For those who don’t know, I started my new job a while ago. I decided to take the night shift because I was always interested in it as a student…so I wanted to explore and see if it was something I would enjoy as an employee.
Welp, one thing is for certain…my sleeping pattern is completely fucked up. This became blatantly obvious to me just a few moments ago.
So, I was typing up an essay for an online class I’m taking; the post was about hematology. Specifically, the subject was about Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT).
As I typed and typed and hit “submit” into the online forum discussion…I realized I had typed, about eleven times, Heparin Induced ThrombocytoPENIS.
Sweet baby Neptune. What have I done?
Now, before anyone panics…because I fucking did… there is in fact an “edit” button for certain discussion postings.
Best. Invention. Ever.
So, it’s fixed now. But for a good five minutes I really thought I had just submitted a graded assignment with the word penis eleven times in it. I probably would have looked like the least mature nursing student of all time.
In my defense…the S key is right there next to the damn A key on the stupid keyboard!!!!!!! And my lack of sleep didn’t help me catch the error because I may have half-assed the proof reading. Also, don’t judge me, I’m sure I’m not the only person who copy/pastes long words so that they don’t have to type them over and over again…
Since I’m still in the process of changing allllll my daaaamn pictures from photobucket to flickr (why do I post so fucking much? Seriously… its only been three months since I started this blog thing), I haven’t had the time to make a proper post. I’d like to offer you another picture of a pokemon (ditto this time) eating a burger.
Also, here’s a great song (that’s stuck in my head) that I wish to entertain you with.
This one keeps popping up in my head too:
Okay, back to work. I’ll have a fresh, new, actual post soon [hopefully].
November 21, 2013 at 6:52 pm
You’ve been gone! You’re posting less than me now.
November 21, 2013 at 10:38 pm
I know man! Nightshift really fucks with my sleeping :(
When I get home I fall asleep, and then all this time has passed and its like an hour before I got to go straight back to the hospital!
I hope I get used to it soon so I can go back to being productive. And by productive I mean procrastinate by drawing my dumb doodles.
November 21, 2013 at 10:42 pm
Same thing happened to me when I worked overnights. Seemed like all I was doing was working and sleeping.

Purity Ring is like a shotgun blast of candy in 0 gravity.
November 21, 2013 at 10:42 pm
Your slow-motion description of deliciousness only makes sense to me if it was shot into my stomach so that I could eat the Purity Ring candies.
Purity Ring is pretty good, although I’m quite picky with which songs I like from the shrines album.
November 21, 2013 at 10:05 pm
Thumbo..thrombon..thrombo oh I’ll just say Hi! don’t go super saiyan on me :P
November 21, 2013 at 10:42 pm
I promise I won’t charge up on you man, I’m pretty tired…and pretty lazy.
November 21, 2013 at 10:48 pm
Whew :D well, I hope you are having a great evening still :)
November 21, 2013 at 11:30 pm
i became tired more often when i stopped eating meat and switched to a vaginaterian.
November 22, 2013 at 12:30 am
i see what you did there
November 22, 2013 at 12:53 am

November 22, 2013 at 12:54 am

samsung galaxy or apple ipenis?
November 22, 2013 at 12:59 am
really though? REALLY?
November 22, 2013 at 1:04 am
really. sorry too funny. i think you should write about why penis (out of the gazillion words to choose from) was epically freudian. your readers would enjoy, especially those on wordpenis.
okay im done.
November 22, 2013 at 1:09 am
fiiiiiiiiirst of all, it was 1 letter different! just saiyan.
second of all, wordpenis sounds like the name of a fanfiction website – you should make that shit and get rich.
November 22, 2013 at 1:15 am
i was going with Penis of The Caribbean: Dead Man Vagina, for fanfiction.
okay i’m done!!
November 22, 2013 at 1:24 am
…yeah, okay guy.
