So it’s been a while, which really isn’t unexpected. I’ve had a whole lot of change coming my way. I’ve now been at my job for just over two months – two months of insanity, of long hours, of exhaustion, of oxytocin, and of beautiful babies. Being a midwife means you are in a unique position of caring for someone during their best day, or during their worst day. I’ve encountered both, and let me tell you, I feel it all.
On top of working, I recently moved out, into a little house closer to the hospital with my friend Hilary. It’s just the two of us in a little wooden house, slowly becoming a home. It’s got the funniest little nooks and crannies and I can’t wait to share some of my favourite parts once it’s all set up. At the moment my bedroom is literally just a bed – my bedroom furniture remains wrapped up until the termite man comes and possibly blasts a hole in my wall. Fun times.
So I guess this is just a quick little note to say hi, and remind myself that I’m still working at this adulting thing – it’ll take a while, but I’ll get there. And until I do, I’ll just keep looking for an adultier adult to help me out along the way. Fake it till you make it, darlings – that’s my 2016 motto.
