A Slight Mix-Up

April 19, 2007

Remember how my brother’s name is David? And my boyfriend’s name is also David? And how that can be confusing to me at times? Take the following text message exchange as an example, which occurred just after I arrived home from spending the evening with Boyfriend. Me: I’m home…what a great day! And I got to finish it off with a little David lovin’–which is of course the best kind. :-) Brother: Oh god im not so sure i wanted to hear that Me: Hahaha that is hilarious that I sent that to you! I’m sure your lovin is great too, just not for me :-) Brother: HahaHaha you meant to send that to david f! Im glad your name…

How About A Little Discretion

April 17, 2007

I’ve been putting in some half-days at the cancer center where I worked for two years before starting nursing school. Sometimes, funny things happen there.

Don’t Forget to Remember.

April 7, 2007

As I have mentioned before, this semester in school has been hard on me. It has been extremely time-consuming and stressful. I hardly noticed when Lent began. I barely have time in the morning to read a Bible verse. I try to pray throughout the day, but let’s be honest. That doesn’t always work. Yet I didn’t want to just let Holy Week come and go like any other week, so I decided to find a church service to attend for Good Friday. I wanted something solemn, something traditional. I decided on an episcopal church, where they were performing the stations of the cross service. I went by myself, because sometimes I like doing things alone. And this was one…
