Update and some parental bragging

May 15th, 2016 at 09:18 am

For those following along on my new job, my first shift at the urgent care center is scheduled for May 26 in the evening (5-9pm). I'm going in 2 days this week to shadow the director while he's working so I can start learning the flow of the place.

My orientation for the hospital system is May 23. I'm sure that the vast majority of what they cover won't apply to me since I won't be working in the hospital but I'm required to attend and they pay me for it.

I've got 2 more training days for the occupational medicine department at the end of June.

On to the bragging part. My daughter is not the type who is comfortable with us talking about her accomplishments so I can't share things like this on facebook but I wanted to tell someone Smile. She finished her 2nd year of college with her best performance so far. For the spring semester, she had all A's or A minuses giving her a 3.88 GPA. That raised her cumulative GPA to a 3.398 I think. Last semester we were kind of nervous because she needs a 3.2 to keep her scholarship and a 3.3 to stay in the honors program and she was in danger of missing those marks but she pulled it together this semester and firmed up her position. That puts her on Dean's List for the semester, too, which is always a nice thing to have on your resume.

    Congratulations! Good for her. And why I read a thread on someone threatening their kids college funding based on grades. And more than one person pointed out that depending on classes it's not easy so as long as there is effort and you can tell making all A requirement was rather harsh. Glad it worked out.

    That is, of course a fantastic GPA. Your daughter must be both smart and a hard worker. Smile

    Please forward an 'ATTA Girl!' Yahoo... wonderful score. The 1st two years have zipped by so fast. Hope she's still enjoying her choices. Will she take some time off to holiday and possibly work the rest of summer? Exciting to see you take a different direction career-wise. Look forward to hearing your opinion.

    It does feel good to know our children can succeed and push themselves when needed to make a goal!

    Thanks, all.

    snafu, she has no definite work plans for the summer. She applied for a youth group adviser job that would start in July but is still waiting to hear back from them. She is taking a summer class online so she'll be working on that. I think she said she'll have 4 papers to write for that plus an essay final so that will keep her busy. We'll be in Florida for 2 weeks in July also.
