i want a word for the almost-home.
that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing

is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,

I’m so incredibly thankful to everyone who follows this blog! I started passport-life to stay motivated to travel because it’s so easy to get caught up in “life” that you actually forget to LIVE.
So to say thanks, this is the 1st of 3 giveaways I’m doing this summer! (One is a free flight to anywhere in the world, deets later!)
2 winners picked at random will receive this Citizen of the World luggage tag. The city names are in both English AND Spanish.

Yeah…. This is anyone in the medical field….. I’ve made some jokes that’ll probably send me to hell some day
I’ve never been able to explain it this well
Scrubs was more than a comedy. It made me feel better bout most things.
But this scene. Spoke such a truth. We can’t sit w the family talking about the pt most times. We have to get back in service to treat a frequent flyer or another bad call. No matter what the case is
we joke about a special nurse-hell for the things we say. but yeah, this…
