I was on a role blogging the first part of the year, but I haven't had a chance since I started my new job and school. Life has been incredibly crazy the last few weeks. I started my first shift at the hospital last weekend. I learned so much in my first two nights it was exciting. I think I made a good decision by working at the hospital during school, because I think it's really going to help me in school. We have our first test this week and most of the material we are covering is stuff I have already learned in the hospital. I also start my clinicals this week at a nursing home, so that should be interesting.
I work the night shift, 7 pm to 7 am, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (for now). The first few times I really didn't get tired, but after the fourth shift I start to crash about 3am, and coffee doesn't do the trick so now I have started drinking a sugar free redbull around 3 and it keeps me going until 7. Hopefully my body will adjust to my new schedule. So needless to say I'm ready for summer break already ;) I feel like I have been separated from the world the past few weeks, I don't have time or energy for anything outside of family/work/school, but I know it will all be worth it soon.
