I have really not blogged for a long time. I graduated from school, passed my national boards, and got a job a while back. I plan to blog these activities soon. Actually getting a nursing job has been super stressful. Maybe it's just my personality, but I find the whole thing to be on the verge of overwhelming. I lost over 40 lbs in November and December. I have started and stopped several things over the last few months, including learning the piano and moving into an early-twentieth-century 8-bedroom house by myself. Now, I have cut some stuff out and hope to have a less stressful life and start blogging again.
However, right now I have to decide what to do in the immediate future. Should I take a place in an ICU or start traveling after I pass (hopefully) my CCRN this autumn? I don't know, but an ICU job would mean being in my hometown for at least 2 more years. I don't know if I want to do that. However, ICU would be much better prep for either future traveling or advanced practice training. Do I want to spend the necessary time in the books, or should I continue with the leisure activities I enjoy and have not had time to do recently? Who knows. Will try to figure this out soon.
Also, if you are a reader, stay tuned for a new design role-out when I revise my info to reflect the fact that I am no longer a student.
