Everything’s happening so fast

Hi everyone!

– And sorry for being so out of touch with the blog, but life got in the way..

Right now is the first time in ages that I have a moment to spare, to sit down, be bored, watch a movie, write my blog and so on. The only thing I have been persistent in updating, is my Instagram! So do take a look, there is a lot of new pictures!

Right now I am relaxing, drinking Cuba watermelon mixed with Carlsberg sport (pop basically) – It’s gorgeous, you guys got to try it if you haven’t! It’s so hot outside, it’s finally spring in Denmark, so I thought it was the perfect drink for the evening – not that I drink a lot, but today just called for it! But while I’m drinking this, I am watching a movie on netflix called ”Safe Haven”, a really good movie I might add, watch it sometime, but I gotta warn ya, its a ”girly movie” as my fiancĂ© would put it. 😉


Tomorrow we are spending time with my family, firing up the grill and having some steaks and sausages, yum! I can’t wait, it’s gonna be awesome! 😛

I am happier than ever in life, I love my fiancĂ© and every day, he makes me happy that I’m with him. It’s corny, but I even love cooking for him. I love spoiling him, making him lunches for work, just anything that makes his life a little easier, and why? Because I love him, just because I simply love him. He makes me smile, laugh and just stronger. I would never have dared starting my education as a Care Assistant if it wasn’t for him. He made me who I am in a way, he patched up a part of me that I had no idea was broken. He have been struggling real hard to find a job here in Denmark, not just any job, but a job as a tiler, and he found it! He is now working as a tiler in a small company and have made some great friends too, that just makes me so happy, I’m insanely proud of him!



Life is just so insanely exciting as a Care Assistant intern. I have tried a lot of things, that even some educated Care Assistants haven’t – or so they told me! 😉

I gave B12 intramuscularly – which means ”injection into the muscle”, that was probably the most intense injection I’ve tried so far! 😼 The needle is huge, or so it seems the first time you give the injection, I was calm on the outside, but inside I was shaking a little.. It went perfectly fine, no bleeding or anything and it went into the muscle perfectly, so I was happy and so was the patient! 😀

I have dealt a lot with insulin injections, their fairly easy, and so is the blood sugar measurements, but their a lot of fun, and its a whole new chapter that’s opening up for me, having to study about it and get into the whole ”fast working insulin and slow working insulin”, it’s so exciting!

I have worked with catheter’s too, observing them, inserting them, rinsing them, changing them and so on. That’s pretty cool too, even tho’ inserting them can be a challenge! No ones alike down there, just sayin’ 😀 haha!

Then I have tried to change an Ostomy, which can be really tricky and also messy, but luckily it weren’t – that time! 😛


I have probably done a lot more, but I have honestly forgotten, because I have been allowed to do so many new things, and I love the fact that I have! I have the best mentor, I can only ever say good things about her, I have to be at this place for 6 months, and I’m not wanting to leave the place at all! ❀ Even tho its way out at the country side, where there is farms and files n’ miles of fields! But it’s just beautiful..

So as you all can read, everything seems to just be working out for us (me and my fiancĂ©), we have struggled a bit, but that’s over now, I can’t wait for the summer vacation, having his kids over, just like last year, I miss them very much. ❀

I hope you guys had as good a day as I have, I couldn’t have hoped for a better day, it was very busy, with a hairdressers appointment, grocery shopping, dog sitting, washing clothes and snapping pictures, but I loved today, every second of it!

See you online! x

Education and internship 

This is my education center on the inside!

This is my education center on the outside!

This is my new education, at the introduction course, I went to a school located inside the city, it took about an hour to get there, way way inconvenient to get to and honestly.. I was lucky to get to this school instead, and also to get an internship in the town just next to mine. 
Tomorrow I start my internship and I can’t explain how excited I am, I can’t wait to get started and to learn a lot of new things. In my line of work, you can always learn new things, there’s constantly something that changes and health care can always evolve and I find that pretty amazing! 

