I’m so frustrated right now. I work so hard at my job; my patients love me; they feel like I’m a hard working respectable young man (I know this because I overhear them). At the same time, management doesn’t seem to feel like I’m doing enough. I was presented with a bs write-up today with the details of some incident that didn’t even involve me. Now, in the back...
Ratched RN: I am a douche. →
rnratched: I am going to come out and say this deep thought I just had. I am not perfect. I am far from it. This day a year ago I was fresh off of orientation as a new nurse. Looking back, I knew NOTHING. The amount of stuff I learned in a year BLOWS MY MIND. You know what happened in that year? I got good… This

Not the wurst decision
So I’m sitting at Max and Erma’s with my beautiful girlfriend, Erin- goodhumorgirl.tumblr.com, and I’m eating this bratwurst burger with sauerkraut and Dijon mustard and drinking Guinness. I’m not regretting the sandwich yet, but right now, I am really happy :) Guten tag mein freund!
I love it when my friends post pictures of food they made. It makes me want to raid their kitchens :)
That awkward moment when...
Family members of a patient start playing guitar and singing… in the waiting room… Poorly.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else...– Ambrose Redmoon
What a complex arrangement it is to be responsible for the life, responsibility, and integration of another human being. To be a job so deeply sought after is perplexing to me. I think that too many people don’t really know what all goes in to parenting. They expect to have sweet compliant children, I suppose, that share the same wants and interests (a mini-me). What about when that kid...
DIY stress ball
Nurses, ever need a stress ball for a pt an can never track one down? Hospitals really should carry stress balls, but they infamously do not. Kerlix + Coban = awesomeness You’re welcome.
Long Time No Read, eh?
So, I imagine the majority of you haven’t heard from me in a while. I’ll update you on what’s been going on in my life. New job is going fantastic! It’s going so well in fact, that I plan on getting my nurse practitioner license starting in the fall. I need to do more research before I’m enrolled and all that jazz, but I think that’s the step that I need to...
Some stuff really quick
Paused from getting stuff done to update. It’s been a while, but that’s bound to happen when you switch jobs. Things on a personal level are sorting themselves out nicely. I now work at a small community hospital in a small town, and I wonder why I was ever prejudiced against a smaller hospital. Honestly, my hospital can do 95% of what a big hospital can do, except faster and with...
My patient's family member called to tell me her...
What’s your take on this whole “friend zone” predicament that everyone is all up in arms about? Anonymous I won’t speak to the female perspective, as I don’t have one. And there are plenty of opinions on the matter already, but I can tell you as a man that I think it’s bullshit. Where ulterior motives exist, friendship does not. If you have a problem with being someone’s...
My Hospital Hates Me
It’s not just me, really; it’s all of its employees. The prices in our cafeteria are outrageous. Parking is ridiculous. We get clocked out for breaks whether we take them or not. Benefits are very expensive (especially considering we work at a hospital). I’m pretty well over this place, and I’m ready to start at the other hospital. I just went downstairs and got...

One of the few things I like about night shifts
Ninja bed weights.
Well, I’ve been up to things lately. I’ve been working midnights for going on 6 months now, and it’s caught up with me in a major way. I’m sick and tired all the time and don’t feel right. I was willing to put up with it for a bit longer when my boss said she’d give me a day shift in January, but then she took that away saying she didn’t think I was...
You're a nurse?? That's cool. What do you make?"...
I’m thinking about taking a month-long break from tublr minimum. Lot’s to do this month.

remmyvsthelions asked: I laughed so hard at your comment, thanks for putting up with me despite my choices in sports teams!
Quick tax rant
The government is taking nearly $500 out of every paycheck. Do you even know what I could do with an extra $500 every two weeks? Let’s start off with not being in debt. From there, we’ll continue on to not stressing about whether I have enough money after I pay my bills to eat, let alone go somewhere fun or actually enjoy life. After that, we’ll also talk about buying...
Really, nobody's saying this yet?
Republicans, you are so stupid for not picking Ron Paul to represent your party. Now that your idiot front man’s real intentions have been made public (to those who can’t read between the lines and see a man’s real character), your chances at winning this next election have all but evaporated. Ron Paul was a good strong candidate with the country’s best interests at...
So, I created this blog for stuff the boys like. →
I started to post a blog from my phone about the recent changes in my friendships. I was spilling out some hooplah about how some of my older relationships are really diminishing, and I seem to be letting them and even adding distance from some of those people. Though I’m not without my own shortcomings as a friend, I believe that I am a very good friend as I’ve put myself out there...
