Looking cool is clearly at the top of my priority list. In fact, new New Years Resolution: exude coolness. Wait, is making being cool a goal inherently uncool? How about using the word inherently? Maybe I'll just be me and see where that gets me. Anyway, now you're all bit-chomping to know my foolproof tips for looking cool.
1. Walk to the corner store next to your building. Purchase only one can of diet pop* and a pack of hostess cupcakes. Done.
2. Wear wide-legged (pronounced "leg-ed") dress pants tucked into the tops of one's Sorels for extra coolness. It's Hammer Time!
Bonus: Today was a good and slow intro to placement. It will definitely pick up tomorrow. My clinical educator is very supportive and I think this will be a good partnership. She kindly offered to lend me a lanyard for my keys and badge. I'm not sure rhinestone Jesus fish are really my style. Perhaps we are different in a few ways....
*I love having stars at the end of my posts. I love pop. I drink the diet version even though I believe aspartame is bad and I know it makes me feel poopy (ie unwell not with excessive fecal matter). But I've realized in the last few weeks that I don't love pop as much as I used to. Perhaps this will be the beginning of me phasing it out gradually.
