...since I raved about how much I love penguins...well I do
However that's actually not really what I wanted to say.
Life has been crazy busy these last few weeks. I started placement. This placement is so bipolar it's weird. One day it can be absolutely awesome and I won't stop smiling/laughing/doing things and the next it can be truly horrid and I'll do nothing but watch tv for over 5 hours of a 10 hour shift. And this literally depends on whether there is one particular member of staff in the house that day or not. I've never had to work in an environment where the atmosphere can be so different day by day. I've learnt so much about staff politics and I feel it's so unfair on service users that the whole house suffers because of one person. I have decided that I will endeavour to be positive every single day of camp this summer no matter what's thrown at me, who doesn't like who and whatever else might happen.
I have my visa appointment on Wednesday. I can't believe I got such an early appointment! I'm thankful because I didn't have many date options because of placement but at the same time it's come round so quickly and I still need to finish this stupid form off and pray my parents manage to get my proof of return letter back to me in time! stress.stress.stress. Oh and I need to get photos done just in case the embassy doesn't accept the absolutely beautiful photo of me that I've uploaded! Corr I'm feeling modest today The best part of having my visa appointment on Wednesday? My best friend has her appointment at exactly the same time so I'm ditching uni for the whoile day and we're gonna spend some time together...I'm mega excited for that because I don't see her that often and I miss her incredible amounts.
I've got a busy few days coming up as well...OSCE tomorrow (that's a stupid nursing exam tomorrow that tests I can communicate with patients...interesting as I don't plan to ever work in a situation with patients involved...hmmmm!), placement in the afternoon to chill out (pahaha yeah after that placement rant, it's because my fave staff are there and I'd be gutted to miss the whole day...and they did tell me I couldn't not come in...they're so persuasive!) and then Saturday morning I am going to London for my friend's 21st birthday party at Build-A-Bear, pure excitement. Saturday afternoon will be filled with travelling to get myself to Worcester (where a newbie from camp live) to meet up with aforementioned newbie and a few returning staff. Shall be a good laugh Get home Sunday afternoon, finish stupid visa papers and back to lectures Monday...blahhhhhhhhhhh!
Oh and for amusement, my bathroom has no light at the moment (well it does if I fancy inducing a seizure!) which is a bit annoying, especially as it's been like that for about 3 days but placement has meant I leave before office opening hours and return after hours Well tomorrow I have time so should get it sorted.
Right now to go look at why nurses measure blood pressure and what it can tell me...EURGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
