The Working World

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

So I’ve graduated- how adult-like. Working full time, benefits and all. But is working all it’s cracked up to be? Some days, yes. Some days I love nursing. I love the chaos and the different kinds of people you help and work with. I love the ability to help but then the days, like yesterday with patients screaming and cussing out of their room, throwing garbage around, staggering around the hallways with scraggly clothes and hair and screaming at whoever listens…denying care and angry at it all….those days I wonder- what have I got myself into? I guess we are called to care for those who aren’t the friendliest, cleanest, nicest…but some days it just gets to you.

Shannon’s Graduated!

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

Shannon had her graduation ceremony from UBC nursing on Nov 21st. She has put a TON of work into this, and so it was pretty exciting to see her finally graduate. She’s only the second person that we know of in her mom or dad’s family to graduate from university (her uncle is the other one).
