I finished my last final this morning. I celebrated this evening by eating almost a whole tub of chicken fried rice and a pint of ice cream while I watched the DVRed episodes of Gilmore Girls and House. It was glorious. I have two weeks with no school, but I already have 11 things on my “To Do Over The Break” list, not to mention the fact that I agreed to work almost every day I can. Ah, well. 0 Like

Weekend Trip to Lubbock

April 30, 2007

Well, it was a quick trip but I’d say it was definitely worth it. We left at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning. I was sitting in the back seat. I pretty much slept for the first few hours. I meant to only sleep until it got light enough outside to study, but it’s just very hard for me to stay awake in the car. Eventually I got my textbook out and started to read. Then after a short while of that, I began to have a strange sensation that can only be described as car-sickness. I was in denial at first, but when my mom finally insisted that I take the front seat I did not say no. Shotgun was…

What The Coming Week Holds For Me

April 26, 2007

I can see the light…at this time next week I will be finished with my second semester of nursing school, one that has been quite difficult. Today I am studying for my pathophysiology exam. I also got a bunch of other stuff done, like filling out my FAFSA and my tax amendment form. By the way, ladies and gentlemen, do yourself a favor and remember to make copies of all the forms you send in to the IRS. I have done so every year except this year, and this is the year that I found an additional W-2 after I had already sent my forms in. I was quite annoyed with myself. Tomorrow I will take the patho exam and…

The Nickel Creek Concert: One Less Thing To Do Before I Die

April 24, 2007

I will admit, I haven’t been to a ton of concerts in my life, but I’ve been to some. And seeing Nickel Creek live last Friday, something that I have been wanting to do for years, was the best live music experience I have ever had in the quarter century that I have walked this earth. First of all, the band graciously requested a no-smoking policy at the club they performed in. That was wonderful. And thanks to some friends of mine who got there REALLY early and let us stand in line with them, we got to stand on the FRONT ROW. Which, as Lauren said, is the only way that counts. This band is raw talent. And they’re…

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…
