Now Playing: Open House
Many times I have tried to journal. They were called diaries when I was young. I remember writing in my diary when I was 13 about my first boyfriend. It lasted 3 days. I tried again when my first son was born. I think I lasted 4 days. There might have been a couple more times but it never lasted.
Everywhere you go today they say journaling is good for your mental health. Well we will see. The plus with blogging seems to be that I can type my thoughts instead of writing them longhand. I can type wayyyyyy faster than I can write and my penmanship is atrocious. So I am going to try to do this type of diary and see if it can get me through the next nerve wrecking part of my life.
You see, I just graduated from nursing school as an RN. I passed NCLEX a couple weeks ago, got my license in the mail and now......a job. *gulp* School was fast, busy, hard, exciting and nerve wrecking. But after two years I had become use to it and I was good at it. In the last two years I recieved A's in all but one of my classes and that was an A-. I won't complain about that. My teachers and fellow students all complemented me on my knowledge and confidence. Little did they know I was shaking like a leaf each time I went to clinicals. I had nurses ask me how long I had been working as a LPN before. I must put some kinda air of confidence out into the world.
So this last week I spent getting references together, writting up my resume and looking for jobs. I applied at 3 different hospitals near here. All three applications were done online. Anyone feel like they are throwing their application into the wind by doing it online from home? Two of the three hospitals sent me back emails saying the recieved my application. So does that mean the third one didn't recieve it? I'm a wreck again. My girlfriend, Heather, says that I worry too much and to just relax. Ok, blogging is that relaxing? or just therapeutic? or just taking up time so I have less time to worry? Oh who knows and who cares. Opps, my pop is in the freezer, better get it before it explodes again.
ahhhhhhhhhh........good, diet caffiene free coke......just a bit slushy...perfect timing
hmmm....maybe this blogging thing is good. I totally forgot supper. One bad thing that came out of nursing school. I totally blew my diet and gained back all the weight I had lost 5 years ago. I had tried Atkins religiously for two weeks and lost 20 lbs, so I continued on it for the next 6 months and lost another 30 or so lbs. I felt great, slept better, had more energy. And now I'm back into this huge obese body. So last week I started back on Atkins, blew it on saturday and started back up again today. It is amazing how quickly I start to feel better. Hopefully I can keep myself on the atkins lifestyle for a bit longer than a week and then start walking a bit. I have a couple favorite sites that I go to when I am doing atkins. Atkins bulletin board and Atkins recipe board This looks like plenty for a start, so I think I'll finish watching this movie in peace. Later everyone
