This is what I changed into when I got home from work.
The weather warmed up a bit and I was able to open the windows for a little while to air out the apartment, which felt so nice. I’m wearing a reversible sweater by ATM. It’s inside out right now, but I left the tags on. It’s a small tag and my hair covers it so I don’t think I’ll be taking it off. I keep all tags on clothes nowadays in case I’ll ever want to sell them.
I was excited to pick up my new disc bound notebook at FedEx today. I was afraid the discs would look bulky and weird, which might distract my patients and lead them to ask me about it, changing the subject from them which I would hate to happen. But in person, the discs are very subtle and I don’t think anyone will notice it as anything out of the ordinary.
I love that you can take pages in and out and rearrange them. And when you use up all the paper, you can pull them out for archiving and replace them with refill paper, rather than buying an entirely new notebook. I love the color of this milky gray leather. I’m excited to bring it with me to work. I’ll use it to take notes for chart reviews and at the end of the day or week, I’ll shred whatever I no longer need.
Right now I don’t have a proper work bag that I could use to hold a notebook like this. In the past I’ve carried additional canvas totes for the occasions where I need to carry extras. But maybe now’s the time to get a grown up professional bag. Still been thinking about that Dagne Dover midi tote, but feel very apprehensive about the weight of the bag. M from WFHW says it’s not that heavy and she seems to carry lots of work bags for her job, so maybe I ought to stop fussing over it and give it a go already. I hate the hassle of buying and then returning things though, and tend to think long and hard before I buy anything online.
I got an email today from my future employer in Los Angeles. Happy to say that there are finally signs of things moving forward with the credentialing process. It’s getting me really excited about moving back but also somewhat anxious about all the change coming up soon.
In LA, I’ll need a car. I’ve been trying to figure out what type of car to buy. It’s been so long since I’ve owned a car. I don’t really care about having a nice looking car. I was going to choose the Honda Fit because it’s cheap and practical but my sister said that my mom would feel ashamed of me if that’s what I chose, lol, so maybe I’ll have to go with the Accord. It’s a boring car, and everyone has one, but the consensus from people who knows cars seems to be that it’s the best one in its class and also happens to be one that my mom would find acceptable. What car would you buy if you were to buy one today?
