everyday to internship. Nope. Not there. Then I moved to look in my backpack where I put my clothes after changing. Nope. Not there either. Maybe I left it in the car when I was changing. I went to look in the back seats and no luck. My mom brought me some other pants and shoes that day because I wanted a nicer pair. It has to be in that bag. I went to ask my mom and she checked the bag which she already put in the outside trash. She didn’t have luck either. I stayed home an extra 30 minutes while my mom went to drop off my brother at school. During that half an hour I looked crazy panicking while searching for the badge. Once my mom came home I told her I’ll just explain to them how I forgot it. My mom completely disregarded me and went straight outside. She came back with my badge! She goes on to explain that when she threw away the bag it was it she dumped it into the recycling. So thanks mom for throwing that away. As I am currently writing this, I left my badge at home today.
A view important moment happened during my second day here. I was talking to Ricardo about college and debating about the major I want to go into. He was telling me how I don’t need to decide right now, and how I should really think about what I envision doing in the medical field. I do want to help patients directly so I’ve been leaning in to going to medical school and become a nurse or doctor, maybe a surgeon. He wasn’t even certain himself about becoming a doctor after being a nurse at my site. This also helped me think about becoming a nurse and then if I would enjoy something more I’d go back to school and work towards becoming a doctor/surgeon. I know I am still young and have time to think about what I really want to do in life, but I think that I am on the right path to deciding.
