Everyday struggles…again

4:30AM
I’m nice and comfy in my warm bed, then the alarm goes off. Talk about a rude wake-up call. My cocoon of blankets and pillows is so warm. Do I really need to come out of it? I was having such a great dream about a movie I fell asleep watching. In my dream, I was in the movie but as a new character. Now I know I shouldn’t have stayed up so late watching movies.

Every morning when the alarm goes off, I go through all the fucking cuss words in my head that I could ever think of!
But thanks Heavens, it’s Friday.
We’ve all been there.

I know some of you might think that, “why you complaining, you choose to do that, no one is forcing you”. But trust me, I know that I choose to do this…and I do love what I do, most of the time.
However, I have to admit that sometimes I get tired. Really, really tired and sometimes, all I am thinking is “how many days till the weekend?”

I am currently doing my internship. It’s a 16-weeks internship which will be ending in late November. My internship deals with study in the areas of Biochemistry, Serology, Hematology, Immunohematology, Microbiology, Phlebotomy and Reception. Each area of study includes practical laboratory experiences, lectures and/or workshops, self instruction learning modules, patient case studies, and tests. We receive instructions as we learn and work with teaching technologists in the laboratory.
Under supervision, we perform laboratory analyses in all tests on patients’ samples (blood, sputum, urine, stool, body fluid specimens), interpret and report results.
General hours for the internship are 8AM – 5PM, Monday through Friday.

No matter how much I love an enjoy this, there are ALWAYS times when I get tired of it. Times when it gets boring. Times when I feel like staying in bed, all day. When those times come, I go through them, even when it’s struggling.
Like today. I’m laying here in bed, writing a blog post instead of getting up and get ready for work!

5:45AM
So glad I got out of bed.
Hello day, I’m ready for you!
