2008 Year in Review


Well, seeing as this is going to be the last post for me in the year 2008, I thought I might try and do it a little different. This is not going to be just a story or advice column. No, this time I thought I would try and have a little fun. I’m out on the net often and do a fair amount of “research” and so forth, and I’ve noticed that now is the time where you’ll see a ton of “Top 10” lists, “Best of’s” and various other yearly measurements. So I thought I would try my h and at doing the same… Let’s see, how about the: Top 10 Things I’m Thankful for in 2008

10. The Dark Knight & Iron Man. The most fun I’ve had at a movie in a long time!
9. My 1987 VW Jetta – Don’t fail me now!
8. Manchester United winning the Premier League, European Cup and Club World Cup. Best soccer team in the world!
7. My friend Mike making into the WK12. He’s going to go places!
6. Finishing my first ever video “production” (Restless Nurse Syndrome). Don’t worry, there will be more?
5. My job. With the state of the economy and such… I am thankful to be in the place I am with this great company.
4. Meeting that someone special.
3. Seeing my Aunt Kaethe… One last time.
2. All my friends and fam. Kind of had to mention them.
1. Buying my first house! Never saw it coming, but now I can’t imagine life without it.

So there, I did it! Please share with me what you’re thankful for this year or whatever kind of list you want to come up with. I’d love to see what you come up with! I do hope you have something to share and if you don’t, well you might be suffering from what some may say as the doldrums. This may be especially apparent in your job as a traveling nurse, but don’t worry, there are ways to make it better. Here’s a great little article I found on how to get yourself out of that rut. Are you feeling stuck?

Well, that’s all I have for you in 2008. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading through the year. Come back and read us again in 2009! From all of us at and Medical Solutions… Have a safe and joyful New Year’s!

About the Author:

Patrick Fuerstenau here. Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me. Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager! And I love writing about travel nursing.
