So there’s a reason why “Flying trapeze” is not listed as a career option on the aptitude tests we took in high school. That reason? Because it’s so goddamn awesome that I would have joined the circus instead of going to college (twice) had it shown up on my results. The flying trapeze kicks nursing school’s ass.
And despite my motion sickness and fear of heights, I believe I would have been a great trapeze artist.
I celebrated the end of clinicals by “flying” for the first time today, and I think it’s going to be my new tradition.
