can I just cherry-pick the bits of recent incarnations of Sherlock Holmes that I like because then I’d get Martin Freeman as Watson and the introduction of Irene from Elementary and the queereness of Andrew Scott as Moriary and the luciousness of genderswap from Elementary and the costumery/sets from the RDJ/Jude movies
and no one plays Sherlock exactly right so it kind of falls apart
In other news I’m volunteering at my church all day and have to leave in 15 mins and I have to check if my hair needs to be washed but I no longer have time for that
Update: hair is fine.
Other update: shit now it’s 13 minutes and I really should get off my phone and out of bed.
um so I’m midway through my last Diet Caffeine-Free Dr Pepper (BECAUSE IT’S DELICIOUS, THAT’S WHY) and two things hit me: I have to go alllll the way to the States to buy more, and holy hell I am craving sushi. specifically a yam tempura roll and a cali roll (BECAUSE THEY’RE DELICIOUS, THAT’S WHY).
it’s that time of night where I start contemplating taking a full-body shot of me and sticking it on FB because damn my legs look fantastic
but then I remember I have pastors and various Christian leaders as friends and probably shouldn’t do anything remotely provocative even if I’m wearing shorts and a tank top
How do I adult?
I graduated earlier this week from nursing school, write my RN exam in a little over a month, and my official start date for work (as an RN) is May 27. Also my parents are moving one province over in July so I have to find a house.
First of all, holy fucking shit.
Second of all, why do I still feel like I’m 12? I laugh when people combine the numbers 6 and nine, love drinking things through a straw because it means I can blow bubbles (surreptitiously now), and right at this second I am wearing a shirt with the Death Star on it. The last thing I bought was a book about a zombie apocalypse. Who let me out? And when does this whole “adult” thing kick in?
Also, where am I going to find an affordable place because seriously I’ve tried the 3 cities immediately surrounding my hospital and everything is 1200$+.
Gradded this afternoon
Bad decisions time this evening
Sometimes I love this job. I love it. I really do. But yesterday, I spent my shift on the other half of the medical unit - literally on a different floor - and ye gods, the nurses make all the difference. For the most part, they’re ok, but there’s one or two up there who will literally grab you and quietly bitch about a certain patient/event, and it’s hella awkward and I don’t want to become one of those people. It’s fine to bitch when you know you won’t be heard, or like in the middle of the night or something, but taking me aside in a relatively busy hall with patients wheeling by and various family members/visitors? NO! Save your comments for later! Yikes!
Also we had this confused guy who just wheels around the unit and he decided to stay at the sattelite nursing station and just generally get in the way. At one point he was watching me pour meds and said, “you do such a good job” and PATTED MY ASS so I said “thank you, please don’t touch me” and had to explain that the angle difference of someone in a wheelchair versus someone who was standing meant that he just harrassed me.
I know we’re kind of just supposed to deal with that, but NO WAY IN HELL am I letting some (not really creepy, but definitely old) patient touch me inappropriately without calling them out. He kept on trying to basically get behind the desk and get right up in my space because he wanted to see what I was doing, so I had to - gently - tell him off a few times. One of the nurses kept giving me a weird look and simply rolled the dude back because she was behind him and not at the station, but I was trying to teach the guy or something.
Being young and apparently pretty, and also white, gets me inappropriate touches or conversations involving “I’m so glad you’re becoming a nurse, it’s nice to have someone who is… from around here *wink* “. Bitch, please. My preceptor is Asian and I can count on one hand the number of times these past 6 weeks where there’s been a white nurse on duty when I was there. And everyone is “from around here.” And everyone is a great nurse. Relax. Stop making it awkward. Stop being racist and thinking that people who share your skin colour will automatically agree with you.
Besides, living where we live, you get great samosas. And basically food from anywhere in the world (except Africa for some reason?)
things I hope for:
that my friend will get out of her emotionally abusive relationship because this time it’s his idea to take a break
that I don’t have breast cancer
that I get a job after my interview on Friday
I am so tired and have to be awake and fully functioning so early and it feels like tiny evil elves took tiny evil pickaxes to my boob so I can’t sleep
every once in a while someone posts a picture of someone and I have no clue who that someone is and there’s no tags to mention who this person might be from even and it confuses me.
completely unrelated to anything else but
I hate Ant-Man and would rather have a movie about freaking Aquaman than him.
bah shit I have to leave in an hour and a half for a night shift which is fine because I love nights and I haven’t had to work at all the past 2 days but the kitchen’s a mess and I have assignments for school (which I don’t mind doing after midnight when the unit’s quiet, but I like doing my work lying horizontally with my laptop) and basically I’ve already been awake all day so I’ll be awake all night too except for my “break” which is actually a long nap with warmed blankets
also HOLY CRAP booked my phone interview for new grad hours! She gave me two options for times and one of them is right when my boob ultrasound starts so I went for the other one, obviously, but HOLY COW THIS IS A THING THAT IS HAPPENING
I’M GOING TO BE AN RN
text-flirting (textling?) with one of my friends and I’m stuck on how to make a dirty joke about looking a gift horse in the mouth, if the horse is actually just a human on all fours…
My preceptor’s adorable boy gave her some cold or flu or something, so I didn’t have a day shift today and I don’t have one tomorrow, which means all I have is 2 night shifts.
Which is great, but it means I can’t miss a single shift or risk having to continue my preceptorship after graduation
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
In other news, my odds of working at one of the top 3 hospitals in this province are awesomely high because of who I know. It’s pretty damn fantastic, even though I plan on taking a year or two to get my skills up in Medical instead of heading straight to NICU.
AND THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL IS 36 DAYS LEFT TIL MY PINNING CEREMONY AND I HAVE THE DRESS AND THE SHOES AND WHEEEE
YAY my preceptor just texted me (10 minutes before I’d scheduled to go to bed, mind you) and said she’s too sick, so we’re not going in tomorrow!
I mean, being sick sucks, but I CAN SLEEP! I can sleep I can sleep I can sleep! I had about 6 hours last night, but only 3 a night for the previous 3 nights, so I CAN SLEEP!
