I am fast approaching the end of my course, but of course it's not going to be plain sailing, is it? Got an e-mail today saying I need to do more hours on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where I am rota'd on next week. NICU had no idea I was turning up when I rang them on Monday, so I need to call them tomorrow and get some shifts allocated. Also, I am only down for one week, but uni wants me to do two weeks, even though there is no time left for me to do this. So I need to also call uni to ask them WTF I can do to sort this out. I only technically need 2 weeks more of hours to finish my required hours on the course, but I still have a couple of small things I need to finish on labour ward. So I might end up doing a whole month, just to fit in both. I dunno.
To be fair, though, I would walk through broken glass barefoot if it meant I could qualify, so I'll work something out. I just might not get a gap before finished the degree and starting work. >_>; I was hoping to have a couple weeks off to gain my energy, but I'll just have to take things as they come.
Other than that... I am ok. My bonsai are ok. The snakes are ok. Life is ok. I've also nearly finished knitting the jumper I'm making Dad for his birthday (half a sleeve left to go... :D), which is pretty cool. Pics of that to follow when it's done, too!
Oh, and I watched the first episode of 'The Flash' and hated it. Am I getting old, or is everybody in it way too young and pretty? -___-; I know it's a fantasy-type superhero show, but seriously? Why do they all look like they're twelve? Even the sort-of-professor-X-but-not guy and the world-weary cop look way too young to me.
When the hell did I get so middle aged??
