School?? What??

So, school starts tomorrow morning. Not sure how I feel about that. I'm definitely ready for a routine again, just not so sure I want that routine to involve studying, long classes, and bathing old people. Although, this semester should be much better. We get to do our pediatric rotation this fall, so I'm pretty excited about that. We'll see if that's really where I want to end up. I've actually been thinking I might like mother/baby. You get to work with the babies after they're already born and cleaned up, and you get to work with the moms too, so there's opportunity for intelligent conversation, and the kids are too little to know how to fight back yet. Hmm...we'll see. Hopefully by the end of the year I'll have some sort of direction to my life. I can't believe I graduate in just 9 months. Totally not ready to be a real person yet! Eek!

Tonight I had to go to a meeting at work. At this meeting, our manager yelled at us for about 10 minutes about what a horrible staff we are. The whole time I wanted to laugh. See, our manager is totally non-assertive, and generally walks around with this fake smile plastered on his face like he has no idea what's going on. So to see him trying to act totally pissed off was kind of amusing. Especially when you factor in the detailed notes, complete with bulleted points, that he was reading from. It was quite entertaining, and not in the least bit intimidating.

I've been feeling much more like myself lately. Life is good.
