Where have I been?

So all of a sudden life has gotten even busier. Did I say that in a previous post? I feel like I did. I blogress.

I started my internship this week. My wonderful mother is the Administrator of a pediatric nursing home. I need 200 hours of food related work experience. Most of her kids are on feeding tubes but some do eat by mouth. She also has me doing some special projects, like determining the cost per resident of formula and the additives. It's the vitamins and minerals that they have to add for some of these kids which is big $$$. I spent yesterday with their Dietician, working out what some of these kids need is one big math problem. Some kids only get a few hundred calories a day... I know that sounds low, but if you suffer from hypothermia, don't move and don't breath on your own you don't need much energy. They are a non for profit so no pay, but her organization is going to pay for my ServSafe class. That's later this month. I have so much to study for.

The GRE is on my mind, I don't think about numbers the way they test you. I know I am going to need some help with that but that's still a bit off. Right now I am back into the Chemistry. I am so thankful that M is taking that class with me. My TA is a nightmare, I can simply not follow this guy he makes everything so confusing and unnecessarily complicated. Why is he a TA for chemistry if his undergrad is in electrical engineering and his masters work is in biology? M could be a better TA for this class and he hasn't had any hard science since high school!

I can't believe it is October already. I turn 32 in a few weeks. Not sure what the twin sis and I will be up to that day, it's a Monday but I am hoping we will be going to a Patriots game. September flew by, seems like just yesterday I was writing down what I ate for the month. That was August, but good for me, so I'll be doing that again this month.
