Waiting for the results of the dietetic internship matching program, I felt like a bride walking down the aisle having doubts. The wedding is perfectly planned, the guests are here, the flower arrangements are gorgeous, but all of a sudden it just doesn’t feel right.
I’ll spare you all the details of my indecisiveness (I could ramble forever). Basically, I suddenly realized that getting my RD may not be the best way for me to reach my career goals. I started looking into getting a masters in Health Promotion Management.
A couple hours before the matching, I called my sister (who is a much more rational thinker than I am) asking if I would be completely crazy to reject a match to an internship based on a spontaneous decision to take a different career path. She said that I wasn’t really changing my mind about what I wanted to do, I had just figured out a better way to get there. She is so smart.
Anyway, I didn’t get matched with an internship. My parents are disappointed and are struggling with understanding the change in my career plan. I’m doing great! I feel liberated, excited, scared, nervous, happy, and anxious all at the same time.
On to some good food:
For lunch I had a sandwich on an Ezekiel english muffin with BBQ deli sliced chicken, baby spinach, tomatoes, and avocado. Red pepper strips on the side.
My Ezekiel english muffins came from an unplanned shopping spree at Earthfare. I went to go get some unsalted cashews from their bulk bins (cashew butter making experiment coming soon!) and some spelt flour (balking experiment coming soon!), and I ended up doing a full blown grocery trip. I can never go grocery shopping for just a few things .
This Ezekiel english muffin was incredible!!!! It had lots of little seeds, great flavor, and a doughy texture in the middle. It was totally worth being twice as expensive as normal english muffins.
Ok, I think I’m going to go get some free ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s. I love free cone day!!!
