the slightly awful day

things i don't like:

  • feeling overwhelmed
  • making dumb mistakes in front of a doctor
  • grumpy, bossy, unhelpful nurses
  • patients' husbands who make jokes about their sex life, telling you how you feel about the jokes (and they happened to be very wrong. i was NOT secretly hiding my laughter. i was trying not to show how repulsed i was!)
  • not knowing i am getting a new patient, until after they have arrived
  • crying during my lunch break

things i like:
  • parents who pray for me
  • nurses who help out
  • thankful patients
  • knowing i did my best
  • getting a letter from my best friend in brazil
  • coming home, putting on my favorite sweatshirt & climbing in bed
