It makes such a big difference, believe it or not, when someone sincerely asks ‘how are you?’

4:37pm

I’m so blessed to be at this clinical site. I love being here, the people are so friendly and the patients are all so wonderful (including the violent, grumpy, hardheaded ones). My other classmates would constantly text me before their shift and say they dread going inside and are not looking forward to the 12 hour shift, but I can honestly say I very much enjoy coming to work and it honestly does not even feel like 12 hours!

I couldn’t of had picked a better profession than Respiratory Therapy. I genuinely and sincerely love my job.

3:38pm

It’s Saturday afternoon and I have done nothing but catch up on my shows. The week went by so fast and crazy how so much has happened.

I am so blessed to do what I am most passionate about. I can sincerely say that I love every single thing that happens during my 12 hour shifts at the hospital. I love patient care and it’s the main reason I wanted to be in the medical field.

Yesterday was a very busy day at the hospital. After I finished my rounds, I came across a patient yelling for help as I came out of my patients room across from his and I walked in his room to see how I can help him. This patient is notorious for being mean, rude, and heartless. I was a bit intimidated walking in at first but I went in his room anyway. When I put on my gloves and tried assessing the problem, he looked at me and asked me if I could help move his arms because he was in severe pain. At first I didn’t do it the way he wanted me to because he likes things done in a specific way and he raised his voice at me but very quickly calmed down and told me what to do in a less demanding way. I ended up helping him and making him feel more comfortable and be in less pain. He started talking to me and ask questions like, “so do you like your job” and “I always see you go in the other room, are you always helping her?” And that’s when I realized, he is not as scary as everyone made it seem and actually just wanted to talk to someone. His hands were in pain so he asked me to hold his hands and stay with him until the nurse gives him his pain shot, which I told him I could not do because that’s not for another 2 hours but I would stay for as long as I can before I had to check on my patients. He apologized for wasting my time but I told him he wasn’t because of all my patients, he was the only one not obtunded and was also the youngest (22 years old) so I actually enjoyed talking to him.
When I told him I had to go, he asked me if I can stay with him a little longer once I get off my shift and I said sure I’ll stop by and visit before I leave, and which I did and I stayed for about half an hour and he was expressing his gratitude the whole time and explained how he’s misunderstood and not as mean, scary, and heartless as everyone else make him seem like. Since it was Friday, he was a bit bummed out when I told him my next shift isn’t until Wednesday.. But I told him not to worry because whenever I have free time, I will make sure to check up on him and make sure he’s okay— even if he wasn’t my patient.

So yeah, that’s one of the reasons why I love my job.

I’m officially on break! It’s been a long stressful last two weeks and I am so glad it’s over. Now I get to enjoy my “long weekend” before the new term starts on Monday. 

I’m so blessed that my prayers were answered. God is so good to me and I honestly have the best support system! My family, friends, and even my English teacher from last term constantly reminded me how they had faith in me and how they knew I was going to pass. And sure enough, I passed my practicum, final, and got an A on my paper! 

I can now relax and breathe. lol

6am

I’m up early today because I’m worried for my final exam tomorrow. I just want to fast forward to Tuesday night already so the anticipation of knowing whether or not I passed my exam will be answered already.

This term was seriously the longest and I’m so close to the end of it but I just gotta get through one more freakin test.

:( St. Joseph of Cupertino pleaase help me tomorrow.

2:45am

It’s the weekend, meaning I survived my practicum on Friday! That day was beyond stressful and I was so nervous. I knew what I was doing but having my program director, clinical director, and clinical supervisor watch my every move as I assess and treat my patient made me feel incompetent and super nervous. But I passed it, praise God! 

Now I just have to get through my presentation on Monday and finals on Tuesday. I hope I get out of this term and move on to the next because the schedule for next term sounds amazing. I’ll only have lecture on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9am-12pm and my 12 hour shift in clinicals Wednesday - Fridays. I pray that I’ll be able to retain all the information I’ll be studying this weekend and pass the exam. 

So today, or yesterday.. well Saturday lol I went to Los Angeles for my aunt’s birthday and it was a nice little family reunion because I got to catch up with my cousin and see all the relatives. 

My cousin and I had a long talk about basically everything in life and I’m so glad she was there because she has helped clear my mind and reminded me how life is so good. If only she lived closer I swear my life would be a whole lot different because she would be influencing me to make better choices in life. She’s literally my spiritual guidance, health coach, and mentor when it comes to studying. 

It’s almost 3 am so I think I should sleep now because tomorrow I’m going to be spending the whole day with more family members from Vegas! 

I wish the events that took place and will take place this weekend happened next weekend because I’m supposed to be studying but at the same time I needed a break.. but then again it’s too soon to take a break because I have not accomplished everything I needed to do because my final is still on Tuesday.. BUT THEN AGAIN I NEED TO JUST CHILL AND ENJOY LIFE AGAIN. 

Okay. Good night world.

11:42am

I like how you have the audacity to not do me a small favor after all the times I busted my ass for you just to help you out.

Best believe I’m forevzzzz done with you.

Corey likes to drive as if he’s in Tokyo Drift just so he can annoy me. Even though he does it every single time I’m in the passengers seat and complain the whole time, he still does not mind driving me to places lol well maybe because he enjoys annoying me and tunes me out every time I nag at him to drive safer. 

Our first picture together would be in our blue scrubs..

Corey picked me up right after my class and we had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. I love how he’s always on time whenever we make plans. I told him I might get out of class at 4:30 but I wasn’t sure because my professor likes to prolong lectures at times and usually hold us in until 5:30 but he was already at school at 4:30. Lol good thing I got out early today though! 

We ordered so many wings… The picture just shows how overwhelmed he looks with all the food. 

He finished most of them anyway.

So in addition to my last post, my classmates are a bunch of trolls and every single day like to troll me.

Taylor even said, “sometimes I don’t want to go to class but then I remember that Jess will be there and that’s when I realize it’ll be a good day… Because it’s so fun messing with her.” Lol literally like an older brother who annoys me every single day.

So yesterday, while we were all in a study room before our after noon class, Miles came in and they all know that I have the biggest crush on him, so while I was just sitting there studying and minding my own business, they decided to put me on blast. They were saying things along the line of: 

"Miles..Why didn’t you ever date Jess?"
“Jess loves you, Miles”
“If you date her, you will be the luckiest man alive.”
“She’s the most caring person I have ever met so I don’t know why you’re not dating her yet.”
“You’ll be set for life if you date her.”
“She makes the best sandwiches”

Even though they said some pretty sweet things about me, I was still pretty embarrassed lol 

So after class, Miles decided to text me and ask me if it’s really true. 

I replied and we had a long conversation about life afterwards. Lol

I guess I can thank my classmates.
