Despite my best efforts

I start my pediatric rotation today in a hospital about an hour away. I thought I was signing up for two weeks in this hospital, but was assigned for six. I thought I'd be staying in a call room, but was assigned a dorm room...with a roommate.

When I woke up this morning, I stepped in cat shit. An hour later, I was notified that I need to take my immunization records with me this afternoon. When I drove across town to get said records, I found out that my TB testing is not up to date. ("Oh, sorry about that. I guess we put the wrong date in the computer.")

The whole morning has been one big clusterfuck. But, it's 58 degrees and sunny. This would suck if I was a polar bear; but since I'm not, I find it absolutely impossible to be in a crappy mood today.

I tried, I just can't do it.

i feel that way, i woke up 30 minutes before my first class of the semester, didn't bring paper but miraculously had a pen. The weather is warm in the 70's with a breeze and sunny.

Hee Hee - about the catshit. How on earth did that happen? Haven't you got a litter tray?
Six weeks in a dorm room sounds difficult - you'll be spending your birthday with a new room mate.
Paediatrics sounds wonderful - you'll be able to pick up some tips for Kelsy and Logyn!
