Sounds fair enough for a job description…eh? Well, similar to American Idol, The Voice, X-Factor, or America’s Next Top Model the competition is FIERCE! Chile…all I keep hearing is Debbie Allen playing in my head, “You want fame …Well, fame costs. And right here is where you start paying. With sweat.” I’m sweating all right, but it ain’t from dancing! I’m currently sweating it out for a dietetic internship!
On February 15, 2014, I hit submit on DICAS (Dietetic Internship Centralized Application System) and suddenly became a ball of nerves. Since then I have endured two dietetic internship interviews, one on the phone and one through Skype. In an effort to calm my nerves, I’ve partaken in too many glasses of wine and huffed and puffed through several workouts as I wait for April 6th, match day. T-minus 19 days to go! Stay tuned…

She was something else, right?
Did anyone else apply for the Spring 2014 match?
