So...two weeks until I move to Toronto.
And this will be my home (away from home) for two months.
The name of the hospital is North York General. It is fairly large, and employs over one thousand nurses! I'll be on a general surgery floor (which is great - lots of skills!!) and moving in with my boyfriend, K., who is currently going to school at Osgoode Hall Law School.
This is my first time moving to a big city! I'm from Newfoundland, and even if I am in St. John's (the main city), the whole province feels like a small town. Every patient I have previously had asks me my last name, and who my parents are, and who my grandparents are, and quite often it turns out that they are my third cousin or we know each other somehow. And in a city with millions of people, this will definitley not happen.
This is also my first time moving in with my boyfriend. I hear that this can be difficult - but we've gone out for seven years, so I know him really well. He's my best friend and favorite person in the whole world.
