i fucking love my new job. for the first time, i feel like i’m being utilized and making a difference. I work for an amazing doctors office in one of the most respected hospitals, upmc. It’s literally a five minute walk from my dorm, and the people I work with are so wonderful and nice. Even though I’m the youngest member on the staff, I feel like I fit in perfectly.
I told my boss that not only was I interested in premed/health, but that I was also double majoring in film studies on the side and that i was taking my first production class this semester. She later emailed me today asking if I would meet with the development center next week to discuss me directing a video to commemorate the 10th anniversary of their division. So not only am I making connections and discovering what it would be like to work at Upmc as a career, but I also get to use my film studies interests. I’m seriously so happy right now and I just hope it lasts.
I’m going to Poland, the Czech Republic, and Germany next year. This is finally becoming more of a reality because (as if my job couldn’t get any better) I was offered a full time position at the doctor’s office over the summer. I really want to apply for scholarships for these programs though, which is why my grades seriously need to be high this semester.
Finally, I feel like this job really has changed every other aspect of my life. Because i have way less free time now, I’m under a lot more pressure and it’s been helping me improve my daily habits. I’ve been trying to go to the gym at least every day and eat a lot less/healthier. I’ve already lost 8 pounds, and hopefully I’ll be able to reach my goal before summer and maybe be able to look in a mirror again. Additionally, I’m trying my hardest to stay motivated and study/do well in my classes. I really want everything this semester to work out.
Lastly, I miss you so fucking much. I can’t wait to see you again and spend our third valentines day together.
