Today is a Great Day!

Aren't weekends wonderful? I got up this morning at 4:45 to volunteer at the Kids Fitness Challenge, a free 5K fun run for elementary, middle school and high school students. It's been a little while since I had some time to volunteer but after this I remember why I love it so much. Luckily, the projects I have recently volunteered for have been loads of fun. Maybe it's the amazing people I have met or perhaps it is the event itself, whatever it is it seems I always walk away excited about the next possibility for volunteering.
Then this afternoon I finally got in contact with a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator that I have been playing email tag with for a week. She and I chatted for a half hour about possible career choices and ways in which to get my foot in the door when it comes to diabetes and nutrition. She also offered to send my resume around and see if she could find anyone who knows anyone who could help me out. I've heard it before, mainly from my friend's mom, but informational interviews and networking are the keys to career success. Tested and true!
I spent the rest of the afternoon updating my resume, something that has been on my to-do list since the beginning of my Christmas break. By the end of the week I'll be ale to check that one off! My roommate just got home with chocolate cake, tonight I am meeting up with my coworkers for fondue and then hanging out with another one of my buddies. Can it get any better?!
