I could have re-hashed some photos of my wedding, as I only got married seven months ago. But I've already used those as part of a previous gallery entry.
Four years ago, I was celebrating a different kind of milestone. I graduated from College with a BSc in Nursing. It was a great achievement for me, as I left school after 5th year and got a job, instead of going to University with the rest of my school friends. I had worked in two Doctor's surgeries after school and during holidays, so became permanent there, working in 8am-12.30pm in one, and 1pm-6pm in the other. It shaped my people skills, but I felt useless, trapped behind a desk.
When I was 20 I decided it was time to realise my dream of going into nursing, and enrolled in night school every Wednesday after work to gain my Higher in Human Biology. I had always toyed with the idea, but wasn't quite mature enough, or ready enough to commit to three years of studying! I was accepted into the Nursing Degree programme in 2003 and graduated in 2006. Can't believe it's been four years!!
I love my job. Nursing was the best decision I ever made. There's nothing more rewarding, and I am challenged every day. No two days are the same. I meet amazing people and their families, and there's nothing more satisfying than caring for those who are ill.
(Some of the photos are a bit blurry as they're photo's of photo's - I don't have a scanner.)
