Introspection [Mar. 27th, 2008|03:49 pm]
[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

Everytime I get on here I always want to delete everything I've written before. I feel like I've gone through so many phases in the past 6 years its ridiculous. Honestly once a year I think I feel like an entirely different person. The one I regret the most is the creepy religious stage, because I never felt like a real person, like with my own thoughts and beliefs and whatever.

I think the reason I've been thinking about it so much lately is because I've been doing an oncology clinical all semester. I had part of it at Akron Children's hospital and the other half is an adult cancer floor. At least with the adults, you can think to yourself that they've lived a good life. They've gotten married, had kids, did things that they loved. Some of the patients I have are younger than my parents. One day out of nowhere they find out that they only have a few months to live. Life is just so..transitory. One of my patients was actively dying and he was terrified. He just wanted someone to be with him, to rub his back and hold his hand and help him process it all. what do you say to someone in his situation? I'm not trying to be cliche and get all carpe diem, I don't even know if i'm trying to make a point about anything.

I haven't done anything really in about a month.. It's been that long since final exams. I finally got a job, I have a physical tomorrow and I start orientation on wednesday. I'll be working at a nursing home right next to campus. I'm married and I feel like I'm not old enough to be married, but I'm happy.

So, I'm getting married May 26th. I'll be home for about a week before that probably, and from then on I'll be in Canton at least until I graduate.

Just thought someone might be interested in knowing, I guess.

I'm engaged now, and still killing myself to get through nursing school.

I haven't updated in forever. My cell doesn't work anymore so basically I just check my voicemail every once in a while from my house phone.

Africa was amazing..I want to go back eventually. I get assigned a nursing home to start my clinicals in the first week I get back to school. I'm really excited to start learning skills and actually doing something. In Kenya I helped Dr. Ward run some free clinics. We counselled patients with diabetes and cleaned and dressed wounds. I think its kind of funny my first experience actually doing something was in a filthy two room clinic in Africa. It was great to feel like I could enjoy what I want to do for a living.

I've been awake almost constantly for 3 days in a row. Hopefully tomorrow afternoon I will feel like it was worth it.

Not studying for my anatomy exam was probably not a smart choice.
