Today is seriously the Mondayest of Mondays I’ve had in a while. Literally, when I remembered it was Monday and I needed to post something, I thought, “Fuuuuuuuuuck, it’s Monday.”
But it’s week 6 and I’m not about to miss a Monday now!
I’m just EXHAUSTED. I work pretty much all weekend, so sleep, work, eat, repeat has been my life this past week. On the bright side, only 5 more shifts at my current assignment!
I don’t know if it’s just the end being in sight, but I honestly cannot freaking WAIT for this contract to be over. I’m just over this whole hospital. Last week, I posted a recap of my first travel nurse assignment in Albuquerque. I want to do another recap after every assignment, but honestly, I feel kinda bad about the one I’m gonna write here. I love the people and coworkers I work with, but I’m ready to GTFO and never look back. There’s certain things that are just blowing my mind about the practices here — which I guess I’ll mention in my upcoming recap! — and it’s crazy how people don’t realize how unsafe some things get?? Maybe the nurses here just don’t know any better? I can’t even pinpoint WHY this hospital is so “bad”, all I know is I have lots of stories about shit that shouldn’t happen and YET. It does.
I’m also trying to work on finishing all my Iceland posts by the time this contract is up… which means I’ll need to buckle down and do it to it this weekend! I’ve been slowly (slowly) going through all the pictures and tweaking them on Lightroom, but hopefully I’ll have them all scheduled and ready to post by this weekend… because in just 2 weeks I’m off on yet another vacation, and can’t have that much build up PLUS my contract #2 recap in my drafts!
Surprisingly while looking at this week’s pictures, I only posted ONE pic of Iceland. I still have soo many more amazing pictures to share, but my daily life can get exciting too! I also see a trend with Sunny appearances and, of course, coffee (full disclosure: I don’t really drink coffee, those are both pics of chai tea lattes!)… a necessity for any nurse working 5/6 days in a row.
Until next Monday!
