Things I Have Learned During Internship #3

Three things this time:

1) It seems that you get good and comfortable in a rotation, and then is time to move on and I don't want to move on from this one because I really like it. Also, the next rotation scares me.

2) I am tired. A lot. Sometimes it seems like it is out of proportion to the hours I'm working, which aren't bad, but I know this tiredness isn't excessive. This happened last time I started to work full-time after uni. It passes. Slowly.

3) Being looked down on as "just an intern" by patients is now amusing rather than affronting. I know I'm just the intern and I'm happy to have somebody else look after you if you don't think I'm good enough. It makes my "to-do" list a few items shorter. ;)

And one extra thing that I already knew:

I don't get a lot of time for blog posting, and there are so many things that I can't and won't ever write about, so the writing here is more sporadic.
