After being a bum for so long…

… I finally got to exercise a few muscles and sweat under the sun.

After ranting for a good two months about my application at a certain hospital, they finally sent me a text message last Friday asking me to come in for my physical exam yesterday (Monday). Off I went, expecting to be done before lunchtime, after all, how long can a simple chest x-ray, blood extraction, and specimen collection, take? But no. Oh no, no, no. Things should be far more difficult and complicated. After going to and from 3 separate buildings, having all the paperwork and fees taken care of, waiting for people to do their jobs, I accomplished almost everything at 4 pm, all ready to lay on the cold cement and sleep right then and there. I hadn’t slept the night before because my sleep-wake pattern is in a different time zone.

Today was no different. Still with not much sleep, still had to go back and forth… fixing, submitting, a seemingly endless number of paperwork.

GAH. I’m just about ready to crash as I’m typing this…

Update: I got in! :p I feel bad for those who got eliminated because of some *very* minor health problems. One very intelligent girl was deemed “unfit to work” because of mild asthma, one has her clearance on hold because of a slightly above normal platelet count… I thought I wouldn’t get in because they had me repeat my chest x-ray. Anyhoo I’m so excited! :) Thanks to everyone who sent congratulatory messages! *hugs*
