WIR 49 (2015)

Happy Sunday! As promised, here's a look at my week:


I started a new She Reads Truth devotional with the goal to read one study each night before bed. Since I'm trying to save money where I can, I opted for the free Sermon On The Mount (20-day) Plan vs the Advent: Born is the King Plan for $1.99. It's not advent specific but still fosters my relationship with God so, yippee!

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony
Verses from Day 3 Sermon on the Mount Devotional

A group of women in my pharmacy class have continued bible study on rotations through Google Hangout on Wednesday nights and it is awesome to have their support. We are currently working through a study on the Proverbs 31 woman (my favorite passage) and also find time to share stories about our internships.

I had a wonderful meditation on Saturday morning that I want to share. I was feeling as if my practice wasn't focused enough and had some flaws so I started from the bottom up with Gabby Bernstein's Beginner's Guide to Meditation. I highly recommend this read for anyone who would like to start meditating or would like to refresh on the basics! I made it 7:38 minutes into the Ek Ong Kar Sat Gur Prasad (example track) mantra doing Ujjayi breathing without my mind wandering. My goal is to build time on this practice daily!

Organized color coded planner

I have made an effort to utilize my planner more. I believe neglecting to do so has contributed to my feelings of being scattered. I got in the habit of not writing a majority of items down and they got stuck in my head. Braindumping 101, Tori. Also, trying to get back into using my planner to document the details of daily life. 

Urban Bean MPLS Gary Coleman

Blake and I met up for coffee, again, but at Urban Bean. The place was OK... I just don't think I 'got it'. For instance, what's this Gary Coleman business (pictured on cup and wifi connection)? But, I did low-key (high-key) envy the neat penmanship on the chalkboard menu.

I have rotated the same 8 outfits for work for the last 8 weeks so not much variety there. Where I am usually able to break the mold is on the weekends. You know I love my statement necklaces and especially with graphic tees. The necklace shown has since been discontinued but I linked some alternatives here and here (apparently this style is hot thanks to Kim K, or me, and many similar styles are sold out!).

organized student

Assignments and responsibilities completed:

  • Resolved drug therapy problems left pending
  • Completed PSAP module on Overweight and Obesity
  • Taught a new diabetic the ins and outs of insulin

This & That

This week I have made a conscious effort to get physical activity in daily. I only have 2 more weeks left of this rotation and in this city but I have been able to use a guest pass at my dad's gym. Twice a week I do weights and the other 5 days I do a little cardio, or have this week anyway. Taking it rather easy and putting most of the focus in just showing up in hopes that this habit sticks.

How was your week?



  1. Hey Tori! I really like this post format of sharing snippets of the week. 7:38 without wandering that's impressive. One day I will get there. I have added Gabby's book to my reading list.

    1. Hey! It's my best effort at being accountable for checking in. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Fun post. I enjoy seeing how other people keep up with their schedule. I have a digital calendar, but have daily to-do's in a moleskin journal.

    1. Hi Julie! I did give iCal a solid try a few years back but just have to have pen and paper. I also love seeing how people organize their schedules! Can't go wrong with Moleskine. Thanks for leaving your thoughts :)
