No, not McDonalds. I am loving the song Somewhere We Only Know by Keane more than anything right now! I was inspired to purchase it after watching He’s Just Not That Into You last week and I cannot get enough of it.

School is pretty crazy right now, trying to do a class in four weeks is a very big commitment; it is like having a full load of classes. I only have 2 weeks left and I cannot wait to get back to nursing classes.

A couple of other things that I have been meaning to say:

1. Fanny Packs should be bannished. It disturbs and frustrates me when I see people wearing them, please stop trying to bring them back into style, they will never make it.  I saw a girl at a basketball game yesterday wearing one and she was really trying hard to make a fashion statement with it and I just really wanted to ask her to take it off and burn it…it may seem harsh but they bother me.

2. Congratulations Cindy on your new baby boy!  I cannot wait to meet him!

3. I am so thankful that it is a 3 day weekend. Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

I will leave you will the video for Somewhere We Only Know…unfortunately, it cuts the end of the song off(what can you do?) ENJOY!

but I am glad. It has been sooo long since my last blog. The last few weeks of class were crazy with clinicals and papers due every week and then finals…needless to say I had zero time to blog. I have also had zero time to do anything. I feel sad because last weekend I had something planned for every day and I ended up having to miss a christmas party and a celebration/open house for Jennifer’s Lil Love. However, I will add that I am really proud of my self for finishing the semester strong and doing really well in my classes. So without further ado, some things I need to update you on:

1. I am on break!!! It is really nice to have no work or school, only fun!

2. I only have 5 more semesters of nursing school. This semester went by so fast that it is crazy to think that I only have 5 more semesters that will go by just as fast…and then I will be a nurse!

3. I am sick. 😦 It is only a cold and I am getting over it rather quickly but congestion bites the big one.

4. I only have 2 more christmas presents to buy (which is amazing considering I buy for about 15 people).

5. The boyfriend went to Florida yesterday, lucky dog. I miss him though.

6. I am sure there is more but this is just a quick overview and I have to get ready to go pick my brother up from school. It is good to be back blogging and since I have so much free time on my hands I will definitely be blogging every day until at least January.

7. On one last note, and perhaps a blog for tomorrow, I have been stressed so much about technical official transcript things that it is really nice to be on break, away from school, and not have to worry about it.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day I will be back tomorrow!

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.
