Hot soup for a cold day ๐Ÿต

I start in the surgical cardiovascular ICU this week. Today I’ll be on the floor for an hour before I have to go to the SIM lab for the rest of the day.ย 

My last night on my old floor was bittersweet last week. I’m going to miss my awesome co-workers, my manager (whom I LOVE), and the sense of familiarity. I’m going to a floor where I don’t know anybody and I haven’t even met the manager yet because she just got hired. I’m nervous. I don’t know how the physicians and nurses communicate on this floor. I feel like I don’t know anything about hearts. All I’ve known for the last 5 years are brains and bones.ย 

BUT. I’m also excited. I think it’s good for me to feel uncomfortable. I don’t want to cruise through life without any challenges. I need to keep stimulating my mind. I need to keep improving my communication skills. I need to keep adapting. I think adaptability is so important in life.ย 

This move is also the first step towards my ultimate goal, which is to become a nurse anesthetist. So, while I’m sad to leave my old floor behind, I’m proud of the progress I’ve made and I’m going to keep making my way towards the future I want!

Back at the farm! ๐Ÿ˜

Oh. My. God. Why am I not surprised.

Girrrrl!

"I have a boyfriend who knows how to settle me,โ€ she writes. โ€œHe puts his hand on my chest and tells me boring storiesโ€ฆOn one of our first nights together I woke up apologizing for my snoring and he pulled out the two earplugs he had worn to bed so that he could hear what I was saying. It was one of the most romantic gestures I have ever seen."
