Intern problems: watching Survivor, and the only thought running through your mind as contestants gobble up reward challenge meals after days of not eating well = refeeding syndrome. All I want to do is check the contestants Mg/PO4/K lab values, replete, and slowly initiate intakes..
Yes, I’m one of the few people who still watches Survivor.
No, I haven’t watched all 27 seasons, I’m just getting back into it as bonding time with the fam.. and the fact that it’s ridiculously addicting.
Darn internship.. makes me analyzing nutrition and food intake over-excessively. Clinical also makes me think I have every single disease state I see.. I’m now a hypochondriac.. great.

You know you’re with an awesome set of girls at a club when they deflect any creepy boys approaching you.. including your own boy friend. :)
I’m in need of more dancing-filled nights in my life..
Homemade breakfast with heart shaped french toast and from-scratch eggs benny; relaxing lazy morning; getting our games on at Castle Fun Park; drive to W 4th for our long-awaited Fable visit; cuddles; and 7 more weeks of swing dancing classes. What an amazing birthday celebration from that guy of mine :)
A much needed night of realizing why I love him so much. Happy 1.5 years and a bit, Jason. :)
What happens when my body gets more than 6 hours of sleep and a chance to relax/unwind after a busy week: it sore throats on me. I must not get sick..
I’m currently an Intern with Fraser Health as my final year of Dietetics at UBC. Want to know what I do as an intern, fun things I learn, and some photos here and there? Then check out my internship-specific blog here!
You know internship = your life when you haven’t checked your tumblr dash for 3 days.. this will probably be a trending thing now.
What I’m grateful for: all the friends, family and colleagues who have been sending me “good luck” and encouragement messages for internship. Unlike my other Dietetics homies, I’m extremely stressed out and nervous to start.. maybe it’s the fear of failure, maybe it’s because I’m scared to look incompetent or that I lack knowledge. I don’t know what it is.
I can say that I’m excited though — it’ll be a major learning curve, and a learning style I prefer, ie working hands on, applying theory rather than just memorizing information, and working as a team or with patients to learn all I need to know about being an RD.
The next few days will involve last minute internship clothing shopping, a bit more studying, and finding ways to relax my mind with friends before I dive into my first day of internship at Royal Columbian Hospital on Monday.
Oh universe.. please help me find a way to cope with this stress in a healthy way, asap!
With less than two weeks until my internship starts, my goal is to squeeze in as many hang outs, exploring and fun times into the end of summer as possible, while still trying to get in some MNT studying as well. Since I’ve been back from the trip, my August has been pretty low key, with no work contracts lined up, but I’ve been making the effort to connect with those who I care about the most (whether or not they reciprocate is a different story!)
T-12 days until internship.. let’s see what else I can pack into this 1.5 weeks.
Re-prioritizing my life and making my health up there on my to-do list. The past few months have made me a bit nervous with chronic fatigue, disruptive insomnia, an irritated throat, and, for the past few weeks, hair loss and random bouts of shortness of breath. It’s a good thing not hearing back from doctors when I’ve gotten blood work done the past couple months, but it would be nice to know what’s going on with my bipolar body.. time to get some second opinions and get checked out by a few more doctors.
Pro: I have an abundance of time until Sept 9th so it’s easy fitting in appointments.
Con: I hate going to the doctor. I’ve gained a lame negative association with doctors visits when I was a child, so there’s still some residual anxiety when I’m waiting for an appointment.
C’mon universe, help a girl out this time to figure out if there’s anything wrong.
