Spring Reading Thing!

March 10, 2007

Whenever I get the chance I try to search around the worldwide web for new blogs that I might enjoy reading. There is a whole huge blogging world out there and it is kind of intimidating, but fun. I haven’t yet gotten too extremely involved in that world because I believe it can become quite time-consuming, and I already have a lot going on. But then I came across this:   A blogger named Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting a spring reading challenge, and this is just my kind of thing. So I am going to participate, and you are invited also! All you do is make a list of books that you want to read between March 21…

Spring Break 2007!

March 9, 2007

It’s Friday of the week of my spring break, and even though I really do need to spend most of my time today working on school assignments, this is the first day that I actually don’t have anywhere school or work related to be, and this fact causes me to rejoice. This is how I have celebrated: >I slept in until 10 a.m. This means that I got almost 12 hours of sleep! Wow! >I have not changed out of my oh-so-comfortable-and-cute shorts and shirt that I slept in. >I guess it goes without saying that I have not taken a shower, although I DID wash my face. But what doesn’t go without saying is that I have absolutely no…

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

March 6, 2007

Whenever I get to talking about school with anyone, one of the first questions they ask me is, “What kind of nurse do you want to be?” So I just want to go on record here and say that as of right now, the answer is “I don’t know.” But I can tell you that I have had some experiences lately that have me leaning in a way I never thought I would. Last week I had a patient who was 84 years old, hospitalized for a severe urinary tract infection that got into her blood. She was very confused and helpless. She could hardly do anything for herself. She was wearing diapers because she could no longer control her…

Music Anyone?

March 1, 2007

I got my Nickel Creek ticket in the mail today (which is not the point of this entry, although I am very excited about that) and along with it there was an advertisement for emusic.com saying that if I only sign up for a subscription I will get a 14-day free trial and 50 free downloads! Well, turns out that there’s only 25 free downloads, but I did it anyway. Reason being, I have realized that I am so out of it regarding new music lately, and I don’t want to be. So far I’ve only used up one of my free songs. Please give me suggestions! I have no idea what to pick! Leave me a comment with a…

The Consequences of Being a Nursing Student

February 27, 2007

I just wanted to keep you all up-to-date on my ongoing toenail saga that began way back in November. For those that are just tuning in, the week of Thanksgiving I was playing in an outdoor soccer game and my right toe encountered some kind of trauma that caused blood to pool up and dry underneath half of the toenail. This was painful for a day, but then it was just unsightly. It promised to be unsightly for another 6-8 months as well, until the toenail grew out. Then I was so proud of myself when I got a nice pedicure that successfully covered up nearly all traces of the blot. You can’t even tell! Well, anyway, things were going great like…
