Blog Updates

I know…I haven’t been posting much lately. There are a few reasons for that, and they’re:

  1. School is very busy with regular classes and exams in addition to KAPLAN exams, final exams, papers, etc.
  2. My passion for it has decreased. When I first started blogging, I was younger, fresh out of undergrad, and single. Now I’m older, married, in nursing school, and I’m seeing life from a different perspective. Things have defiantly changed. I’m at a point right now where I’m working on things, and blogging isn’t included.

I’m not saying I will forever stop blogging because I do enjoy it, but it will come to a halt for now. Until I get back into blogging on the regular, here is a recap of what’s going on:

Marriage: With anniversary #2 coming up, I feel as though we’ve grown a lot, and our marriage seems to get stronger and stronger with each year. We have our travel plans ready for our anniversary getaway trip, and I’m so excited! It’s going to be very relaxing, peaceful, romantic, and of course, fun!! We’re also training for another half-marathon. We haven’t done one of those since 2012, and it’s time for another. This one will also be in California, and I’m looking forward to it. I love training with my husband because we’re both very competitive with each other but in a good way. It brings out the best in the both of us.

School: At this point, I just want things to hurry up and move on so that I can graduate and start doing what I really want to do…NURSING!!! Besides that, I feel really good about going into my final exams because I’ve been doing well this semester. The only things I loathe are the many exams that we have to take this semester. I swear nursing instructors and the administrators just want to put so much pressure on us. Trust me, I understand the need know what you’re doing because nursing encompasses the care of someone’s life. That’s a BIG DEAL. However, don’t try to take my life via stress before I have the opportunity to take care of someone else’s life. I finally got my 4.0 though :).  I think that is enough reason to have a spa day at Miraval–One of the best resort & spa in the nation (It’s also the best wellness spa in the nation…top notch).

Life: Overall, its good. Although nursing school is hard, I enjoy playing hard just as much. Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time with my friends. It’s always a pleasure to be around people who you enjoy. Hubby and I have been invited to attend a group date night with some other couples, and I’m looking forward to it. One of the places that we’re going to is one of those places where you paint and drink wine (and we all know wine makes everything better). I’ve wanted to go to one of these for a long time. Hubby and I tried to go to Sip n Strokes in Atlanta while visiting, but they took our money, cancelled the event, and didn’t give us our money back. It was such a rip off. Hubby and I have many plans to travel, and that is really great because I’ve always wanted to travel more. We have London at the end of the year, and Hawaii or Fiji early next year (I’m voting for Fiji, but we shall see). Life is good.

Fabulous Friday

I don’t have a list of items because truthfully, I’ve been too busy to notice anything unrelated to school. Due to Spring Break, I had a test, quiz, and a project due in my pediatric nursing class, in addition to a plethora of papers due in my other class…AND a ten our clinical on the pediatric unit (I worked with the cutest baby. I wanted to bring him home with me so badly). This test was no joke because it covered pain, fluid imbalance, respiratory, GI,GU, viral/bacterial/fungal skin conditions, immunizations, and psychosocial development of the infant/toddler/preschooler/school-aged child/and adolescent. While studying, I had many moments where I slammed my book shut because everything was looking like a big blur.

Well, not only did I ace my peds test, but I also made the highest grade in the class (97.5%). In addition to that, the teacher said I made the highest grade on that test ever.

Additionally, I made a 100% on my quiz and a 100% on my global health project (yes, we had a quiz and a project due on the same day as a test…my instructor is no joke).

I’M IN BEAST MODE!!!! I think I hear Sigma Theta Tau calling my name. I’d love that though :-).
