I realized how easy it is to catch up with friends in a passive sort of way. Facebook and livejournal and all those things... but I realized since the aging of my poor computer that I really enjoy hearing the stories told by my friends.. how their voices sound and their mannerisms. It's so much more entertaining than any words I might see on the on the internet. And so, it's not that I don't care.. but I prefer seeing you and hearing your story more. Yay for interaction. Just a random thought as I was poking around in my free time..

Real Life! [Jul. 3rd, 2008|08:25 pm]
Christina
It's been so long since I've bothered posting anything. Life has been absolutely insane and good at the same time. My new apartment is finally furnished and I've been at IU several weeks now. I have the life of the rookie pharmacist now. They call us rookies at work. And we are... we have the excitement in our careers and the new knowledge and tons of energy. The older folk are a tad stubborn, set in their ways but very experienced and very good with what they do know. They have good advice to give as you get confidence and develop your own way. Sometimes I may miss those good times at Butler when I partied with friends.. but I have to say, the real life isn't as bad as people are saying it would be. There's not much not to love! :) Anyway, not really anything to say.. It may be a long time before I even think about updating again. But we shall see.

Good Morning!

Wow, I'm beginning to address my LJ as if I were writing a letter to someone. Ok, maybe writing a letter to my future self or something ridiculous like that. This is assuming I ever reread my entries from the past cause usually when I do I think "Did I really write that? That is awful!".

Moving on. My project is finished! WHEE! In fact, I'm so finished with everything except this last rotation that I really don't even know what to do with myself. I sit at home and think, I wish I could pack or something cause I dunno what to do with myself otherwise. I think soon after the move I'll actually have to acquire myself some hobbies.

Today I'm going to the zoo though! YAY! I'm kinda excited about that. If the sun would come out I'd be even more happy. But I am hoping maybe they'll be some baby animals or something and if not, I can always take lots of pictures anyway. :)

Alright, clearly I just ran out of steam.. until next time.

I am back to posting a little bit just because I can. I am two weeks from the end of rotations and I am so excited. My doctorate project will be completed probably within the next couple of days. All I have to do is present at the URC on friday.

My parents are spoiling me rotten too. They are sending me a huge box with some items for my new apartment. This includes a toaster, a blender, a mattress pad for the new queen sized bed I'm going to buy and a crockpot. There may be things in there that I have forgotten but I have to say I think I'm getting a pretty good end of the deal. Anything I won't have to buy later will be a huge help.

I went downtown to the bars this past friday. I haven't been to a bar in ages and I have to say that I enjoyed myself. I even allowed Jeremiah to buy me some cider stuff. It was pretty good... and I was just a little giggly. It was a great chance to get to relax though and visit with Jeremiah's friends a little bit.

Earlier in the day we went to an Indian's game cause we can get tickets for free from Clarian. The last baseball game I had been at was the Columbus Clippers and we didn't really have good seats and I found it boring. This time was not too bad though. If it had been warmer I would have been entertained for nearly the entire time. We got ballpark food and we were right behind home plate, probably about 10 rows from the front. That was pretty cool to be so close. I can see where people would really love that type of atmosphere. Plus, I had Jeremiah to explain parts of the game to me that I had never really understood. I'm really behind sometimes when it comes to understanding sports. But I at least know more than I did before!

Saturday was work.. I slept till 11:30 and it felt wonderful. I was sooo exhausted I had a hard time even getting up for work. After work, I got comfy and went over to the boy's house for some play time and a movie. He even bought me some flowers to make up for the "fighting" we had been doing over the past couple days. Really thoughtful. And we both forgot we were already at 8 months of dating. Pretty crazy really. We're starting to think more future now.

I was talking to my parents earlier and I think they know we are heading that direction too and they seem relatively ok with this situation. My Dad was asking me how far away I thought a wedding would be. I said, rather calmly that I thought within 6 months for some kind of engagement and then probably a year later for the actually wedding day.. wow.. so in the next year or so there could be a lot of changes in my life but really for the good. :) And I feel comfortable. Things feel right for once. We spend nearly a part of everyday together and we don't try and kill each other.. and we still enjoy each other's company even after 8 months. It's amazing, usually I get bored with someone after 3 months. Good signs yes, yes indeedy.

Oh and I finally have cable and internet in my new apartment! YAY! At least it's all set up to be turned on at appropriate dates. So now I need to investigate the price of a U-haul. Hopefully it won't be too expensive. I mean, everyone uses them cause they're a good deal right? I hope so!

Ok, so for most people that recount of my life is probably pretty boring but at least I'll have it for my own memories later and that's what matters to me! That's it. Until next time my friends!

An update at last [Apr. 6th, 2008|05:20 pm]
Christina
[Current Mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Well all, I've basically stopped writing in this thing mostly due to my busy schedule and lack of desire to write it all down but I was in the mood today so here we go. Who knows how long it'll last.

