After a LOOOOOOOONG and relaxing vacation, I have finally started my very first job as a nurse! The first day was BORING though... it will be several weeks before I even get to the floor I'll be working on. Today I sat through hours of being talked at about health insurance, life insurance, disability, retirement saving plans... I wonder if I'll have a paycheck left at the end of the month after all the "benefits" are subtracted. hmmmm.... I am lucky to have a job though.
The transition from student back to worker bee is strange. It's weird to come home and not have a text book or test looming over me. It's time to try to remember what that concept of "free time" is all about and what one does with such a luxury!
