This is written in English comp 1 discussion response about Langston Hughes “Early Autumn”– I had had a busy day at work that day and the secretary while handing me the confetti to throw on the birthday patient we exchanged static electricity shock. These small shocks in life always make me stop and smile and think about that moment. Ever since youth I have like this due to mainly my brother used to always sneak up on me rubbing sock feet on the carpet and shock me in fun. So the shocks in my life make me smile 🙂
Through your perspective of this encounter I can see the childlike views of love. That people search constantly everyday wondering what brings us together and it is the moment we are in. What creates static is distance, time and looking to the past with regret. We forget about ourselves completely and focus on the one person not ever letting go completely. Continuing on in this pattern can create bitterness, resentment, aging, getting older and older. To stay youthful look at the present and be happy, let go of the past with no regrets. Now I am young and have no regrets of anything I can just play all day and have some fun happy with life and everything around me, I love myself, my life, my career, everything about me. I have no regrets. Everyone and anyone and every situation I have encountered from the moment I was alive until now is my past up until this very moment. I have no regrets for I clearly love myself :)))))I am forever young for I have no regrets. I love, I love, I love.
Very good Patricia:)
The hustle and bustle of everyday life can cause the rift to start creating the static. When you ever feel a shock of static electricity stop for a second and look at what is happening. Have fun and smile it is only the moment you are at that is frustrating not the future or the past just that moment. Shock now you are young again. The future and past just collided and bam its electric shock, just happy to be alive and who you are at that moment. 🙂
Bam electric shock I don’t want to come down I want to stay here forever young, no distance anywhere just the moment if it gets away searching can I find it or is everyone too busy? Sewing, cooking, doing their favorite things happy they are alive and ignoring me, no one wants to play with me, no one wants to teach me, no one wants to sing with me, no one wants to dance with me, no fun so I just sing on my own, dance on my own older , older here I come no regrets though this is kinda cool I am happy just being me, open the car door and BAM electric shock, in the moment the future and the past ………………etc……
I am older loving life this is fresh all new to me. I love myself because everything until this moment is me and I would not be here without it. BAM electric shock now I am singing happy birthday to my patient who turned older today or is she forever young????? Bam electric shock I sing with my co-workers on this busy day that was held up from the start with five machines down and going on overdrive. BAM electric shock it’s not just one patient but two patients’ birthday today:)
She’s forever young she’s smiling on a machine, loving life this moment everything she is from the past, I don’t question the love it’s there all around me in the air, if I get too busy BAM electric shock the future and the past meet at that moment all at once pure happiness that cannot escape. NO arguing no fighting happy at this moment no questioning it’s love in the moment no regrets no questions I am here at this moment 🙂
I did not realize until the next day that Patricia in this class that I wrote this to has worked at an elementary school kitchen for 19 years. She surely has witnessed children’s views on a daily basis for half her lifetime and the other half a child herself.
This day on my job all three backup machines in the back were down before opening the door to the lobby. I am always to have at the least 2 backups and one being worked on at the time to be a backup or it is against State regulations and against the law. So this was the beginning of the day so I went ahead and called and left message to the biotech. I opened the door and three more machines went down that are on the treatment floor each in a different section. I told the other two sections without downed machines to hold their last patient until more machines are fixed making these two machines my backup this way I am in compliance with regulations. I called my supervisor to let her know. So I could go on but this is something that happens and you work around it and go on. My supervisor called later thanking me. This is how being a professional matters more than what the coworkers that do not know the regulations comes in to play. My coworkers see it that I did not trust their judgment. The state can shut us down for not having enough machines for the day. One complaint to the state from anyone if I was to put all those patients on all those machines and no backups would shut down the clinic. It is considered endangerment.
It could be easily proven and an inspector write up for it later on if I was to do that. These machines have computers in them that tell if the machine passed test. They can just pull a report from the machines. The way that I handled this was to make it not a write up for the clinic by not starting three patients treatments on time. The patients did not mind I explained to them it was for their safety. My boss did not mind she called later and thanked me. My coworkers so unprofessional to not care as to report this to my boss as not trusting their judgment. Coworkers that do not know about these things.
I will not forget this day 6-5-2012 but I do not regret what I did. I did the clinic a favor no matter who comprehends.
