Did you know that the sun doesn’t set until 9:00 p.m. in some parts of the country? Crazy, right? I remember when I first moved to Arizona, it was really tough for me to come to terms with the fact that the sun sets at 7:30 in the summer. Texas, thank you for the extended daylight!
As a result of the late sunsets, I’ve been so productive in terms of getting my errands done. The weather has been gorgeous this week, and I’ve been taking advantage of it. As a result, I haven’t been inside on the computer very much. The exception was Wednesday evening when I had to comfort Dexter as he experienced his first Texas thunderstorm. Thankfully, he forgot about it the next day when it was sunny and he was able to sprint around on the grass.
Each day that passes by I start to feel slightly more acclimated. My friend Erica @ Luv in the Bubble shared this post about moving with me and it really hit the spot. I can definitely relate to the fact that it takes at least a year for you to adjust completely after moving to a new city. I know this is true from the last time I moved.
The first year I was in Arizona I felt out of whack a bit, but was so excited to live in a new city that I didn’t mind. Ohio will always be my home, but I made so may friends and memories in Arizona and I really grew to love it. I also loved being within driving distance to California and Las Vegas. Who knows, maybe we will move back one day. Only time will tell!
I can’t believe I’m starting my dietetic internship in a little over a week. I received my rotation schedule for the year and I have nearly 30 rotations. My jaw dropped when I saw it. I’m really excited I will be exposed to practically all areas of clinical nutrition. Everything from cardiology, oncology, trauma, neurology, bariatrics, NICU, and more. I will have so much to blog about!
My work schedule varies with each rotation and flexibility will be a necessary trait for me to have this year. I hope to continue my usual Monday/Wednesday/Friday posting schedule. It’s much more manageable (and enjoyable) for me than posting everyday.
I’m excited to explore more of the city this weekend with Greg. Dallas has some beautiful suburbs. Uptown, Highland Park, and University Park are so charming and scenic–I love the southern architecture. If you have any restaurant suggestions in Dallas let me know!
