I'm currently on a break from university. This time is intended to allow us to apply for jobs and prepare ourselves for life in the real world. Many people have asked me what it feels like to almost be a qualified nurse. To this I tend to explain that if I were a blacksmith having completed an apprenticeship I would be considered a journeyman blacksmith. The journeyman is someone who has fully learned the core of their trade but is far from being a master. I am soon to be a journeyman nurse.

Whilst I am waiting to start my final placement I have been getting rather interested in the political situation. Over the last two weeks I have found my self at one point or another supporting each of the three main parties. After weeks of seeing the pro's and con's of each of the parties I have come to the following conclusion. I really dont care who is in power, all I really want is for tomorrow to be more or less the same as yesterday. Where there are sick people there will always be nurses. so I will always have a job(a job I love), I have a mortgage, a gorgeous fiance and a very mischievious cat. My world is a near perfect place. In the coming years there are things which may further enrich my life. By and large nothing that truly matters to me will be effected should any one of the party leaders become prime minister.