November 22, 2013 at 1:43 am
Hahaha so many giggles from this. I think you should have left it and waited to see if it was noticed… I tend to skip over large words when I’m reading. I’m just like “the patient is exhibiting an acute case of hmmmmmmm with a possible hmmmmmm.” But that’s also because that hamster running on the wheel in my brain is actually a wee little turtle wearing a fur coat and some things are just not worth the effort.
Gah, I say the weirdest things at night. This is why I wasn’t allowed to have wifi at home for most of 2013.
November 22, 2013 at 1:44 am
LMAO wait, wait, why didn’t you have wifi at home this year???
November 22, 2013 at 3:08 am
Because I banned myself!!!!!!!!
I felt I was not being creatively productive. I went an ENTIRE YEAR without the interwebs.
Now I’ve had it back for like two months and my sleeping has decreased by 50%. But I have a blog now. Hahaha
December 2, 2013 at 6:05 pm
Yeah, blogging sucks up a lot of time…tasty, tasty time.
You are my favorite person for going an entire year without the internets, like, I bet that was so tremendously liberating.
December 2, 2013 at 6:26 pm
I still had it at work but I was also going through a weird phase in my career where I was trying to work really hard and impress my boss etc. etc. Needless to say I’m over all that now ;)
December 2, 2013 at 6:30 pm
Oh I see, dang, so not so liberating after all, lol. I’m glad you’re over it cause you’re my favorite part of the internet <3
December 2, 2013 at 6:31 pm
Hahaha that’s the best compliment ever!!! Thank you! :)
November 22, 2013 at 1:45 am
Having a post with a Ditto is always worth it, even if it is short. I want a ditto around I have an ice cream sandwich. Then I would get two.
December 2, 2013 at 6:06 pm
D: but then you would eat your ditto!!!!!!!! nooooooo!!!!!!!!!!
December 3, 2013 at 12:41 am
Perhaps just a vanillite.
November 22, 2013 at 4:04 am
“Accidental Penis”… kinda like “Secret Squirrel”, but with less fur and a waterproof hat!
December 2, 2013 at 6:06 pm
You could see it that way, yeah.
November 22, 2013 at 8:10 am
LOL! Oh, my colleagues and I had a good giggle over this!
December 2, 2013 at 6:14 pm
XD!!!!! About the word penis or that I fudged up the word thrombocytopenia?
December 3, 2013 at 2:03 am
The fact you fudged it up the way you did ahhahahahahaha! Oh man!
November 23, 2013 at 5:35 am
I expected nothing less of you. You make me proud to be your friend!
December 2, 2013 at 6:16 pm
November 23, 2013 at 11:58 am
Good lord! Thank you to the person who allowed an Edit button on discussion posts!!!!!! I’m sure your class would have gotten a good laugh out of it =) I’m sure no one noticed!
How often are you working the night shift? My husband started a night shift at his first job as an EMT and it was an experience. His sleep schedule was way off, too! Hang in there until something during “normal” hours comes along(if you can and want to, that is!), sleep is very important young lady!! <3 hehe.
Anywho, I do miss your amazingly funny posts but you have to make that bacon! =) SO, I'm super excited either way whenever I see a post from you! If anything, it gives your creative mind time to think of another amazing post!
December 2, 2013 at 6:50 pm
LOL I know!!! Edit buttons are the best. I work night shift full time even though I’m per diem, the reason being that they’re still in the process of hiring more full time/part time night shifters.
Yeah, sleep really is important! LOL! And I’m missing it! How long did he do night shift? I think I’d like to do it for a few more months.
<3 ILU CHRISTINA! You're such a great person, always supporting me!
December 2, 2013 at 9:02 pm
<2 ILU2! =)
He worked that shift for a whole year. I dunno how, I think we both just got numb to it and the year just went by. LOL. I think once you get a schedule down for yourself, you'll be okay. It's just such a shock to your sleeping schedule, but I know you can do it, super lady!!!!!!! <3
November 24, 2013 at 11:41 pm
lol lol lol you crack me up!
December 2, 2013 at 6:59 pm
:D I’m glaaad!