I love what I do, and that’s why I’m taking this education, I’m so lucky that I found my way in the jungle of careers out there, now it’s just to keep on the path towards becoming a care helper, and see what the future holds!

I hope you all have had some amazing vacations this summer, see you online! x 

My exam and my results

I have been biting my nails for two weeks straight, it has been a battle and I have had so much stress these past weeks that I can’t even begin to explain it, but its been all worth it!

Exam-Word-Map-flatAt the 20th of June I went to draw my exam case in science. Basically, what we did, was go and pick between 6 cases, I picked for us, cause we were so nervous and I just snatched the first and best exam case there was! Number two, my lucky number!

We got the case, sat down, opened it, read it up, found out what subjects to weigh highest and then we went home, we had 24 hours to write and research and use our textbooks, I wrote a lot of Que cards and had with me.

 

Basically the subjects I had chosen to weigh highest was:

  • Enzymes in the body, how it works and what protein, fat and carbs gets broken down to.
  • Enzymes in the dishwashing soap and how it works on a theoretical level.
  • Enzymes in  washing powder and how it works on a theoretical level.
  • Different types of bacteria, where they thrive, what kills them and how to prevent being infected with the different types of bacteria.
  • Atoms, covalent bindings, ion bindings and what the octet rule and the doublet rule is, and how to calculate how many neutrons there is in an atom.
  • Fluid calculations and also extra fluid calculation when you have a fever and a calculation for what fluids she should drink if her BMI was on a healthy normal scale.
  • BMI calculation and why elderly is better off having a higher BMI, then a BMI calculation of what type of BMI the citizen should have had.
  • Mold and why it’s so dangerous, how it thrives and what you can do to prevent it.
  • Nutrition and protein drinks, how protein binds fat in your body and why a Y-plate is such a good choice.
  • A carbs, protein and fat calculation, how much should a citizen eat if they had to gain weight or keep their weight.

That was basically what I went in and talked about!

I went in the examination room the 21st of June and scored an A+ on the English grade scale / 12 on the Danish grade scale, I was so nervous, but the examination went beyond what I had ever dreamt of. This was defiantly the exam i dreaded the most, but I did it! The censor told me that I was a star, that was something completely new, I teared up and I couldn’t help but cry – happy tears of course! I have never been praised so much in my entire life, he was the best censor I have ever had. I will never forget the praise he gave me, I will take it with me in my further education and I will be calmer, tell myself that I can do this and that I am clever, that I can do calculations

Thursday the 30th of June, I went and had my last exam, this was a ”pass or not pass” grade we got, we had half a week to make a case, based on the subjects that was in the book, it was our ”basic course” that we had to pass, everyone needed to pass this, only a few had to do the science exam, because others had a different education background and had this previously in their education.

I went in the 30th as the second student, and I talked way too long, but was told by the censor, that she hoped I went all the way, and that I took my nurse’s assistant education too, but I want the nurse too, so I have quite a long way to go still, but I’m proud and relived that I got so amazing grades!

For the first time ever, I feel confident that this education and this line of work is just right! I have chosen the right path.

Everyone out there working hard on their exams right now, so much good luck to you! I know how the anticipation nervousness and butterflies feel like! You can do it!

See you guys online! x

Exam preps

I have thought a lot about this post, also because its been a while since I last posted something on my blog, I have missed writing a lot to be honest and I finally thought of the right post to write, so all of my followers knows why I am a bit quiet on my blog and maybe a little stressed – but in a good and healthy way none the less!

I have been in school the last couple of months, I have had an introduction course to the caregiver education and I have been studying like mad and enjoying life and all its ups and downs. I have not had many downs though, I have worked very hard and I have fewer weekends to myself and my fiancé than I used to have in the beginning of the education course.

