A Pit, A Peak, & A Little #BackThatAzzUp



+ Within the last 3 weeks, I've had 3 different job interviews at 3 different hospitals for 3 different RN positions. And I didn't get any of them. That brings my job applications I've sent in up to, oh, at least 100-200. At least. And my interview count up to 6. And my job offers up to....ZERO.

+ It's still winter in Minnesota. And snowing. And blowing. And ANNOYING!

+ I've been having major writer's block lately (if you couldn't tell by my lack of posts). Luckily, I have one post really dear to my heart scheduled for next Tuesday. And I'm working on another fun little post idea that probably will officially put me on the crazy train. But that's okay.

+ I will be in a CPR class from 8:30am-3:00pm tomorrow. Save me by tweeting me or something tomorrow, y'all!


+ It's Friday and my brother and sister are both coming home this weekend!

+ I went 1990's pop and country music crazy yesterday and downloaded a bunch of new-old songs.

+ I have another interview lined up for February 12th. My 3rd interview with this hospital/clinic system.

+ This is random, but this Pit & Peak thing reminded me of what my clinical instructor during my first semester of hospital clinicals in Rochester used to do. In post-clinical, we would share a "Pit & a Pearl" of our day. It was so therapeutic, helpful, and reassuring.

And because I love you all, here's a great 90's song to jam on this Finally Friday!

  1. Not to be a major downer or anything, but have you considered moving?? Some areas right now are just not experiencing the "nursing shortage" that everyone talks about. The other thing is, do some places offer internship-like positions? It is frustrating, I know. I was lucky when I graduated nursing school because the economy hadn't tanked yet. Now, I have experience so it's always easier once you have experience. Good luck and something will come your way eventually!

  2. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the next job interview pans out! Maybe 4th times a charm for you! Thanks for linking up with us!

  3. i really enjoyed this post! and I definitely hope that things work out for you soon in the job market :) and have a great weekend with your siblings!


  4. I love new old songs! :) Thanks so much for linking up with us!

  5. Best of luck on your next interview!

  6. OH I'm loving this linkup. Might have to do it. I know a lot of people who do the peaks and pits just in daily life.
    Good luck on your interview!
