Hello, boy has it been a while. I looked at the last blog that I wrote and it was from summer break almost 2 years ago saying that I was back and that I would be writing much more…well here I am! Things are so hectic for me, now more than ever because I am in my last semester of nursing school (applause). I cannot wait to be done but I have much to accomplish before then. I just thought I would surprise those who follow me with a quick hello and a bit of an update in my life. Things are going swell and my time is mostly  consumed with work and school, with a little bit of reality television on select nights of the week. I have been precepting in labor and delivery and I love it…seeing the miracle of life each day that I work is so amazing and I feel very lucky. I have only just begun my work there and I have learned so much, with 12 weeks left! I hope that all is well with everyone out there and maybe I will surprise you all, and myself, with another post some time soon.

I am so happy to say that it is summer break for me! It is really nice to have time to do things and writing to all of you is what I will be trying to do a lot of! These last few months have pretty much forced me to fall off the face of the earth, which has been hard. I finished my last final yesterday and I am proud to say that I finished the school year with a bang! I got great grades and I am proud of myself for how hard I worked. I am in the midst of packing, although I will be homeless for the next couple of days, I am excited to move into a house on the first!

There will more posts to follow I just wanted to update those who will read this that I am back! yay!

Only 23 days until summer and I am so excited. The school year is winding down quickly for me and I am thrilled that I will get to have my life back. I am working full time for the summer but I am so excited to not have homework. Life has been pretty crazy this semester, therefore, I have lost touch with a lot of people and even a little bit with myself…it seems like I am always doing homework and studying, but hey, the life of a nursing student. I have several goals for the summer and I thought that I would list just a few:

1. Read. I have missed reading recreationally so much. Every now and then I will get a night where I will spend 20-30 minutes reading, but it is rare.

2. See family and friends at least once a week. I will be working full time but I am hoping that the weekends will bring me some freedom and with the fact that I am staying in Tacoma over the summer, I am really going to try to get together with the people who mean the most to me.

3. RELAX. I do not want stress in my life over summer.

4. Enjoy myself.

Those are just a few of my goals and it will be interesting to see what working full time will bring to me. I have never worked full time and and I am really looking forward to the paychecks 🙂

I hope everyone is having a great beginning to their May and who knows, the next time I get time to post something, it may be summer!

I have been very busy as of late (what is new?) and today I needed a little pick me up; this did the trick.

School consumes my life and I decided that I need to take some time to post a blog to keep my sanity…

I recently started a new job and the other day we went to the Pacific Science Center! I have never been before and it was really fun! I wanted to share some of my pictures that I took in the butterfly house.

I took a ton of pictures but these were my favorites.

In other news, this week was long one. My cousin gave birth to her beautiful baby girl, Addison, on Tuesday morning, which is most of the reason why my week was long. She went into labor on Easter Sunday and then went into the hospital Monday morning between 2:30 and 3:00 am. I was positive that she would have the baby before I got out of class at 3:00 pm that day…she did not. I went to the hospital to be there for the big show and was there for about 16 hours before Addison finally made her arrival at 6:44 on Tuesday morning. I had to drive back to school around 7:30 that morning and I was so thankful that I did not have class that day…I would have died. That lack of sleep really set me back for the rest of the week but I have caught up as of now and it was so worth it to be able to be there when Addison was born. I hope that everyone has had a great week and has a wonderful weekend!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope that everyone has a wonderful day and for those of us here in the Pacific Northwest, I hope that the weather is not too bad!

I am experiencing a bit of writer’s block at the moment. It is quite depressing, considering I have the time and I would like to make use of it.

Today was another glorious day of break. I did homework for a good chunk of the day, which was good; I needed to get some things done. The best part of my day was my massage. It. Was. Amazing.

I hope that everyone has had a great week and have a great Friday!

I will leave you with this little gem…
