Ok. its been a pretty crazy week. I finished my first official week on CCU. I really really like it, although I question my critical thinking skills a bit. The one thing that comforts me is that I am sure everyone does that's on orientation... and even after that I would think! My preceptor keeps wanting to go over hospital basics that I am familiar with. That frustrates me from time to time, but I know that she means well. She is pretty funny and is willing to review ANYTHING, which is also very cool! I think that we are going to get along pretty well! It's actually kind of funny. I felt great about my week when I was just finished it last thursday night, but since then I have had a growing feeling of 'maybe it didn't go so well' since. Talk about self sabotage!! I am eager to get into the second week and see how that goes! Surprisingly the day shift has been an interesting shift of pace. I like the fact that you don't lose a day in the 'turn around'. I was also amazed to find that the commute was actually a little shorter! One day I will definitely have to give it a try!
Friday night T and I went out for dinner at "Jillian's" and had a pretty darn good time! For those who are not familiar with that establishment.. it is basically a vidio game alley with a restaurant. I spent entirely too much money, but in the end I may be able to afford a nice travel mug with my ticket winnings!!
Saturday night T and I took her mom out for mothers day at a french restaurant. It was an interesting experience. I had liver pate and creme brule, which was pretty darn good, but also pretty darn expensive... lol. As far as life experiences it was worth it though.
This week I am working Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I am really looking forward to a long weekend next weekend! :D
