I am done with this semester's clinicals!!! No more waking at 5am and writing 20+ page care plans haha. I'd like to talk about my last day of clinical though since it was a new experience to me. Our group gets to do rotations in the OR and so I got a chance yesterday to sit in on one and watch them use the Da Vinci which is basically a robot they operate for minimal invasive surgeries. I would never have thought I'd get the chance to experience something like this and I was in there for about five hours watching the surgeons and nurses do their job. Once the surgery was done I left and wandered around on the floor looking in on other surgeries that were going on. My group mate got to sit in on a open surgery which I would've preferred cause I like all the gross anatomy and looking at the underlying muscles and bone fascinates me.
My kindle paperwhite came in! It ordered it a month ago and it was on backorder, but not no more. I had an internal debate whether I should buy it or not because I'm all for paper books and I feel that with technology and everything the way it is books will become obsolete one day...I hope it never comes to that. After two months of looking at it the bf got fed up with it and just bought it saving himself another six months of me asking 'is it worth it?' haha. I feel like I betrayed my beloved paper books and I will still continue to buy books, but if I'm traveling anywhere having a kindle is convenient. Plus I can read all the smutty books without anyone knowing the better..
Honestly, I'm not one to splurge on new gadgets and I don't think I've purchased anything remotely technological besides my old blackberry. My labtop was a birthday present and the iphone was also given to me...my sister says I'm spoiled haha. I mean I liked my first labtop a lot even though I had to angle the wire to get it to turn on and it would whir away like it had asthma and my blackberry was great! I loved typing notes cause of the clackclack sound the keyboard made.
Now that I think about it I didn't even buy the kindle so I guess that's also given to me..
First book I bought was Pride and Prejudice :) I love how the first sentence goes "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
The labtop got fixed by the mister. He's such a sweetheart. Only five more weeks til the end of the semester and I'm definitely counting down the days. Finals and HESI exit exams are about to begin so I gotta step it up and make a A in at least one of these damn classes.
Planning a trip to Denver next month. I absolutely abhor the cold so why Denver? Because I want to try snowboarding and to actually see snow. I don't think I ever got to build an actual snowman. For now I prefer the bipolar weather Texas gives us.
