I feel as though I've been running a mental marathon that started back on the 17th of this month, and is only finishing up (sort of) now.
It started with the super-busy weekend that was detailed in my last post. That led into the following crazy week (with new, up-to-date descriptions!)Monday
: Health Poster Project Presentation, which went well. Big relief there. :)Tuesday and Wednesday
: Started work at Longs Drugs for Early Experience rotation hours. I was going to post about these earlier in the week, but was just too tired. After the first day of standing for roughly five hours, my feet felt like someone was pushing hot pins into them. I have since ordered more comfortable shoes to minimize this issue. However, the work itself was very interesting - I learned quite a bit about inputting information into the high-learning-curve Long computer system, filling prescriptions, etc. I even got to mix up some of the liquid medications, which was fun. :DThursday
: After lab, I came home, registered for classes (getting none of my first-choice sections!) at a Panera Bread while trying to eat dinner, and went to Phantom of the Opera
. Which was amazing, as I expected it to be. It was just as wonderful as I remembered from when we went a couple of years back, and now the songs have been running through my head for DAYS. They simply will not go away. (To complicate matters, my family also watched the movie on Saturday night so that Dad could finally understand what was going on in the story, which only further cemented the songs in my brain. XD) However, we got home rather late, and I had school the next day.Friday
: I killed my arm doing six puppet shows in a row. I am also totally in debt to the AMCP folks for helping out and letting out committee people sit a few out to recover. I also missed class to do this, and had to listen to the lecture recordings later.Saturday & Sunday
: Rested during Sabbath, and tried madly to catch up with work during the rest of the time. I also worked from 10-4 at Longs on Sunday, which sucked up most of that day. It was also super slow though, so I had the opportunity to do some research online for school work.Monday
: FINALLY took a short breather and went with the family to see Iron Man
. It's seriously one of the best movies I've ever seen. Tony Stark comes off as such a HUMAN character, and his sort-of-relationship/friendship with Pepper Potts is really touching - especially when she gives him the little gift! :) It totally blows the socks off of the X-Men movies. Now I can't wait for the sequel. Also, it had a preview for the new Indy movie, which just made me more and more excited for the time when I can squeeze it into my schedule!
So, the rest of the day has been spent studying.
I have also slept horribly this weekend for unexplained reasons. Blah.
Also, in a scary turn of events, I have started reading Star Wars novels - Heir to the Empire
to be exact. This was very unexpected. @_@
