Fall is fading to winter. I cannot believe it. The last time I checked, it was summer time and I was having the time of my life. This semester might just have been the fastest one yet out of all my semesters ever (yea, let’s not even count, it’s depressing). I had a patient ask me the other day how much longer I have until i’m an audiologist, and it scares the heck out of me to think just a year and a half. I have SO MUCH to learn before I can be an actual audiologist, right? Good thing I have winter break in Florida to relax by the pool and study, study, study (that’s an oxymoron, eh?)
Needless to say, time is flying. I cannot believe that this is my last year ever in Amherst. I have called Amherst home for 6 years now, and I can honestly say that I will miss it. I love this town, I really do. I love how small it is, yet how large it is all at the same time. I love how beautiful Amherst College is, and I love running by it each day. There are so many more things I love, and i’m sure I will do a huge post on it in the Spring before I leave. Leave? Yes. I am leaving. I am planning to do my fourth year in a different state. I can’t say yet where I am going, but I have decided, and I couldn’t be more excited (and nervous).
Life is on the uphill now. I’ve had a rough past month and a half, but I can truly say things are getting SO much better! I am so thankful for my amazing friends and amazing family who listen to me complain all the time. I am hoping that the complaining is now starting to die down.
So, about that half marathon, YES, I am still planning to do it. January 16. Running has been tough for me lately in that my motivation has been lacking. I need to firm up a training plan and get my bum in gear. I used to run 6 or 7 days a week, but now I am running 4 or 5 days a week (but longer mileage). I really need to pick it up though. I can’t believe it is 2 months away!! Where does time go? SERIOUSLY! 🙂
