My Oasis

I am exhausted mentally and physically. I have no balance in my life. I am lonely. My family is 90 miles away through the week and I feel like I am million miles away.
 I am enjoying coffee at this very moment at the oasis of Joseph Beth. I some how escaped early today from my student status where we are expected to stay until someone tells us to go and we are expected not to complain about it.....just keep swimming, just keep swimming, what do we do, we swim, swim
An older gentleman just sat down, he is confused with his iPhone-he is amusing me--he has a full beard with stash that curls up ever so slightly all with a sports coat and hat.
The younger gentleman who served me my coffee is handsome and I can't figure out his story - why is he working here, he looks too old to be aspiring to work in a coffee shop. Oh well. Its nice to have distractions and this seems to be working for me. I already feel more relaxed.
 Today in OR I worked with a good crew, had a good precpeptor, had nice and wierd patient's. Overall a successful day for my student status. No bleeding lips, chipped teeth, destaturation, aspiration, death, only minor BP problems after induction-nothing new there. A hip, A knee, and a D&C with ablation Thats enough about that.
A red head enters the scene of my oasis wearing a hounds-tooth shaw and she is ordering.....something with syrup, oh she has been shopping at dillards, her shoulder bag is HUGE, of course she has her boots on-everyone does these days.
The indian kid sitting across from just blew his nose-in public-not something I like to see-ever.
Another older gentleman sitting across from has his laptop out, headphones on, and seems to texting-boring.
I really adore the older couple who are both enjoying coffee and having conversation-awe he picked up her empty to cup to throw it away for her as he smiles-that's love.
I should be more productive with my free time but this seems to be making me happy-who knew.

Take only what you need
