After about 7 hours, I finished my task list for the day and went the extra mile by working ahead on some patients for the unit RD, so that she wasn't so overwhelmed by her normal busy Friday. It takes about an hour to go over my task list (the RD has to sign-off and write orders for tube feedings, supplements, labs, etc. or anything else that I request for my patient) so I feel like I accomplished a lot for a really complicated day of patients.
I am really struggling with the motivation/discipline lately to study for my quiz and MNT Final (both this weekend) but I am sure I will find a way to pull it together and get some strength to study. The sun is shining and it is warm outside (just like I like it here in Florida!!) and I am really looking forward to some triathlete tan-lines this weekend. My bike is calling my name as are the open roads and fresh air.
Just 2 more quizzes and 2 finals on my to-do list, and 8 more days of interning. Official LAST DAY = April 22nd. This is a dream 3 years in the making and my third "degree" in 11 years. Thanks for hanging in there with me!

BTW - if you believe you would be a great Oakley ambassador because you perform beautifully you should apply for this contest...
