A Superstitious Midwife

I tend to deny the fact that I am superstitious. But I am. And that's the honest truth. For example; whenever people ask me "Hey, how's the new job? Do you like it?" I act all cool about it, and say "Yeah, it's cool." In reality I feel like saying; It's great! It's a change that I am glad I made! I enjoy my office mate oh so much, she's the best! Now, that wasn't that hard. I guess I feel like if I said those words, that I would jinx it. No more of that. Okay, I'll try. If I am happy, I will say it, damn it!

Being there I have realized a few things. I mentioned it on Twitter today, how there's a nurse that tends to treat older hispanic patients terribly! I understand people have bad days, but it's happened a couple of times now, and I have only been there for 1 month. When it happened I was so hurt for that old man. I honestly see my parents whenever I see older people. So, I treat them as I would want my parents to be treated, with respect. There's still a lot of racism out there, and it's sad. But, I remind myself that not everyone is like that :)

That brings me to my next point. I have decided to change my major---officially! I have mentioned before that I wasn't sure if Psychology was what I wanted to pursue. I mean, I know that I want to help people, but how? I considered education, but wasn't too excited about it. Lord knows how much I have prayed about this. The other night after tossing and turning and finally being able to fall asleep, I saw the words "Midwife", and I woke up with a huge smile, and a racing heart. I knew that's what I wanted to be, and it's funny, how it was always in front of my face. I love pregnancy, and helping women, educating them on the subject, and always said that if I did pursue nursing, I'd want to work for a OBGYN. So there ya go. I can't wait until the Fall!

Watch SNL tonight! Briana's booski (and my ex, lol) will be hosting ;) I hope you're all well. Pictures on my next post!

30 Days Song Challenge/ Day 06: A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere

I am changing my major as well. I am still debating.
That lady needs an attitude adjustment but you are right not everyone is like that :)

It's unfortunate there are still people in the world like that and I feel sorry for those she treat wrong. That's exciting that you want to be a midwife. I have two kids and even though I did't have a midwife I know the importance of them and it's great to have that additional support through it all. I have my bachelor's degree in psychology but any helping profession is a great field to be in so good luck to you!

If someone is mistreating patients of a certain race, you need to report them immediately. After all, you noticed. Do you want their well-being on your conscious?

My grandmother's in a nursing home & I'd be just as pissed off at the people who witnessed her mistreatment and didn't say anything as I'd be at the person who actually did it.

Racism is horrible and it's sad that you have to see that kind of behaviour....

As far as being a midwife that wold be amazing. I have yet to have kids but if I were to have them I would loveee to have a natural birth with a midwife. Girl You never know you may end up delivering my babies. Imagine that it would be so cool!

Yay on becoming a midwife! it must be so exciting. i wish i could change my major but i feel like its too late. congratulations on finding something you love to do, and I know everybody isn't the same and that you just started there but voicing your opinion wouldn't hurt, at least not to me. being unfair to other people is a BIG pet peeve of mines. are you friends with that lady?

A Midwife sounds interesting! I'm pursing a Bachelors in Psychology. I'm working on being a Chemical Dependency Counselor. You should probably report that lady that you see mistreating those patients, I'm sure theirs an annoymous number that you should be able to dial. Any who, good luck on your career as a midwife. I hope it rewards you in everyway possible.

Thanks for the comments ladies! And for taking time to read my entry. I will find out on the low where I can call anonymously and report that issue. I just cant go to my supervisor because shes the type to say "bob told me john hates susan." Shes doesnt have a confidential way about things. Thanks for the advice and keeping it real!
