A reassuring note to self

I have one week left on ward 6H before I rotate to Ward 2 at Shenton Park for 6 months.

I refuse to dwell on the negatives for these are going to occur whether I like it or not. I am calmly preparing myself for the stressful working environment, the lack of meal breaks, the lack of sleep, the paperwork and of course, the senior physio who is responsible for all of the above.

For my own sanity, I need to document a list of positives from this move. These are as follows:
- I am looking forward to the extra 45 minutes of sleep. My [supposed] working hours are 8.30-5.00pm.
- I am delighted at the prospect of free parking, saving me $6.70 per day
- I am grateful for Lake Monger on the way home - really need to start serious training for City to Surf
- I can't wait to get back into stroke rehab....hands on, long term patients, seeing them progress from wheelchair to walking
- I am excited about the close proximity to Delish, Floreat Forum, Cambridge Forum, Herdsman Fresh, The Wembley, Tasty Tarts, Subiaco and the beach
- I don't know why, but I'm semi-excited about the prospect of being on-call on rostered weekends (you can call me crazy)... i am sure this will wear off after the first time i'm called in at 3am or something equally ridiculous
- and of course coming back to the big house for Friday drinks at Milligan's :P

Friends who make me laugh, family, food and the thought of finally getting a bit of a break come September - wheee malaysia - are the main things that are keeping me going at the moment. A toast to all of you!

Yay for positives!
It's always good to think positive!
However I'm tad bit concerned for your free willingness to go on-call...DUDE!! WTF???? Seriously, after what I witnessed on Sat night with Kris bundling up her prawns just as they arrived at the table...oh or how can I forget that 6am morning call for a day shift when I regretable ventured out late into the night before, I don't wish on-call on anyone....hahahaha
