It has been a while since I have written a blog, or even been on wordpress. Things have been so crazy. School is going great and I am so proud of myself for how well I have been doing in my classes. I have been working so hard and when things work out the way that I want them to, I feel like I am on top of the world. I have been working on my college applications and thinking a lot about what is going to be happening in this next year. It is scary but really exciting. My main goal is to get into the University of Washington nursing program. I am applying to other schools as well but my number one choice is the University of Washington. So I kept telling myself for the longest time that I probably was not going to get in because I did not have a 4.0 and being negative about my ability to get into the program. The more that I have been looking at the school and looking at my grades and what they are looking for, I have decided that those negative thoughts were completely wrong. I am so passionate about being a pediatric nurse and I have been working so hard to be able to end up there in a few years and having negative thoughts and telling myself that I was not going to be able to do it was going to make sure that it wouldn’t happen for me. 

I was talking to my mom about being excited about applying to colleges and I cannot wait to go to nursing school and she told me that I should make a vision board. I just thought to myself Wow, that sounds really lame and unproductive. But she told me that she has heard a lot of people talk about how vision boards have worked for them, one of her co-workers made a vision board for his horse to place as one of the top in the nation and the horse placed tenth. I was still skeptical about it though. I did not even know what a vision board really even consisted of. All you have to do is just put pictures or symbols of what you want to acheive on the “board”, look at it for a few minutes everyday, and Shazam: Your dreams come true! It seems pretty amazing and silly and a little bit like a joke. It has to with the laws of attraction and just attracting the things that you want to you. If you have positive thoughts about it, it will happen. If you are negative, it will not. It is very simple. So I tried this laws of attraction theory out on my Anatomy and Physiology test. I just told myself that I was going to get an “A”. I told myself this often. Every time that I studied I said, “I am going to get an ‘A’ on this test.” Every time that I got frustrated with the material I just told myself, “I am giong to get an ‘A’ on this test.” I studied like I normally would, I didn’t study any more or less than I usually would, and Shazam: I got an “A”. So that is when I started putting my vision board together. It is still in progress but it looks good so far!

So that is my vision and in a few months, Shazam: I will be accepted to nursing school. Just like that. Haha. It sound so silly but it actually works. You should try it, maybe without the Shazam part though.

I NEED TO VENT AND SCREAM AND MAKE MYSELF FEEL BETTER. I have been preparing myself for applying to colleges this year and its kicking my butt and I haven’t even started. I was feeling pretty good about the classes that I was taking and all of the credits were going to transfer without a problem; I might be wrong. I still dont know, I have to get a hold of somone at the college to find out if I have to take more classes so that all of the bases will be covered. I was really stressed about it last night and I got some sleep and have been working on it again today so I feel a little bit better but I am still a little worried. It is probably a little silly to be worried so much about it because nursing applications for my schools haven’t even been released yet, but I really want to get a head start because I REALLY need/want to get in. I should be fine. Whew, now I really feel better. I hope it all works out. Oh I think it will.

So my entire reasoning for making a blog was because I felt like I had so much to say and, of course, once I get on here I feel like I have nothing to say. I guess blogging is simply the jounaling of the future.

One thing that I do want to say is that I just love my life. It seems kind of cliche, I suppose, for someone to say that they love their life, but I really do. I was just helping Kimmi pack to go to school and just thinking about some of the memories that we have had and memories that I have had with other people and how they have all added up to give me this wonderful life is amazing. The longer that I go to college and the more people that I meet and the more friends that I lose, no matter how bad I may think it is at the time, I think about the things that I do have in my life right this second and it is amazing. I have a best friend who is fun and loveable, a boyfriend who is perfect, and a family who loves me no matter what I do. Not many people have that all at one time in their lives and not many people have that at all. Not to mention my savior, with out Jesus, I would not have this life. And this leftover chinese food that I am eating right now isn’t bad either.

So with that being said, I guess I have let everyone know a bit about me, and I have gotten some of my thoughts out, wordpress is fullfilling its purpose for me.  And all in all I don’t think that it sounds too lame, it is my first blog after all, give me a break. But in any event, thanks for reading, if you made it this far, and I hope that my up and coming blogs are way more exciting. Cross your fingers.
