organizational delight when it comes to work planning…
This is my research month. So, I get to basically function on my own schedule. Sure, I have to do some online courses and report to my supervisor, but there is flexibility here that I have never experienced before… It is better than undergrad with time flexibility. I only have a couple of classes/rounds with required times in a week. I do, however, have a ton of stuff to get done.
But, I have a plan. And I am driven to a fault.
I have plans for all sorts of things. I am going to print some scenic pictures to further decorate the apartment. I hope to finally buy and build a shelf that will replace Jeter’s lovely (but kind of out of place) air conditioner box house. My LMCC part II is coming up at the end of October. I really should get on starting to study for that at some point.
Oh, and I am going to participate in a 5k run with the Child and a bunch of other women from our church.
It is called Run or Dye.
Basic premise… You run and people throw dye at you.
Running and getting dirty. Two things I have never exactly been in to. But, new experiences are good. And I do like pretty color.
I am not a runner. I still can’t believe I got myself into this.
I have been working out more regularly (by more regularly, I mean once or twice a week), but now that I am not working a million hours a week, I figured I can really try to pick my stamina up.
So yes, the month will be filled with research (I love my project!) and running and maybe even a bit of “slacking off” which for me consists of house projects, reading fun books and coffee dates.
