Whoah. Been ages…
Yeah, still up…i have the day off tomorrow, my back is sore, i don’t think its work related, more of a cold coming on i think…
A lot of things have changed in the last couple of months and basically the start of 2011 has been really good. New job, money (for once) and just getting older, more responsibilities, new exciting things i want to do, people around me getting older, some changing their goals and traveling, some staying the same, some striving to be better and some just trying to get out of the cold.
Work - i am enjoying the challenge of waking up really early everyday, my body clock is stuffed but at work i am very supported and i think i finally feel i fit in and know my way in the operating suite. Being able to scrub and scout for what i know think are simple operations such as tonsils and eye lid cases to the harder ones such as FESS (look it up :P) Septoplasty’s etc. It has given me confidence early in my nursing career. The thing is though i get sick very easily (my back for example), i think im getting used to the early waking i am just really tired after a day of work, i need to exercise more, so i plan to soon (its just too cold lol), i think i will get used to it in time, but at the moment i struggle some days.
future - What i have already learnt is: I don;t think i want to stay in the hospital setting for too long, i dont like the hierarchy that’s there (but i guess that’s in all jobs). I don;t mind the shift work but i do not want to work full time…it just makes the weekends too short to catch up on all the things you want/NEED to do, and there isnt ME time or developing yourself or filtering yourself time, its something i miss from UNI days when you had so much time to DO NOTHING.
I want to TRAVEL, duh. I know nursing can help me do that. I want to go to all the biggest and best soccer stadiums of the world, watch Liverpool play at Anfield on a European Night, any night/ day. I want to go to Barcelona and the Nou Camp and watch a game there. Wembley, watch a cup final. Watch an international match. Go to the World Cup once in my life. But after all the sporting stuff, i just want to see the world, see and meet people of different cultures and places. After all that. (Maybe even before i do all that) I want to volunteer for a bit, use my skills and job and put it into real practice. What ever comes first, i think my goals are clear for me at the moment, I am very happy in who i am at the moment, the people in my life and the job i have. I look forward to the future, a future hopefully full of health, travel, inspiring people, inspiring places, sporting events, concerts, love :o lol, and most of all God’s will for my life fulfilled.
I know coz of my back i should be resting, but this verse has got me thinking and wanting to find out the answers…Matthew 5:48
Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
To put it simply. Does God want us to be perfect, and if so, how? I will spend the weekend figuring this out and hopefully share it with the BASIC leadership team before they all LEAVE ME to go on holidays. (jealous! i am lol)
I’ll end here for now, i will be blogging more, music wise ive been recording a bit :)
Take care all!
