Since the month of March started, I chose to no longer work Sundays – mostly because two days off from work didn’t seem to be enough and also, it was the only day I really had to spend time with my family. Unfortunately, having Sundays off doesn’t really take into effect until the next week, funny isn’t it?
IV Therapy & Blood Withdrawal
I spent this weekend in an IV therapy and blood withdrawal course – I completed it today, and now I’m officially IV certified. Basically, I can start IVs and draw blood whenever I’m needed to on the spot. My next career step is to get my ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) and PALS (Pediatric Advance Life Support) certifications; although I’ll probably hold off on doing the latter because I don’t quite see myself choosing to be in the pediatrics department any time soon. That’s the beauty of the medical field – you’re almost always learning!
After being poked three times with the needle and getting certified, I decided to go on a date with myself. I headed to Creamistry, which happened to be right down from where I had my class. It’s basically just nitro ice cream.
First off, you pick a base. This will determine how your ice cream’s made – either premium (dairy), organic, coconut (for the vegans and vegetarians) or sorbet. Second, you pick the flavor. Third, you pick your toppings (it cost a dollar for every topping you wanted to add on). Then, these magical ice cream people make your ice cream for you!
Voila! I picked the premium base, Captain Crunch flavor and added mochi to it. Overall, it was pretty great but rather too sweet so I didn’t even finish the whole thing. It was a little pricey too – the size I got was $5.95 and a $1 for the toppings + tax. To be honest, I don’t really quite understand the fad over nitro ice cream; but hey, ice cream is ice cream.
And that’s how my Sunday went! How did you spend your Sunday?
