Oh what, oh what am I going to write tonight? Nothing really comes to mind right now. I am just so tired I suppose. I know it was a short week but I am consciously anticipating the coming workweek as I am again scheduled to do the long hours from 6:30 to 6:00. Just the thought of it takes away all my energy. Yeah, of course the overtime pay is good but it also requires more effort and more hard work. Both I really can’t seem to promise specially I have my own personal obligations to fulfill at home like cooking for dinner, cleaning up and doing other chores. I can probably do the shift three times a week, but five days straight is not something I am looking forward to. Then again who am I to really complain? I know I cannot really say NO as I understand that I have to do this until John gets fully trained to do closing. Adding to that, David is also going on a 2-week vacation starting on the 26th of this month. So yup, we are doomed. I am afraid the schedules are going to change and I have this gut feeling that they will be scheduling me to do closing those days. I hope not. And I guess that is my main concern so I had just to mention about the schedule to Marissa and Jennifer. I want to make it clear that my regular hours start at 6 in the morning…
So that is work… It is WORK indeed. But I like it as I get to learn more of the tests and the procedures involved case to case basis. I hope they will come in handy in the near future. I am really very appreciative of the chance that the Lab has given and is continuously giving me. The learning opportunity, the knowledge and the experience are truly priceless. Though it is not a big leap to where I want to be, I know every small step counts as well.
So, the journey towards self-satisfaction knowing I have career (not just a job) continues. Nursing might not be on its peak due to high rate of graduates and also due to the fact that companies are doing competitive hiring (meaning, hospitals hire only those who are experienced); I am still confident that when everything goes through, I will land on something way much better than what I have now. It is still far-fetch considering the fact that I am having some troubles with CHED regarding the release of my OTR but like always, my Mom and my Dad always find the way to make things right. What more could I ask for? They’ve given more than enough… and even with the distance, they still manage to give me the support I need. I am in debt… what else can I say?
