    Well I'm sure this list will change once I get a job in the field but here we go: weaving, anime conventions, Renaissance Faires, Soceity for Creative Anachronism ( SCA), middle eastren dancing, and learning. Ya I think that's the bulk of it. I'm currently a preschool teacher. I just took my NREMT exam and passed it! Just waiting to get my paperwork in so I can do job hunting.

  1. My sociology teacher made me blush! I didn't know that was possible!

  2. I'm in chat. Who wants to cause chaos with me?

  3. Ok a bit of an update. ( I honestly didn't think anyone really read my blog hehe) What is going on is my insurance sucks. Now I don't mean like a $3 hooker sucks, oh no.. try a free one! lol. I have a $2000 durable machine deductible and no matter how much a machine costs they want to say it's $1000. Ok so that covers the "lost" $400. I decided that using my insurance is pointless ( we are really good with saving and we can pay that ammount in cash) and suddenly the company becomes as useful as a blow up sex doll.... actually less so. As least with the doll you get some enjoyment from it. Anyway I rant. I go back to my doctor who replies to all of this with a, "Why are they being such useless sons of a #%$%?" He then gives me the phone number for the company he personally deals with for his own Cpap. Ok now why couldn't he done that before? You know like sooner when I called up to tell him I was having problems? :: sigh:: Doctors don't you love them? So I call the new company and wow it's amazing! My out of pocket cost will be $675 and I have a respitory therapist that I get to meet on Saturday. It's shocking! They are doing what the other company was to be doing! Anyway there's the update on the CPap stuff. I go back and read what I just typed and realize: I really need to stop reading Patrick Rothfuss's blog. lmao. Though this isn't as scarcastic as his is but isn't that far away. lmao
  4. I PASSED MY CNA EXAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Well off to my first day at HCC. :: hugs to my friends::

      Congrats on the HCC. Hope your first day was good =)

      Congrats at getting into the hospital! Hope your day was a good one!

  6. Well I start college tomorrow..... I can't believe it.

  7. Thanks but no thanks hun. :: hugs:: I plan to keep on trying. I applied for 2 more jobs today and I plan on continuing to bug them until I get somewhere!
  8. Currently trying not to cry... I went in feeling great. Interview went awesome. Spoke with both HR and the manager for the radiology department. The Manager even said she had seen my file and asked for it to be pulled and have me called in. Remembered my name and whole nine yards. They even gave me the orientation packet and uniform requirements. I get home make calls to family and my phone goes off. It's HR. So I'm thinking, "WOOT!". Ya... someone from another hospital just called and wanted to transfer locations... He has the job. :: sighs and cries:: They asked if I wanted my file to be kept for a future opening I told them yes. The woman from HR said I was well liked and would have gotten it but the other guy has the experiance which gave him the edge... oh well. Off to curl up with some ice cream and hubby.
  9. :: Puts on teacher hat:: Stranger danger and Safe Stranger are too great ones. It's great if they know not to talk to to a stranger but they need to do who they can talk to. Police, fire, ambo people etc. How to dail 911 and what info they will be asked. What is a fire danger? How to get out in a fire. These are all things all those ages can handle. Do mini senarios. Have a child be "hurt" and take care of them so they can see what to expect. Now don't go doing a trauma alert on the younger ones that might be alittle much pending how you do it. I'm a huge one for explaining what a vital sign is and what it tells me. Think meat and potatos hold the salt and butter. Take away the fear of, "Why are you doing this and what is that". You might be shocked at how much they can understand. ( No joke I have a 3 year old that knows if he's coughing alot and he can't breath to ask for his dino mask.... which is his nebulizer. ) With the older kids see if anyone has any conditions you can use. Even if you dont' use them directly. If Billy Bob is allergic to oh bees ( a common thing in Florida) then make a character that is and what you would do to help him if you got called to him after being stung. Water safety water safety water safety. This seriously can not be mentioned enough. It's summer time these guys are going to pool parties. Going over how to be safe in the water and what do to if someone is drowning would be very good ideas. Ask parents to take part. Make it an assignment to come up with a fire plan and emergency numbers. I"m sure if I sat down and really thought about it I could come up with more if not give you a flipping lesson plan. Ok that's my current 2 cents. Off to cook dinner.
  10. OH I forgot the green candle! I have my God/dess and universe ones lit I forgot green. wow it's been too long. Herbie: OH ya I plan on being open for anything. This job is for transporter so running people around the radialogy wing I think... Not even sure right now. I don't honestly care where it's at. No matter where I get to go I'll be learning.
  11. Ok so now that I am ALOT calmer and can type without bouncing in my seat. One of the jobs I had applied for months ago was for transporter. Now for those that haven't talked to me in the chat room this hospital is the hospital in Tampa. It runs almost all the medical buildings in the bay area. So ya it's made it very hard for me to get a job. I had kindof lost hope. From what I've been told they get about 800 applications per job. Most don't get looked at and they get to be as picky as they want. If you don't have everything they are looking for then don't hold your breath. The fact they actually called me yesterday just about sent me into shock. It's not the greatest shift in the world which might be why I'm one of the lucky ones to get a call back . It's 3 days a week including 16hour shifts on Saturday and Sundays. (Monster Java Irish Creams might become my best friend again.) It will also work beautifully with my school schedule for the prerecs I enrolled in for nursing. So OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. :: dances around the room::
  12. OMG OMG OMG Got a call back from St. Joesph hospital here in Tampa! So prayers, good thoughts, riturals, any combo there of lol. OMG OMG OMG
  13. So last night I had my second sleep study. Now I'm asking for help because I just don't know enough on this topic. Let me go ahead and spell some things out: I'm a 24 year old 200pound female. Most of that weight is in my legs. I'm athletic. I ride 6 miles everyday on bicycle, run around with my kids, run up and down the stairs at work on break because I like to, etc. I don't just sit around and eat. In fact I even pack my lunch so I don't go out to the closest fast food place. I'm not going to claim I'm an olimpian I'm far from that. Just saying I'm not a lazy slob. Well got some results from the first sleep study I did.... Ya it was bad, In fact it was scary. It was a WTF?!? I had 30 episodes of sleep apnea an hour. Most of which were obstructive. Ok so ya it suddenly hit me that this, "unneeded cpap test" might be needed alittle more. When the place told me I had to go in again they made it sound like they were being over causous and I barely had any. I almost didn't go in again. Glad I went with the, "My insurance covers it 100% so might as well" style of thinking. Anyway I digress. My tech then tries to say that for some reason he doesn't know the computer is saying I owe a $1000 but not for taking the test. :: draw huge question mark over head now:: We're guessing it's why the corperate office tried to call me a second time on Friday but by the time I could call back they were gone and closed for the weekend. We're also guessing it would be to buy the mechine. That makes sinse right? Well because we're budget freaks we didn't pay up and I'm going to be bugging the corperate office on Monday. Well I get home today and being the research person I am I'm trying to find out more about OSA and Cpap machines. (Any help in this would actually be nice. So I make sure I'm understanding what I'm reading. Like I said I'm a research person.) I even find the exact one I was hooked up to last night and the exact mask. The total with shipping: $608... Ok so we have almost $400 unaccountible dollars between those too prices... Um am I missing something? Ok the rambling gypsy is done.
