Daisy Update (39)

Hi guys!

So I've been running around for pretty much all of the last two weeks! Work wasn't even the biggest part of it, which felt a bit weird to be honest! I've been working on one of the nursing floors and I kinda love this part of my job the best, you really get to know the patients and I really enjoy the teamwork between us and the nursing staff. And I get to socialize a bit more because they've switched things up a while ago and now there are always 2 residents on one floor, which is nice :)
My two evening shifts were crazy busy, but well, I don't really expect anything else these days ;)

Anyway, between preparing for a presentation and dinner guests and just generally not being home all that much, I was exhausted by the time the weekend came around and then it was time to go to Antwerp with my friends! I'd been looking forward to it for months and it was so much fun!! I've known them since high school and we don't nearly spend enough time together, it was so good to just catch up with them on a deeper level than just the latest happenings. We talked about everything and anything and I just loved it.

Antwerp isn't a very beautiful city, it's pretty grey and not really clean, but the people are really friendly and I love their accent and it is a fun city to spend a weekend in. We went shopping and tried to do the cultural thing on Sunday, but the weather was so nice we ended up eating outside and just sitting there enjoying the weather.
I hardly slept at all that weekend and by the time we got home Sunday night I was SO TIRED!

Last Thursday I had my interview for the GP residency and guys, I don't know what to think! They'll let me know in 2 weeks and I really hope they'll accept me for the program cause I want this so much and it would be devastating if I didn't get it... But I'm sort scared that I messed it up, I just really don't know what they thought of me and it's nerve wrecking to have to wait this long!

And because I've been psyching myself out over this I've already ordered two pretty dresses, a cute shirt and books. And I've been eyeing the new Sony Reader, but that's also because last week the cover for my ereader really broke and because it's an older model, I can't get a new one for it and it's REALLY ANNOYING! Also, there's this awesome deal which expires tomorrow and I'm just gonna think it over till tonight I guess.
Is it weird that I don't hesitate to spend that amount of money on clothes, but do have to think about it for something I pretty much use daily? I also feel guilty towards my ereader, because while it freezes every once in a while, it still works. Any advice?

Yesterday was my dad's birthday and we spent the day at their place. His brothers and sister also came over and my aunt has little kids and I love seeing them! They've grown so much since last August and seriously, I love getting my old toys out of the attic and rediscovering them with my aunt's 4-year-old!

Today I'm going to try and catch up on all the posts in Bloglovin and if I have time left read some ;) I have a whole glorious week off from work and I intend to try and destress a bit and read and spend lots of time with the boyfriend :) Oh, and participate in Dewey's Read-a-Thon next Saturday!
I hope you're all having a lovely Sunday!


  1. I'm playing catch-up on Bloglovin today too :-) LOL.

    You have been SO busy! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, but I bet your residency interview went fine :)

    I hope you have a good week!

    1. Aww, thanks, I really hope you're right!!

  2. I say if you can afford the ereader, buy it! Life is short, make yourself happy as much as possible :)

    Good luck with the GP residency, I will be thinking positive thoughts over the next two weeks.

    1. Thank you!
      I'm trying to buy it, the website isn't working with me though...

  3. Good luck with the job! I hope you get it as well. And Antwerp sounds like it was a lot of fun :)

  4. Good luck with the GP thing :)
    Your life does sound rather crazy at present but also way productive!

    As for the ereader, I would say go for it! You do use yours a lot and better do it before your current one goes caput, while you still got the chance to transfer your files and arrange them just as you like them :)
