day 1 of convergence was wonderful! ok, i only had 2 hours of sleep and had to call it a night by midnight, but it was still all i could have hoped for!
first, i went with the gothic donna reed, with a slight wednesday slant, for my first fashion day. i wore a black 50s day dress with petticoats. no pearls (i need a set of grey pearls to perfect my gothic donna reed!) but the rest was all there. all i needed was a black vacuum cleaner. today is sally and tonight will be the premiere of my new corset! i took a picture of my outfit, but i was so tired all my neck muscles looked very stressed. not a pretty picture. hopefully there are some candid photos out there somewhere.
i have been seeing a bunch of people i haven’t seen in a long time. obviously, they ask me how nursing is going. my answer is it is going really well. that i am very satisfied. and i am. now that i don’t “need” my coworkers, they are much nicer to me. and i can just ignore them if they are being super clique-y. i still spend a lot of time WITH my patients. it is making the drive easier. i don’t dread going to work so much. i enjoy my work. still a little nervous i am missing stuff, but i feel like that is healthy. thinking i know everything will just put my patients at risk. anyhow, it is glad to share such positive feedback with my friends.
and i love telling them gross stories.
i still want someone to come home to, but life is good. i have balance, for now, that gives me the strength to wait. hey boyfriend, here i am!
