The Waiting Game

It’s been a while since my last post, so I thought I’d write something.  Nick and I are currently spending out time playing the waiting game.  We are waiting to hear back from ATSU about a seat opening up in this year’s class.  We’ve been praying every day to hear something, but still no news.  I’ve been told that the last deadline for accepted students to pay a deposit to reserve their seats is in April, so it is most likely then that a seat could open up, and I’ll be notified.  Until then, we wait.

Nick has been applying for jobs in Kirksville.  Sadly, with Kirksville being a smaller town, there aren’t a whole lot of jobs available, but we know that he will find something.  In the meantime, we are enjoying the beautiful record highs in Lincoln and slowly preparing ourselves for a move to Missouri.  I’ve been getting a few things here or there that I know I will need when school starts.  Yesterday, I bought a cute polka dotted lap desk for use with a new laptop (yet to be purchased).  If I have to spend all my time studying, I at least want it to be in style.  I found my old Anatomy and Medical Spanish textbooks with the hopes of looking through them, which hasn’t happened yet, but one can always hope!  I’ve been reading lots of books about medicine, and I have many more that I hope to read before school starts.

It is hard playing the waiting game, but we’re doing our best.  We are very excited to be moving to Kirksville and to start out on a new adventure.  We just found out this week that one of our closest friends got offered a job in St. Joseph, Missouri, so him and his wife will most likely be moving close to us, which is really exciting!  And, in a few weeks we are going to be an aunt and an uncle, so we’ve got that going for us…which is nice.
