My patient today was so sweet. She spoke a little English, was from Hong Kong, and told me repeatedly I was "so beautiful". I was like hey, that's nice, we'll keep you. She also kept telling me I was very smart and very kind. I wish we had more patients like that! It was a busy, busy day and I was very glad because that meant that the time flew by.
I ran into another extern on the way to my car. We chit chatted about how much we've learned and where we'll work when we finish. That was good for me, to touch base with someone else in my shoes.
I've applied to several jobs at this hospital, hopefully I will hear from them before I leave for overseas. If not, well, I will find something to pay the bills when I get back.
