The End Is Near…

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. Read more


Well here I am again…

Yesterday I came home after my supervisor gave me a very questionable but good report on my weekly evaluation. I decided to call my career adviser from school about it. Turned out, my supervisor had just called and told her that she could not supervise me because she does not have the time to watch me. Also, on a funny coincidental note, a family practice office called looking for an intern to fill immediately. At the time I called, they had closed, but they are in a place I like to work and a practice I’m interested in working with. So, as luck may have it, I may have another place to work without worrying about taking time off. Read more


My Ultrasound Results

Can you believe it!? Not only am I pregnant still, but I have twins! OOO this is so exciting! Well, I must admit I’m nervous and there’s a lot to be concerned about. I never thought I’d like the idea of having twins, but I do. I still do!

I am at about 7 wks 5 days at this point. Baby A is measuring at 7 weeks 5 days with a heart rate of 156. Baby B is measuring at 7 weeks 4 days with a heart rate of 150. This is the furthest I’ve ever been! Not to mention the first time I’ve ever had a pregnancy show the fetus at the same age as my actual pregnancy date. So far I’m due July 20. I am also dropped from the office I was at. I was a little disappointed about that. I really liked it there, but they are not an OB/GYN office. They are a reproductive endocrinology office and do not monitor pregnancies….just make them happen! Read more


My Job Interview (continued from the job search post)

Friday has arrived. It’s time for my interview. I started to get my things together, but I was unable to fit my school portfolio in the portable file portfolio that I had. I made a mad dash to the near by office supply store to find a portable portfolio large enough to carry everything, but compact enough that it didn’t look like I was packing my entire room to move there. I had to cancel my acupuncture appointment, but it was well worth it! I get into my interview clothes and head off to meet Sandy.

I got there probably about 12:35 which is early but not too early. I notified the woman at the front desk about my presence and sat down on one of the recliners. I didn’t recline…I wanted to, but I had to look professional even while I waited. I took noticed of the waiting room. It was kind of small and very purple (royal purple with a diamond pattern), but the people waiting looked very comfortable. I was a little concerned that more than half the people waiting were looking like they were sleeping. That implied they were all waiting for a long time to be called on. Not that it was a big deal, but it just confirmed how busy they really were. I waited for about 30 – 35 minutes before Sandy called me in. She didn’t extend her hand to get a hand shake, so I didn’t bother trying. She seemed to just want to get me in to the back room. Beyond the waiting room, the office turned to a loud orange color with the same diamond pattern on it. She took me into the back room which appeared to be old and traditional looking. Sandy explained this was the doctor’s office (I’ll call him Dr. Smith). She also explained the this was the original doctor’s office who told his wife to decorate the entire place of business except his office. That is why it looked so old. I did notice there were a lot of disorganized papers thrown about in the office. That only made Dr. Smith look more human to me. So far I am feeling very comfortable here. Read more
