Labor Day Vacay
This weekend I went up north with my parents to visit my grandparents and other family. It was a great weekend. Their city was putting on a Christian music festival with free concerts, testimonies, etc. I went out two nights with some aunts and cousins and sat on the lawn and heard wonderful music. The first night was (is he using a tiny head as a period in this picture?? that is odd) This guy that used to be the lead guy from the Newsboys. LOVED it, it was a like a blast from the past, and we were all singing along. It was really fun. The next night was 10th Avenue North They were good and the guy had a really great testimony, but my favorite was the Newsboys guy. It was just more fun. It was a really great time to catch up with cousins that I don't see very often, and to talk more in depth with my aunts and uncles. My aunt was telling me that she was proud of me, and I felt really affirmed and good. It had been a bit hard feeling like all I saw were couples everywhere I looked at the festival, but I have to put it to rest knowing God knows my heart and my desires, and to keep my focus on following Him. So then yesterday was back to school for a 'lab day'. I got called into the hall for the second time by my teacher. This time it was for saying something about how I was hesitant to use restraints on patients. So the next thing I know I'm being grilled by my teacher in front of everyone and she went on and on about how I'd just let them die if I didn't restrain them. In the hall she said that she could fail me for this because "I wouldn't help people". I was quick to assure her that I would, I'm just hesitant because all they ever taught us so far was that we have to ask permission before we ever touch a patient (and legally if you touch someone against their will that's battery) but now they're saying I have to tie them up and shove tubes wherever necessary --- which one?!?! So she said I have to forget everything I know about paralegal and that if I did have to ever go in front of a jury they wouldn't care if I had to restrain someone, if the end goal was saving their life. So now I have to write a 5 page paper on restraints. So that stinks, but I've been researching all morning so hopefully it will be a kick-a paper and I'll finally know the truth about restraints :) But it was scary. I don't want to fail! :( It was such a long day and I came home with a horrible headache. So quick, easy foods were in order. turkey bacon and green beanies with my staple spices of S & P, garlic powder, and cayenne rolled up the bacon with a fried egg and cheese cut up these peach my friend Liz gave me for a crisp the crisp toppings of oats, spiced walnuts, coconut oil, cinnamon quite tasty! and I vegged out watching The Bodyguard, which I didn't really care that much for, but it was a nice break from school work!
