I have a gym membership! …kind of. Prompted by the heat, I decided to bite the bullet and pay for my school gym membership so I could run on a treadmill instead of on the surface of the sun that they’re calling the streets of Baltimore. A friend had told me that we could sign up for the year whenever, but when I got to the gym it turned out that I could only get a summer membership, which at this point, with two weeks left in the semester seemed a little silly, but I didn’t let that stop me. Two weeks of access to weights, and spinning classes, and a pool will be well worth it. I’ll have to sign up again in the fall, but I’m honestly just excited at the prospect of seeing young people outside of the school of nursing. The Homewood campus is abuzz with high school students right now, but in the fall there will be slightly more grown-up people, and even though I’ve never made friends at the gym before, it’s nice just to see some unfamiliar faces and remember there’s life outside of nursing school.
