I kept putting off restarting my blog, because of all the "catchup" I'd need to do.

So I'm skipping that catching-up part, and just starting again.

Yesterday, I started with a new practice. I'll be with them through August, which is after I graduate, but it's what I had to do to get a spot there and finish up my numbers.

I was quite comfortable at the old practice. This one is closer, and it feels good to jump in as a senior and feel pretty competent, but there is a lot of adjusting to do. Including 4 days a week of clinic. And hour-long appointments (which, IMO, is ridiculous, I greatly prefer 45 minute slots - I understand wanting to make space for your clients to talk and to deal with anything that comes up, but about 99% of the time you wind up talking about cats and who needs a new hamper). The charting at the new place sucks. Their supply closet is a wreck. They don't have an online schedule (working on it...). The schedule is hectic because they are changing locations. I remember feeling highly irritable the last time I switched practices, too, so I'm sure I'll settle in.
