Working This Summer

I received a call from my supervisor asking if I would be interested in taking a nursing position at an enrichment center in Brooklyn. My first instinct was to just say, “No” and I did just that. But then I shut my mouth and got quiet and let my supervisor speak. I hate when my mouth is quicker than my brain. Turns out the location in Brooklyn is right over the bridge. Perfect. So I quickly backtracked and accepted the job. I didn’t think I had a chance to work for the DOE this summer. Nurses were being chosen based on seniority and I don’t have a lot of time in. Instead I had contacted an agency I worked for before I was hired by the DOE. I was hoping they had work for me that would last for the summer. I had just sent over my updated resume to the agency when my supervisor called. Talk about timing! I quickly wrote the agency people an email rescinding my availability and left off on good terms.

I start work in Brooklyn July 1st. The 4th of July falls on a Saturday this year so we have July 3rd off to make up for the holiday. I’m not complaining. I also begin my second semester of school on July 1st. It should be an interesting time. My first class is “Care of the elderly patient.” I’m not particularly interested in care of the elderly to be honest. But I guess I should get myself interested by the time July 1st rolls around.

I’m hoping for a great semester of course. Last semester went relatively fast and I had great support from the course instructors. Hopefully this semester will be similar.
