Hello everyone, long time no talk. I trust all of you have been doing well, and staying healthy.
Not much has really been going on with me. I have been keeping up with my work and getting those occasional talks about how my work performance needs to be a bit better. I’m all for constructive criticism but it’s like every once in awhile would kill management to give me compliment? Everyone needs affirmation that their doing something right every once in awhile.
I hate how people take a situation and blame it on someone else for their lack of communication. For example, when scheduling a VNG for patient, a letter is sent out to them asking questions about their health etc. Mind you I’ve been working for a couple of months now, and just recently found out a little over a week ago, that a letter is suppose to be sent out. The Secretary is looking at me with annoyance, but it’s like you’re the one who didn’t tell me that. So she was out last Monday, so I filled in for her; and I got a call from the hospital and they wanted me to schedule some appointments for some patients , the lady on the phone is just fed up with life. Frankly, I was over her attitude-it’s like “you called me.” But I stayed calmed and scheduled the patients. At this point I remember VNG’s patients need a letter sent to them .So I made sure to schedule them out for the end of the months so the Secretary could send them the letter and they would have plenty of time to receive it. The nurse on the phone was calling appointments by different names that I hadn’t heard before. Hearing Evaluation=Audio-gram and ENG=VNG. I did leave a note for the Secretary if those are the same things. She has an attitude the next day, and is looking at the scripts for the patients I scheduled yesterday wondering if I scheduled with the patients themselves or hospital? (in a accusing tone like I did something wrong) I told her a hospital. Her: the hospital knows this patients two appoints are a few hours apart? Me: Yes, I went over that with the nurse and she said she didn’t care as long as they all got in on the same day. I swear that wind out of her sails. And she did go over that ENG and VNG are the same thing. Then she talked about a letter needing to be sent to VNG patients, (didn’t bother to show me what it looks like, simply that it’s in her drawer but there isn’t a tab for it.) To which I let her know that’s why I scheduled it far out so the patient could get the letter in time. You could just tell with the look on her face that she wasn’t expecting me to be up on my game.
In other news I have been working on my autobiography, did a few more corrections and additions, I have always been looking into publishing my book, and my issue was looking for either a publisher or a self-publish. Self-publish seems to be the cheaper route, Versus having to pay someone to find a publisher. I finally added a cover to my book., along with the table of contents, I still need to hyperlink the table of contents to each chapter. And I am checking out websites for self-publishing. Hopefully by March I can get this book published, if i can I’d like to do soft-copy and digital.
Speaking of march, my birthday is coming up and I really want to do something Special for my 27th birthday.I have taken time off of work, (still need to do my tax return) if I can save up enough money, I really want to take myself somewhere warm, ideally I’d want to visit LA, but I think I’ll end up going to DC instead. and if I do I want to visit the museum. I don’t think it’ll be bad to do a solo trip.
