Day one at Mayo was certainly a success, although I am definitely going to have to get used to this whole schedule thing again (haha, I say that after only one day)! The 4:45 am alarm came pretty early this morning but since I was excited about the day, I seemed to bounce right out of bed. After a 45 minute workout (I think I’ve told you that I CAN’T workout at night or it simply doesn’t happen), breakfast,a shower and coffee, I was out the door and Mayo bound. 🙂
Today was simply an orientation day (for all new employees, not just dietetic interns) where we learned all things Mayo; it was awesome to be surrounded by other people who are as excited about their given opportunity as I am mine. I finally got to meet the two other interns as well and am beyond thrilled to know that I will be in good company 🙂
Along with the massive amount of information that I learned today, I also learned something else: that I have no idea how mom’s do it. Since arriving home (after running a few errands first) I have cleaned our house, cooked dinner, made breakfast for tomorrow, walked the pups, fed the pups, got the mail and now it’s already almost 9 pm and I still have to do a little studying before my head meets the pillow. No I understand the quote, “living for the weekend.” I also understand, now more than ever, the importance of working a job that you love because if not, you will spend the majority of your life doing things that you don’t want to do. And I certainly don’t want to do that.
Anyways, just wanted to check in…I hope your day was spectacular as well. I have another orientation day tomorrow and then it’s time to dive in to the nutrition realm! I’m beyond excited.
