Daily schedule

So I have only been writing about the special fun events but I thought I would give you a glimpse to everyday life. I just started Northwestern's Prosthetics Program and I love it! However, I am still working for GE and training for the Eugene marathon, and planning my life is BUSY! A typical day is work 6-12, clinical hours 12-4, study 4-6, run 6-7:30, talk to Jeff 8-9...One= the days when I don't work (it's shift schedule so I work 4 days- off 4 days) I watch lecture videos and catch up on school. This is for sure the most busy I have ever been! Sometimes it is frustrating because I don't feel like I am doing anything as well as I could be if I could just focus on one thing but I don't know what I would cut out. Money is always useful, school is a must, wedding- no way!, running...well that keeps me sane : )

Hotel in Chicago

My roommate and I came home to an apartment with no water. We got a call from our land lord asking if we wanted a room at the Mariot since we could not cook or shower. We took him up on the offer and had a great time. Went in the hot tub that night. We shared a King sized bed. Had a nice all you can eat breakfast..worked out in the fitness center....a mini vacation in my own city!

Water's back on now so we are back to normal life.

Lynn Marsh comes to visit!

My friend Lynn and her boyfriend came to visit. It was great to catch up. We went on some memorable runs with Jenny through alot of snow. On Saturday night we had a bunch of Calvin people over and Lynn and I made Pizza's and we played some fun games. We played "imagine if" which is a game where you draw someones name and then fill it into the blank such as "Imagine if "Christina" were a truck would she be a) dump truck b)ice cream truck c)monster truck ...etc." Then everyone votes and the majority moves ahead. There were some funny ones. Fun times!

Snow Storm

As many might have heard, we had a crazy snow storm in Chicago. The picture is of Jeff's car that we had to dig out. The storm was really cool. Nobody could get their cars out so you could walk down the middle of (usually busy) streets! Did I say walk? I mean trudge- it was slow going with all that snow! Oh and YES I did go for a run! : )
