Hi! I am a 19 year old nursing student, among many other things. But seeing as I am paying for that title, I might as well use it. Here on this blog are bits and pieces of my life that I would like to share with you. Hopefully it will be good times had by all. Leave me a comment, or email me if you wanna chat! (see link below)

I wasn't lying, people. Thursday, November 22, 2007 |

Eeep! My psych paper is due tomorrow!!! I couldnt let you down and not blog about my impending doom. The topic is: How should we discipline our children?
Im opening up the floor to you peeps and your insight, seeing as I have no children.
Kyle has been gone since Sunday to do electrical work 2 hours east of here. He was supposed to be coming back Friday night. Now, hes not coming back until Monday night! I am one disappointed girl. I miss that guy. On the plus side, hes been working 14 hour days and making tons of overtime. (Yay for Christmas right around the corner!)

How should we discipline our children? Lets hear it.

Homework....minus the work. Monday, November 19, 2007 |

If I go to a crappy province for the weekend and am sleep deprived, I still have to write a paper. If I go out for supper with my family, I still have to write a paper. If I take a nap and dream that my paper is done, I still have to WAKE UP AND WRITE MY FREAKIN' PAPER. I hate school. Why can't papers write themselves? And why does the nursing faculty feel the need to make the MOST useless assignments in the world? And torture their students? You know, seeing as we have to do this PBL junk (problem based learning, for all you non-nursing students out there) you'd think they'd let us choose the assignments we want. You know, projects we would actually learn from. Oh, the inconsistencies.
P.S. My paper is due Wednesday at 0900 hours. Hey, that leaves me like 36 hours! Procrastination time! Stay tuned for the Wednesday night edition of "Hey, I have a psych paper due on Friday! And I haven't started! Party on!

Such Great Heights Thursday, November 15, 2007 |

I am thinking it's a sign
that the freckles in our eyes
are mirror images
and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned.

And I have to speculate
that God Himself did make
us into corresponding shapes
like puzzle pieces from the clay.

And true it may seem like a stretch
but it's thoughts like this that catch
my troubled head when you're away
and when I am missing you to death.

And when you are out there on the road
for several weeks of shows
and when you scan the radio
I hope this song will guide you home.

they will see us waving from such great heights
"come down now" they'll say
but everything looks perfect from far away
"come down now" but we'll stay

I tried my best to leave
this all on your machine
but the persistent beat
it sounded thin upon the sending.

Tell me those lyrics aren't super cool.

Skinny Dipping Wednesday, November 14, 2007 |

Dipping for skins, you know? I searched high and low for a nice blog skin. And I swear, 99% of the blog skins I saw were made my angst-ridden emo-children, with titles like *~love.hurtz~* and *^~*WhYdOnTyOuLuVmE?*^~* and were laden with skulls and blood and broken hearts and other sad things of that nature. SOooo...I looked elsewhere and I came up with THIS! TA-DA! My new skin!! Im in love! It has buttons! And I felt all technical because I had to use an image hosting website and I had to copy and paste some stuff, and heck, Im an html pro now!
The skin: you likey???
1...2....3....lets hear it!

P.S. "Pull" the string!


Fried. Tuesday, November 13, 2007 |

My brain, that is.
Today I got to go to the OR (Operating Room) for a whole day! I saw a baby boy being born by c-section, I saw a little tyke get tubes put into his ears, I saw a laparoscopic tubal clipping! This means nothing to most of you but trust me, it is very cool. Maybe I will be an OR nurse one day. They are fabulous! (Shout out to the OR nurses! Holla!!)
Apparently my brain is more fried than I thought, because in approximately the 1.5349 minutes it took me to type up the paragraph about the OR, I forgot what I had originally wanted to blog about.
Today is one of those days I don't want to do ANYTHING. I want to call in sick to work, and then go home and not do my homework, and then skip class tomorrow because I didn't get my homework done. And then skip work tomorrow afternoon so I can finish the homework I didn't do. It really is a vicious cycle, people. Pity me.
ANNNNNDD in other news, group projects suck. Seriously, who ever in the history of time liked group projects? If you have participated in this dreadful activity, do you feel that it helped you to prepare for your career?

(somebody please, prove me wrong. give me some HOPE here!)

Im Baaaaack.... Monday, November 12, 2007 |

Hi. Im back.
I stopped posting because no one was reading. Or I thought no one was reading. Also, it was cutting into important facebook time. And homework time. And, well, Im just not as witty as those blogging queens I love to read. (Angella, Amanda, Christy, Heather, and others) BUT I have come to the conclusion that I like to post stuff, and talk about my life, and that maybe if one person reads it and knows better about what is going on in my life, that is cool.
So I may post occasionally.
Ta ta!
Besides, I need a hobby. All work and no play makes my life boring.
You think in 9 months blogger would have fixed the thing that makes me unable to post pictures. Grr.
