A day in the life of an Intern

It's not too often that you have the fear put into you when you're at school but on the day that i was at the high school that i am interning at, i did. One of the teenage girls(she's 16) went into labor and came into the office complaining of pain. She took off for the bathroom before i could yell, "Wait" and i said to myself if she didn't come back in 2 minutes i was going in. Seriously, you read those stories about girls that have babies at school in the toliet and then go back to class. She did come back and i spent the next hour timing contractions and helping her breathe until her mom could come get her and take her to the hospital. They left, i was drenched in sweat, and told myself that if the counseling gig doesn't work out, maybe i could get a job as a midwive??? Who knows!!!!!!