November 27, 2013 at 4:13 am
Giiiiirl I am going to come over and kill the nightshift if it keeps on interfering with your posting. Booooooo… we miss you.
December 2, 2013 at 7:06 pm
Don’t do itttt, if they find you then you’ll have to stop blogging!!!!!!!!! Or can one blog from prison? I have no idea.
I miss you D:
December 2, 2013 at 8:38 pm
You must rejoin us in the land of WordPress! And I don’t think they allow prison blogging, which is a damn shame ’cause I’d try and be a pioneer at it.
November 27, 2013 at 1:26 pm
Hahahaha!!! I laughed so hard… and loud. Which people don’t like at 4:30 am. Totally blaming you for that one. I am glad you were able to edit though! That’s good news. Great news, even.
Nice song selections! I do like Two Door Cinema Club. Good stuff. Never heard the one before it, but really dig that too. Thanks! :)
December 2, 2013 at 6:11 pm
What are you doing up at 4:30am??? You should be working the night shift WITH ME if you’re up at that hour!
Editing is like a a warm hug from a toasted sandwich, it just feels right and delicious.
I adore Two Door Cinema Club! Now if only they would tour around here more often!!! >:(
November 28, 2013 at 3:45 pm
Clearly got it on the brain…
Hope the night shifts are going well. May be doing something similar shortly, and am massively looking forward to it. Working through the night, that is… not the nursing part.
December 2, 2013 at 6:09 pm
LOLLL, more like I’ve got a lack of sleep on the brain.
Night shifts aren’t bad at all once your body adjusts…I think the first few days of doing it you think the world hates you and you can’t tell up from down…but then things mellow out. What kind of night shift job are you going to be doing???
December 2, 2013 at 7:11 pm
If it happens, it’ll be a writing gig. The magazine I write for may – just may – be on the verge of paying me to go full-time with them early next year. It means that the hours would be kinda down to me, bar interviews and meetings, but I’d also be doing a lot of news reports for the mag’s website… and most of the news drops throughout the day in the States, meaning the small hours over here. I’m a massive fan of working through the night, so I’d absolutely love that.
All a bit up in the air at the moment, though. Fingers crossed.
December 2, 2013 at 7:14 pm
Fingers crossed for sure! That sounds fantastic!
You love working through the night??? I guess I should be asking you for pointers or tips, because I don’t know if I’ve fully got the hang of it just yet.
December 2, 2013 at 7:56 pm
Yeah, I’m not really one for sleep. Thinking about it, I think it’s more the fact that I love writing, and, having a ‘real’ job throughout the day, means that the writing generally happens at night and the early morning. Maybe that’s more it.
My only tip… strong coffee with plenty of sugar. Oh, and drinks with guarana in. Either those or a really exciting film.
November 28, 2013 at 6:55 pm
There could be somebody out there on that forum who saw it and now thinks that is the proper spelling. They’re doomed! D:
December 2, 2013 at 6:08 pm
DOOOOOOOOOOOOMED! Nah, if they saw it, they probably just thought I was an idiot. Or a smart ass.
December 1, 2013 at 1:39 pm
Mistakes were made! What result did you get out of the report, just wondering because I’m somewhat interested in Heamatology (correct way of spelling it xD)
December 2, 2013 at 6:07 pm
I got full marks, but I also write a ton and I’m very meticulous with citations and such. I work mother fucking hard for my grades! Are you European? I always see that spelling from Euro research papers.
December 2, 2013 at 7:04 pm
Citations, references (and bibliography) are very harshly marked! I want to become like you, working hard for my grade (which I plan on doing, lots of late nights :p) . I’m on my second year of university and from now on it counts towards my final grade.
Yes from England :)

Oh wait…I thought you were calling SoFla super boring…which is accurate, but makes me sad.
December 30, 2013 at 2:09 am
Two things. 1. I love Ditto and 2. I love Two Door Cinema Club. I’ve missed your posts and I look forward to you getting into a better sleep routine. I hope you are enjoying your new job!!
