A Toothy Monday

leave a comment »

A co-worker was grabbing lunch in the cafeteria when she heard someone behind her say,

“Ugh! It smells like a dentist office!”

If I was in denial before about the dental smell getting down deep, I believe it now. Which is why I jump straight into the shower right after work. The lingering smell of drilled teeth and cement is not attractive.

And while I’m on a spiel about dentation, how about you parents out there get it through your head that putting soda/juice/gatorade in their bottles is a BAD IDEA?!? I have seen so many kids come in with blackened teeth… or what’s left of them. It’s sad to see a cute kid with a nubbin smile.

Come on, Mom and Dad – how about you brush your kids teeth? I don’t care if they’re just baby teeth, but you should be ashamed you allowed your children to get to this state.

Failure is not an option

I had a lecture quiz yesterday. There were some questions I wasn’t too sure of, but I thought I passed.

Wrong.

The Student Life… Again

leave a comment »

I’m in my second week of classes. Biology, to be specific.

Why am I taking it again?

For starters, I took it ten years ago, and for PA schools, you need at least one Bio classes taken within the last five years. My last classes were six years ago. Another reason is because I need reccomendation letters. At least three from professors. Science professors.

So here I am, waiting outside of Bio lab. Post exam, the first one. I was so worried about it. Now, I feel very meh – I suppose I did alright. There were a few I had doubts, but for the most part the material felt familiar. But I did study. Maybe cram would be a better word. But I do take time every day to go over the notes and read the chapter. Like all good students are supposed to.

You would think since this is a refresher, this would be a piece of cake. And for the most part it is, but the way it is being taught is not ringing any bells. For example, the last lecture and lab covered organic molecules. It was giving me flashbacks of orgo. Organic chemistrymy mortal enemy. I don’t remember Bio being like this the first time! But it depends on the teacher, I guess.

Okay, time for lab.

It’s been a while, yes.

But I’m a bit conflicted at the moment. I’m doing the whole RN bit, but I don’t know if this is what I want to be. I want to do more.

Yes, this is vague. But I’m still thinking about it.

When I figure it out more, I’ll be less vague. Maybe.

Job market is tough. Talking to one of my classmates that is still looking for one. I suggested looking further away, like I did… but it seems that positions have dried up here as well.

She’s thinking of volunteering now. She realizes she won’t really be working as a nurse, but it’s something, right?

Stamp of Approval

While running around grabbing supplies, I pinched my finger between two doors.

Yeah… don’t think I’m ready to do that kind of case on my own.

The Never Ending Case

leave a comment »

My room has only had one case today. I left the room at noon for nursing orientation and came down during a break. The case is still going on.

We started at 7:30. It is now 13:30.
Hopefully it will be done when I get back.
