Today, I woke up late. I didn’t have my homework for clinical done and then couldn’t get ahold of anyone to pick me up, so I walked to school and arrived before clinical started but much later than I like to. Then, my patient pooped all over the place even though he was on a commode. Then, my other patient needed an enema and that process — convincing, doing, cleaning — took about 2 hours, and I then had to change my scrubs after that mess. Then, they didn’t have fries in the lunch line and only had crappy food to eat so I settled. Then, I never heard from the boy. Then, I thought I lost my keys and couldn’t get anyone to take me back to the hospital to look for them. Then, I ordered a lot of food, got called fat by the delivery guy, and procrastinated in front of Hulu for four hours and did no homework, again. Then, I never heard from the boy (still). Then, I cleaned the kitty litter. Then, I did laundry and cleaned my kitchen. Then, my school BFF called and was sad…
…and I couldn’t commiserate.
See, I’ve been in a good mood. I’ve been a good mood for weeks.
And, then, I realized that the pendulum swung and I’m … happy. I’m surrounded by people I love, and who may actually love me; by people I trust, and who may actually trust me. And I just had to tell you. Everything is fabulous. Everything is glorious. Everything is beautiful.
Oh, and never trust a drag queen when she tells you she’s retiring. 🙂 We all know better.
