New Beginnings

Well here we are again, way over due for a post, but I have a good excuse I promise! This one is going to be sort of a combined nursing and lifestyle post, so bear with me, there is a lot to update, and I will try to be succinct and not bore you too much.

I have now moved to a new city, gotten a new job, and moved into a new apartment with a new roommate. Well I guess we can call him a roommate for arguments sake, but really he’s my boyfriend (yay! finally, that only took 2.5 years).

I now reside in the beautiful and diverse San Francisco, CA. I know that I still can’t believe that I live here.

I have a new job in an Intermediate ICU for Neurosurgery, the acuity is DEFINITELY a lot higher than that of my previous position, but I am excited for the challenge that it will bring in the future and all that I will learn. So far everyone at work has been friendly and helpful and want to see me succeed, which makes for a great work environment (not that I didn’t have this before, it’s just always something I am worried about when going to a new place).

My new apartment is fabulous, and is within short walking distance to…

  1. The train, which I take for work most days
  2. Great restaurants
  3. Union Square
  4. The Embarcadero
  5. And several other things which I will stop listing otherwise this list will be a mile long

which is nice for afternoon strolls and little mini weekend adventures. Especially now that I live with…

ETHAN! That’s the boyfriend for those of you who don’t know. He’s great and puts up with my antics so that makes everything better. We have been doing little day trips and walking around in places and decorating the apartment, which makes me happy so all in all not so bad :).

Little day-cation to Stinson Beach! So pretty!

Ozzie the cat tolerated the move well, it took him a couple of days to warm up to the idea of the new apartment, but now he loves to sit in front of the window and bird watch, and keep a close eye on all of the goings on occurring on the street outside our window.

Excuse the mess behind this picture, we were still trying to figure out where everything should go, but Oz just looks so content I had to post this picture :).

Until next time, or if there is anything you would like to hear about in particular, leave a message in the comments!
