Moving in to Redding

Hello Everyone,

I was so proud that I passed my CNA test but more because I knew that I was going to get hired for a job that I was interested in getting also.
It is a CNA job for a long-term care facility and rehab called Marquis Shasta. More than that it meant I would have to move to northern California, in a city named Redding.
I was excited and full of wonderment at what would happen. Yet I felt like my whole life has been changing so much lately that sometimes I feel like I cannot handle these changes happening to me. 

I know that change is a great thing to experience, that I should learn to appreciate it, I am slowly little by little.

Journal Entry #1

Hello Everyone, 🙂

This coming week is going to be a big week for me because I will take my state certification test to become a Certified Nurse Assistant, I know that it’s another goal I have in order to get a job and support myself and my family independently.
I is funny of to think that just last year I would tell my twin sister that I was not interested in learning anything that was medical related, because it just never interested me until now.
Taking CNA classes and doing my internship hours at a long-term care facility has opened my eyes to how rewarding a CNA job can be because it means that I am helping people with disabilities and are in rehabilitation, get well and become independent once more.
Helping the senior residents everyday made me feel like I was making a huge difference in their lifes.
I hope and have faith that I will pass both the skills and the written test this coming Saturday. Everyone who reads this please wish me the best of luck, hopefully I do not get so nervous on the day of the test.

Your friend,

Jasmine
