My New Year’s Resolution

I just wish I’ll be able to make these a reality. I’ll try my very best. 🙂

1. Eat more, drink more.
To eat more food, possibly nutritious stuffs and to drink more water.
2. Go earlier to bed.
To control my being nocturnal and give my body enough rest. Avoid exhaustion!
3. Exercise.
Fats are starting to deposit in my midsection :(.
4. Save money at least 20 pesos everyday.
5. Give myself a “new childhood”.
I’ve always felt there are a lot of things I should have done when I was at this particular age. It’s a feeling like I’ve missed a big part in my life. I was just then too focused finishing my studies that I forgot to chill out. This year I’m turning 24 and I’ve got to enjoy life and got to live more.

It’s so timely that this is what my horoscope says on the papers today:

“You need to branch out culturally–nothing is worse for you than stagnation! Your terrific social energy should help you to find new ways to have fun and explore your world.”

6. Blog more often.
–There’s nothing more to be said here.
7. Take pictures everyday.
8. Be closer to God and my family.

Another Twist of the Twist

My one month rotation at the Operating Room has come to an end. Though it was really a struggle adjusting not with the work itself but with the new workmate/s, I have seen my self becoming an OR nurse.

The experience was a roller coaster of emotions. The first week was the worst. I cried maybe 3 or 4 times as I got home sharing my experience with my mother. But after that terrible week, things and my outlook about OR and the people there have changed. I was able to adapt to the routine and how to avoid certain things so as not to become being lectured :).

And then one day, I was approached by our supervisor. She was to tell me a news from the nursing director. I expected it was about my retention in the OR (would-have-been nice touch to my CV). But it was not. After 4 weeks at OR, I will be reassigned. Not back at my first haven, the ER, or at ICU or at wards. The least I imagined it is. It’s at the Labor/Delivery Room.

Another real twist of my career. How will i pull it off? The LR/DR in our institution has only one staff per shift. And if any goes during a shift, it’s only for that staff to handle all along. GOD! I need a rescue.

I was given two weeks to be orientated and to familiarize the protocols. I’m now praying that the worst case would come around during these days so that I will know what to do while I’m still working with the “old” staff. teehee.

What do you feel about job rotation? How regular is it done in your institution? Share your thoughts.

New Month, New Challenge

It’s October and this month I’m taking on a new challenge in my life–in my career. I will be working in the Operating Room!

For 11 months, it’s been the Emergency room department that became my comfort zone, my home. And now with this change, I’m feeling scared and nervous of how will I be able to live up to the demands of the duties as an operating room nurse. God may bless me. Thy will be done.

Do you have your share with this experience, being swept from your comfort zone? How did you cope?
