1. Whole days go by when I don't think about my "pending" application to nursing school And then, when I do remember, it's all I think about for hours and hours. "What if I'd spent 5 more minutes on my essay?" "What if my essay wasn't as good as I thought?" "What if my essay didn't say what I wanted it to?" "What if, even though I scored very well on my entrance test, it wasn't good enough?" "What if I'm making a huge mistake and I don't really want to do this but don't know it yet?" The last one is the one that scares me the most. Well, last night I dreamed that I broke into the nursing school to read the letters before they went out. So, obviously I'm thinking about it, even when I'm not thinking about it.
2. I am in the last week of BIG MILES for marathon training. As of Monday, in just a few days, I will be in TAPER MODE. I'm not the best during taper madness. I tend to eat too much and gain 4 -5 pounds, and then I'm freaked out because I have to carry 4 - 5 extra pounds around for 26.2 miles, and I'm not fun to be around because I don't have enough miles in my schedule to get the endorphins... I'm thinking of pitching an idea to CBS:
Take 6 obsessed marathoners who are accustomed to running 50 miles per week. Put them on an island with 6 new runners who find 15 miles a week to be frustratingly hard. Tell the Marathoners they can only run 15 miles a week. Tell the Newbies they MUST run 30 miles a week. Give the newbies unlimited access to McMillan or Coolrunning's Pace calculator. Give the marathoners access to Self Magazine online. Watch the DRAMA unfold on TAPER ISLAND!
