So, life has been treating me pretty good lately...|
I got through my first semester of Nursing School, and I'm getting ready to start my second (just three more to go). This semester is supposed to be the hardest. It's pretty much the one where they weed the people out who aren't serious enough. You have to really work hard and want to be there in order to pass. Let's just say my friends might not see me a whole lot in the coming months.
Work is going well so far. I just passed my 90 day evaluation. It's strange though because I've never really had a "job" job. All my other jobs have been something I've enjoyed, and this one, well... this one just pays my bills. I go to work, I come home, and I don't really feel much of anything about it. I guess the good side of it is that it's easier to leave my work problems at work and not carry them around all the time. But on the same token it's kind of.., I dunno, empty. I just miss taking care of people. I mean, that's something I felt really good doing. Maybe I'll get a job with hospice after this semester is over.
On another note... I've been going through some changes lately, with how I look at things and how I feel about myself, and while it's somewhat scary, I think I've come to some good realizations in the past few weeks. And... I dunno I feel like a cloud's been lifted or something (as corny as that sounds). I mean, I woke up this morning and realized that I'm happy... that I feel good about my life and everything that's going on right now. Nothing compares to that kind of peace. Perhaps I'll explain more later.
