Feels weird to be writing about yesterday today... So yesterday was my first official full time shift!! I oriented until 3pm then I was on my own!! I work today again and I'm on my own all day. Saw doctor S yesterday at work.... That was an awkward moment and for a minute I think he may have recognized me. Saw a past resident from Oaklawn, their brother was admitted on the floor and they were there with their mom. I avoided them like crazy!!
Work was slow but steady and I had so much fun with it!
I made my schedule for the next 8 weeks out... I don't know exactly how to express what I'm feeling. I don't WANT to say I'm proud of myself because its hard for me to congratulate myself on things I I do good, but I am so happy that I am persistent in what I want and I go for it. I also got a Christmas bonus yesterday which was nice!! YAY!!
Someone asked me at work yesterday why I am down here from grand rapids, and why I haven't moved back up. I told her than I haven't moved back up because of this Goshen hospital job. I told her how badly I wanted to move back home and that we were looking, then I got this job and it felt to me like a dog that this is where I needed to be right now. Maybe this isn't where I plant my family's roots, but for the time being this is where I belong with McKenzie and Elsie.
Not much happened yesterday- busy with work...
Til later - Sarah
Put a picture of Elsie up on my locker @ work :0)
