I still cannot believe that I am done with my very last rotation! This past Friday, 21 years of education had come down to an end. From now on, every thing I do in the name of pharmacy will be paid! This sounds a little bitter, but after paying to work the lack of reward and the plethora of punish really gets to me.
Originally, I was supposed to be assigned to do hospital administration. After a few hiccups, I decided to do a second community rotation at the store where I normally work. I just found it so ironic, because when I was first choosing my rotations around this time last year, I refused to work in a normal community pharmacy because i did not want to do my job for free.
After I got off my high horse and received an offer from my company, I really thought about what would be the best for me and the best for my future store. Off to working 6 days a week!
I really did learn a lot about myself, and got a taste of what the rest of my life would hold. After a week or two, one of the pharmacists said to me, “Kathy, I feel like you’re here all the time…welcome to the club”.
And that is what it’s like to spend your life in pharmacy. I did it!
