project 12 | August

i love having my years captured month by month and plan to keep up with project 12 this year as i can. it's fun to look back on the details of our year at the end of it, as well as seeing how we change through the photos each month. :)

AUGUST


HIGHLIGHTS
this month was pretty busy with my summer semester ending only three days before fall semester started. i did have a few free saturdays before the fall saturday classes started so it was nice to have some full weekends again since my saturdays will be taken until next May. (i'm not crying, i just have something in my eye ;) so this semester i have 2 classes on saturday and 2 classes that are online. the online classes aren't always on a designated day, but we do have lectures and videos that usually add up to around the 3 hours an in-person class is each week. so it will definitely be a time intensive semester again.

it has been an adjustment getting used to working the 11a-11p shift, and different days each week. my supervisor covers multiple ER's so we sometimes travel to other ER's in the area during my shift too. we actually have to cover for an ER on the other side of town for 3 weeks during August & September, so that will be a little different too since we will be splitting the days. basically my schedule has been all over the place and i only know a month's schedule at a time so it makes it hard to plan things and keep my sleep schedule consistent. but i am enjoying the internship a lot and it is worth this crazy schedule for a year to get this experience!

we probably won't start looking for a house until during the spring semester because 1) i'm not going to have time to breathe during the fall semester and 2) we're paying for grad school out of pocket and living on only one income. unfortunately i have no time during the school year to work part-time so we are hoping to be able to build up some money towards a house since we don't have the apartment rent anymore! we are excited to find a house of our own and get settled, but we are also glad that my in-laws are gracious enough to let us crash with them this year so we can build up money and take our time finding a house!