I have started working as an uneducated carer at the elderlyhome I was an intern at, I work the weekends that’s available and sometimes its many, sometimes none, it always seems to change and that’s just fine with me. I have been on whats called ”SU” – education benefits in a more simple term I guess you can call it, that’s something we are very lucky to receive here in Denmark, but its a very slim pay, with hardly any money to spend on anything but rent, so I took this job due to finances, but also because I want to keep in touch with the very first place I worked and I have loved that very much.

So I am working during most weekends, at least once a day every weekend, sometimes the entire weekend, that is very giving but also hard, cause of the very little free time I get for myself. This weekend I have two morning shifts, that will be my entire weekend gone, but its okay, I know a lot of people work a lot harder than me and I feel blessed because I have this job to rely on, while I study, it has been a lifesaver and my boss was an angel to give me this opportunity.

All of May have been a real struggle to find an internship. Due to the new education reform, we now have to find our own internships, instead of just getting them appointed to us, they said in mid May on the radio (Danish radio), that it’s very few that get an internship nowadays as a carer or as an assistant nurse. Let me tell you guys, its been a real struggle.. Hard work and a lot of stress have been built up in the month of May, having to focus on education and paying attention to what the teachers taught us, while also having to go to interviews and writing applications for internships – that’s been horrible! But in the end, all my hard work has payed off, I was cheeky and called up a kommune and asked if they could help me and get me an interview, it worked! I had an interview with them, and after about two week I got an internship with them, at a care home close to where I live and after August I no longer have to stress about how many shifts I get at work in the weekends, cause I will get adult internship salary, something that not many have been given, even though we thought that we were all eligible for that. It is a complicated and impossible system, but I thought you just had to be 25 or more to receive adult salary, but unfortunately not. I do not have the answer to this even now, I just know I was one of the few with enough work experience and the proper age. I do think a lot about what this means to my classmates, but I also know that their going to be amazing at being caregivers and together we can help support our elders and disabled.

I have gotten a lot of friends and acquaintances at this education, it has been an amazing experience for me and I would do it all over again, I feel a lot more confident than I did when I first started and now I got some amazing tools to take with me to use during my internship.

The exams are creeping up, next month – July to be exact. I need to have my exam in this main course, so it’s just a regular main exam and then another one in biology / science, which we in Denmark call ”Nature subject”, I’m mostly nervous about the last exam mentioned, cause that is some information you need to remember by heart, to me that is hard. Math has never been my strong side and there is a bit of math in this subject too – but it all comes down to what stuff you get about at the exam and that is something you draw the day before, so you will in total have 24 hours at each exam. I will just do my best, cause that’s all I can do really.

I hope for the very best outcome for all my classmates, cause they have all showed such interest and passion for this education, they all deserve to pass with honors. We need carers that love what they do, just like my classmates do every day, when we have discussions about ethics, moral and dilemmas. We have had some amazing cases that we have worked on and that we have had to discuss in class. In our line of work, we get met by a lot of choices and dilemmas, where our morals will be tested, so far I think everyone have passed with flying colours.

So to wrap it up, good luck to my classmates, to the ones out there reading this post, thats also studying for exams and for the ones looking for internships, you can do it!

With love, Miamariah! x

The beauty talk, Truth or Dare!

Truth or dare?

Well this is a subject that I have thought about a lot, and I pick truth, cause I dare to be honest. You guys don’t know how my pictures have been taken, or what I do to them or if I even do anything to them! You have no clue, and I will show you some of my pictures and explain some things along the way, cause today, the subject ”beauty” is very often mentioned, and it is something that every girl thinks a lot about. -Thats a damn shame girls, you are perfect, in every way! Life is too short to be insecure and worried about how you look, you need to live it and enjoy it!

I am an educated multimedia designer, and I know how to work Photoshop, and if I feel like it, I do that! I find it fun, I enjoy editing a picture, and looking at the outcome, learning something new and exiting. I, like every girl, want to feel beautiful, but that is not easy today, everyone is so worried about how they look, they forget to just appreciate what they already have!

