High and Low Points of the last 1 1/2 week

High: Wednesday night:
Campfire and s'mores with good friends and guitars. Come, summer, come.

Low: Sunday, all day
Feeling like a completely incompetent nurse. Orientation is a humbling experience. When I took the animal personality test with the entire Dept. of Nursing a few months ago, I was a strong owl. Owls like to be competent, efficient, visionary, and tend to be leaders and big idea people. Now I feel so incompetent it just eats away at me and any confidence I might have possessed before. And I'm having to be more beaver-ish (i.e. detail and list oriented) than I naturally am. I'm ready to just know what I'm doing without going through all this.

Ah owl to beaver. Not necessarily a negative transition. Know that you have friends to vent with and sometimes that’s all one needs.

I hear you on the whole competence thing. It's hard to be on orientation again.
