Back to the School of Nursing

Back to college today after many, well deserved, weeks off. We're in class for the next fortnight, after which, we go on placement. I'll be going back to the psychiatric hospital on yet another of the acute wards. This particular ward has something of a difficult reputation around the hospital for not being an easy place to work, due to staff friction. However, I've talked to many other student nurses who've already done a placement there, and they've all enjoyed it. So who knows?

I'm glad to be doing another acute ward so soon after the last one. I've got a great deal of experience in acute, and it's what I intend to do once I qualify.

Today I've been somewhat irked and generally disgruntled. I recently began to see another student on the course, referred to here as Mrs A, who I'd struck up a strong friendship with. However, I just can't seem to get this woman to take me seriously. I know she's got a lot of other issues in her life, and maybe I am trying to push things along too quickly, but I can't help but feel upset that things haven't developed further. I really need to clarify things between us, so there is no doubt in my mind what she wants. I need to move on beyond this as quickly as possibly.

Now that I'm back in college, it inevitably means that I can't spend as much time on the cartooning work as I would like. I'm stuck three pages (or so) from the end of the current strip, and I'm unlikely now to be able to finish it before the weekend.

There's been much frustration for me today. Not only that, but I've got a headache.
