being sick sucks :(

sometimes i like to think about new things.

i want a good book to read to keep me from watching tv. i didn't have a tv at all this past school year and did just fine without it. now however, my sis, sam and i have gotten sucked into the "lost" series. none of us had watched any of the shows when they first came out, so we stated with season 1.
now, i fear, it has become addicting. its kinda what we do. i want to watch the box less and read more. any suggestions anyone?

work has been really great. i love the unit i'm on and all the people too. everyone's very nice and good about teaching new nurses. there are a group of nurses that i especially admire- they really really really know their stuff. i think i'd trust my lives to them if i ever needed hospital care. i want to be like them someday... be very confident in my knowledge yet willing to to admit when i don't know something and find an answer.

my director is pretty cool too. she is very up-to-date on new nursing practice and is a good bedside nurse when she's not in her white coat. the thing that i like most about her is her readiness to teach. she has never made me feel dumb for asking a question, and her advocacy for education inspires me to take hold of every learning opportunity i am presented with. i really think i'll love it here.

i take nclex tomorrow! <:-o !! i think i'm ready, though have not studied much. it makes me nervous to think that there's a lot more i could have done to prepare, but those that have taken it before me have said that i'll do fine. should i trust people so readily?

i'm starting to feel like a grown-up :-b

It's been a while. I do miss blogging.

I can breathe through one nare at the moment. It's been a little frustrating... I've had allergy/sinus problems as of late, and it hurts because when I lean my head forward, I can feel a sudden throbbing headache.

So besides the body-function update, I start work Monday. Graduation has come and gone, and I've been orienting all this week and last, and Monday is the first day I'll be in the unit :)

I'm excited to buy new cute scrubs.

I do believe it will be great. I can already sense that I will really love working here. One of the great things about this unit is that it is almost fully staffed. And that, my dear friend, is nearly unheard of in terms of nursing today.

I ran into an old friend tonight. Gosh, we hadn't seen each other since junior high. It 's always great to see someone you haven't seen in a long while of just stay friends with the ones you have. God, thank you for my friends.

:drip, drip, drip goes my nose: I think I have a leak. Rhinorrhea rather. Whatever I call it, I'll still have a chapped nose in the morning.
