these past few months have been extremely busy. i’m in my last semester of undergrad and at this point, i’m just scrambling to finish everything on time. i got hit with mono in february so i was out for a 2 weeks and that really set me back. in addition to that though, my senior slide is at an all time high. i’ve been trying very hard to manage everything and i am, i just put everything off to the very last minute which always isn’t the best of ideas.
clinical’s been tough. i had a very difficult day preceptor who has a very intense personality. i’ve never felt so belittled in my life and was always so anxious when it came to working days with her. good news though is that i won’t have to work with her any longer. andra, a mankato clinical instructor contacted the clinical education specialist and she emailed me to ask me to share with her what my experience has been like with sarah and hell, i told her exactly what it’s been like. so they are currently in the process of looking for a new preceptor. i’m excited yet concerned about one, seeing sarah again on the unit and two, my schedule not being able to work out… but i dunno, i’m having a pretty decent feeling about this. i don’t think i’d be a horrible nurse, i just need more practice and a better role model.
as for my personal life, mike is great. we always manage to have a good time. we are complete opposites and it generally works out. although today, i don’t know if it was because i was on my period or what but we were getting a redbox and we realized our preference of genres don’t match quite well like our music interests. but hey you know what, that’s what keeps things interesting =] one thing that still kinda bothers me is that he’s so bad at texting and calling. i guess it’s just something i’m going to have to get used to… D=
as for sip, the future doesn’t look too fuzzy at this point. the board’s been recruiting people who we think could potentially benefit or who’s values align with SIP and i think it’s working. we’ve got about six people already interested! and just yesterday, i talked to christina about running for us and i think she may be interested in running for prez and if she does, i’m stoked! because she’s passionate and i really think should could bring sip to another level and carry it through. it would be such a waste to see sip die out because i honestly think the organization could benefit so many students. so i’m realllllly excited. i’m just honestly hoping for the best at this point. keep your fingers crossed for us!
