today started out to be incredibly boring and uneventful. my clinical group's doing our health department
rotation and four of us were actually at the health department building in downtown bradenton. amanda r. and i were in the immunizations clinic and all we did was give flu shots
to anyone who wanted them.
it got to be really busy around ten or so and i had so much fun. we ended up doing between forty and fifty injections between the two of us and everyone i stuck said they hardly felt it and that i'm really good at it so i'm patting myself on the back for that. amanda and i were taking turns filling up the syringes with half a milliliter of the flu vaccine and sticking them in the cooler so we'd have them ready for when we had people coming in together. some of the cutest and funniest elderly couples came in and i really had fun teasing them. my favorite cheesy line was, "okay, i've only done this once before. does that make you nervous at all?" so cheesy but it brought the lols dammit!
i had to stick a three-year-old with a DTAP
immunization and the mother freaked out more than the kid did. i thought she was going to hit me for making her ugly kid cry and she made me feel really bad so i left the room after i stuck the bandaid on the kid. ah well! the pleasant older people made up for it.
there's a chili cook-off tomorrow on main campus
and we're required to go. i don't eat chili but whatever, i get to bank some clinical credit hours for it! after that's over at one, i'm going to head over to manatee community college
to re-register and enroll in spring classes and turn in my application for the nursing transition program. hopefully i'll get to start up AS RN school
next may and get all that going so i can get back to USF the year after that. i can't take too many classes next semester but i'm going to try for at least three because i want to get my prerequisites
out of the way as quickly as possible!
i'm still excited as hell about school. as odd as it may sound, i can't wait to keep jumping through these hoops. i don't think i'll be happy with myself until i finish grad school and maybe take the MCAT
and try for admission into LECOM
. they have a campus right next to the school i attend now.
i have more but i believe that's it for now. that was fun.
