What struggle, you ask? (Or at least I imagine you asking…) Life, frankly.
First, the good news: I got a new job! In the same field, with some added responsibilities, at a brand new (not open yet) clinic with a new company. I’ve worked with the nurse before, and she’s cool. I like my manager (and his manager seems pretty cool, too). It’s a bit more money, different days, and seems like it will be a lot less stressful. I’m looking forward to the change, but I’ll miss my current boss, and my patients (although dialysis is a small world, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see some of them in the future). I start the 19th: 2 weeks of orientation in Dallas, training in Fort Worth, then to my home clinic. So…excited, but a little bit scared (I’ve been in my current spot 4 1/2 years.)
School starts again in a couple of weeks. I have 2 full semesters and one half-semester to get my B.A. Then I’ve pretty much decided to go for my Master’s in Journalism. Words have power. I want to use them (For good, of course.)
The temperature around here lately is 100-105 degrees. Every day. The actual temperature, not the heat index. Ugh. So getting outside and working out is….not happening. I have been doing some yoga inside, though.
Writing/editing: getting back into the swing of things with that. It’s hard, re-learning old habits. But so worth it!
So, yeah. A lot of changes around here. Here’s hoping they’re good ones.
