Purple! on We Heart It.
It’s weird how much I like pharmacy. I wouldn’t have thought that I’d ever find something that I don’t mind doing, but when you realize that you don’t actually mind going to work, and spending your time there, it’s an oddly pleasant feeling.
I didn’t go into pharmacy originally because I liked it. I think someone mentioned it during quantatative analysis and said they make a lot of money, so I was like okay I guess I’ll choose that as my college major when I apply. So I did. And now that I’m doing inpatient pharmacy, even though I’m just a tech and the work isn’t exactly the same as what the pharmacists do, I like being in a pharmacy environment. Or rather a hospital environment. Maybe I’m also a little biased because I’ve been lucky enough to work with awesome people in both outpatient and inpatient. But even my classes interest me a lot. I thought pharmacology was the coolest thing ever because it finally combined everything we’ve been learning about. And despite the fact that med chem is super hard, it’s so fascinating.
It’s hard, but to tell you the truth - I really don’t mind. It’s also comforting to know that once you graduate you’ll almost definitely find a job. In fact, I’m relatively sure that if I kept working at the hospital where I work now, and stayed on per diem and worked weekends or whatever there, I am relatively sure I’d probably be offered a job after I graduate - even though it might be a little limiting if I decide I don’t want to work there anymore. Most students probably would have to do a residency or would decide to do one. I mean, I might decide to do one too since I want to do ambulatory care. But the point is: it’s nice to have the possibility to be able to choose between two good opportunities.
And once you’re a pharmacist, it’s such a nice lifestyle to be in. For example, my hospital is small, the workload isn’t terribly difficult, and yet all the pharmacists live very comfortable lifestyles. They have the opportunities to go out, and have money to do interesting things/go interesting places. One of the pharmacists I work with has seriously gone to Egypt, Turkey, Cambodia, Thailand, South Korea, India, South Africa - all these fascinating countries that I would love to some day see and experience.
I feel as though it’s a nice combination between interesting, challenging, and rewarding. But it’s an even nicer feeling simply knowing that I’m actually sort of passionate, or simply into something. I never thought that would happen.
