There are a few times in your life where you have a little too much time on your hands.
So I had found myself in a gap between the hecticness and stress of university life and the new stresses to be found in my new job. And the gap is going to last for another 4 weeks!
I’m not used to sitting around and doing nothing. I’m trying to get all my time taken up by reading, gaming and exercising but I’m still left with so much spare time! There is only so much gaming one person can do before they go mad! Joe (the fiance) is quite happy to stay home and get lost in the gaming world, but I want to get up and do something! Even if it’s just going for a walk along the Thames – that’s about as romantic as we’ve got.
The worst thing is.. I know that in a few weeks I’ll want this time back, especially once I have the stress of being a full time, fully fledged nurse over my head, but that doesn’t make this time any less painful!
So, I ask you, readers, fellow transitioners, WHAT DO I DO TO STAY SANE?
Just a brief introduction to this little blog of mine.
So, in the next few months, I’ll be making the transition from student nurse to qualified nurse. Am I scared? Yes. I’m petrified! Being accountable with noone but myself watching my back scares me. But, am I excited? Even more so.
Why? Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for nearly three years, and now it’s here, and I’ve got a job waiting I’m ready to start this new chapter of my life. I’m ready to get out there and make a difference, without having to rely on other people.
I’m using this space to help document my transition from student to qualified nurse, talking about the experiences and the feelings that come with them. I hope you guys can join me in my journey to this new part of my life! If any of you have any questions or are going through the same thing, get in touch!
