    haven't seen one of these threads in the asylum in a while. I'll name a few:

    -aced my oral exams
    -loving the hell out of the car I just bought as I sell the other one. it feels good to have a car that's actually fairly reliable and didn't have to be a Honda/Toyota.
    -looking forward to another good weekend
    -reassigned to a family practice clinic for a few weeks, totally laid back compared to the hospital.

    your turn... ready, GO :run:

    - Did well on 2 of my 3 exams the first month of school
    - Dad helped me out financially so I don't have to work 40 hours and do school full-time, I've only gotta do about 20 now, which leaves me tons of time to study
    - Health is actually really good compared to how rough it's been over the summer
    - I've learned to cook; it's not saved me much money, but it's a lot more fun to eat something you actually made
    - Comfortable with myself finally. I wanted to drop some weight but decided school needs to be my focus and when I graduate in May, I can work on that. I'm not by any means fat, but I've got some to lose.

    I'm about 3-4 months away from finally being debt free... then I can continue on with my life and start having fun again.

    Y'see folks, this is why I need to graduate!

    32 hours of clinical + 14 hours of lecture + all the time needed to read books + the time needed to complete projects/do research.

    I could cut all that out and spend 3 hours a day in a gym 5 days a week, running every day, and still not come close to being as time-consumed as college requires.

    I thought there was a thread like this sometime in the last year... lol. Anyway, plenty of stuff to fix. But nothing I'm not fervently working on. Physical fitness, self confidence, mental aptitude in my work, friendlier demeanor, some credit card debt etc.

    A lot of it started to fix up when I started my program over the summer. Some examples... it took a pretty serious threat from the chair of my program to fix years of attendance problems (going back to high school and junior high, even), and less serious but eye-opening feedback from my clinical coordinator about my shyness on rotations translating to laziness. Gone, just like that, and it's starting to radiate to other parts of my life.

    (I figured this stuff belonged in its own thread, though.)

    i'm assuming you're talking about the rock 'n' roll marathon in san diego? :bowdown: i ran that in 2006, and it was a hell of a lot of fun!

    you didn't ask, but make sure your practice runs include hills. the course included a ton of interstate ramps, etc, and was a little :eek4: for me and the group i was with. :rofl: then again, we all came from orlando, and it's relatively flat around here. ;)

    Yeap, In San Diego. I was actually avoiding hills in my runs because I hate them lol, they make me want to stop :rofl:. Hopefully running with a friend will help me with those dam mountains.

    I always start things and never finish. I going to freaking run that marathon. :bowdown:

    - I have a wonderful boyfriend, family, and friends.
    - I am healthy.
    - I have a roof over my head, and will be moving to a new apartment soon.
    - I'm not dirt broke....yet.

    By the way, this thread was a good idea. I've been stressing out about stuff lately, so this helps me think more positive. :h5:

    I love these threads. I haven't seen on in a while. :h5:

    Let's see, things going well...

    I have an SO who is really supportive and kind. I'd be really lost right now if I didn't have that kind of love in my life.

    I have a car. And while its an 11 year old junker, it was a gift that was given to me at a time when I was in a really tight spot. I'm super grateful for that.

    I have a great job that I love and get paid well for. I'm finally able to save some money and take care of a few things, and it feels great.

    It's fall :big grin: I love fall. Almost time to go to the pumpkin patch and the corn maze. :big grin: :big grin: :big grin:

    I'm finally starting to feel more comfortable in my new college surroundings (friends, classes, etc.)
    I have an amazing girlfriend that I get to see one or two days out of the week even though we're 45 minutes apart at school.
    I've aced every quiz and exam this year to date.
    I get to come home soon for Thanksgiving and Winter Break and see my friends that I've missed and FINALLY feel the cold and the rain again (yeah, I know, weird, but it makes me happy)
    My family is amazing and, even though my mom can stress me out a lot, they've really rallied around me and supported me as of late.
    I'm celebrating my one year with my gf at Disneyland soon :big grin:

    :uh: oh no! believe me, you should at least do a little bit of incline [if you're running on a treadmill].

    keep up the good work! don't stop! believe me... the feeling you get after crossing that finish line is absolutely amazing. :wiggle: you literally feel invincible... at least i did :)

    :bigthumb: good job starting now. i started training in late january 2006, and the race was in june 2006.

    here are a few of mine... :)

    1) i have an awesome job that i absolutely love & i was recently offered a promotion. after some serious negotiations, i turned it down because i didn't feel as though i was offered enough money [ie what i feel i am worth]

    2) i am communicating 100% better in all types of relationships: work, personal, & romantic [as evident by number 1]

    3) i recently received a call about a job offer i had in the works… :bowdown: :noes: ... i really hope it works out!

    4) i have changed a lot over the past 5 months, and i’m totally psyched about that :wiggle:

    5) i have amazing friends and family.

    6) i am embracing all the changes that are goin on in my life.

    7) the past few weekends have been absolutely fabulous!

    8) hehe…I’m also excited about the new fall season of my fave shows. i’m :wtc: about the final season of ER, tho…
