always in a hurry
Yesterday was just another day at work…I started with four patients with the knowledge that I would be getting a post-op at some point during the night. As the night went on, I realized that my post-op wouldn’t be coming up until late in the night. While this bodes well for the rest of the night, it makes for a madhouse when they come up from the PACU at 9:00pm and I have ALLLLL the paperwork to do and four other patients to deal with…all while trying to get out on time. I wouldn’t have been worried if my manager didn’t yell at me on a daily basis about getting out on time. We’re just supposed to leave stuff for the next shift to do since nursing is a 24/7 job, but no one likes having stuff left for them. I did most of the paperwork (OBSCENE AMOUNTS), but I did it in a hurry and I left hoping I didn’t forget to do something. That’s all I think about all day.
You’re not supposed to dread going into work, right? Ugh.
the job search
On Sunday night, I applied to a job I (think I) would like…it’s at a large university hospital in the city. Any tips on getting my foot in the door? Should I call HR to “make sure” they got my resume? Maybe it’s too soon to start looking…but maybe not.
biking, day three
I went “the other way” on the local trail today, which was fun to explore. I don’t usually go that way because it becomes pretty isolated after about 2.5 miles, and I’m wayyyy too much of a worry-wart to be a female runner on an isolated trail. But, on a bike…I worry less because I can fly away from any scary people. :) I biked the furthest that I have yet (okay…not say much) and for the longest time. Woo! The only problem with this way on the trail is that it is mainly downhill on the way out and uphill on the way back…yikes! But I survived…my shin is kind of sore right now…I don’t think that’s from biking? Biking isn’t supposed to hurt…right? Gah. I foam rolled when I got home…fantastic.
Wednesday, September 30
16.31 miles in 1:12:27, avg pace of 4:26 (13.5 mph)
My speed was in between my two previous rides, so I’ll count that as a victory. I guess. I just miss my running shoes.
Okay, I don’t really have anything exciting to report today. Off to work…hoping it’s a good day…
