Do the size of my butt and gut count?  No?  Oh, alright, fine.  *stomps feet*

I need a better poker face.


No, not that kind of poker face.  I need to stop showing my emotions so easily.  Especially my disgust/annoyance/frustration.  Especially at work.  I roll my eyes.  I huff.  It's bad. 

Ok.  So every day, at 10am, I am forced to sit in discharge rounds with the nurses, nurse case managers, and residents to discuss every single patient on the floor.  The theory of these rounds is fantastic - to discuss every patient's current needs and to start their discharge planning.  On paper, it's a great idea.  In practice, however, they're a big freaking mess.  I won't go into specifics, but it gets really old.  Really quickly.  And that shows on my face.  And I know that people notice it.  And I don't like it.  I need to hide that better. 

But I do it in my personal life, too.  If something upsets me I noticeably react.  I used to be really good at just letting things roll off my back.  I don't know what changed or when it changed, but I am becoming very reactionary in my old age.  And I don't like it.  I need to hide that better, too. 

So that's what I hope to work on.  I need to harness my chi.

  1. You and me both. I remember about 2 years ago when I was working in the coffee shop I had a customer asking me some stupid questions. And she was being a little ridiculous. And before I could stop myself, I rolled my eyes. And she saw. It was SO embarrassing and she called me out on it. Ugh. I totally need a better poker face.
