Hey nutang, it has been a pretty long time since I updated you guys on my life. I know I disappear on this blog here and there, but I promise I am forever faithful to you guys, scouts honor!
I haven't blogged in so long, I feel like I forgot how to lol. Man, where do I start?
So many of you do not know this, but I finally graduated nursing school, and have my license as a registered nurse. I now have an awesome job at a local hospital, working for the float pool :). If you guys don't know what that is, it basically means I will be working on every unit of the hospital whenever they need me. I love this opportunity because I will be able to see how every unit works, and then apply for a position that I want whenever a spot opens up. For training though, my boss has us newbies orient three-five weeks in each unit, depending on the patient acuity and workload.
I love my job because I am orienting to postpartum: where I take care of moms that just delivered their newborn babies. I know most people thing newborns look like aliens, (and they do), but I find them extremely cute! I used to find newborns pretty weird looking, but there has not been one newborn in the hospital that I have found ugly. However, that may just be due to me being so passionate and excited to have a nursing job that the stars in my eyes get in the way of seeing the newborn's actual face. It could be more than that though; like how I feel absolutely heroic when I hear a piercing cry coming from a crib from afar. I rush over and hold this cone-shaped headed baby to save it from feeling cold and lonely. When I heard angelic silence, and hold this warm child, I know I have done my job of saving another victim from sadness. Many tell me that I have a motherly nature to myself, but maybe it's just a savior complex...
Anyways, other than work, my life consists of praying for my paycheck to come in, driving my new car around while making sure I don't crash into things (because I suck at driving), and spending time with friends and family. I am no longer in a relationship, but he still is my absolute best friend (ahem, that will probably be talked about in another blog). He now joined nutang! randomrhetoric (link in my module) is an awesome blogger, and I am sure his eloquence will sweep all of you off of your computer chairs :). I'm now dating here and there as well, which is something I am not used to at all. It has been fun so far, to be very honest. But let's be real, I am not the type to be good at dating around at all. I have no game what so ever. Oh well, we'll see how this goes for me. I may quit if it gets too exhausting :P.
So that is my life. I felt that I needed to update you all on everything that has been going on for any of you to understand my blogs that are coming up. I have a feeling I'll be around nutang a lot again :). Let's hope that's true!

Last Semester of Nursing School.
Saturday. 2.22.14 10:35 pm
This is it guys, my last semester in college. I am graduating in May, and it is absolutely surreal.
I have been in school since I was five years old. FIVE. 18 years of my life, I have devoted my time to going to class, doing homework, studying, and procrastinating. It's crazy to think that I will be in the working world a year or less from now (God willing). I won't be worrying about a test, my grades, my gpa, or anything related to school for a while. I will be working as a registered nurse for a couple of years before I go back to grad school for my MSN. I have to say though, that I am absolutely terrified. There is so much I have to do before I graduate and so much I have to do after I graduate! Four major tests, six minor tests, two major papers, ten minor papers, and a 90-hour preceptorship left before graduation. A whole bunch of studying will occur after graduation to take my NCLEX. OMG, I AM GOING TO TAKE MY NCLEX.
I have been partially freaking out over graduation each day since this semester started, but I am absolutely freaking out now because I drank two cups of coffee, and am in the middle of this case study that I have spent four hours on researching the pathophysiology of basal ganglia hemorrhages (with nothing written out yet...). I really need to understand this just so I can write it out.
So I need to breathe a little bit, drink water to flush out this burst of energy, and then get back to my paper. But...I think this blog helped a lot :).
Back to EVIL!!!!
....I mean, my case study.