This weekend has been absolutely gorgeous. The sun is out and it's in the 60's finally. With the break in the weather, I've finally achieved a break in my depressive mood. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel finally. Only a manuscript and a presentation to go. Appears as if I'll graduate at last. Jeremiah is on a lighter rotation and my preceptor is much more understanding this month so I'm also catching up on my sleep a little bit. Always a bonus.

So for those I might not have told, although I'm sure I've told everyone who's going to bother reading this little up date but I guess for my records too it'll be nice to have... anyway, after a lot of stress and worry about being stuck in the retail world for the rest of my life, I finally was able to obtain a position at IU hospital as a staff pharmacist. This basically means I'll spend part of my time dispensing drugs and the other part of my time up on the floors doing more clinical work. I'm pretty excited over the opportunity as a first job. Maybe one day I'd like the responsibility of being the clinical pharmacist in some specialty or another but for now I'd prefer someone with more experience than I to be above me to help out with the things I haven't learned yet and maybe help with the initial trouble of me being confident in my clinical judgement. This will all be a time factor. I'm just happy that in a few weeks I'll be a real pharmacist. :)

In regards to the new life I'll be leading, I've signed a lease for a really nice two bedroom apartment in Zionsville. So I'll have a living room, bedroom and office instead of shoving half my life into one room like I've been doing the past 6 years. So now I'm in the midst of figuring out cable services, electric bills and what kind of furniture I'd like to have. It's going to be a long process as I've figured out that money never goes as far as I'd like or I don't really know how much will be taken from me each month in taxes.. I guess I'll find out. At least the loans give me the 6 month grace period to start paying so I can get settled and figure all that out first before I go spend crazy. I have to admit though, with seeing the end in sight, it's becoming harder to not go out on an extreme shopping spree and buy all kinds of things for the new place. I realized I need everything... plates, vaccum, microwave, toaster etc. I have really owned nothing up until now except my desk and bed. I guess it'll be a pretty sparse place for a couple months.

Now on to the weekend. This weekend Jeremiah and I went ice skating. We had a blast. Afterwards it was up to Clay Terrace to enjoy the beautiful weather and have dinner outside at Kona Grill. We peeked into all kinds of shops for the both of us. We even went to look at the "sparklies" as I call it and the lady inside was bored so I ended up trying on some gorgeous rings. We are starting to think more seriously about engagement type things even if we aren't ready yet. It was strange to go pick things out that I liked and give him ideas and yet strangely exciting. The day ended with some icecream from Cold Stone and then I beat my first video game with him. That was pretty exciting too. I love spring. Today I had the day to myself and I went up to Butler to read for a couple hours and then met Melanie to go play basketball in the pool and swim a few laps and then relax my tight muscles in the jacuzzi. I followed it up with a giant smoothie.. sooo gooodd. Once everything is settled again and rotations are over, look for a butterfly who'll be ready for some friends and fun again. Actually, I'm ready to party now but still a few more weeks to go.

I'm sitting with my window open, birds chirping and a nice breeze in my window and I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow. This is the life really.. it's so nice. It's like therapy to me to have a couple days where there was absolutely no schedule to follow, just constant fun and spontaneity.

So that may have been a boring update for some but at least it's better than nothing right? Maybe now that I've got some sanity returned to me and a happy mood, I'll write a little more often again. I might be in the mood for some silly quizzes too so watch out for some spam above perhaps.

See you all soon! Maybe there will be a cookout this summer or something. :)

Well I can't imagine it matters whether I update my journal or not anymore but I realize that I haven't written since november and now it's january and a new year and I've finally gotten the itch to write a little again. It'll probably be weird to see my new entry amongst those who write everyday and often several times a day but I can surprise on occassion.

Since november I've gotten some leads on my future careers and while I currently have 3 job offers, one in Indiana and two in Minnesota I'm finding that what I really want is a job in the hospital and those people aren't ready to talk yet. I truly wish they would call me back but the more I consider things I suppose it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to start my career with Walgreens. I was only hoping for a change into an environment that I think would be more satisfying to me. On the other hand, I realize the great luck that I have in my life and won't be turning any good opportunities down if I can help it. I just wish they'd get back to me since this is really the time to whatever my little heart desires and waiting on others with deadlines over my head is extremely frustrating. I always hated uncertainty.

In other news, the holidays went well. In was spoiled rotten as usual with my big presents being a frame to put my diploma into in May and a digital camera so now I can take my own pictures instead of waiting for others. I'll really need to organize my old pictures into events instead of simple categories. I am beginning to have way too many pictures now to just put into a file and ignore for later. Jeremiah came twice while I was in Minnesota and we had our own mini christmas and then got to celebrate the new year together. Things are going well with us but I do miss being near him. Perhaps something bigger will happen later... there is potential at least and I'd love to see it through to make sure.

Other than that I've been working a lot here, made some friends and have been trying to keep in touch with others through e-mail. I've actually been good about responding to people this year.. I am trying to be better at least while I'm on vacation.

Alright, that's about all I've got to say. Who knows when I'll get back to this writing thing again but at least I've got one entry in the brand new year! Cheers!
