People please stop commenting over every single act of mine saying “OMG… Being a social work student how can you do this”…

Being a social work student doesn’t make you a real social worker actually… Its just a platform where you could find the areas to work and its upto the individual and what really matters in Social work is not the mere degree but THE PASSION that’ll drive us ahead…

Serendipity

Part – I

It was a sun-drenched summer afternoon where the sunbeams are wrapping the whole city with its fiery temperature and manifestly passing its rays of heat violently on each part of her body. She was been sitting there for hours without any progress both physically and mentally. It was the building which is under construction that’s located next to her house. No sign of human was found in the construction site which braved her to move along the solitude place till the terrace for blow-dry her mind from things that had ended before her before an hour for which she was helpless.

It’s been so long she had been through this and an evil mind of hers started playing tricks over her by insisting her all the pessimistic effects of her life and forced her for a suicide attempt. On the other hand as natural her angelic mind bought back all the good old memories and pleaded her to stay alive. And alas! In a fraction of time no one can ever imagine it and there she was lying on the terrace of the building in the construction site fainted. Not sure how many hours she lay down there as such. At sunset the watchman who was checking over the building noticed her lying over there unmoving.

There she lay motionless. Her face was as pale as the white Lilly with few droplets of sweat over her face due to the struggle just like the morning dew that got settled over the petals of the flower. She had a slender forehead with strands of her hair falling over till her fluffy cheeks with two romantic eyes which would easily make anyone fall for her. Her rose-tinted skin texture made her look immensely beautiful even in her sick-bed.

She woke up hearing the sudden sound of the nurse’s whispering. She found that she was been hospitalized. A pair of blue uniformed nurse’s was chit-chatting sitting around the corner of the single bedded hospital room. The fierce smell of the medicines caught her nostril which wasn’t quiet pleasing to her breath and all of a sudden she started to trouble for breathing. Her entire body started trembling as if she was in to an electric shock.

The nurse’s rushed to the bed hearing the sudden and intense thud of her body and begun their first aids rapidly by placing the oxygen tube around her nostrils and checking the pulse rate on the other side. One of the nurses was treating her and the other hurried to inform the chief doctor about her sudden change. But unfortunately the chief doctor went for lunch and so the nurse went checking for the general practitioner who was on duty at that afternoon. Hearing the news he agreed and soon he was there in her room treating her unstable state and after an hour of struggle she was back to normal.

“Where are the patients relatives? Why come there isn’t anyone here?” asked Dr.Mittal.

“No one came looking for her since yesterday evening Doctor” said nurse Rejina.

Dr: “Then how come she was admitted here?”

Nurse: “An old lad admitted her saying that he doesn’t know who she is and found lying unconscious on the building he was guarding. He also said he would inform to the land owner and visit her today. But nobody turned up since then”

Dr: “My goodness. So if she is fall into a critical situation how can we make our next move without consulting her relatives? Call that person who admitted her immediately and inform him to meet me within evening. And continue her trips and let the oxygen tube be till morning as she suffers to breathe well.”

Nurse: “Okay Doctor Saab”

Excuses…

10 best excuses when you get caught falling asleep on your desk:

10. “They told me at the blood bank this might happen.”

9. “This is just a 15 minute power-nap like they raved about in
that time management course you sent me to.”

8. “Whew! Guess I left the top off the White-Out. You probably
got here just in time!”

7. “I wasn’t sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement
and envisioning a new paradigm.”

6. “I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance.”

5. “I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve
work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who
practice Yoga?”

4. “Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a
solution to our biggest problem.”

3. “The coffee machine is broken…”

2. “Someone must’ve put decaf in the wrong pot…”

And the #1 best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your
desk…

1. ” … in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
