Happy birthday, dear dispatches.
I hope you don’t mind that I am calling you by that nickname.
Should I be more formal?
And say happy birthday, dear dispatches from the evening shift?
You are 4 years old today.
Yes, I know it took me a long time to settle into posting three times a week, at least.
And yes, I do cheat with Thursdays.
You have been my agony aunt and my stress relief all in one.
Regardless of what the topic is.
I would not have gone through this last 18 months without you.
No, serious, thank you.
The only presents I have for you are my goals for the next year.
I will continue to post at least three times a week, varying the posts as I do.
I will write a grant proposal and tell you all about it.
I will write another abstract proposal since AORN got moved virtual, again.
I will present one of my posters at a conference.
I will apply for a PhD program.
I will write my alma mater about a program bringing periop 101 to their senior students that was announced Sunday.
I will explore writing articles, either for AORN or others.
There is so much to do.
Let us get started!
