So, I figure that if I wait long enough, some interesting stuff may actually have happened, and I can have something substantial to write about! So here it is, update of a few months:
In October, now-hubby and I got married! YAY! :) It was an amazingly spectacular day; one of the best days of my life! :) Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated with us. The service was beautiful, and lots of fun; the photos were hilarious! loved them :) with lots of posing on the part of all involved; and the reception was one big party - great food, great music, and great company! All in all, a perfect day :) We were quite exhausted that night (=p), but somehow managed to roll ourselves out of bed moderately early the next day to say thanks to relatives etc. A bit of shopping ensued (for him
nonetheless!! Shock. Horror.), an early dinner (mmm... freshly made naan), and then on a flight to the honeymoon!! YAY! By the time we got to our destination (Fiji - seriously, everyone should go. SO beautiful, SO breathtaking), we were so exhausted that we slept for 24 hours (waking for meals, of course!). Then came the 10 days of pure relaxation... eating... relaxation... massage...eating... sunbath... eating... Too awesome for words :p And as all good LJers are expected to... photos! (for those with facebook - I have an account with *heaps* of photos up! :D)( Our fairytale wedding!!Collapse )
After the fantastic (read: relaxing) honeymoon, we returned to Melb, with hubby at work and myself on holidays for a bit longer (yes!). Then, I returned to work... in the Intensive Care Unit!! It. Was. H-Awesome. It's like I've found my home at work - so brilliant I can't even explain :) Every day was fun and interesting, and there were a million and one things to learn. And the staff are so wonderful to work with; so highly skilled and relaxed. The number of truly amazing patient-surviving-the-impossible stories I collected up were almost endless, and I was only there for 3 months!!
Sadly, I've now had to leave my home :( and have just starting working as the multi-trauma registrar (generally, we change to a new job every 13 weeks - good experience before specialising fully). I was somewhat trepidatious at first, especially given I'm not surgically orientated in any
it's supposed to be one of the busiest jobs in the hospital, but actually, it's not so bad! It is insanely
busy (I worked a 15 hr shift the first day with no break, no water, and no food!), but I think that's why I'm enjoying it. It's quite an adrenaline rush! :p I don't think I could take much more than 13 weeks tho. Then, I rotate onto anaesthetics for 6 months (awesome awesome awesome), and then back to my home!! ICU rocks hard :p
In other news, hubby got a job in Canberra! YAY! He is so smart :) So he'll be moving up in the coming weeks. I predict a lot of traveling between the two of us over the coming months, but eventually I'll follow him up once my contract is up at my current hospital (it's a really good job and will help with future jobs etc). So for the moment, we're in a flurry of organising at home with an interstate move, whilst I'm in a constant flurry at work with a multitude of patients. Should be a fun couple of months :p
I know I'm so completely slack at updating LJ, but seriously, my life isn't all that interesting. I mean, honestly, who wants to read, every day "Today I got up. I had cereal for breakfast. Then I went to work and ran around like a headless chook all day. It was cool. Yes, I am sad and have no life. Then I went home. We had meat pies from the 7-11 for dinner cause we couldn't be bothered cooking. Afterwards, I went to bed"?? No one wants to read that.
