Angus, the overwhelming paranoia last at least 26 years, but that’s all the experience I have had with you, so it may be longer than that; but at least now you know why I always nixed those trips to Southeastern Europe.
I am currently fiihsinng up my BA in Child Development and Family Studies and thus far I have only work with children from 2 weeks to adolescent while helping support their families. The Physician that I would want to work under is an Obstetrics (OB) because they are in direct contact with pregnant women and their children during pregnancy. I would choose this particular specialty for a variety of reason such as having the opportunity to see individuals become parent for the first time, seeing how much love is surrounded in the process, being there to help the mothers while there in a vulnerable state. One of my main reasons is because I think that the whole birthing process is fascinating and to be able to be a part of family’s lives while going through this process, I imagine to be extremely rewarding.A of physician specialty that I would least want to work with would be a psychiatrist. Although I believe that psychiatrist do some spectacular work and help a lot of people through difficult situations I personally believe that this job would be to emotionally draining and overwhelming for me. This makes me question whether or not I would be able to handle it. When I set out to do a job my goal is to do the best that I can and I don’t feel that I could successfully do this job to the best of my ability.
For me this is a relatively easy question, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both “sides” of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the “barbaric” nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.
as the parent of a newly turned 13 year old, i can assure you of this: the overwhelming paranonia does not pass when they reach 13 — in fact, it gets just a tad worse! do you ever stop worrying? no… that’s why parenting is a 24/7 for life job… (something they neglect to cover in lamaze class. ah well…).
but here’s the flip side: it is the most amazing, wonderous journey you will ever take. so hang on, catch the wave and enjoy – it is going to be the best ride you could ever take.
congrats on the arrival of pru – she is adorable and we cannot wait to meet her! and fyi, sleep when the baby sleeps.
Renee – I agree about the books but from a different pecviertpse. I do enjoy my Kindle. It is very convenient for a working mom of 3.What bothers me about replacing published content with digital content is that history can be rewritten at the press of a delete button. It is fitting to tell this today, September 11, 2011. One week before September 11, 2001, I was going through my e-mails. I had subscribed to The New York Times online and was looking at their e-mail which had links to some top articles pertaining to categories of interest which I had chosen. One of the articles stood out and it was worth printing to show to my husband. The article was about a man called Osama bin Laden who while at his son’s wedding that week openly boasted about his emminent efforts to strike the United States. Little did I know then was that this unheard of person would be the most talked about man the next week. My husband read the article and we talked about it but by the end of the week the print out went to the recycling. Then that fatal Tuesday came. A few days later, I was stunned to hear that name again and remembered. I immediately went back to my e-mails. I clicked on the link to pull up the article again; however, instead of the article which I had read a week prior, there was a different article about 9/11. I wrote an e-mail requesting this article to New York times with a forward of their e-mail which showed the link. The answer I received was that they decided to have an article which reflected the current events. They had no obligation to keep on-line content the same since it was not a published article in hard print.Need I say, I no longer subscribe to them.In all of the coverage that followed September 11th, I never heard one word about Osama bin Laden’s speech at his son’s wedding or the fact that The New York Times had even done an article on this. It’s a scary thought that facts could be cut and paste in or out of our history.
Depends on which child and probably how close together. We’re much more relaxed about the third than we were about the first. I think this is heightened by the fact that they arrived in rapid 2004, 2006, 2007 succession.
What’s remarkable is the degree to which they communicate with you, if you pay attention.
– The brownies sound quite spieacl I’d never consider pairing them with blackberry for some reason. I love raspberry with chocolate, so go figure. On books: My husband called me from the liquidation this past weekend asking what I might be interested in. I’ve watched from afar, not wanting to be a part of it all because it makes me sad as well. But I’m still optimistic and will most likely stay that way. I don’t own a Kindle, nor do I order books to read on my iPad, and I don’t expect to. Instead, I will continue to purchase real books, keep them in my home, treasure those I’ve raised my boys loving, and frequent used book stores in person, or purchase from on-line. Never say die.
Sara,I have question.My hair color is dark brown/black. I want to dye my hair into dark red / bdrugnuy. I don’t want to bleaching my hair.I want to use permanent dye. I live in Indonesia. Commonly available brands are L’oreal and Garnier. Do you have any suggestions, what color suit me? And which products are right for me and should I use?I also want to have a few streaks/highlights in my hair with bright colors. Such as blonde, or whatever fits.I don’t know if it matters, but my skin is yellow Asia. So it might be to adjust the color of my hair.Thank you so much
