Fact: I "successfully" made it through the first day.
-However, it would not have happened if it weren't for all the prayers and warm thoughts sent from you guys, facebook friends, IRL friends, and family!
Fact: I did not cry!
-This is also a great accomplishment if you know me at all!
Fiction: I made a middle schooler angry.
-I annoyed a young boy when I asked if he washed his hands after using the bathroom....HELLO just wash your hands....I don't want your fungus!
Fact: The parking space I was ever so excited about was occupied this morning.
-It was sad.
Fiction: 4 years of college will prepare you for your 1st day of work.
-HA...to me, a majority of nursing is on the job training. school is for learning why, jobs are for learning how. And I don't think anything will ever prepare you for your 1st day anywhere!
Fact: I'm scared that I won't like my job....but I also think that's coming from me being completely overwhelmed and underprepared for my first day.
-I will give everything I can to this job, and if after 9.5 months I am unhappy there will always be a need for pediatric nurses (at least I hope there will be in a year...)
-I think this is a totally normal feeling. I expect to really start to understand what I'm doing, and begin to love it. I will keep you all updated!
Fact: this picture makes me happy....
Yes that is a fanny...and I rocked it...(only in the apartment though!)
Thank you all for being such great supporters! Slipping away to read my comments helped me along the chaos of today!
