How 'bout that?

Just got a semi-job offer. I am excited. At first, I was hesitant to work at a retirement home, only because I've heard horror stories about employees who abuse the residents. I know it happens, and it breaks my heart to think about.
But that shouldn't stop me from accepting an offer from such a place. I feel like if anything, I do need to take that job. If only to make one person's life a bit easier. I bawled my eyes out after my first day of clinicals, but it was only because I absolutely fell in love with the people that I was able to help that day. That's how I know this is what I should be doing.

Thought of the day.

I'd like to thank the "Hoarders" marathon on A&E for giving me the motivation to FINALLY clean and organize my closet.

What's up, Blog?

I am currently having a love affair with pistachio nuts. They might be the most delicious little snacks in the world. Of course, they're so ridiculously expensive that I can't afford to buy them very often. But maybe that's one of the reasons I enjoy them so much?

In other news, I have almost completed my CNA training. I passed the class & finished up all of my clinical hours. (Clinicals were an amazing experience, by the way.) So now all I have to do is go take the state test- which consists of both a written and a skills exam. I've been kind of putting it off, because I'm not sure that I'm fully prepared to take it quite yet. I am a terrible test-taker. But at the end of the day, I can only study so much... I know what I really need to do is just bite the bullet & go take the dang test. So wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.
