The Reality of Being a CNA

Hello Everyone 🙂

I decided to share with you guys about my own experience of working as a CNA, and also to share with you the realities of being a Certified Nurse Assistant. I have heard that the job of being a CNA is undervalued because it is seemed as a job that can be frustrating to do, and honestly it is but it has it’s positives as well.

Being a CNA is a job that honestly requires a lot of patience and willingness to do such a job because you are basically with senior residents 24/7, it is like you are their main caregiver. Another reality about being a CNA is that the assigned residents you get for your shift are your responsibility during your shift to take care of, and trust me when I say that, it is honestly not an easy job to do because I had to learn how to manage my time wisely by seeing which of my assigned residents needed to take their showers, or who needed their vitals done for that day, or which residents are continent and incontinent, so it is a lot of responsibility that falls on you.

Another reality is you have to make sure that your residents are safe at all times, meaning that if a resident is a fall-risk then you as a CNA have to make sure that resident is safe in their wheelchair, or bed at all times during your scheduled shift; you cannot just leave them unattended since it can get you and your job into trouble if one of your residents is fall-risk and gets injured seriously.

While being a CNA can be stressful, frustrating, demanding, and a lot of responsibility, it also has it’s positive’s like I mentioned to you guys earlier in my post. One of them that I like as a CNA is knowing that I am making a resident feel safe and comfortable, and that their needs are met. Another positive that I like about being a CNA is getting positive compliments from the residents about how well I am doing my job in taking care of them, and also interacting with the residents makes my job more meaningful.

I personally never though or considered a job as a CNA before, but I needed to find a job that would help me support myself because I was tired on relying on my parents for anything that I needed, and also because I wanted to be financially independent; so I just decided to take a quick CNA course to get my CNA certification in order to get a job, and so I did and I got a job.

I am not planning on being a CNA for a long time though,  there are a lot of things I want to do in my life.  I am studying Creative Writing because it’s another love that I have. I want to create my own stories and share them with everyone else. I mostly want to write stories for Middle Grade,  and Young Adults. It’s tough growing up because you are trying to find your place in this world. 

Moon

The moon lights up the dark night sky. 

I look up from my bedroom window 

My brown eyes are filled with wonder and 

Enchantment at the luminous light that is 

The moon.

I don’t need chaos in this world, only the 

Beautiful moon to admire for it’s true beauty

Lights up the night sky for you and me.

It’s mystical eyes look down on me

As if the moon was my best friend, I smile

At the moonlight shining below me.

Yearning

My soul yearns to love you

A million times more than what

You want to give me. 

I love you more than you can imagine, 

More than the moon, the enchanting stars 

Above us, and the sun that warms me 

With a deep love for you. 

I only hope and pray that you

Truly see the yearning of love that I 

Feel for you. 

For now it is worth the risk to yearn for you 

My lover. 

Winter Magic

Winter magic fills me with endless joy, wonder, and imagination. 

I close my eyes and fill the smell of the chilly air with wishes of snow-covered houses. The warmth of my black and white checkered sweater fills me images of cozy warm fireplaces. The simple joy of drinking hot cocoa, making a gingerbread house with a loved one, or listening to Christmas music brings the genuine magic that I crave to bring me up from my gloom. 

Walking outside where it is raining, and cloudy I create in my mind the image of a place full of winter magic surrounding me. I may be feeling cold, but I will keep the images of winter magic to keep me warm, and joyful. 

A Haunted Dream

Princess Ariana woke up from a bad dream she has been dreaming of for a few days now.
It was a dream oddly real and vivid to her that she felt she was in it. So she decided to go tell her Father King Aranaus about her dream.
Ariana, the mermaid most highly admired by everyone for her rare gift of erasing evil and bad dreams seemed to somehow struggle with erasing this dream that has been bothering her.
“Father i have something i want to tell you.” She gazed at her Father worried at what he might say.
“What is it my dear?” He was busy in his room coming up with possible solutions on the extiction of dragon seahorses.
“Its an odd dream that has been happening to me for a few days. It scares me because it is so vivid and real that i have tried many times to shut it out and use my gift to destroy the dream, somehow i cannot. It keeps on coming to me strangely as if it keeps on haunting me during my sleep.
King Araneus looked alarmed upon hearing this from his own daughter

My Writing Goals

Hello Everyone, ☺

As an aspiring Writer, i know that i can tend to not honestly commit myself to maintain a daily writing schedule because of my busy schedule. But lately i have been thinking really deep on coming up with my own plan and goal of finding a way to not loose my way and stay focused everyday on improving and practicing my writing skills. It does not make sense for someone to say that they want to be the greatest writer ever, when in truth they have not taken the time to write, learn, and practice their writing skills.
honestly i want to learn as much as possible by reading alot, and meeting authors, and aspiring writers such as myself. I know that getting as much exposure will help me gain more knowledge in the world of writing.
My goal is to intern and later on get a job as an Editorial Assistant because i have come to realize that it would be another way for my writing to get noticed, and also gain exposure into the publishing business works, since i know that writers also have to know how stories get edited and published.
Writing is what i truly love to do, it is what i have been doing since i was twelve by expressing myself in journals. Writing helps me escape and create a whole new world and characters. Reading is also one of my greatest joys. Reading has helped me understand life better, has served as not only entertainment but also as comfort and purpose.
I do not want to loose track of what i have always loved doing as a hobby first because now i want to do it as a career.

Enchanted Love

You mark my heart
Leave me breathless,
full of wonders
Enchanting is your love
I never want to leave you,
There will never be anything
Tearing us apart.
You brighten up my dark days,
Help me see the positive things in life.
We stick like glue
Two hearts attached
Born to be with you.
Enchanting is your love
Never want to be away from you,
Always keep my heart on lock and key with anyone else, but you unlock my heart.
Enchanted love.

Diamond Girls

We’re lonely, miserable
Dreamers, dreaming our life away.
We dont care what others say.
We light up the sky like no one’s watching us.
We are diamonds
We’re diamond girls,
We shine brighter,
Let your light shine
Lets not hide our light,
Shoot those fears away.
For so long we have been hiding,
Been friends of the darkness,
Afraid to show ourselves,
Afraid of defeating our monsters.
We are diamonds
Diamond girls,
We’re born diamonds
Diamonds of the world.

Kiss away the Rain

Wednesday rain
Cold air seeps into my bones
Chilling me right to the core
Of my dreams, my hopes.
Thoughts race through my
Fragile mind
Confusing me on and on.
Then you came like the rain
Unexpectedly washing away
All my fears that drowned
My heart, my mind.
Spend enough time with you
Is all i want,
This rain is only separating us
On and on.
Dont leave me now,
Lets kiss away the rain far
Away from us.

Secretkeeper

Secrets kept inside
Secrets hidden in my
Precious mind.
No one knows me well
I am the secretkeeper,
The keeper of secrets
Once you tell me your
Secrets i will not tell a soul.
I will keep my secrets to the grave.
Some secrets are big, some are small.
Some i think twice before
Keeping them inside of me.
So dont be afraid,
Tell me your secrets,
I wont tell a soul.
The things you have done,
The things you have said,
The things you have kept away from anyone.
You can count on me.
Shhhh, dont tell a soul.
