I apologize in advance for the discontinuity of this post. Here are the topics I’m about to cover:
- The best oatmeal yet
- New tab alert
- I won a gift certificate!
- My future lies in the hands of a computer matching system
First off, I have a new favorite bowl of oatmeal!
Raspberry Oats with an Almond Butter Swirl. Sorry about the quality of the photo…my camera was out of batteries, so I used Mac Photo Booth.
In my bowl:
- 1/3 cup oats, water, milk
- ground flax
- a banana
- almond butter
New Tab Alert!
My blogging philosophy is to celebrate good food and fitness. I put up the “Celebrating Fitness” tab up a while ago, but I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to be on the food page. Today, I finally created the “Celebrating Food” page. It’s nothing too spectacular, but it does have some pretty good food porn pics, so check it out, and let me know what you think!
Free Organic Food!!
I won One Frugal Foodie’s Navan Foods gift certificate for $25! Here are the wonderful goodies I decided to order:
- Mary’s Gone Crackers Sea Salt Sticks and Twigs -I saw this featured on Foods That Fit once and was intrigued
- Ancient Harvest Red Quinoa- Red quinoa??!!!! I’m super excited about this one!
- Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour- Can’t wait to do some baking with this! Anyone have recipe suggestions???
- Bare Fruit Pineapple and Mango To Go- Just a single serving of yummy tropical dried fruit for $0.99 to max out my gift certificate .
- My grand total: $24.76. Only 24 cents unused…not bad!
The fate of my future:
I’m not even sure if I want to post about this before I know the outcome, but I actually find out tonight if I got a dietetic internship for next year!!! The whole application process for dietetic internships is super stressful. While some programs are more competitive than others, its not like applying for college where you always have those “safety schools” you apply to. There are more applicants than there are spots for interns, and only about 60% of people who apply nationally get matched with an internship.
How it works: You rank the programs you apply to online, and the programs rank all their applicants. Then on April 20th at 1 AM, you are either matched with a program (they tell what internship you are doing), or you are mismatched (you did not get an internship). It’s like sorority rush. I took a huge risk by putting extremely competitive programs as my top 2 choices. This means that if I don’t get one of those 2, I may not get the any of other ones I applied to (even if I’m qualified) just because I ranked them too low.
I will be ridiculously excited if I get any of the internships I applied for, but I’m also strangely excited about the possibility of having absolutely no responsibilities and no obligations after graduation….How often does that happen in your life?? There are sooo many things in this world to do and see, and they don’t have to include getting a traditional job (or internship) immediately after graduation. I could work at a ski resort, teach English abroad, do the Peace Corps, work on an organic farm, etc. I’ve been doing a lot of research on this, and there are plenty of ways to delay real adult life!
What would you do if you had a whole year with no obligations?
