Lunchtime Poll 3/20/13: Good Decisions

Hello, Persephoneers! Our host exploded yesterday, but we’re back on line and hopefully problem-free. 

To get this Wednesday off to a good start, what’s a good decision you’ve made recently?

I went to lunch with one of the girls from the NARAL group on campus after the pro-choice rally (we went to a place with REALLY GOOD food, and they had vegan options for her, so win).

And then I found out that apparently that job I’ve been waiting to hear about? They hired someone. Someone not me because if it were me, I would know. Ffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
Now to figure out how I’m going to not be starving and homeless and, long-term-ish, focus on the grad school application. Because I need to have SOMETHING to work towards or things in my head are gonna get…unpleasant.

I started a “100 days of fitness” program, where I do 30 minutes of physical activity for 100 days. I just finished my first week and I already feel fitter when doing my 30 minutes (brisk walking up hills, for now), and it’s making me happy!

I made the decision to take a medical ASL course. I’m super excited to learn more ASL and to see if how I typically interact with deaf and/or hard of hearing persons is the most efficient and polite way possible. We took a pretest for the course yesterday, and the woman scoring our first patient encounter thought I did super well with the situation. I needed that pat on the back. :)
