Knitting Frenzy

I hate that it’s been so long since I’ve blogged, and when I do blog, I feel that I don’t have anything substantial to say.

That being said, I’ve been knitting a lot in the last year. Picked up crochet again. And today I googled what looms are all about and I’m curious to try  that out too.

 

I crocheted a throw recently. I’ll post about it later in more detail.

Work is work. I’m on call all week from tomorrow. Saturday I have vacation, so I’m going home for a little.

That’s all I’ve got for now.

Unexpected Birth

Working in the ED is not without its own source of entertainment. From drunks to drug addicts, to patients with actual medical illnesses and emergencies – there are plenty of cases to learn from.

A 20 year old girl attended ED with abdominal pains. She had just found out she was 39 weeks pregnant the other day. She screamed for help in the bathroom, not knowing she was actually in labor.

Nurse: Congrats, it’s a beautiful baby boy!

Boyfriend: If that baby’s term, it ain’t mine.

It was a full term, healthy baby boy…

New Year, Same Old Me

I don’t really have much to say at all. I just feel I should use this space more often.

So what’s happening lately?

  • I’m starting a set of nights today… Only they didn’t have cover from 17:00-21:00 tonight, so I’m doing a 17:00-9:00 shift today
  • Meeting my supervisor in the morning to go over the craptastic ePortfolio, which is a piece of shit way of documenting your work throughout training so that you can “graduate” when the time comes
  • Flying out in a week – to Canada – I can’t wait!
  • I’m getting close to reaching my personal goal of having reduced my educational debts to half. Yes, HALF! This is something else I can’t wait for!
  • I must work on my to-do list… it’s just so hard to get started
  • I’ve slowly created another locum wishlist… this is pretty and expensive toys I want but should not dip into my regular budget for, therefore I work extra shifts to afford extra things
  • Recently I’ve extended my domain name subscriptions and hosting… I can’t remember was I was paying before but I feel like prices have skyrocketed! And I didn’t have the lovely option of paying for a domain name for 10 years in advance like I have with others.

I think that’s it. I had started making a theme a few years ago… It’s still sitting on my desktop with a few PHP kinks I need to work out. At this rate, I don’t even know what’s new in the world of PHP so my theme may be completely outdated… I’ve got an exam coming up in April/May, but maybe after that I can start coding again.