Picture no. 1: I have really long hair right here! You know what? It’s clip on hair girls! A little picture editing in the form of lighting, but no retouch here, I did not really need to touch this pic up, but clip on extensions right here, and I bought them on Amazon.com, easy! But again, beauty is something that comes from the inside..

Picture no. 2: This is made in Instagram, the lighting is bright, and it pretty much makes your face ”perfect”, I used a straightening iron, and some hair powder, to make my hait look thicker and carefully applied make-up.. But everyone can apply pretty make-up girls, you are perfect in how you are, on the inside, not in the reflection in the mirror.

Picture no. 3: My final one and actually my favorite edit, see my eyes? My eyes are purely edited, in reality their a very dark green, with brown specks in them, not golden brown at all! I retouched the ”lines” under my eyes too, Photoshop is amazing! Do you look a tiny bit tired? Oh well, retouch it away! – And do you feel like you look fat on that picture you just took? Don’t worry, you can shade the picture! Look at my chest and neck, all the shadings, are all edited. This picture went through major work, the one of few I really did a number on, but I don’t really mind, I find it fun and interesting to edit pictures, but sometimes I do wonder, if I send out the wrong impression to everyone reading my blog.

 

Looks is not all, looks can lie, be changed or Photoshopped! I think its sad, that so many girls get their body altered and feel ugly, cause there is a reason we are different, cause looking alike would be damn boring.. Every single one of you are beautiful, we just gotta accept the little flaws we have and love ourselves for them, cause life is not perfect, it is full of imperfections, and I too, am also imperfect! -In my own perfect way!

 

Love you guys, take care!

Dad, this is for you

Thank you dad

You have been my rock, for so many years, been my biggest fan and my best friend for decades now.. Even tho I have failed, and wronged you, and been angry without no reason, or just a pure pill – as a teenage girl can be, I have always loved you, I hope you know that.

I feel that I can tell you anything, and your honest towards me, never mean, always kind, and trusting. Your the best dad a girl could ever wish for, and now at the age of 25 summers, I finally see the effort you put into raising me, and how much you really loved me, even tho I have been difficult, and pestering you much of the time.

Your my hero you know, one I will strive to be as, if I ever have kids myself. Your hard working, clever, always in a great mood and you never try to be anyone else but yourself – if people don’t like you, its their loss, never yours, and you don’t even bat an eye at it. Your a confident person, with a job you worked very hard for, which you have kept for half a lifetime, a role model I am proud to look up to, and I will never stop looking up to you dad.

You fought for me, and you never really got a thank you, but now you have, cause I do know how much effort you have put into making my life full of happiness and support. You do not choose your parents, but if anyone asked me, I would have chosen exactly the same. You and mom have had a great impact on how I turned out, and I am proud to call you guys my parents. I am a better person because of you.

Eksamens rapporten

(This is again a danish blog for my exam)

Jeg har nu fÄet sat det mest vigtige op i min rapport. Jeg har vedlagt et par smÄting ogsÄ, og nogle forskellige modeller som jeg syntes der manglede. Jeg er nu nÄet til markedsfÞrings strategi, og er snart ved vejs ende med rapport skrivningen. Det er lidt underligt at jeg snart er ved at vÊre fÊrdig.

Der er udarbejdet to fĂŠrdige produkter til eksamen, og efter det sidste af min rapport er blevet fĂŠrdig, skal der udarbejdes en Facebook side, som reklamerer med firmaet og dets produkter.

Jeg har fÄet lavet en model mere at ligge ind i min rapport, for jeg syntes den var meget vÊsentlig at have med, nu nÄr jeg gerne vil gÄ i dybden med min rapport.

konkurrencetrekanten

Jeg har brugt konkurrence trekanten til at differentiere mig fra de andre firmaer som er pÄ markedet, og understreger med denne model, hvordan det ser ud for det fremtidige firma. Dette er en ret nyttig model, da man kan se hvilken nytte man gÞr kunden.
