A RANT! and a puppy

I don't like to use my blog as a platform for having a whinge to the world, but today I think I will.  I work in health care, and I really don't think I have the right personality for it. But when you are 17 and choosing a university course, you don't have life experiences and you don't know any better. Every day is extremely stressful working in this profession.  So many patients are ungrateful for the work you do for them.  They want their appointment immediately and then their treatment to be finished yesterday.  My boss works about 100 hours a week for his patients, but not many are appreciative of the extra mile he always goes for them. Even when he only gets 4 hours sleep because he has been at work all night, he still greets each patient with a smile on his face.  So many patients are not happy unitl they have sucked out all your blood and your soul as well.  The demand for specialist healthcare is high, but the numbers of healthcare professionals are low, therefore resulting in long waiting times.  Everyone seems to think they are the centre of the universe and if their demands are not met immediately they think they have the right to become obnoxious. Sometimes the only reason I can face work each day is because I am a servant of God and it is my responsibility to share my skills with society. And I know that all the negatives in life are to be used for spiritual growth, and whenever you work for the Lord, blessing will be given. So I don't really have a right to complain, but sometimes I have to let it all out and purge it from my heart.  So next time you need to see a healthcare professional,  give a little thought for the umpteen extra hours they put in everyweek (without pay) and cut them some slack.

Ok, now that is out of the way, here's something much more pleasant...

 How cute is this little puppy?  I made him from a kit I bought in Tokyo.  Isn't it funny how a softie can out a smile on your face no matter what your age.
I have one more puppy craft kit to make, which is a sweet little English Bulldog. So then I will be able to stock up on some more craft kits when I travel to Japan next month.  I am counting the days until I go, and it is a very good incentive to get up and go to work everyday.
And this is where I will be staying ...
right on the doorstep of the Shibuya scramble.  I am one lucky girl.


  1. Wonderful! where did you buy the kit?
    i am gg to Japan soon! Will get some! if u need anything, just contact me! ^^

  2. Thank you for commenting on my blog!
    This puppy is small and is soft and fluffy and is very cute

  3. It takes very special people to work in the healthcare industry. That's what I feel.

    You are going to Japan soon? I am sooooo jealous.
