Howdy there! I’m in especially good spirits as I am writing this from a beautiful courtyard in Portland, Oregon, to enjoy the first long weekend of the new year!
This week was the first eventful week of the quarter. This being my second quarter of nursing, I got the chance to visit the hospital to learn new procedures and documentation methods. After hearing numerous horror stories from more experienced nursing majors, I was pretty nervous about starting this quarter. While at times I felt like I was just thrown into the whole thing, everything went smoothly, and I’m glad to have gotten a feel for working in the hospital.
The best part of the week was having some friends from Southern California visit. I found myself working more diligently than usual to get everything done so I could enjoy the rest of the week with my friends. I took them to the basketball game against UC Santa Cruz, watched some friends play intramural futsal, and went into the city to show them around the better half of California.
This week has been stressful, but having my friends around made it much more relaxing and enjoyable. Even though we’ve only been back in school for two weeks, this long weekend is more than a little welcome. I hope you can all enjoy the weekend and keep in mind what this holiday stands for—freedom for all in the United States. Toodles!
