That’s right. the end of my externship is well within reach. In fact it’s this coming Monday! Well, of course that depends on the weather. It’s supposed to snow tomorrow and be icy throughout the weekend. If that’s the case, then I might not be able to make it to work on Monday and will have to go Tuesday. That’s ok. I enjoy it there.
One of the things that makes it enjoyable there is the compliments I get from the doctors, the patients, and even my colleagues. They are nice to me and they do give me advice that helps me do well in my job. Though they never asked me to join them for lunch 🙁 That’s ok, I do like to use that time to talk to Jason. It’s one of the things I look forward to during the day…talk to my husband about how my day is going. I just feel I’m in the right field.
The doctor and I were talking about how I have been helping her out in the office. I mentioned that I feel like I’m doing something that helps the patients feel better and to help the doctors work more efficiently. She very much agreed! I understand that I don’t have to be a doctor in order to have an important role in the office, though I still do want to advance my career at some point. I am considering nurse or ultrasound technician. Either makes more money and both work with the patients which I found is my niche. I enjoy it, and I think I’m good at it.
For now, however, my interning will be over, and I am free to take my certification exam whenever I feel I’m comfortable taking it. I will not be pursuing a job, though, until I have had these babies. I need to settle down and relax a bit. I need to focus on my health and taking care of myself and the precious cargo I’mÂ carrying around. Once they ar born, I’ll be mothering them for a while. Once Jason has settled into his own routine and I have completed my self-determined maternity leave, I will go back to searching for a job. I may even consider auditing a class if I need to.
I will miss work. I got myself in to a working groove, and now it’s time to go back to not being busy. In some ways, I’m looking forward to that, but I’m jsut afraid that I’ll get too comfortable, and it’ll be harder to get myself back into work mode. I’ll do it. I need the money and I do like working.
