Why the hell didn't I do this sooner?

I updated my resume on Monster.

Within like a day or so, I have concluded 4 different interviews for jobs ranging from ED to ICU and OR. I even spotted an opening for a flight nurse out in Juneau, Alaska!

Left me scratching my head - why the hell didn't I do this any sooner? I was so dumb for sticking with my stressful, deadbeat job. For some stupid reason, I wasted months trying to change departments in my hospital - never occurred to me to look elsewhere!

I think I just overcame my resistance to moving again (I've been here just a year and half). Health and sanity won out over temporary comfort and aversion. Besides, I've been thinking about it - I need to go back to school and get my masters (or beyond!) I need to get cracking - or life's just gonna pass me by.

No time for losers, You make the call
Believe in yourself, Stand tall!
Another day, it's in your hands
You can be the winner, in the end.

Keep runnin' don't look back
Keep movin' paint it black
Keep goin' don't ever stop
There's time to rest the day you'll drop
-- Klaus Meine, Mark Hudson

Ciao! Of to watch the Sabres game I recorded on DVR (whilst I was busy making sure confused old ladies with new hips didn't injure themselves falling out of bed).

Try Juneau....I live here and it is amazing! Lots of snow, small hospital, but lots of action. Go for it!
