Does being ‘busy’ ever end?

Does being ‘busy’ ever end?

I have felt this way for the last few months, and every time I do – I feel bad. Not only am I not the busiest person around, but I don’t have kids or other people I am responsible for and need my time and attention…so really, in the grand scheme of things, I’m not busy. I think ‘overwhelmed’┬áis a better way to describe how I’ve really been feeling since September, which was when I last posted on this blog.

Without going into the details, since my last post, I have…. gone through most of a uni semester feeling like I was barely treading water, sold a house (in only one day thankfully), moved house during the uni semester, started a new casual job (not nursing related), completed uni exams….and as of yesterday have just started my first (ever) clinical placement.

A post specifically about clinical placement in the near future, but as a ‘teaser’…clinical placement is a real eye-opener if you have never worked in a hospital environment before. If you’re a student nurse, I probably don’t need to tell you that it will be challenging and nerve-wracking also, but I think if you’re nervous then it means you care about doing a great job on your placement.

That’s it for today…time for me to get ready for day two, out of ten days of placement.
