You know it’s been a slightly stressful 2 weeks of working life when you’re in bed at 9:30pm every night due to the crap sleep you’ve gotten from nightmares about chart notes and making incomplete nutrition care plans. It’s like internship allllllllllllllll over again.
All I want is some good news that the crap ton of time, stress and energy I put into internship FINALLY paid off.
The odd thing internship has done to me:
8 hour work day, 2 hour break, 4 hours of studying. Repeat.
I’m starting to be over with interning now..
(Although I’ll probably take this back when I’m officially no longer a student.)
“Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them.”
What’s getting me through him being gone for three weeks: the kind, mushy texts showing that he misses me as well. Guess it goes both ways, eh?
Stress-picking sort of week. Stress at home, stress of my case study coming up, over analysis of life whenever I’m in a stressed mindset - the next few weeks will be not-so-fun.

I’m in love.
Much needed Friday of randomness to get the mind off of some stressfulllll internship periods. Trying out Hamburger $2.85, FINALLY going to Fly Over Canada (and getting double the fun with their special Fly Over China this month as well), eating farrrrrrrrrrr too much in Aberdeen, and ending the night with animated Frozen.
Perfect start to (what will hopefully be) a productive, case study filled weekend.
Goal of the week: to figure out what’s wrong with me. I tend to brush off small medical things that seem to come up (I’ve never liked going to the doctor ever since I had random issues as a kid). After some EXTREME pushes from the guy, and my mum emphasizing the fact my grandma had lung issues even as a 20- something, I’m starting to get worried.
Frustration: doctor’s have told me that I’m a young, healthy female, so it’s probably nothing. After 4 months of non stop swallowing/breathing issues, I’m hoping someone will take me more seriously. Maybe it’s stress induced, but it’s something more, I’m just wanting the stupid problems to go away..
It’s not even 8:30pm and I wish I could be fast asleep right now.. you know it’s been a long week when..
