I like this job so much. It’s really hard. I mean, REALLY hard. I
have to think a ton! I have to really be aware of what I’m doing, and

So far, my mistakes have been pretty minor, and usually just require ME

I don’t mind. They are huge about understanding that mistakes will be
made. I am so thankful for them… every single person I work with.
I’ll let them know, too. Buy donuts and a card, or something. Medical type people… we love that stuff.
Things are so good right now. So so good.
