As I'm writing this, I'm going crazy in an isolation room due to the airborne precautions I'm stuck on. Feeling crazy must mean I'm feeling better since the first few days here at the hospital flew by when I was unstable. I came here on June 6 after having (what I thought) was just a … Continue reading Being a Patient as a Healthcare Professional
It seems like a reoccurring theme that time is passing by too quickly and I'm not making time to enjoy the moments. I'm forcing myself to relax a bit with an upcoming vacation but here's some things I've been busy with the past couple months! Nutrition Month 2017! March is the month where dietitians nerd … Continue reading Goodbyes and hellos!
This title is the best way to describe my past month. As you may have seen on my social media, I'm making sure I take some time out of my week to really focus on self care - I took a bit too much on the past week and feel SO much better about all … Continue reading Balancing Act
Travelling to MANY places has been our must for the 4 weeks of annual vacation I'm given. I used my last bit of vacation the past couple weeks and headed over for a (very short) trip to Bolivia and Peru. Although we ran into some issues including ++altitude sickness, traveller's diarrhea, facial sun burns, bug bites … Continue reading Travel Bug
After reading through some previous posts, I realized I haven't written a 'rambles and rants' in a while! I've been trying to juggle a few too many things at once (saying no can be hard..) and made some exciting decisions on a new (short term) job change! Baking away my days off. I'm pretty sure … Continue reading On to the Next One
A recurring theme on my blog: time is FLYING by! This month has involved lots of learning and exploring. Only bummer - that summer is almost over.. Continuing to apply to various jobs and interviewing. It's always a good idea to keep up with interviewing skills. By applying to various jobs, it has given me … Continue reading Summer Blues
The past month or so has flown by and been really busy (more related to personal rather than professional reasons). It's also been a HUGE learning curve of a past bit of time since I've been training in other areas of dietetic practice to broaden my scope and understanding of clinical nutrition and what other … Continue reading Work hard, play hard
I'm BACK from my 3 week trip! I had a solid week to recover from jet lag (it took a few days to finally get back into a "normal" routine again) and I can say it's nice to be home. I felt quite refreshed going back to work and have spent my nights sleeping or … Continue reading Where’s Whitney? Part 2.
Although my guy and I recently went on a few week trip in November to Egypt/Dubai/Turkey, we couldn't resist doing another this month (although I may regret this decision at the end of the year when I realize I have no more vacation time left to use..) Where did we go this time? Far too … Continue reading Where’s Whitney?
I feel the tone of most of these rambling posts revolves around where I'm going with my career. I've been doing a ton of reflecting recently and with my guy being out of town this week, I have a lot of time to start "doing" rather than just "thinking." Let's take a step back and … Continue reading When I grow up..
