I have not been this tired since my internships in Kentucky. Oh. Em. Gee.
|1st day of work in Kentucky with my awesome Medusa hair (July 2009)|
So my shifts yesterday and today were from 7 AM to 3:30 PM. Honestly, not that bad. The only really sucky part is having to wake up at 5:15 AM, which is also similar to my wake-up time in KY. The exhausting part is being on my feet 8 of the 8.5 hours I am there...and having crappy inserts in my rubber boots that don't cushion (my bad for not buying Dr. Scholl's and getting an off-brand instead).
Yesterday was my first day. I did a lot of standing around watching everyone else work. I did get a little bit of training/education but not a ton and I felt so inept compared to all the techs. I have soooo much to learn! I did get to help in NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) with an enteritis foal and Medicine with a 106* fevering mare. I don't know if they figured out what was wrong with her yet.

Hopefully tomorrow I get to do more but I also don't know how to do much, so my "doing" might not be much. They don't exactly want me screwing up something important and having to explain it to the owner. I do need to learn how to do stuff, though, so hopefully I can get some training!
