“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” -T.S. Eliot
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Australia has obviously become last year’s language (or the language of 3 years ago) and my life has changed immensely in that time. I finished up my first year of nursing in Tulsa and moved back to OKC for a couple of years. In that time I met some crazy good people and had some crazy good adventures. The biggest adventure was the dive into travel nursing.
For anyone who is unfamiliar, travel nursing allows nurses to take short-term (usually around 3 months) contracts at hospitals with needs all over the country. The nurses make great money and get to live in awesome places, while the hospital fills a short term need, taking strain off of their core staff. I’ve been traveling for almost a year now, and this is where I’ve decided to begin..again.
Earlier this week, I moved to New York City, The Big Apple, The City that Never Sleeps, The Empire City, etc. I flew in with two suitcases, a contract to work at Metropolitan Hospital, and not enough money. So let’s get started.
