a little bit of nothing....

i am really enjoying music lately. i mean i've always liked music, but i feel really at peace when i am listening to it, like i can think inside my own head. thankgoodness hubby doesn't seem to mind me walking around with earphones in constantly....

i was thinking back about my approach to school and how different it is now that i already have my career. i mean like when i went back to school for nursing dom was 7 months old and there was a certain cense of urgency, like ok i have to get it right the first time....graduate on time...

now i am so lazy about it. i mean i do the work, but getting my bacherlors won't mean anything different for me except that i can then get my masters. no pay difference, no status difference. those aren't really bad things its just that there isnt that urgency....

anyone else go back to school after you already had a degree? how was it for you?


my patient the other night football tackled me the moment i walked into the room, she was sitting on the edge of the bed and as soon as i got in there she got me.....we were like slow motion as she leaned all her weight on me...

and we went backwards.....

and i frantically waved my arms reaching for something-anything

and as we were going down she was like "oh jineen, i missed you..."

yeah, um me too, now get off me and get your ass back in bed.....



later that same night...but different patient:

um nurse...

yes?

do you guys keep anything for a snack around here?

sure, what do you want?

some strawberries and whipped cream

oh yeah? i'm not sure if we keep that kind of stuff.....

well what else am i gonna use to convince you to be my girlfriend?


ahhh, yes the joys of being a nurse:)

I haven't gone back to school. I can't imagine starting over again but I wasn't very good at school...high school or college.

In the social work field, A LOT of people get their Master's degree. But I just have no desire. I don't want to be a therapist, and I like what I'm doing.

hey, check out Greg Maswell...I think that's his name. I recently heard him on Grey's Anatomy...he's AWESOME!

Sarah said...

sorry, Greg Laswell. Check out the song "You Ghost", which I believe is a cover.

I haven't gone back to school either. So I have no input. But I love your nurse stories. :)

Getting tackled by a patient...wow! :) I'm loving music right now too.

Christina said...

Hahaha... love the last story! It's funny what (sometimes) people think they can get away with saying.

Stopped by from SITS -- hope your day is going well!
