Back in the saddle

...well back in the rolling office chair...doesn't quite have the same effect.

Tuesday was my first day at my externship. Working-laboring for free is more accurate- at a Hospital health network. I was like a kid the night before the first day of school. Laying out my outfit, packing my lunch--in my new lunch box-- and unable to sleep, waking every hour or so to look at the clock.

Packed and ready to go!
Wondering what will everyone be like?  Will I be the new kid-- all awkward with my lunch tray looking for a place to sit and be welcomed  to join the "cool kids" or will it be a mean girls episode?

Will I appear confident and knowledgeable? Or come across as socially awkward and sound like a dumb ass?
What kind of boss will I have?

It turns out my obssessing worrying was for nothing, except to make me look slightly a lot haggard and  hate my alarm clock due to lack of sleep! The "new coworkers" were really nice and friendly. I really enjoyed my day. It felt really good to be back in the cubicle (even if  it is temporary). I haven't worked in 2 years, since I have been focused on school. I was surprised how much I missed the routine. 

It is so exciting to be in my last semester and to know I am soooo close to completing my goals!
