The possibilities are endless...

Some days it is definitely easier to wake up than it is others...I don't know if this morning's awakening is an indication of how this life of mine is going to play out over the next number of months, but if it is at least I can say I've had fun. This was a REALLY good weekend depite the fact that I expected it to be otherwise...

I know that for the past couple of months I've been bitching and whining about decisions and the future and everything else that comes with that. It's taken me a while but lately I've found that life is easier if you just make decisions and stick to them even if at times (like now) it feels like you are diving into the deep end of an empty pool.

I've been going to the gym and running a lot these days. That's something I do for myself and that I REALLY enjoy doing. Normally I am extremely anti-social when it comes to my work outs; however, lately I've met some really nice people with interests very similar to my own and I like that. I have never really had friends who shared my interests in health and fitness...

Oh and I was invited to join the local chapter of the marathon runners club and am now training for a half marathon that is coming up! That is way cool. My family thinks that I have officially lost my mind completely but I am loving it.

On Thursday I wanted to go climb the
Pico Duarte. I was so excited about that but I can't go anymore. First, because my friend Eve is coming to visit on Thursday and I doubt she is going to be up for that and second, because school starts tomorrow.

I start medical school tomorrow. I am very excited about that. Although this wasn't my original plan, for now that's the closest thing to what I want to do so I intend to just go and do my best! This semester I am taking 22 credits of science courses and I am a little freaked out because it is a little bit overwhelming but I like challenges.

Yeah people, some day I just may be Dr. Ana- the nutritionist. ha!

I wanted to move. I still do. I probably will in a few months. But for now I won't. I want my life to be better and I want to make good decisions that are not influenced by how I feel about certain people. This next part of my life is going to be very busy so I hope that everything I have going on will serve as enough of a distraction to allow me to forget...


Hell, in an effort to expedite that process I have become a little more open about the possibility that there might be someone dateable in this God forsaken island. I am not giving out fake numbers as much as I used to and I am smiling more...

I am going out more, planning less. Not planning is good. Tans are good. Frosty drinks are good. Visitors are good...

Speaking of which, my friends Kari and Che were visiting last week. We chilled at the bar, we chilled at the beach...good times...
