1st day as Extern II...

so now that school's out and life has changed in all kinds of ways, what's a girl who felt lost to do? work. make new job, & keep the old, one is silver & the other's gold...lol...well, now that i graduated school, i'm now considered an Extern II at the hospital until i pass the board exam (NCLEX...hopefully very soon and then i'll be RN). i hadn't worked there since before school let out and finals and so it was kind of like a 1st day today. and it was definitely my first full 12 hr. shift! it was actually so busy, that it flew by for the most part. more so than i thought 12 hrs. would! & it really felt different than it did as a student. and i was called nurse. what a weird feeling. and so, i've decided that since my temp job is happy i want to be there, why not keep that more laid back job too for awhile? as long as a cup of coffee awaits, i figure why not keep working. i feel a little like that scene in forrest gump where he just keeps running & running. maybe one day i'll stop. but for now back again tomorrow at 0645...off to zzzz...
