1. Name a career you would NOT want to do and tell why.
I don't want a desk job where I sit in a cubicle and have no contact with other people during the day.  I am very much a people person, a talker, and definitely couldn't handle sitting at a desk, staring at a computer all day, every day.  Very mundane.
Also, as a nurse, I hate med/surg!  I hate suctioning trachs, inserting or removing NG tubes, and wound care is enough to nearly make me pass out.

2. What’s the best present you ever received for your birthday?
Probably my 30th birthday.  My mom arranged a card shower from all my distant relatives and she gave me a nice Relic watch.  Love it, unfortunately, it has bitten the dust.  I thought it was just a dead battery.  I got a new battery put in it and it worked for all of 5 minutes.  But it was the perfect size, two tone, just nice.
3.What do you hide behind?   
 At work, I hide behind my need to be the best.  This actually becomes self defeating because then everyone comes to me for everything and I start feeling overwhelmed.  But I hate confrontation so I just keep doing it until I can't take it anymore and have to reduce hours or find another position elsewhere.
In life in general, I hide behind my sarcasm.  Sometimes people don't know how to take me because of that sarcasm.  Perhaps I just come across as a bitch to some.  But sarcasm is my shield.

*I also added Drazil's award to my blog for BYOC.  I admit, I held off because my mom reads my blog and not sure she'd get it.*

  1. Welllll - if she doesn't get it you must simply tell her and then she can be a ho-bag too...haha. Great answers as always!
