I've been working at the hospital now for a little over a month. I just work weekends, and while I come home exhausted, I often find myself looking forward to going to work. I even love the smell of the hand soap. I feel like a dry sponge, looking to soak up everything I possibly can, learn everything thrown my way, and talk to everyone who'll talk to me.
I still need to figure out shadowing. It's intimidating, trying to conjure up the cahones to talk to a doctor and ask. Who do I ask? What do I say? How does it work? The thing is, I really want to do it. I want to see what it's like. I want to spend a day shadowing as many different kinds of doctors as I possibly can. If there's something to be seen about medicine, I want to see it.
It's become an obsession, really. I wish I could say the same about organic chemistry. ;)
