“You did it”

Today is a special day.

Somehow, it is April 21st and I’m spending my last day as an intern in the hospital. My few weeks of food service management sped by and now I’m here. I didn’t expect to enjoy my food service rotation, but I did some fun things.

Like have our kitchen staff try out a meal to possibly be added to the menu. 

Teriyaki salmon, brown rice pilaf, and roasted brussel sprouts. I convinced the brussel sprout-haters they had to give the roasted version a try, because it taste so much better. (Am I right?) They agreed with me apparently because all three dishes got great scores.

 Throw in a few test trays to the mix and an incredibly fun staff, it was a good time spent hanging out in the kitchen.

How do I feel? Relieved and excited. Nervous and unsettled. Sad to say goodbye, eager for a new adventure as an RD. Tired. 

What’s next? Wrapping things up at school next week, studying for the RD exam, and job hunting! Oh, and a little bit of resting. Sleeping in a few times. Cleaning my house. 

And now, on to the weekend! Eat something good and listen to this song:

  1. Yes, you -really- did it and can be so proud of yourself! Congratulations, Kate! I’ve been slacking on the commenting end lately but have still been following along and am so happy for you. Even though I’ve said it before I’ll say it again: I’m convinced you’ll be an amazing RD. With your passion for the job, kindness and dedication even when the going gets tough you’re the perfect fit.
    Fingers crossed for your exam and job searching!

  2. Oh my goodness Kate congratulations! You inspire me to stay to course with my health coach certification. It’s not as intenseive as yours (nor do I claim to be a nutritionist as we discussed before) but it is a lot of extra work in between all the other things I’m doing. I have till July to get er done and although I am not sure where this path will lead, it has already opened up so many doors.
    For you, I just love it that a godly woman such as yourself will be in a space to counsel other people to be healthier and make better decisions. Again, congratulations girl!
