I would just like to feel the "Christmas Spirit" again! I hate that my heart has grown so crusty I can't adequately celebrate my Savior's birth.

I have fallen short on spending enough time with my family and friends, and I miss my loved ones that have gone on, that each made Christmastime so AWESOME!

If I could just feel the magic again, maybe I could pull it back together again for our next generation.

My prayers and thoughts go out to each of you who have lost love ones, and I hope peace, joy, and love surround you this holiday season:)!!

A job. Yes I'm a new grad. I've just been so discouraged and stressed I haven't even been able to enjoy the Christmas season and I love this time of year. I'm honestly not looking forward to church or presents or family time. I just want a job and to validate this degree and license.

I wish I had a winning multi-million dollar lottery ticket.

I also wish for good health, prosperity, stability, financial security, and emotional maturity for myself and everyone in my life.

Furthermore, I wish for world peace and a swift end to hunger, abject poverty, and human suffering.

The strength to keep on going. I want my parents to stay in the best health possible and be happy.The strength and energy to keep on providing great care to patients. I want my daughter to be happy and always have someone around that loves her. I pray that the new tax hikes will not impact us too much and to figure out how we will manage with less money in our pockets...worried about that!

A day shift. ......A day shift is all I ask.

My wish is that 8-12 nurses would be hired for our unit. Not going to happen, but it would be such a blessing.

I wish for a relatively peaceful day during my Christmas day shift.

The preceptorship I want at the hospital I want...and some extra $$ would always be nice, but I won't push my luck with Santa.

Decent paying jobs for us old stale grads with little acute care experience who would love to orient use so we can make a difference. I keep wishing....

I wish for contentment in life, regardless of the conditions. :)

I wish for the gift of confidence and competence as a new ER nurse. I have grown a lot but I have a ways to go. I have barely 5 more weeks of orientation so the pressure to shape up is high.If that's not feasible, then I wish for the entire Beatles catalog, in CD and vinyl. I don't have a vinyl player, but I'll get one.

...also, I could really use a leathered out, wood-grained out, V12 Jaguar- Red. If you want to throw in a Scandinavian 21 year old model- I would sure be grateful!!

Tag would like a new stuffed animal that will last more than one good tug-o-war.

P.S. cookies and milk in the foyer.

Love Boston:)

I love being a nurse so if they tire me who cares really. I mean we should be grateful for jobs because some people dont have the knowledge or skills to obtain one.

A JOB ! Ive been looking for 6 months.....and if i dont get one soon, it'll just be like the last 24 yrs I worked at my last job were meaningless. Unemployment ends in 3 weeks, so I might be out on the streets soon.......so sad to think that someone with all my years/experience cant find a job these days. I wish all the new grads tons of luck....maybe yours will be better than mine. Merry Christmas ! Oh, and I wish for a calm and peaceful and uneventful ( except for a job offer! ) rest of 2012. :
