Life in the ER is never a boring one let me tell you. It seems like at this point in time, people are sick. Which in a bad way, is nice. Not nice that people are sick, but nice that someone actually really needs our help. They have a real reason to be in the ER, and not their usual "I just want vicodin" bull shit reasons. However, the price with sick critical patients, is that I get to stay late. Staying late means that I am more tired than normal, and I don't make the drive because I am too tired. Excuses, maybe, but please tell me that after working an 11 hour day that you really just want to go and sit down for a few minutes.
This is not exactly how I wanted to talk about things. I would have preferred to do it in person, but with the Allen Go Live, docs that don't turn their patients over, and just sick people in general, it has really affected my CrossFit time. However, I have another situation that has been weighing greatly on my mind. As you guys know, I am getting ready to begin full time nursing school. Woo hoo! However, that comes at a price. My mother has graciously offered to pay for my school, which I am accepting. I am extremely lucky to have my mother pay for my schooling again. With school being a full time job, I will be unable to work full time at the hospital. My mom says that I don't have to work, but I am choosing to work to help out with the bills to prove that I am not a free loader. Not that she would ever think that, but I want to do my part.
So, I guess to make a long story short, I am not going to be able to pay for CrossFit. I don't have the funds anymore. I can not ask my mother to give me the extra money for the fees when she is already helping me with tuition, books, and rent. While I am out of school, I am working 20+ shifts a month to try to get extra money to help out when I start working less.
I will now have to workout on my own. Well, not entirely on my own, I will be working out for the most part with my friend Kelsey. It's not a good bye entirely, I will still be around. I am still going to blog. I love you guys so very much. I love CFDC and the amazing things that it has taught me. I plan on coming back when I get more money, but right now, it's not possible. I am hoping that the coaches will let me pop in every now and then on Sundays to have a real CF workout and see you guys. Results may not be as great as they have been in the past, but I am still going to work hard, and do the best I can. I will have to take it easy on some lifts like snatch, just because there isn't a coach to watch my form. So, I guess on those days it will be light work and just try to perfect the form.
I have enjoyed being at CFDC sooo much. I have gotten so many new friends and have learned a healthier way to live. I love the feeling being healthy and the confidence that CFDC has given me. I am excited to teach my friend the CFDC way! I am going to represent CFDC at LA Fitness! So, this is not a good bye, it's a see you later! I promise...you haven't seen the last of me!
