  1. A sense of purpose...

    by , 08-20-2008 at 12:30 PM
    Today I got to work on a cardiology unit and even though all I did was take vitals (via a cool machine!), give bed baths, and get water, I felt like I had a sense of purpose and what I did mattered. It was a good day.

  2. Frustrated.

    by , 08-15-2008 at 04:46 PM
    My car has a flat. I tried to fix it. I had a feeling after I slipped off the wrench while trying to get the lug nuts off, bad idea. Knowing me I'd seriously cause injury-kept thinking the wrench in my foot. Called AAA, apparently they couldn't find my account, which I just reupped it a month ago. Called Hyundai's roadside assistance, because that's the reason why I bought my car. There's no one on the hill in their network. So my car has a flat, my sister has the keys to the other two cars and ...

    You know when you start a project for someone, and when you're almost done you start thinking of all these details to add to it? Almost like you don't want to seperate from the project and make it last longer? I'm having that with my Picasso baby quilt. I'm thinking of making this:

  4. Certified Awesomeness!

    Before I go out and "celebrate" with my sister and dad:
    I passed my CNA class with a 97% and 141/150 (94%) on my final. I graduated on the honor roll (anything above 95%) and was 1% away from the valedvictorian spot. I also got perfect attendance. So yay! My professor said to my dad I'd be great in nursing school. Yay! And then all my family was psyched when I said I wanted to do N-Nicu or dialysis, maybe work at the blood bank.

  5. Karma and the art of niceness.

    I hate the word nice, I will admit it, but I figure this is a justified time... moving on.

    So today the universe was very interesting. I had this puppy outing (at Perris Hill Park outdoor pavillion, Roosevelt Bowl in San Berdu. This group is performing Jungle Book. Really good! Go see it if you can) and during intermission another puppyraiser was complaining about his neck being sore. So I was like "I'm a student CNA. Can I rub it?" who rejects a backrub? Plus at my clinical ...
